new elements

My poor house: It has been ages that I gave it some attention! I have no spare time for styling, painting, sewing or to go treasure hunting in thrift stores.

Since there will be a photo shoot this Wednesday I got a little does my house look through the eyes of people who don't live in it? Sian Williams and Brent Darby come all the way from London, for my house that is so tiny and furnished practically....

Well, we gave our house some love last week: my husband finally finished tiling the bathroom (after 10 years, no kidding!), I hung new roller blinds in the bedroom and I went on several nightly treasure hunts on the internet.

I had bought the paper lampshade already some time ago and last week we placed it in our bedroom. The lovely sixties glass lamps I found at Lamplord (I just checked, they still have 2 pcs, look under 'lampenkappen'!)
Bought these awesome HAY-cushions at BijzonderMOOI* last week. Fell in love with them from the first minute I saw them last winter. The Kvadrat fabric is wonderful, the shape is great and I love the fabric buttons!
If you've been here before you might know the cottage houses by Ontwerpduo, I wrote about them in this post last year. I was actually looking for the right pot and the right plant to go with this little paper-village.
I found a large vintage plant-bowl and the right plant to go with it: our new green pet, a carnivorous plant!


  1. Het ziet er prachtig uit, het wordt vast een heel mooie fotoshoot! Sterkte ermee!

  2. Wat heeeeeerlijk! En wat grappig om je zo in het wild tegen te komen <3

  3. PS. Je keramiek was zooooo coool!!!

  4. Mooi, die huisjes van papier.

  5. Niks om nerveus over te worden, ziet er erg welkom, leefbaar en gezellig uit hoor Jurianne, gr een Hippe Kip...

  6. Those little paper houses are too cool! What's the upcoming photo shoot for?

    1. Every time I look at the paper planthouses I feel like a giant, the world upside down!
      The photo shoot was not for any magazine in particular, both Brent and Sian are freelancers, they sell to all the well known magazines in the UK.

  7. I haven't visited your blog for ages. It's always lovely when I do. Lovely stuff x


Allways happy if you leave me a note!
