In the picture: IPPYS woondeco! I was looking for some washi tape and presents when I found this great webshop.

The shop is categorized into three interior styles: nordic moods, down to earth and world of colors and I love all three of them.

More Design District 2012 treasures: Fonkystones

Entering Design District I immediately fell in love with the great designs of Fonkystones. It is mosaic but with the looks of graphic design. A unique way to decorate your wall, your bathroom, or even your facade. The possibilities seem endless.

An evening to remember

Last weekend I had a great dinner with friends in Düsseldorf at Monkey's West. Delicious food, beautiful interior with great pieces of art, great company and lovely wines, Definitely an evening to remember. Monkey's West is a great place to visit if you go to Düsseldorf.

Time saver

Nice message in my mailbox! starts selling kitchen and dining products!

I am always looking for time saving tips and am a big fan of web shops (and a book addict) so this is a nice one for me!

A lot of brands are available, including Riedel, Aerolatte, Iitala, Blond Amsterdam, Koziol and WMF. Great for yourself or as a gift (what about a cookbook and a tea towel?). I will go for my all time favorite set Teema by Iitala.

African RAIN

Soaps by Rain

Ever since I lived in South Africa I have this love for African products. I found these beautiful soaps at the RAIN shop in Amsterdam.

RAIN sells handmade bath and body products and hand crafted home ware made of natural ingredients with African origins. The products are made in a small rural factory in South Africa. In the store you can even make your own scrub or fill a bottle with your favorite bath foam.

Swedish antique inspiration

I bought this cute little antique barrel from Sweden at Juule (great place for Swedish antiques and Scandinavian accessories by the way). But where to put it and what will I use it for? So many great options!

What about:
1. Flowers in the kitchen?
2. Paint in the living room?
3. Soap in the bathroom?
