Ho ho ho… It’s Christmas time! Love to get in the holiday mood, making it cosy at home, prepare some good food and getting together with family and friends. A beautifully dressed table gives that extra touch to these gatherings. I prefer to choose for a clean and white atmosphere with a touch of holiday vibes, greenery and lots of candle lights. Bru water adds some sparkle to my table. Love how their elegant branding perfectly matches the atmosphere. How does your Christmas table looks like?
Looking for minimal Christmas cards? I designed a series of lovely greeting cards for you! And best of all, you can find them in my brand new webshop! Enjoy cosy Christmas shopping from home, and write down your warmest greetings to your beloved family and friends. Link to shop HERE!
For those who are living in Antwerp, I’m also taking part at these wonderful Christmas Pop Up Stores:
A Better Blend, Grand Bazar, 1st floor, Beddenstraat 2, 2000 Antwerpen
Pop Up Nationale, Nationalestraat 162-164, 2000 Antwerpen
In Gent you can find my cards at my favorite concept store Billie Rose, and at Kabane’s Christmas edition:
BILLIEROSE is the story of Noor and Wolf, brother and sister, sharing a positive mindset and joy of life. In their brand new concept store BILLIEROSE in Gent, they invite you to collect beautiful moment and things. Noor carefully selects the most outstanding and unique brands, going from fashion and jewelry to interior items and ceramics. Each piece fits into the less-is-more-philosophy. Wolf is the host of the BILLIEROSE café. A nice place to hang out for a delicious homemade lemonade, an extensive apero with dips, or a quick coffee ‘and passant’. This all comes together with the the wonderful interior designed by Atelier Dialect, and the elegant graphic design by Studio Posen. Well done guys!
Studio Posen, the graphic design studio by Kristel Posen, who designed The Fresh Light’s logo too, teamed up with Anna Timmermans for this exciting project. They did a wonderful job designing the logo and menu layout for restaurant Yugen, runned by sisters Chloë and Magali, which was popping up during spring time in the Japanese garden in Hasselt.

Good morning! Do you still remember the pictures and little movies I made last year of the wonderful Bed & Breakfast LEON°16 in Brussels (check it out here)? Well, here is the sequel! If you were not yet convinced by the bright interior and pastel green facade, there is one more reason why you should definitely book a night over here, the absolutely fabulous breakfast! For this stop motion video, our lovely models Janice and Daan were present again. They enjoyed the most delicious dishes, all homemade with love by owner Annelies. Bon Appetit!
Finally I found some time to share the photographs I made for Little Maurice Knitwear, the new baby collection of Veronique Leysen’s knitting label Maurice. All pieces are handmade by the Maurice grannies with loads of love and devotion. How can you not fall in love with these cute, soft and cosy knits for the little ones?? Order online, or pass by at the Maurice coffee bar in Antwerp, where you can find a beautiful shopping corner.
The little toys we used for the styling, you can find at Kids On The Docks!
