New logo Savanna Interior!

Logo Savanna Interior

Great new logo for Savanna Interior

Happy with my new logo! It was chosen from 189(!) entries in my design contest at 99designs. What a great concept!

For me Savanna stands for simplicity, creativity, peace, unpredictability and nature. All values I cherish in my work. And of course since I have lived in South Africa it always brings back sweet old memories.

Autoban design

Visiting Istanbul I wanted to take a look at the gallery of Autoban. Autoban is an Istanbul based design studio, developing architectural and interior projects along with product designs. Great products, great designs. Unfortunately I didn't make it, so I am glad to have found out that the products by Autoban are also available in the Netherlands, at Suite Wood.



Examples of designs by Autoban
1 Architecture of The House Cafe in a shopping mall in Istanbul
2 Suite bed was selected as best bed in the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2012, Domestic Design Category
3 Interior design of contemporary boutique hotel Witt in Istanbul

My Italian dream!

Great Italian design by B&B Italia
Definitely on top of my wish list! How I like the beautiful collection RAY by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia. The 2010 collection is now enriched with three new elements. I especially like the contrasting blanket stitching and the elegant foot in bronzed nickel painted aluminum.

Autumn inspiration!

1) Still waiting for summer

Still waiting for the sun to shine, longing for summer! H&M presents some summer inspiration images accompanying their Home collection for Summer 2012. Lots of white washed hues, blue accents and soft linen, creating a feeling of natural freshness. Love it!

2) New Home collection for kids

Next Autumn H&M introduces a home collection for kids and babies. Love the animal and log cushions, colorful plaids and beddings and sweet baby products! Can't wait, forget about summer, let Autumn start early this year!

3) Autumn Home collection

The Autumn Home collection 2012 contains three different looks of which one is shown above. I like the glamourous style and use of metallic colors and purple as well as the patterns inspired by the 1920s.

Perfect book shelf!

TarGetBooks Shelf by Mebrure Oral

My bedroom is scattered with books to read and books that have been read but never reached the bookcase again. And of course all mixed up. How happy I was to find this perfect book shelf! Lots of place to storage books and easy organized as "will be read" and "has been read".

Great design by Mebrure Oral. The next few days I will be visiting Istanbul, residence of Mebrure Oral and other great Turkish designers. Looking forward to inspirational visits to galleries and show rooms!

New PS 2012 collection

With PS 2012 IKEA launched the seventh PS design collection. As a result 49 new design products came to light. How I like products like the bright colored rugs made of connected circles, the dining table made of bamboo or the great pendant lamp.

DIY mini pond

Very easy way to brighten up your garden. All you need is a nice flowerpot, some bricks (to place the plants on) and water plants. Dig it in, place some stones around the pot and lots of water loving animals will visit your garden!

Idea from Great gardens for kids by Clare Matthews

Nothing more relaxing and rewarding than making your own interior accessories. I made these cushion covers from Zpagetti and Ribbon XL, available at Hoooked.

Paola Navone

Another great book: full of great impressions of the work of architect and designer Paola Navone. Love the way her traveling experiences and passion for craft traditions of various cultures are shimmering through her designs.
