Today I ♥ a holiday home in the UK

This renovated barn was on the cover of Elle deco Italy last month and the white painted brick walls attracted my attention. It's great inspiration for a project were I'm working on right now.
When you take a closer look you see one wall is covered with white wash wood what adds warmth to do hard materials of the base. The combination of the clean and light base work well with the scandinavian furniture. I love the black large steel window frames, that's one my wishlist for me dreamhouse....

Today I ♥ a room in Saint-Tropez

French designer Christophe Pillet created the interiors of the Hotel Sezz in Saint-Tropez in France.
The combination in this design of dark wood, a lot of white, a touch of bright color and the round walls form an exciting design and a real inspiration!

Inspirational craft by Claudy Jongstra

Busy times lately, that's why I have been I bit silent....  I also went to London with my colleagues to visit inspirational food concepts, I will post about this trip later.
I wanted to post somthing about Claudy Jongstra for a long time because I love her felt work for years. Last year I went to a lecture where she told about how they work at the studio. It was really inspiring what she told about the dyeing process with the natural pigments that she grows mostly on her own farm.
The blue work is for the exhibition at the United Nations in New York that was held in february.
