Decorating Tips, Inspiration


February 8, 2010

I’ve talked about Danish home brand Bloomingville by TrendKompagniet before, but it’s been awhile and with Spring and gardening on my mind a lot lately I’ve been looking for some inspiring products that bring a breath of fresh air into the home. Bloomingville is a brand that you can find in Germany, and it is gaining in popularity like many other Danish and Swedish labels that are starting to find many loyal customers here.



This is the time of the year that I enjoy because Winter melts into clear, warm days and slowly you begin to find clothes and home accessories that fill you with the promise of flirty sundresses and brightly-colored wellies. Over the weekend I bought the cutest pale gray shoes and visited Noa Noa where you can find some of the loveliest Spring fashion ever. My white narcissus also bloomed on my windowsill after waiting several weeks though the transformation from bulb to bloom is always a pleasure to watch… I think it is because of being a gentle reminder of the patience we need to have in order to grow and blossom – beauty does not come overnight!

Don’t you enjoy the product shots from Bloomingville above? I do, though they are a bit too country for my taste I see many that I can mix and match into a more modern home with clean lines and that is what I live about Bloomingville, there is something for everyone. Did you notice the dresser in the top left photo? It looks like it was painted with light grey chalkboard paint. I love the idea of pale gray chalkboard paint, many tend to go with black chalkboard paint on the walls which is lovely but upon seeing this I think gray appeals to me a bit more right now I think. What about you?

I need to run off to teach a class for a few hours, so I’ll be back a little later…

    Hi! I love these photos. I did a blog about the same thing last week, with kind of the same comments. Love the springy feeling it awakens in me. And this is also a bit to country / romantic for my taste. But a few glimpses of it mixed with more modern pieces can be exciting! :) Have a great week.

    The white sideboard with all the little drawers is nice – I’d like something like that here at home! I also really like the chalkboard paint. Would be fun to have a kitchen wall painted with that – for grocery lists, little poems, everyday notes and for my son.

    Yes, gray! I love the idea of the chalkboard paint but would never consider black. Gray would work great!

    they are absolutely gorgeus… and yeah, I definetily prefer grey better than black… maybe it’s not as cool as black, but it is warmer and cutter!! ^_^

    I love it all!! Particularly that desk with the two industrial lights over it. A space like that would really help me to catch up on all those letters I’ve been meaning to write to faraway friends…

    Very light and airy. Beautiful styling. I can’t wait for our blooms to get brave and start poking their little heads out!

    I like the idea of grey chalkboard paint. I wonder if it would show chalk smudges less than the black? Could be great for a child’s room.

    Re: the chalk board paint – Gray is the new black – definitely fresher and more appealing to me right now. I also dig the metal magazine holder in the first row photo on the left.

    There’s truly so much about these pictures that I love and want to find away to make it a reality in my house. We just bought our first house last fall so I’ll all aflutter with ideas and inspiration. The table with the drop down sides and little drawer is perfect. It make me think of the table my mom said she had growing up that had a drawer in it where they kept the everyday silverware.

  • Reply Jennifer at NicoleJaneHome February 8, 2010 at 11:50 pm

    I was thinking of painting my main level a light grey, but after seeing these pictures, I think I might start looking at white. It really is so beautiful, and its such a wonderful backdrop for all the wonderful objects in these photos. Thank you for the inspiration

    I also love the pictures and products of Bloomingville. In fact, I love them so much that I am right now starting up my own company here in Holland to start selling them…
    I know that the dresser that you mentioned is made of zinc. First I also thought it was chalkboard paint!
    Love your blog!
