K i d s T u e s d a y | Make every day a sunny day at the ocean with this themed kids room

I've been a fan from I Love My Type since the very early hours. It is nice to see they have such a fun kids collection with contemporary colours and fun images. Happiness guaranteed! In this room design the print is right there in the centre as it was the inspiration for the theme, the guideline for the colour pallet and a fun item to decorate the room with. I really like the pale colours.

Throwback Thursday.... my view on 'back to the future' in a Dutch interior style

Remember the old Dutch interiors. You would find a Persian rug on the dining table with a large lamp hanging over it, wooden chairs and lot's of Delfts blauw plates on the wall. I can almost smell these interiors as they had a weird moody dark smell. But what if we take some inspiration from that period, turn on the light, add some modern look and feel to it. This is what I would come up with. Cute for a kids room (the chair is child size) with an instant fun atmosphere.

Throwback Thursday is a new feature on my blog. I am hoping to show a variety of posts on these days combining popular early blogging days posts (so basically a repost), designs with styles inspired from the past (like this post) en sweet anecdotes from my own past. Let's enjoy #throwbackthursday from now on.

Hello there.... Shake off the lazy dust it is 2018 and I need to get cracking

Is it a good way to start the year with an apology? Hmmm. not sure. However I have been offline a bit longer than I had anticipated. The reason was great. I enjoyed the holidays with family and got caught up in the laughter and relax with my children. Call it 'off line quality time' if you like. No harm in that right?

After that bubble of relaxation it is difficult to find your ON switch again specially if you are working from home. I have created several e-designs that after a good few hours of putting together could go straight to the bin. And when a collage works it just seems to fall together on your screen. So again, excited and keen to keep growing, improving, and becoming more professional at this. Care to join me for the ride? Onward to a great 2018! May it be a successful year 'FOR THE BRAVE, THE WILD ONES. THE PEACE-MAKERS & THE DAY DREAMERS'.

Watch the magic happen where styles clash and collide as they slowly grow on you and may one day become a part of your home.
