Flower crown

Voila, this is me: a very happy, relaxed bride with a lovely handmade flower crown ♥ 

DIY Paper napkin ring

Having a dinner party soon? An easypeasy idea for your napkins. Your guests will feel very welcome! :) What you need is some craft paper, golden heart stickers, cord, paper tags and as a finishing touch a stamp... it's great when you have your own stamp ( I ordered one here). But don't you worry, you really can live without it. Use some allover printed paper instead of craft paper. Voila, have a cosy dinner!

Localilo in Paris

Last week I celebrated my 'lune de miel' ( love this word) in Paris. It was so nice to be back in this beautiful city! Actually we did nothing more then eat, eat, have a wine or two and eat again. So in this new and fresh Localilo report I am showing you some lovely spots!

* eat: La Duree, maybe unnecessary to say, but really.... they absolutely make the best macarons and tarte du framboise you ever had! Eat it on a good & lovely spot somewhere in Paris and your day will be fabulous.


( Oh my, the raspberries were even bigger then my thumb!!! 

And you must visit Au merveilleux de Fred... and treat yourself on the most perfect soft, crunchy, sticky meringues of this planet or their perfect puffy crunchy and chocolate 'merveilleux'. mmm...




* restaurant: eating in Paris, I love it! Just to give you some great ideas of the hundreds of possibilities: La maison mereLe train bleu, Rose bakery Marais, Hotel l'amour.

* shop: Merci, a beautiful concept store with 3 floors where you'll find pretty goodies, beautiful clothes ( unfortunately a bit expensive) a nice cafe and restaurant and where you can sniff around for hours. And because of the rain it was the perfect afternoon activity somewhere in the 3th arrondissement.




* sleep: Hotel Joyce, a lovely stylish hotel in the middle of the 9th arrondissement. Light beautiful rooms, design, free WiFi and a perfect breakfast.



* guide: GoGoparis, with this handy app on your phone you'll be as in-the-know as any Parisian about what's happening around town now. Written by a Paris-based team, the guide has a special focus on local designers, independent boutiques, small neighborhood bars and fresh new restaurants.

Christmas in spring!

While the birds are singing their spring songs and the sun is trying to shine again I'm singing Jingle bells falalalalalalalala in my studio. I'm currently working on a Christmas concept for Rice! J! Life of a designer can be upside down and that's exactly the thing that I like about my work. I'm surrounded by happy colourful christmas products from their last x-mas collection, a big pot of tea and some burning candles to get in the mood. Hohoho, merry christmas!

Sjoesjoe table decoration

A wedding can be very expensive!! So I thought up some lovely simple and cheap ideas for our wedding decoration. It really looked great and original! For the tables I used craft paper and I decorated it with nice illustrations about love, spring, welcoming friends and celebration. We used little apple juice bottles for the flowers ( it was actually a pretty nice job to drink 60 little bottles of fresh juice) and I created some menu cards. For the paper napkins I printed some strips and folded it around the napkin. Tada!

Let's party on a grey sunday afternoon

On a grey sunday afternoon, somewhere in Belgium, we drove true this street. Lots and lots of colourful fabric garlands decorating this quiet little street. A lovely unexpected surprise! I imagine that people living here have a happy party feeling when they step out of there front doors every day. Maybe nice to do in my own little street in Amsterdam too, would love to have a guaranteed party boost in front of my house :)
