I’m showing you so many new things on decor8 today! I hope you are having fun looking through my posts. I enjoy sharing them with you. I’m thrilled to now introduce you to a line that Irene Hoofs from the blogs BloesemLiving and B:Kids just launched – it’s called BloesemWear and is mostly jewelry at the moment and my goodness, I am in LOVE. Everything I see in her new online shop makes me swoon. I don’t know which one to order because I want everything. I’m proud of Irene and her new line. I love seeing talented bloggers expand beyond their blogs to introduce their talents and passions in new ways, especially through tangible products that we can use in daily life. Take a look at her entire collection here – in the meantime, enjoy the peek below.
I rarely write about jewelry on decor8 but since I believe necklaces are more than just something to adorn yourself with – you can place them on hooks in your bedroom, lay them casually on a ceramic dish on your dresser, etc. then I can justify blogging something as beautiful as Irene’s creations – they are also very decorative for the home. I imagine when I’m not wearing one, I’d drape it over my mirror so I could simply enjoy it daily as a decorative element. Do you put your jewelry out on display too?
I really can’t stop looking at everything. I wish I owned a shop, I’d love to carry her collection. I hope shops around the world pick up her line and she has massive success with it because I’d love to see someone like Irene go really far with her vision and creativity. Many congrats Irene!
When my dear friend Charlotee from RICE in Denmark sent me previews of her new line for Fall/Winter, I knew I had to share her bright, colorful creations. I love the styling, it’s my favorite styling I’ve seen for RICE yet and I love how fresh and happy everything looks. This is my absolute favorite photo shown below from their upcoming catalog – I adore this old wooden window and how sweetly everything is arranged. Gorgeous!
In addition to RICE, Charlotte is also the lady behind the beautiful new book, Happy Home. You may recall my book review HERE. Her style is definitely on trend being one of the four big interiors trends you’ll see this Fall/Winter – the RICE style definitely falls into the gorgeous CLASH trend that Gudy spoke about in her trends post HERE. Remember that? Gudy told us more about it, “The main message is that we need to be positive. Traditional design shall be reconducted in new colourways. Bold colours are mixed with pastels.” That’s definitely the RICE lifestyle – on trend, positive and colorful as always but also timeless because color never goes out of style, does it?
I love these colorful plastic bags for packing lunches with the dots. And who doesn’t love dots?
Tea towels with pompom fringe make any kitchen feel a little more playful, don’t you think?
These hooks are gorgeous!
I love that in addition to their melamine range, RICE is using more and more pottery. I think it looks so nice.
These bowls are so cute and I love that they are melamine because then you can prepare a mixed salad in a big plastic bag or large tupperware bowl, then go to the park and pull out these adorable bowls and serve your salad without worrying about anything getting broken – yet not sacrificing on style or resorting to paper or plastic bowls from the supermarket (which I really dislike!). I also think melamine is super practical with children for soups and cereals. Although honestly, I’d eat my morning muesli out of these bowls – no problem. They are cheerful!
These plates are super cute and fun!
I REALLY like these bento box-style containers shown above. Such a great way to pack a lunch without having to bring a bunch of little containers.
Don’t you love these colors? Any favorite products that you spot? See the entire catalog here.
Beautiful things, Charlotte – congrats on your new line and your beautiful book and its success all over the world!
I really love to shop online. I still adore shopping in person still, I’m not one of those people who only shop online now because I do love a good browse and to be inspired by a lovely shop. Plus, I find interacting with products in person so beneficial. Yet, I find equal value in online shopping and find myself doing it more and more lately as it’s also quite an efficient thing to do when your schedule is full enough as my always seems to be. Are you a fan of online shopping or in-person? I guess what I’m wondering is do you prefer one over the other? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this! I was recently contacted by Rigby & Mac in England and fell in love with thier sweet online shop. They have lots of very sweet gifts and fun things I’d not seen elsewhere before, which is rare because sometimes I believe I’ve seen it all with being online so much pinning and blogging and reviewing products. It’s always such a lovely moment when you stumble upon totally fresh finds, isn’t it?
See any favorite gifts from my selections above?
