Autumn inspiration

I love this time of the year. Days already get shorter, outside temperature colder, the longing for the holiday season starts. I am really looking forward to long winter days spent at home watching movies, drinking hot chocolate, playing games with kids and friends. Can't wait to bring autumn into my home with candles, blankets and flowers. Here are some pictures I took at the Trade Mart Utrecht and HTC Expo a few weeks ago with lots of autumn inspiration!

Great junior loungers!

Last weekend I visited Interiors United, an exhibition at the Home Trade Center Nieuwegein. I went to view new Autumn and Winter collections of furniture, fabrics and accessories and to get inspired for my blog and shop. I ended up spending a great amount of time at the exhibition of the junior loungers.

The loungers are designed for children in a unique design contest organized by the Association of the Dutch Furniture Industry CBM. The contest was launched as a result of a question by Stephanie, whose sister suffers from a Mitochondrial disease. She wished a nice and comfortable lounge chair for her sister to rest in, as she spends her time in a wheelchair or a bed. 
As a result 28 designers designed 28 loungers, which will be sold by auction. The proceeds will benefit Energy4All, an organization that supports research aiming at a cure for Mitochondrial diseases. 

So please take a look, make an offer and help these children gain more energy!
