minister cafe

30.8.14




The Minister Cafe in Poland is based on the concept of the brand Minister Beer. The entire concept of the cafe is a combination of the visual identification of the brand and the interior of the cafe. Which they did very well. We really like the combination of concrete, wood and the soft grey fabrics. The wooden floor makes it a bit more rustic. 

So, going to Poland, visit the Minister Cafe for a cup of coffee.. or beer :)

We have a crush on these large bags by MOOSE DESIGN. All of the bags are handmade in Poland with the use of materials like felt, canvas and natural leather. The combination of the leather handles and details with the canvas from the above bags makes them our favorites.

When you need a lot of things to carry these bags will do the perfect job and look great too.

(ply)wood apartment

This Melbourne apartment you'll find beautiful materials, smart space solutions and a young home feeling. The soft colors, the use of wood and that amazing bathroom (!) are all perfectly combined. And we love the subtile use of the plants in the rooms.

NotOnlyWhite is a Dutch design brand founded in 2010 by Marike Andeweg. A beautiful collection of bathroom products that can be recognized by it's clean lines and pure and simplistic look.

Just a few weeks ago they created some inspiring new images for the NOW collection and we love to see some or our products used in the images. Some of the great products of Herbivore Botanical and our little knitted sheep, all available in our shop.

black spaghetti

16.8.14

Weekend comfort food. Black spaghetti, because it's so pretty and it taste good, with mushrooms and parmesan cheese. It's one of my favorite 'quick & easy' dishes. And it will always look delicious on any plate or bowl. 

Have a great comfy, warm weekend!

new pastels

14.8.14

We are in love with the office of the Beck Sonder Gaard team. The simplicity, the old and the new, the soft  and nude pastel colors with an industrial touch. They did a great job. 

And don't you just love to see how the colors old Eames chairs fit perfectly in this mix?

Coisa - multifunctional accessories

11.8.14

We have followed Coisa now for a while and are happy they have become our newest blogfriend. 
Coisa is a Dutch brand with multifunctional scarves. Timeless pieces that are both functional, beautiful and from high quality. The love for design and beautiful fabrics made owner Kim van der Wel decide to start this unique label. 

It all started in 2012 with the Coisa Original, a scarve, poncho, cape and cardigan in one. But we also love the Coisa square, an oversized square scarve made from the finest cotton and a bit of cashmere. Can you imagine how this feels on your skin? 

The Coisa items are not only great for the summer but also for the colder moments ahead of us so you can enjoy it endlessly. Enjoy your Coisa! And if you order now you will get this great bag for free.
