Team Belgium

By 1 22


Happy Saturday guys, hope you’re all doing well! When Juttu reached out to me to highlight their #ikkoopbelgisch pop up shop I didn’t have to think twice. My love for Belgian design runs deep, from the brands I used to sell at my own shop to the work of some of my most talented friends.


I think “support your local scene” is something we should all do more often, and even more so because starting as an entrepreneur in Belgium is definitely no joke, but that’s a whole different blogpost! So today I want to introduce you to two brands from Juttu‘s #ikkoopbelgisch pop up shop. 

Crushing on…

hese beautiful new poufs by Ferm Living landed in my inbox today, and I don’t think I have to tell you guys twice that this colour palette is completely my thing. And the velvet. And that sculptural allure they’ve got going on. So I hopped on over to the Ferm Living website and discovered that the rest of the fall/winter collection is looking pretty fine as well, and the styling is gorgeous. I wouldn’t mind that room divider to hide our recently purchased home trainer. And one of those oval poufs, drool!

PS: This room divider is the ultimate proof that lacquered finishes are back! (Called it! And planning to do something with it this fall.)

3 ways to style Arne Jacobsen’s Series 7 Chair

By 2 21


One of the most recent new items in our home are a set of Series 7 chairs in blush and rose gold. They’re a beautiful new edition of the classic by Arne Jacobsen designed in 1955, made by Republic of Fritz Hansen, and a perfect fit for our home.

Now you guys are going to have to help me choose the perfect spot for this duo. I’ve styled them in our house three ways, and I would love it if you would let me know in the comments which setup is your favourite!

Living Room Reveal

By 0 22



appy new week guys! After 3 years in our home, the living room is finally coming together and it’s making me all kinds of happy. I’m almost ashamed to show you the progress of my living room, because I have to link back to some earlier posts showing you the early stages of the space. But at the same time it’s ok, because when we bought this home there were in our mid twenties and although pinterest/instagram will have you believe otherwise sometimes, it’s okay not to have EVERYTHING from the get-go. We didn’t have the perfect furniture for the space when we moved in and it took some time to find the right things and that’s normal, it makes it so much more fun when you finally do!

Around the House #7: New In

By 0 24



i guys, hope you’re doing well! If you’re following me on Instagram Stories you may have seen that I’ve recently added two new beautiful accessories to my space from Flinders. As you may or may not know, I’m a big fan of online shopping (I even used to have mu own online boutique). As much as I like to experience a store to discover new things, when I know what I want, nothing beats finding exactly the item I need one mouse click away. I just love how I can compare all the options and not having to hear “yes, we do carry the pendant, but we don’t have the table lamp” and go home all disappointed. So I clicked together two new items I’d been lusting after for a long time and before I could blink, they were delivered and in my home! And yes, I’m super happy with them. One thing’s for sure, I’m not over brass yet. Nope, not even a little. And I’m not sure I ever will be.

Mexico in Pink

Mexico in Pink- photo journal - No Glitter No Glory

Happy sunday everyone! It’s been about a month since we got back from Mexico so I thought it was about time to share some travel memories. First up: all the beautiful pink inspiration we encountered along the way. As you may or may not recognize, there’s a lot of “Barragan Pink” in here, but I’ll focus on our memorable visits to architect Luis Barragan’s work later.

For now, indulge in the Pink of Mexico: Mostly bright, always cheerful.

Picking out our new sofa

By 0 2

allieHi guys! Our new Sofaompany acquisition has just arrived, and I’m super excited!

Dieter and I have been very into the velvet trend from day one so a while back we decided it was time to add some more velvet to our own life. So after a lot of online research, we headed over to the Sofacompany showroom in Antwerp to pick out our dose of velvet. So I thought id would be fun to show you the three options we considered before making our final choice (which you may or may not have spotted on Instagram stories when we picked it out).

Leen’s Colourful Palace in Borgerhout

By 2 0



hat to say about this house guys! Wow. I remember meeting Leen quite clearly, because she has the most distinctive personal style and I instantly loved it. Everyone always wants their style to be unique and special, but Leen’s really is, in a way that I could never see anyone else pull off her clothes in a way that she does. Except for Fran Fine and Grandma Yetta, who she says are her style icons.


I had a sneaking suspicion that Leen’s home would be equally intruiging as I caught some glimpses in Instagram pictures. So on one hot spring day last month I went over and was quite blown away. Not only by the proportions of the house, because this home has The Highest Ceilings, but most of all by the bold choices Leen and her boyfriend Kurt have made in the house. I was so overwhelmed by all the awesomeness going on that I feel I didn’t quite capture everything, probably because I was admiring the couple’s record collection, books and impressive closet space just a little too much.

Around the House #6

Hi guys! I’m back from Mexico and can’t wait to show you more of our trip!  It’s been one to remember, especially because Dieter and I came back engaged! Wowza! But more on that later, I’m rewinding a bit further to show you some changes in our home.

If you follow me on Instagram stories, you may have seen me freak out about not knowing what to do with this room right here. You see, I started painting it in Farrow & Ball Hague Blue a while back, when it was still our bedroom. We always envisioned our bedroom to be a bit of a “suite” situated next to our closet space, with only the necessities: a bed, nightstands and my vanity table. The bigger room/second bedroom served as an office for both Dieter and myself, as the smaller room was way too small for two people who work from home.

Mexico City - Luis Barragan Casa Gilardi - No Glitter No Glory


i guys, just taking a moment to check in from Mexico City! With the exception of a jetlagged first day, the trip has been beautiful and super inspiring, everything I’d hoped it would be! Mexico City is such a vibrant place, and its been wonderful discovering everything from the food to the culture, the architecture, the museums, the tropical plants… Here are some impressions from the first days of our trip, more on my Instagram and my boyfriend‘s  (or under the hashtag #ngngmexico)
