BED DESIGN (07): Chic, timeless & stylish bed designs by Nilson (NL)

Love the beautiful, elegant and chic bed designs from the Dutch company Nilson. The bed design below is so elegant in this purple color. Just love it! It's from my personal favourite color palette in purple colors. People from all over the world enjoy the wonderful comfort that Nilson beds offer. This high-quality comfort is achieved by using natural materials in order to create an unique & traditional end product. The beds have a subtle and luxurious design and are completely hand-made in the Netherlands.

The collaboration with inspiring designers and stylists has resulted in timeless and stylish design. Earlier I wrote MORE BLOGS about these fantastic high quality bed designs from Nilson. I highlighted the bed designs from the designers: Marcel Wolterinck, Remy Meijers, Robin Sluijzer, Osiris Hertman, Francois Hannes and the company FG Stijl. 

Thank you for reading this blogpost.

ARCHITECTURE: Beautiful Prints from Cities by Studio Esinam

I was inspired by the beautiful prints from Studio Esinam. Studio Esinam is a creative studio based in Sweden and was founded by art director & architect duo Josefine Lilljegren & Sebastian Gokah in the Spring of 2013. Be inspired .....

What they wrote about their beautiful prints:
'In our limited edition print series Elevations and Landmarks, we seek to capture the unique feeling of various cities around the world. Cities that most of us have some kind of relation to, but probably haven’t seen in the format of the architectural drawing. By studying the façades, directing attention to details that mostly pass unseen, we hope to touch upon qualities to the architecture that contribute to the specific feeling the city imposes on you'.
Thank you for reading this blogpost.

BRIDAL WEAR: Most stylish bride of 2015 - Beatrice Borromeo

Heiress Beatrice Borromeo had no less than five wedding dresses when she married Pierre Casiraghi in a series of events earlier this year, but this was our favourite. The micro-draped Armani gown was comprised of a deep neckline and micro draping. A spokesperson for Armani revealed that Borromeo’s train featured two antique diamond brooches in the form of wings, which are family heirlooms. What a lovely and stylish couple!
