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?
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!

Thanks a lot to De Morgen Magazine who featured our home in their Interior Special, some weeks ago! For those who didn’t read the article, I give you a glimpse of our ’30s apartment, in the city centre of Antwerp. White walls, soaped wooden floors, and a lot of natural light are the main ingredients of our home / creative studio.
When I met Joëlle and Julie for the first time, we immediately felt a connection. We share a common passion for minimal and authentic designs. They are the enthusiastic and creative team behind ‘Cazelle‘, a company specialized in interior, styling and objects. For the realization of their interiors, they choose every piece of furniture and decoration very carefully with there impeccable taste. A selection of this objects will be for sale this weekend at the ‘Kabane private sale’ in Zomergem.

In the interior and design trends, brass and copper have stolen the show for a few years now. I am totally happy with that, but for me it is important that a design is more than just a trend. Those adorable objects are all handmade in Japan and the product of a tradition. The diamond shaped paperweight and the chopstick rests are the result of a collaboration between designer Oji Masanori and the 114-year old Japanese foundry Futagami. The massive brass is raw textured. The spoon is been hand shaped by Reiko Fujimoto within a small studio in Osaka. I am totally in love with the hammered texture. This objects celebrate the idea of imperfection with the brass material finding new patina and character as it ages… I enjoy this lovely livingware everyday, and I am sure we will be using them for many years!
