You might remember my visit together with Suus, Anki, Theobert and Marloes at the Artifort factory and showroom Artifort factory and showroom visit | Dutch design. After our tour I got to choose my own Artifort product and being a fan of the industrial stools by Studio Ilse it was not a really difficult choice, although I did had a little doubt and almost choose the same chair Suus did for her home but with a new leather chair in the pipeline I went for the stools.

Beside them being really beautifulI land totally fitting my home, I love my furniture being flexible, as it gives me the chance to use it everywhere around the home. I have different tables and they would as easy fit my dining table, workspace or on the patio. Perching has hand-stitched leather saddles over a simple wire frame and come in different colours. 

Giveaway - Lilla 2.0 stool by Artifort
At Artifort I not only got to choose my own piece but may also give away an Artifort Lilla 2.0 stool by French designer Patrick Norguet, The stool is upholstered with a dark green fabric Artifort Selecte 980  with a black leather handle as pictured below.

Win a £100 voucher to spend at 'Made in Design'

A new piece of furniture at home always make me want to change things and when my new couch arrived I changed my sitting area, it's now overlooking my patio, more about that later, it feels great for Summer and it breaks the long white wall. This six meter wall is kind of the only large wall in my living and I am always looking for new solutions. A hanging sideboard is on my wish list for a long time, I haven't found the right one yet and for now I choose to add some shelves by one of my favourite Danish brands Menu

During Milan design week I visited the actual fair for a few hours and got a sneak preview of the new Menu collection and totally fall in love with the metal shelves used in the kitchen and bath area. I believe that if you use open storage space at home next to being functional it also, and for me maybe even more important, has to look really good. Made in Design, with whom I teamed up for this post has a large selection of open shelves and book cases from different design brands including my favourite Scandinavian.

I have to fall in love with pieces and next to the Menu shelves I also got myself another long time favourite from Hay. What I love most is furniture that I can use everywhere throughout my home in different settings, these coffee tables can be used around the sitting area as a coffee table, and would look great as a plant table or nightstand in the bedroom, and of course I love the metal look. If you are inspired to make some changes at home or like me, have a designer piece you always wanted but never bought, scroll down as Made in Design is giving away a voucher to one of my readers to spend at their store.

GIVEAWAY | Win a poster from the Via Martine Model collection

At home I am still moving things around, I finally painted my old table black and added it in the living as a 'side-table' to replace the small industrial one from my office, meanwhile I am moving chairs and lamps around. I love making some changes and moving things around but still haven't found the right place for everything yet. I am adding more black and I hope I will still love it when Summer is here, although I am quite confident I will because the base of my home is overall white and grey. I do want to add some more natural materials then I normally do with the season changing and I am still on the lookout for more green.

GIVEAWAY | Win a candleholder by Dutch designer Roderick Vos

For this giveaway I teamed up with Functionals, a company with a collection that really fits my idea of elegant simplicity! I am pretty sure you will know a few of the well known products that were especially designed for them, and I guess their Lloyd tables or Wendela Chairs are two of the many designs you must have come across.

Next to furniture the collection consists of different home goods designed by several Dutch and international talented designers. All products are exclusively made for Functionals and do not come in dozens of colours, and mostly just in black and white!

Free shipping - a taped towel and a giveaway on the blog
Products are sold online at and a limited number of carefully selected resellers. Because of the holidays Functionals offers a free taped towel by spending a minimum of €100 till December 17, free shipping is included with any purchase!

Paxton Candleholder giveaway
The Paxton candleholder caught my eye earlier this year and it was one of the eye catchers in a styling project I did for a storefront window. Made out of black cast aluminium it has an industrial and robust look and according to Roderick Vos a tribute to Sir Joseph Paxton, designer of the famed Crystal Palace at the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Crystal Palace launched the Industrial Revolution, and, in its own way, is the distant ancestor of Paxton.

I can't wait to add the candle holder to my own collection and am really happy to collaborate with Functionals today and run this giveaway on the blog today. Just leave a comment under this post to make a chance to win a Paxton candleholder. Good luck, a winner will be announced next week!

This year I was lucky to do some really nice travelling and after my recent trip to Norway and our beautiful day at the Fjord's, I fell in love with the many trees and their autumn colours, it was a long time ago I was so close with nature and enjoyed it so much.

Aligned with this goal, and knowing how much we appreciate hand-made products with a contemporary style these days, Cevelann only carry products woven on old style shuttle looms, made from unbleached, extra long-staple cotton. These conscious choices render their products’ softness and luxurious. 

Staying close to the meaning of their company name, all four lines carry names referring to travel and adventure, such as 'Nomad' (lightweight and subtle, truly lives up to being a travel accessory) 'Alara' (extremely soft and pure) and 'Voyager' (ideal as a shawl or home décor accessory)

GIVEAWAY | Win a set of design coat hangers

Today I love to introduce Mooi Goed to you and show you some unique designed pieces. Mooi Goed, literally meaning 'beautiful goods', designs minimalistic contemporary pieces for the home in black or white lacquered metal.

After graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven owner Christian Kocx started his own design-office designing for various brands and exhibiting at DDW and at Milan's Salone del Mobile. He believes in no-nonsense, locally produced and affordable design that should tell immediately where it is made for. His way of thinking really fits my own ideas of surrounding yourself with functional design for daily use or really love to look at.

For this small series of coat hangers, made out of a single sheet of steel and finished in black, Christian got his inspiration from tree branches and by bending certain parts functional hooks were created giving each of them a different look but still fit together.  On the site you also find a set with a matching wall sticker for the children room, allowing you to make a real statement. We have a giveaway with them at the end of the post, but let me show you some more first. 

Black steel candle
Being a collector of black candle holders only, a decision I made some years ago when discovering I had like twenty-five different ones, I love this candle. The Mooi Goed candle is all about 'form follows function' and like the coat hangers made out a single sheet of metal, by the way it is bend it looks like a candle from the past with a modern feel. One of favourite pieces from the collection.

Tea light holders
Although I love burning white candles, at some occasions like a dinner party I prefer to use tea-light holders for a cozy atmosphere. These come in black and brass adding a bit of a sparkle. The tea-light holders are sold  with three in a package, find yours here

Giveaway - win a set of Mooi Goed Coat hangers
If you would like some unique coat hangers this is the giveaway for you, they will add a little monochrome touch to your home an each hanger has a minimum of two hooks. Installing is really easy with the two matching black screws that are included. Simple leave a comment under the post and let us know where you would hang them in your home.

We will announce a winner at the end of the month on our facebook page

GIVEAWAY | A Tivoli Audio Music System Three+ for Summer fun!

Just before leaving for Spain I received an email from Tivoli if I wanted to try the new Tivoli Audio MSY3+ or maybe even take it with me on vacation. I have to admit I have always been a fan of the beautiful design of the Tivoli radio and music systems, I have spot them in magazines and on many blogs for years and always thought they were so stylish but never really had the opportunity to actually experience the sound.

Being ask not to bring to much luggage as we were travelling a lot with our team of bloggers we decided I should try it out later this summer. When having family over for a visit, we decided to hire one of those little boats to sail through the canals, and I thought this was a great opportunity to try out the Tivoli Audio MSY3+ on the go.

Tivoli Audio MSY3+ is portable stereo music systeem that streams your own music via Bluetooth, has a digital and analogue radio and a built-in lithium rechargeable batterie that lasts at least for 20 hours, perfect for our day trip! At the end of the post you get the opportunity to win your own Tivoli three+ and experience the system yourself.

Setting up the Tivoli Audio MSY3+ 
On the evening before our boat trip it was time to unpack and read the manual! I am a bit lazy in reading manuals and really go into the technical part of devices to be honest, so I was happy to start with downloading the free remote app via the iTunes (or Google-play) store.

After installing on my Iphone and wirelessly connecting via Bluetooth I could not only listen to the radio, the Tivoli automatically started scanning digital channels by the first setup, but was playing my favourite music in no time, 
Tivoli Audio MSY3+ can also be connected to your laptop or spotify. The next morning I first went to the IKEA catalogue launch and carried the Tivoli Audio MSY3+ with me in my bag, it weights only 1,83 kilo

We met up in the afternoon at the quay behind my grocery store, the great advantage of living in the formal harbour and I joined my family on the boat! We had an amazing afternoon sailing through the canals and the good thing was everyone on board could connect and share their favourite songs. 

Tivoli radio
I grew up with music and unless someone was spinning to their records, my parents always had the radio on. Being the youngest of five I grew up with all kind of music from the Beatles and Stones to Pink Floyd and later on listening to my own favourites like David Bowie and Lou Reed and many more. 

I didn't had a radio for years and I am so happy to have rediscovered listening to the radio through the 
Tivoli Audio MSY3+. It kept me company while working on my patio and I am listening to it this very moment in my kitchen. Next to the remote app I also downloaded the free Tivoli Radio App which provides direct access to the top 100 internet radio stations.   

Giveaway - Win a Tivoli Audio MSY3+ 
Are you in love with music and would you love to experience the Tivoli Audio MSY3+ for yourself this summer and take it with you outside, or maybe give it a beautiful spot at home! I teamed up with Tivoli Audio and we are giving away a Tivoli Audio MSY3+ including a beautiful wooden cabinet to one of my readers worldwide!

To enter this giveaway we love you to surf to the Tivoli Audio website and have a look at the different options, there are 3 different colours to choose from, white, black and copper and 4 different wooden cabinets to give your Tivoli an even more sophisticated look, choose from Cherry, Walnut, Black Ash or Piano White

March was pretty much all about travelling and celebrations. Celebrating my blog anniversary and celebrating life!
