back home

I had a great business trip visiting
the very big China import and export fair
in Guangzhou, China.

We spotted some very nice products for the company Oil & Vinegar and we did a great job on product development.

Now I am very happy to be back home again..

I love basic items with a nice little detail!

With the tranfer from Mimi'lou I gave the jeans jacket of my daugther a funny twist. From now on a little bird is sitting on her shoulder and on the front I placed the word 'smile'. 
It makes me smile everytime she wears it;-)!

If you are looking for the same transfer: you can buy them in my webshop on

dutch view

Today something totally different than nice products and design...
Don't you think this is a beautiful dutch picture?
I love the colours of the picture and ... I love the man on the picture:)
It's my husband Michiel at work. He is a project engineer and working on the enlargement of the harbour in Rotterdam. Called the '2e Maasvlakte'.

vintage inspiration

When you are looking for inspiration how to give old furniture a new live;
take a look at

The people from Precious know how to create the perfect new modern look. In Norway these products are very popular. All the old items they use are mostly beautiful items with a wonderful quality.
Take a look at their website yourself.

watch your coat rack

As you may know I am a fan of wall stickers, you can create very nice effects with it.
On this picture you see what you can reach with a wall sticker of a very realistic owl and his little friend!
It's very nice to integrate a sticker with a 3 dimensional item like a coat rack.

Nature is in the house..

Also have a look at the beautifull wall stickers with birds from mimi'lou in my webshop

have a seat

I am a big fan of the scandinavian brand 'House Doctor'.
At the 'woonbeurs' in Amsterdam I saw this nice stool and ofcourse it was designed by them.
Don't you just love to have a seat on it?

This brand uses nice subtile, funny details and lot's of happy colours. It's basic with a nice twist; exactly what I love and what I also try to reach with my own products.

For more information take a look at their website:

funny pillows

Take a look at the pillows of Marianne van Ooij.

She uses very nice graphic drawings and the pillows are often very funny and tell a story.

Very funny!

'wikkie' op FLAVOURITES

Flavourites, (de leukste webshops) heeft 'wikkie' geselecteerd en per 1 oktober een vermelding gegeven in de categorieen woonaccessoires en mode-accessoires... En daar ben ik erg blij mee! Check snel !

Zo, hier hebben we weer een onvervalste Flavourite webshop te pakken. Wij zijn dol op dit soort shops, waar je producten vindt die nergens anders te verkrijgen zijn. neem nou dit bordje - niet om van te eten! - waarin gaatjes geprikt zijn in de vorm van een hart. geweldig voor aan de muur en super als cadeau! Of deze: een heel gave ketting met leren bloemetjes. Dit gezien? Creatieve kunstwerkjes uit Zuid-Afrika, met teksten als 'You are my sunshine'. O... echt leuk dit.
