Dutch Design label Amiez

Amiez is a small and wonderful Dutch Design label. I first saw some products by this label during the Dutch Design week and thought it was lovely. Amiez's philosopy is to "create honest and original designs, based on the beauty and importance of our daily rituals and environment. Friendship and kindness as firm motivation to reach a growing group of people". Isn't that the sweetest thing? My absolute favorite piece of the collection is the Candelier low.

Dutch Design label Jules & Jeremy

Everyone knows I love to promote great Dutch Design. This time I want to present the fabulous design furniture label Jules & Jeremy. This design duo's aim is to find a balanced combination of simplicity and functionality. They like to play with contrast, structure and art. Jules & Jeremy also have a love for art. Their showroom often doubles as a art exhibition space. I think Jules & Jeremy are fab and I love their furniture designs. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

Lonny Magazine's second edition is out now!

The december issue of Lonny Magazine is here. This second edition is just as fabulous as the previous one, filled with loads of inspiration, wonderful tips, great house tours and much more. I especially like the article on Anthony Gianacakos, about how to decorate a small space with loads of style and class. I also enjoyed the story on Lisa Fine, textile designer, whose biggest inspiration is India. And ofcourse I drooled over Vanessa de Vargas bungalow (see last two pictures below). I have been reading Vanessa's blog - Turquoise - for some time now and loved the article on this great interior designer.
Click here to go to the latest issue of Lonny Magazine and enjoy a good read. To all the contributors of the mag: top job guys! Can't wait for the next edition to come out!

Let's visit... Brian Atwood

Let's visit Brian Atwood in his Milan apartment. Atwood is the creative director of accessories brand Bally. I loved his apartment right away. It is chic and stylish without being pretentious. And with Nate Berkus as his life partner it is no surprise that this place has this much character.
