Remember Me?

i Folks! Remember me? Or better yet, remember my face, haha? It’s been a while since I posted my last outfit post. November 2015 to be exact. So I thought that I’d pick up where I left off, and that’s with a really really really good trench coat.

In the past few years I feel my personal style has become a lot more grown up, but perhaps also a lot more basic. I love classic, versatile pieces I can wear over and over again and don’t have to think too much about, so a lot more neutrals have found their way into my closet. This mbyM trench has been glued to my body ever since I got it, but on this particular day I combined it with a jacket from the new Polienne x Vila festival campaign featuring my friend Paulien (remember her home tour here?). It became a perfect outfit for a dinner and cocktails with friends, one of those first sunny days that energize you and makes you feel like new. Hope you guys enjoyed the first spring days!

Inside Out Ghent in Colour

Inside Out Ghent in Colour // Green walls
Yesterday I had the pleasure of discovering the new home and garden fair Inside Out in Ghent and doing a little takeover of their social media! What I loved most when I was there, is the use of colour everywhere, so I’m showing you my favorite colourful impressions of yesterday + I’m sharing my favorite stops if you want to plan your own visit next weekend. Have a look!

Joy’s Cosy Home High in the Sky

Joy's Cosy Home High in the Sky // A cute vintage Antwerp appartment //No Glitter No Glory

I

 met actress/ TV host/ social media lady Joy Anna Thielemans somewhere in 2012 via my shop and since then, I’ve kept bumping into her bright appearance both on- and offline. She became insanely popular as an actress on Flanders’ most popular TV show for the past five years and recently made the very brave decision to quit the show and go in a different direction.

Following her own path that has now brought her to new adventures in Amsterdam, but before moving there for a while, Joy renovated her flat in Antwerp and made it a beautiful relaxing home. So one saturday I packed up my camera gear and went to her little castle high in the sky for some tea, long overdue catching up and of course, snooping around with my camera.

Joy has turned her home into her own little sanctuary with a lot of personality, a wonderful place to come home to after the highly irregular workdays she has. She told me the labour of love was realised with a lot of help from her parents. In fact, when I knocked on the door her dad was in the process of helping her hang the lamps she’d just taken back to Antwerp from her new temporary home in the Netherlands.

The things I personally love most here? That Journuit sofa maybe, or the map of Antwerp on the walls. Or maybe her wall hung collection of mason jars filled with yummy nutricious foods, or that dark grey on the walls in her bedroom. And then we didn’t even talk about her view yet… Enter Joy’s lovely sanctuary and have a look for yourself!

A Spring Tablescape With Lemons

A Fresh Spring Tablescape with lemons // No Glitter No Glory // #dillekamille

H

i friends! Over the weekend I gave a workshop on table styling at Dagen Zonder Vlees Tafelt in collaboration with Dille & Kamille. Today, I recreated this tabletop and am sharing some of the tips I gave to make your tabledeco a little more sustainable. The reason I chose this topic was because Dagen Zonder Vlees (which translates to Days without meat) encourages people to go veggie for 40 days. They have organized this campaign for the past 6 years here in Belgium, but this year they wanted to kick things off with a food festival, with foodtrucks, readings and workshops to really bring the campaign to life.

Home Renovation: Black Kitchen Walls

Home Renovation: Black Walls in the Kitchen / No Glitter No Glory / Pitch Black -Farrow & Ball

H

ere I am with the reveal of our black kitchen walls! Back in the day this was our kitchen inspiration, and here was the result (holy moly, those pictures are awful!). We set out to make our kitchen black and white with a bit of a vintage twist because we kept the original Cubex cabinets, and it turned out “okay” but I never really “felt” the room because it doesn’t get much sunlight and the white walls made the space feel quite drab.

Moody Kitchen Inspiration // No Glitter No Glory

B

efore I show you guys the result of my little kitchen makeover with Farrow & Ball, I thought I’d show you some inspirational images that sparked my decision to go for a moody vibe.

The kitchen doesn’t get much natural light, which is actually exactly the reason why I wanted to go for darker walls, as the white just really felt drab in this space. I’m so excited to show you the results, but have a look at this inspiration first! Have a happy weekend!

DIY Mudcloth Inspired Pillows / No Glitter No Glory

i guys! I’ve been swooning over Mud Cloth fabrics lately, and I know I’m not the only one. While we invested quite a lot in the indigo dyed pillows in our cinema room, I wasn’t quite sure this love affair would last long enough to really invest in, so I went ahead and made a DIY alternative for our living room.

The 15 minute fireplace upgrade that makes all the difference! / No Glitter No Glory

H

i guys, how have you been? I’ve been struggling a bit with winter blues over here. The lack of sunshine in Belgium is definitely bugging me. It happens every year around this time and while last year I was lucky enough to beat my blues with a whole week in Barcelona, this year we’re staying put for the first months of the year (although we have trips planned later this year).

So I’m dreaming of my sunny getaway and infusing some happy vibes inside our home. My preferred way of doing so involves a lot of flowers and DIY, as you may know if you’ve been following me for a while. After visiting my friend Sarah’s amazing new place, I fell in love with her moody walls and thought my home needed less white walls and more punch. Luckily, my friends at Farrow & Ball agreed, and we made arrangements for two projects. The paint arrived on monday, and in just two evenings I have finished my first project: transforming my kitchen with a coat of Pitch Black. It looks amazing and I can not wait to photograph the space and show you! There’s a little preview on instagram right here.

Since I had some Pitch Black left I used it for a 15 minute revamp of our fireplace. It adds a bit of much needed contrast in the living room. Both the boyfriend and I love it, as it feels a lot more luxurious. What do you think? Do you like it better now or before?

 met Paulien back in my early fashion blogging days and she was still very very young. We attended the same events, and I saw her become the ultimate ambassador for laid back chic you regularly bump into on Pinterest today. Trough the years, our paths kept crossing on- and offline, and I got to know her as the cool no-nonsense girl she is, beautiful both inside and out. I’ve been telling everyone she’s the rising star to watch for years, and I’m pleased to say I haven’t been proven wrong just yet!

Rebecca Judd's Modern Pink Bathroom / No Glitter no Glory

P

ink has become a recurring theme here on the blog, so I think it won’t come as a surprise that when I spotted this space on pinterest, my heart skipped a beat. Such lovely combination of pink, marble and brass (although my own preference is still brushed brass) . This feminine space is the ensuite bathroom of Australian model & TV presenter Rebecca Judd, designed in cooperation with Aimee Tarulli. Turns out the marble is actually a porcelain slab but it works equally well, doesn’t it? (And it’s supposedly easier to take care of.) I think the brass corners are my favorite little detail here.
