Bloomingville by TrendKompagniet

November 13, 2009

So. I’ve been trying to locate a silver or black mirror to go above my dresser and I found a lovely one at Esplanade (a store in my neighborhood) and when I flipped it over I noticed the brand: Bloomingville. Hmmmm I thought. I googled it and found their website which has many beautiful products from Danish company TrendKompagniet. Bloomingville is part of their company specializing in home goods.

If you pay attention to the details, you may notice subtle differences from how you arrange things in your part of the world. In northern Germany where I live, this one of many styles for seasonal decor, one of many because you have (like any country) lots of people with a variety of tastes and backgrounds so the decor varies by home. But, this is one style that is very popular in the part of the city where I live — I find shops with many of these products or ones identical to them. Some of these accessories include mercury glass, candles in many shades, white porcelain, and the colors gray and lilac along with many ethnic influences and details like punched tin and sweet little motifs — deer, mushrooms and snowflakes to name a few.

My friends like to use found items for decorating too – and traditional pine is another element brought into the home and displayed on a coffee table next to a platter or included in a floral arrangement for instance. Candles are used very informally, not just for fancy dinner parties or special occasions. I have candles burning most days — they warm the heart and heat the space. I love candles and burn them twice as much now that I live in this part of the world. I have two silver antique candelabras on the windowsill in my living room with gray candles that I love and light almost daily as it starts to get dark now around 4:15 each day. But I like it, the mood is serene and charming.

I really, really like the decal accent on the weathered bench above. Did you see that? It is great idea to give a bench a hand painted feel for those who don’t have a steady hand to diy it. Try a decal inside. Brilliant! This makes me like decals a little bit more because I never in my life thought to stick on on a rustic bench.

So, there you have it — Bloomingville products. Do you like this style?

By the way… If you’re a interiors stylist and are lucky enough to live nearby to them in Herning, Denmark well I have good news for you — they’re hiring a product stylist! More information here.

And you love what you see shown above, you can shop for these items on Madam Tut and Landstil.

Soothing and elegant, right?

    Hi there I love your ideas and blog. I need your advice, what do you do with people that copy your ideas and never give you credit for them nor acknowledge you as the one that inspired them. I have seen many get so far ahead on other people backs. do you confront them and ask them to stop or do you just hope that they would go away. I know this sound childish but pls tell me how you handle it I have a menace that I can not seem to get rid of. I come up with all sort of ideas for private clients and they want me to start a web site but I can not seem to overcome the copy cats. pls any advice will help me greatly
    Many thanks

      Moreen — This post is about Bloomingville and decorating so maybe you’ve left your comment on the wrong post? I don’t see how this fits…
      Or are you just asking me to post this as a new discussion topic for the “Talk It Out” column on Thursdays? Just let me know and I’ll see what I can do to help!

    This style has a simple elegance to it. I had to look for the decal on the bench, but once I found it, I wondered how I could have missed it. It’s really a lovely, subtle touch to the bench. All of the images really are swoon worthy!

    I love this style…my father is Danish and so I have grown up with this style my whole life…it’s a very simple way of living, and many of the homes as you know are painted white and accented with natural colours and silvers.
    Lovely post!

    So gorgeous. I love the mercury glass and pale tones for the holidays- so lovely and elegant ! I’m so inspired now :)

    So nice to se one of my favorites on youre blog.
    Blogging from Norway I can truky say this is the trend here now.
    We have always been big on rustic wood and taken elements from the nature inside,so I think this style comes very naturally for many of us.

    Wish you a nice weekend and hope it is ok to put you on my bloglist…?:)

    Best regards
    Gunn

    Those mushrooms make me cry!
    Esplanade is such a wonderful place (full of mushrooms, of course :) – I totally love the huge closet in the back room. And those evil Rice bowls, standing everywhere, whispering “Buy me”!
    The images remind me of Impressionen as well as Living&More. I definitely like the style, however, I wouldn’t like to live in a catalogue-like place and I’m afraid there are just too many people out there turning their homes into shabby chic clones.

    I just swooned…and yes, I used the word “swoon”…went directly to their website, looked at the catalog, swooned yet again. Oh, I wish I could buy there stuff here in the US. Not just the home wares, the catalog had this amazing turtleneck, knit capelet / shrug thingy…I want it! lol

    I DO like the aesthetic captured in the photographs. I’m a big fan of neutrals and natural or bare design with a few hints of indulgence (like the silver items, for instance).

    I adore the weathered branches decorated with mushrooms. It’s such a simple, beautiful, and inexpensive idea. For Easter, you can decorate eggs and hang them with ribbon off the branches- it looks magical!

    mmmm Northern German Adventzeit. Just before Advent starts, the most beautiful things come out in Northern Germany… as you show here. I remember well those 4 in the afternoon dark moments which I would pass with friends with a pot of hibiscus tea and cookies and lit candles. One thing I do love about Germany is that Advent really and truly means something. Have you seen all the cool ideas for Advent Calenders? Where people make 24 little pockets and gifts for every day out of the most amazing things? Or some of the really gorgeous four-candle Advent wreaths people make (there are a lot of average ones but some are spectacular!)? The atrociously dark days of winter in your corner of the world are really brought to life through the magic of decoration and sharing this time of year– sharing time, tiny gifts, and good cheer.

    I became a candle freak in Germany and have never looked back, ever. :)
    Shoenes Wochenende…

    I love this style, it’s very beautiful yet very relaxing too. The mercure candlesticks we have on B&F are by French company Cote Bastide and they’ve always been very popular. At home I’ve mixed mine with vintage silver one I found at flea markets…

    I love the candles in the second grouping of images – what a great idea for a modern advent wreath.

    Heck, I love all of these products! If only their website gave a clearer picture of where they might be available in the US.

    I love the style (but since I’m Danish, it’s maybe in my blood :-)). Candles are such an important part of the mood – and especially the Danish “hygge”, which is a special mood you need when you live in a cold, dark place of the world, then you curl up with a warm blanket, warm some cocoa and light the candles. Reading your blog can be “hygge” as well.

    Mushrooms as decor – love that they’re earthy and fanciful all at once.

    I burn candles only to mask cooking odors, but think I’m missing out on their beauty and warmth.

    I have several real silver candlesticks sitting in storage. I will take them out and watch the wax build its history as time passes. The burning process almost becomes a method for measuring time – time joyfully spent, that is!
