A touch of Softness

Thinking about restyling my interior, I have some ideas about making it lighter and more sweet. I’ve been obsessing about this Soft Pink color for a while now and would love to integrate this in my home. Especially for the bedroom, making it more romantic but still modern and stylish.

Graph coffee

Graph+Coffee+Chiang+MaiIf you come to visit Thailand, you have to stop by Chiang Mai. It’s a cute city with a lot to offer. Cool trendy bars, restaurants and coffee places. Even though Thailand isn’t exactly famous for their coffee, I can say the dark battery acid did me good. While preparing my trips I always make a Pinboard on Pinterest with places to go in every city & town. So every morning – afternoon and evening I choose a new place to eat – drink or chill out.

While walking through Chiang Mai you can find the cutest mini coffee places, but one just stuck to me. Graph is a small industrial looking coffee cafe with great coffee, hot and iced. With it’s intimate atmosphere and vintage interior you can chill here for hours. Hearing the sound of the fresh beans going into the coffee machine and smell the homemade baked goods.

BEANS, COTTON & THINGS

Portrait is one of my favorite stores in Haarlem, Netherlands. It´s a place where people come to work, shop, talk and to have a nice cup of coffee. Karen, Daisy and Rogier created a space where small  & local entrepreneurships, fashion labels and interior comes together.

Every inch of this old horse stable is designed and looks amazing. If you visit Haarlem, you definitely have to stop and drink a coffee here. Just to enjoy the store and the lovely store owners.

A little bit of Christmas..

Christmas is the happiest time of the year and that has to be created at home with warm and cozy elements. Create a beautiful atmosphere with black & white. Cut Christmas trees out of a black paper or make one out of photos, paint white balls with black paint or sew a pillow with a great pattern.
