Children’s book illustrator, designer, just one look and you’ll fall in love with Eva Broekhuijse. I am so super fond of her felt kangaroo – a great storage solution for kids, and this gorgeous white bench with the furry tail… So magical, isn’t it? I see that in an adult space, too.
I made a promise and now it’s time to stand up and deliver. Last week, I gave you a glimpse of my findings from Dutch Design Week with my post on Lift-Off Loves… I hope that you enjoyed it! Would you like a little more design candy?
Good. I’m ready to share the many products on display at the Dutch Living Room and the Graduation Galleries. Due to sheer volume, each post will be short + sweet so we can cover everything this week. Let’s get started with a few of my favorites from the Dutch Living Room, where established designers show you what they’ve been working on behind the scenes…

I posted about Inhabit’s Pillow Design Contest in July, do you recall? Mike from Inhabit wrote in today to let me know that they’ve posted the finalists on their website and would love YOUR vote. Click here to vote!
Psst: Imelda redesigned her blog recently, too. It looks great. Nice job, Imelda!

If you want to spruce up your crib on a dime, try grabbing some iron-ons from the Dutch Trade Shop and pick one item in your home as your science project. High quality, easy to use, and wayyy cute, I’m thinking a pillow for starters, or if you feel a bit daring, try cotton or canvas curtains. You can add a few birdies, maybe 3 flying up the panel from bottom to top, just keep the design on the bottom 1/3 of one panel only so it’s cute and not overkill. An iron-on isn’t just for tees ‘n bags anymore! Just be careful, you can definitely destroy the vibe you’re going for if you apply an iron-on to everything you own. Again, be selective (I’d opt for one item) and remember, we’re going for an accent here, not the focal point of the room.
