One of my favourite blogs is ‘The Brickhouse’. I gladly like to share this beautiful interior by Morgan Satterfield, interior stylist and owner of the blog.
The Brickhouse is a true inspiration to me, really cool DIY ideas and the featured interiors are amazing. It’s always the perfect dose of retro combined with modern furniture and accessories. The little cute dog is a true ‘icon’ on the website as well. I guess it’s kind of a part of the interior and home as well right?
Enjoy her interior and make sure to check out the tumblr of the Brickhouse for a great dose of design inspiration!

I came across these pictures of a truly inspiring blog recently.
A Restless Transplant is a blog by a guy who left his design job in New York In August 2011 and bought a VW van. Since then, he has put 50.000 miles driving around west America, surfing and camping.
A thing I would love to do my whole life. Whenever I’m able to save up enough money I hope I’m able to do something like this as well. Already have so many countries on my list I want to visit. But seeing these pics, I guess I have to add a whole lot more!!
Not only his adventures are amazing and beautiful but his photographs as well. Enjoy this selection of his images, but make sure to visit his blog as well and get inspired!
Like I said before in a previous post I was going to do some new DIY projects. This is one I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while. Luckily I found this secondhand jeans jacket and African Vlisco fabric just in a quick hunt last week. Just browsed through Emmaus thrift store and found this grey jeans jacket. I actually already have a few of these jackets, but thought this one actually has a better colour to combine with an ethnic print. And lastly when searching for some sort of African patterned fabric, I came across this Vlisco piece. Never thought I would actually find something I specifically was searching for.
Vlisco is a factory here in the Netherlands that designs and makes fabrics for African countries. It’s high quality and they make the most gorgeous geometric, ethnic and colourful prints and patterns.
Here’s a short photo report of the steps I took while applying the fabric to the back of the jacket.

Only a bit more than a week to go and my festival season starts with the first edition of ‘Best Kept Secret’ festival. That means getting ready and find some fun outfits to dance in! For me festivals are my vacation this year, so I really want to make the best out of it. Let’s hope for a good dose of sun!
What’s your festival season going to be like?
Last Thursday I randomly had a morning and afternoon off. I mostly work during the whole week, so when finding out I had a free day I thought.. “what the h* am I going to do!”
Well I woke up early because of the bright sunbeams shining on my face. Started off with some exercises and a healthy smoothie breakfast. Finding myself cleaning the house after that and decided I should go and finally buy myself some stuff at IKEA. So that’s what I did. Jumped on my bike and after a 15 minutes bike ride, I walked through an almost empty store and got myself those tiny cacti plants I’ve been wanting to have for so long! Ow and a tobacco plant with the height of more than a meter.. jup I managed to get it all save home by bike. I can tell, it was fun riding my bike, the plant blocking the view a bit, but ow did I feel like mother earth haha. Anyways, I’m happy with my new plants like a little child with a new toy.
I recently bought myself some vintage tins, already thinking about filling those with cactuses. Found them all at a second hand night market. An events that takes place once a year in Tilburg, and manages the whole city centre to be full of people selling their stuff on the streets. A great concept for a night out with friends for sure!
Planting the cacti left me with some needles in my hands though but guess that’s part of the deal right! And to finish my afternoon off, I had a nice chill session at the city park. Days like this make me happy!

I’m a huge fan of turquoise and green. Especially the old mat tones. They give a nice fresh and soft touch to a living space.
I gathered a bunch of images where these tones of turquoise and green are used, all in a very original or ‘different’ way.
