Room for creation - workspacelove

A few weeks ago (see here)  I blogged about the IKEA festival at
  the Salone del Mobile and shared some images of the compact living theme.
One of the other very inspiring and harmonious places that caught my eye at the festival
 was  the Room for Creation. 

This room, with lot's of space for personal creativity and filled with great styling ideas, 
was decorated by Anna Lenskog Belfrage and I just love her beautiful and simple style!
Just perfect to start this new week... Have a happy one!

beautiful simplicity

On tropical and slow evenings like tonight, it's always a good idea to visit
 my favorite brokerage sites, while sitting in my garden and 
being inspired by their talented stylists....

love the beautiful monochrome simplicity of this small appartment 


Stockholm 2017 for IKEA

pretty blues, beautiful rattan products, soft cushions, 
warm velvet, natural shades and a stunning industrial location.... 

It's not a secret that I'm a uge admirer of the stylingprojects of Ikea Livet Hemma.
So when blog friends Jantine and Vivian (April and May) asked me if I 
would like to join their stylingproject for Studio Ikea.nl  I was sure this day 
would be filled with inspiriation and stylingfun! 
Last year Ikea.nl has teamed up with the ladies of April and May and I love the way 
how they create their sceneries and DIY projects. 
Have you seen their dollhouse created with a billy cabinet? 

A little while ago I've visited the pressevent at the launch of the
 Stockholm 2017 collection (see here) and it really was a nice surprise to see
 all these beautiful ratan items (combined with other products)
 again at the location to create a trendy - from fashion to interior - atmopshere.

Interessed in giving your home a warm atmpshere by adding a soft eye-catcher, 
as a sofa or Ottoman in velvet or combine fabric with for example pillows
 with modern, sleek and industrial items? 
You’ll find the article on Studio by IKEA here and here at April and May

Als je mijn blog al wat langer leest  is het geen verrassing dat ik een enorm bewonderaar
 van de stylingprojecten van het Ikea Livet Hemma team ben. Dus toen blog vrienden Jantine en  Vivian (April and May) vroegen of ik mee wilde kijken tijdens hun stylingproject voor
 Studio Ikea.nl wist ik zeker dat deze dag gevuld zou worden met inspiratie en
 vooral stylingfun!

Vorig jaar begon de samenwerking tussen Ikea.nl en April and May en ik vind de manier waarop zij hun inspiratiebeelden en DIY projecten creĆ«ren echt te gek! Heb je hun geweldige poppenhuis gemaakt van een billy kast al gezien? 

Een tijdje geleden was ik bij het persevent van de lancering van de Stockholm 2017 
collectie (zie hier) en het was echt een leuke verrassing om al deze mooie rotan items,  gecombineerd met andere producten weer op de locatie terug te zien waar we een warme trendy -  van mode tot interieur - sfeer creeerden in verschillende settings! 

Wil jij ook een warme trendy sfeer in je eigen huis door bijvoorbeeld een eye-catcher
 in de vorm van een fluwelen poef of een mooie bank te combineren met bijvoorbeeld 
hippe zachte kussens en strakke en industriĆ«le items? Je vindt het artikel met inspiratie
 Thanks Jantine and Vivian for such a inspiring and fun day... I just loved it!

Nendo X Componibili

 One of my first design purchases was the Componibili round by Kartell.
I just loved the timeless and original design with the simple and 
robust vertical overlapping of the single pieces and its round shapes. 

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the product 
Japanese studio Nendo has transformed cups, lamps, plants, wine bottles, 
books and more items into small vesions of this classic storage units and
 it really made me smile when I admired them at Dezeen today!

The Componibili modules have won several awards and are today represented in all 
prestigious museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art in
 New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
