Toen ik vorig jaar op Meet the Blogger de fotografieworkshop van Anki Wijnen volgde, ging er een wereld voor mij open. Je hoeft dus toch geen techneut of wiskundig wonder te zijn om de basics van fotografie te begrijpen. Lees meer

Last month, a new interior design shop opened in my hometown of Ghent: Huiszwaluw Home. It’s the second shop of Scandinavian design lover Dicky van de Velde. Her first shop, Huiszwaluw, is already well known for Scandinavian style accessories, tableware, posters, cushions and so on.
Last summer I found these colourful little bowls in the South of France. I was really happy with them. Little did I know that they were actually from a Belgian brand named Pomax. I could have saved myself the trip ;-). Since then I started following the brand and fell more and more in love with their products. Their goal customers are women between the ages of 25 and 65, with the desire to add a little personality to their homes, so I fall right into that demographic!
One of the perks of being a freelancer is that you can work wherever you want. The last few days have been quite sunny in Belgium, so I’ve exchanged my home office for the garden. In the evenings, it’s still a bit too cold to stay out. I can’t wait for those long summer nights, hanging out with friends or reading a book under the stars. What better way to make it cosy than with some beautiful garden lights?
Last year, I blogged about the new Belgian brand ‘Roomblush‘ (click here to see the blog post). A lot has happened in the past year! Designer Eline Rousseau has added lampshades, pillow cases, serving trays and posters to her collection of beautiful wallpapers. All products have the same distinctive style and colour palette, so they all mix and match. I especially love the lamp shades end serving trays!
