Ilmari Tapiovaara

Some people bring back jam or sweets from their holidays. We brought back a Mademoiselle chair designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in 1956.

I'm totally in love with my new vintage beauty. It looks great in our home.

Enjoy your Sunday,

PS: Love his books but his prints are also really nice: Rop van Mierlo.

stay summer


After all the rain the last couple of days I was so happy to escape to the beach yesterday afternoon. We had some pizza and a nice long beach walk. Just want the summer to stay.

PS: Managed to find a nice blue Ball jar. I wanted one for a long time but they are not easy to find here.

blue, blue and more blue


Crazy about the color blue.

In the last couple of weeks I got a couple of new colors for the house. Love the rich dark blues. Looking forward to start painting Raven Plume from Duplex for upstairs,
Drawing Room Blue from Farrow & Ball for my cupboard and Celadon from Sanctuary Homebase for the kitchen

Weather has changed quite a bit the last week and it is getting colder here. There is an early autumn feeling in the air and I feel like nesting.

see you,

PS: nice fashion blog capture the castle.

Dungeness Kent

We love the wilderness of Dungeness. It is such a wild, wonderful and weird place. There you find an amazing population of wild birds and some rare seaside plants.

Remember when you go to visit you treat nature with respect, so it will stay this way.

see you,

PS: must read Derek Jarman's Garden.
