All New - Online Interior Shops

16 01 2014

This weeks BIWYFI theme is "All New" and that fits our current situation perfectly.

In just a mere 6weeks we will move to the city loft!

Sometimes I can't believe we are really doing this - it's so exciting but at the same time also a bit frightening.

So much needs to be organized and planned while the apartment is still undergoing major renovations and is not finished yet.

I had so many jewelry orders and other design work to do in the last couple month that there was basically no time left to plan the interior.

Since we live in a half furnished space right now we will need a lot new furniture.

For example our old apartment has build in cabinets - which is a rare thing in Germany - but the new one hasn't. So I am looking at different cabinets right now to store our stuff.

Maybe we will end up with a sort of camping in the new place for the first weeks because I found it difficult to decide on so many important things all at once without even having a chance to develop a feeling for the new space.

At least we decided on who gets what room. It has been my priority that the kids are happy with their choice because the relocation makes them feel anxious.

Especially my ten year old daughter is afraid of the changes and feels quite insecure about how life in the city will be.

I am trying to comfort her by painting a positive outlook (which I truly believe in) and It's only 15miles away from the old village but still it will be a major change and she is old enough to know that.

In the midst of crazy planning for the things we "need" I do like to search for the pretty things - also for the sake of relaxation.

It's so nice to dream up the time when finally everything is done and in place and you get to decorate and personalize the new rooms.

Those are anyway the more important things, don't you agree :-)

So here are my inspirations and findings from last week.

How I Became An Interior Dealer - Loving HK Living

18 11 2013

By searching for interior additions to our new space 

I feel in love with Dutch company HKliving!

( I also asked you for your secret tips here and thanks so much for responding via comments and e-mails!!!

I discovered quite a few new treasures!)   

This round hanging chair looks amazing, don't you think?

I also like their unique lighting, textiles and accessories.

They really put a creative and "different" spin on their collection.

If you like, you can see their new catalogue here

But when I tried to find a dealer here in Germany to order from I found out, that there are only a few who carry HKliving products

and of those few none would carry the specific items I wanted...

So I contacted them directly in the Netherlands and they offered me to become a dealer myself!

Let me know, if you are interested in their products and I can send you the price-list.

More inspirations I found last week:

Also a beautiful (online) store based in the UK: White Punch

And another UK based business! Would you actually put a wallpaper on to create an old and worn look? I think it looks amazing on the picture but how will it look in real?

I want one!!! Genius idea!!!

Just so cozy... and I love their philosophy.

More absolutely beautiful stuff from France

Ok Ok - I HAVE to stop...

Happy Day,

This Light - of course with copper!

Or a selfmade Koushi Light .

Lot's and lot's of more ideas to make

I wonder, how these traditional swedish plastic rugs feel to the touch? Thinking to order a runner for our new long hallway.

Plastic sounds so bad, right?

And I really love wool. This rug  is from Patrick Urquiola. Of course you can't compare the costs...

Attention Fleurop - new kid on the block

Art ART Art for your wall - also on wallpaper and from your own pictures!
