The last month or so I’ve spend a lot of time working from home. I kinda like it this way, but since we don’t have a separate study room, I”m switching between my boyfriends desk, the dining table and the couch (not the most responsible posture) because the same view every day makes me a little bit bored… This whole working from home thing has made me think of creating a small working space of my own. I would like to call it a creative hideaway. And that’s where my best friend Pinterest comes in handy.
After saving all my favorite working spaces I can say that I’m in special need of a wall where I can pin, hang or stick prints, photos and post-its (light bulb!) on. I wish that one day I will be the proud owner of my own creative hideaway with lots of natural light (which means big windows!) a big, rustic wooden table with a mix of different chairs around it. And, of course, a big empty wall to start building a huge moodboard.
What would your ultimate working space look like? Or what is the number one thing you need in that study area? I would love to hear your ideas!

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! Mine was filled with lots of fun stuff. We went to the first outdoor festival in Amsterdam which was very cold (5 degrees Celsius cold) but really fun! At midnight we celebrated the fact that I was turning 26! Oh my… but went for a Easter egg hunt the next day so I didn’t get the time to feel old ;) The weekend was about friends, family, food, easter eggs, the best birthday gifts (and song!) ever and the new episode of Game of Thrones. Yay!
My boyfriend gave me some really cool vintage orange chairs for my birthday (pictures will follow soon) which made me eager to change the whole interior too. But luckely for him I’ve found enough satisfaction in getting inspiration on how to store all my fashion and interior magazines instead. Here are my five favorite ways to store your magazines.
1. Use an old wooden crate to store your favorite magazines. I love idea of combining to different sizes like the normal size and the smaller Ikea catalogue size.
2. It is very logical to use magazine racks to keep your magazines in and that’s what I love about this one. It is so simple, but by lining them all up against the wall it looks like the most clever idea ever.
3. Some magazine cover are to beautiful not the show. These racks make it possible to create your own magazine wall. I especially like the thin metal and the simple yet artistic design.
4. Make a new nightstand with a pile of magazines. I already spotted the magazine nightstand a few times before, but I think it is time to actually make one. It would make a good side table as well if you ask me.
5. If you are ever that lucky to find a beautiful vintage magazine cabinet like thise one don’t you dare not buying it. This would be the perfect way for me to keep al my favorite magazines in one place. Time for some serious thrift shopping!

I found these watercolor illustrations at Decor8 the other day and think they are really pretty. Miss Capricho is the artist behind these watercolor prints. She paints a lot of different things like the Parisienne, the butterflies and the sushi’s. I think there’s something for every eye ;) Here are my favorites!

I just wanted to share my September with you through Instagram. For me, this is a special month since it’s the beginning of autumn (means red leaves, candles, sunny days and yes… a lot of rain as well :P) and it’s the month of my moms birthday. For me it’s also a month of new beginnings. I started my mindfulness course, (almost) ended my school project and tomorrow, on the first day of October, I will start with my final internship. September also gives me the urge to change things. Like me interior, wardrobe, haircut etc. I didn’t do any of those things yet because of all the deadlines, but my to do list is waiting impatiently!
First, some of my daily little things through Instagram.
Have a lovely Sunday :)
My best friend brought me a little hummingbird all the way from Brazil!
In my beautiful home town. I love sunny autumn days and old cities.
Enjoying this seasons last outdoor festival with some good friends in Utrecht.
Finishing my wall piece for my interior project.
Getting greedy at Zara. I think I definitely need some boots since autumn already started ;)
Welcoming our new little friend Abu.
Obi’s still not sure if he likes him or not… Time will tell ;)

Birthday flowers for the best mom in the world :)
After two very personal posts this weekend, it’s time for some new inspiration. Jorrit and I started collecting some art (not the expensive one, but more like the Etsy and Pinterest ones) to decorate our place. I’m a sucker for redecorating interiors but unfortunately our apartment is too small to give in to all my urges. What we do have are some white walls with plenty of room for some nice prints and photos. We already found some nice retro prints and an arty DIY deer head (my favorite!) but this is only the beginning.
Thanks to Pinterest and my favorite blogs I find nice prints almost every day. These are my current favorites. It’s hard to choose though…
Would love to hear what you think of the prints I chose, and how you decorate your walls. If you know some great artists or found some nice prints or ideas, please feel free to share them in the comments. I would love to check them out!
Have a lovely day.
We already have this one, but it’s still one of my favorites!
