My Favorites From The New HKLiving 2016 Catalog

02 09 2015

I have been a long time fan of dutch based company HKLiving. My all time favorite piece is their hanging ball chair which you can see here on our deck.

We have two and love them so much and yes - they are comfortable to sit in! We put sheep skins in and you could add a little pillow and then it's perfect and so relaxing to sit and swing in them.

HKLiving just released their 2016 catalog and it's fabulous!

They added a lot new items next to their already great collection - especially the rugs caught my eye.

I like that the black and white round one as well as some others (the 'grid' one!) are made of cotton so you could put them in the bathroom and they are probably washable.

There is also a grey stonewashed linen rug that looks very cool. The factory lamp (here in this post over our dining room table) got a new modern matte finish - also available in white and grey.

Nice textures and surfaces and soft natural tones and materials paired with a not too heavy industrial design describes best the HkLiving vibe.

Take a look...

My Studio Space And A Little Dream

31 01 2015

I have my studio at home in a separate room.

It's working great that way because it gives me the most flexibility between family and work.

I also love to be able to close the door to my work space in the midst of the greatest chaos with no need to clean up every single day.

Meaning - it usually looks a lot messier than on these pictures :)

The past months have been great for my business. I am really grateful for having so many wonderful customers and clients appreciating creative goods.

I do worked a lot though with basically no breaks - even on the weekends - so I feel a bit tired right now.

At least I try not to be late for bedtime.

But what about a little day break, too? I know people who swear on power naps. 

The thing is, I can't imagine going to the bedroom for a twenty minute day nap.

Neither to the sofa in front of the TV.

Just the thought of it feels energy draining instead of fueling to me and it would make me feel all lazy and old.

I know, crazy, right?

BUT - if I had a daybed or sofa right in my studio THEN...it would be all different.

The nap would theoretically still count as "work" and I would not feel too guilty :-)

You think I am just trying to make up reasons to buy a daybed? Maybe.

Let me dream a bit...

I would move the wool rack back to the front right corner closer to the window where it had already been before.

And the printer could move into the little storage room right across my table to be out of sight.

Then there would be exactly enough space for a daybed.

With plenty of nice pillows.  

I like the simple look of this one for example. 

Plus it could also serve as a bed for a guest.

We do have these two convertible sleeping chairs which look fine but honestly are not really nice to sleep on.

Well - we'll see...

What about you - do you do daytime power naps if your schedule and location allows it?

Happy Day,
