Urban Jungle Bloggers: Hanging Planters

This is my fourth Urban Jungle Bloggers post and I'm very excited that I joined this cool green community a couple of months ago! It's a lot of fun to work on a different green theme every month and it's a good excuse to invest in some new plants every once in a while. I recently won the cutes book ever called "Me and my Plant" by the Dutch publisher "Snor" with the Give Away that Judith & Igor organized! How cool is that?!

This month's UJB theme is "Hanging Planters". With some Zpagetti cord & two baskets I made these hanging planters and hung them on a ladder that I placed between two beams on my attic. I bought a new hanging plant called Coral Breeze which is the big one on the right. I also used the Consol Solar Jar that I wrote about earlier. The result of this project is that I want these hanging planters on the ceiling in our living room now! To be continued....

A Happy Home

We made a couple of changes at home so I thought it was time for a couple of Happy Home snapshots! I found a big round wicker rug on Marktplaats (my latest addiction) which is now in our living room. I was a little scared for the rug to be ripped to pieces by our cats but so far it's still in one piece! Upstairs we made a few changes as well. We gave our "dressing room" a make-over by removing the wallpaper & painting the walls. We sold our Ikea closet & replaced it with two vintage pieces! The rug I found online at Urban Outfitters. We are very happy with our new dressing room since we spend quite some time in there, especially in the morning getting ready...

Iveau Burgers & Winebar

During our shopping day in Arnhem, me and my sister discovered this cute & cosy cafe/restaurant called Iveau. In the morning we went in for a cup of coffee and some sweets & in the evening we had a delicious meal with fresh burgers and some good wine... I really liked the look and feel of this restaurant, very homely especially with the fireplace! Nice to know is that the food is made with pure & authentic products. Definitely worth a visit!

Loft Arnhem

Last week me and my sister had some quality time. We had a spa day, did some shopping, visited a few thrift shops, enjoyed good food & of course a couple of wines! We had a good time! We spend one day in Arnhem where I was very impressed with the beautiful shop "Loft". This store is housed in a beautiful, light building where you can find a very nice collection of home accessories, clothing, jewelry, stationary & furniture! The first floor is even more impressive... Who wouldn't want to live here?! At Loft everything just fits! There are two more Loft stores in Zwolle and Apeldoorn. Definitely worth a visit when you're in one of these places!

Urban Jungle Bloggers: Plants & Tea

It's time for my interpretation of this month's Urban Jungle Bloggers theme "Plants & Coffee"! I think it's such a cute & original theme that Igor & Judith came up with and I already saw a lot of beautiful pictures from other bloggers. Since I'm not a huge coffee fan, I did the "Plants & Tea" variation. I bought this floral tea at a little organic shop in Zutphen this week. It's smells amazing! I also needed some new plants because unfortunately a few at home didn't survive... But this was the perfect chance to combine the two! I hope you had a lovely Sunday as well!

Today's Crush: The home of Suzy & Shane

Today I'm getting inspired by the vibrant home of graphic designers Suzy Tuxen and Shane Loorham. These two creatives are based in Melbourne and made their home an extension of their personalities & work. After practicing design for many years, Suzy started her own business "A Friend of Mine". Shane is the design director at "Liquorice" together with his team he builds brands through design, strategy & technology. 

Suzy & Shane invested in beautiful design pieces and combined them with retro vintage, bright colours, graphics and self-made art. I just love their unique, modern & fresh style!

Life and Lemons

In November 2014 me and my sister visited the Seinfestijn Festival in Haarlem. It was the first time I visited this cosy festival and I liked the atmosphere a lot! It was also very nice to meet and talk to a couple of bloggers & webshop owners. I also talked to the two girls, Esther & Laura, behind the very cool webshop "Life and Lemons". I immediately fell in love with the calendar by Darling Clementine, such beautiful prints! Like little colorful pieces of art! 

Later on I received a package with some lovely presents from Life and Lemons, so sweet! The "California Dreaming" and "Santa Cruz" postcards you can buy here. The Tote bag you can get here. The calendar has got a nice spot in our renewed dressing room! It's not completely ready bus we're getting there... We found the vintage closet on Marktplaats and a new rug on Urban Outfitters! We thought it was worth it to give this room a little make-over because every morning we start our day here!

Life an Lemons is offering a 10% discount on their webshop with the code "lemonxmyattic"! Go and take a look!
