Project R | The Play Room

February 14th, 2018

We’re back today to share another space in the Project R home we recently wrapped up – did you see the living room? We are so thrilled to see this home featured in a huge 16 page spread in the latest issue of vtwonen magazine that we are taking you on a room-by-room tour all week. Today we are taking you through the play room! With two young children our client wanted to create an inviting space where they could play, create, relax and explore. Here’s what we came up with!

A bit of a recap on this project: When our client enlisted us to help her with her home at the end of 2016, the goal was to add style, personality, function and a overall sense of cohesion to her newly renovated family home. Characteristic, layered and collected with a muted but joyful palette and an overarching family atmosphere was the brief. Let’s jump right in!

Project R | The Living Room

February 12th, 2018

It’s always exciting to reach the end of a project but to see it published in print makes it that much more rewarding. When our client enlisted us to help her with her home at the end of 2016, the main agenda was to apply a fresh layer of style, personality, function and a overall sense of cohesion to her newly renovated abode which she shares with her husband and two children. The results are a characteristic and layered residence that blends modest sophistication with a muted but joyful palette, with an overarching family atmosphere. Today we are thrilled to see this home featured in a huge 16 page spread in the Dutch title vtwonen magazine and thought it would be fun for those of you who read this blog but don’t have access to vtwonen, to walk you through each space over the coming week. We’ll be sharing the living area, kitchen, play room, kids bedroom and guest bedroom plus a ton of resources so you can shop the tour yourselves. Let’s start today with the living room!

Renovator and project manager by profession, our client had already tackled the structural aspects of her spacious home, with the goal of creating a sense of comfort in what was otherwise a large and uninviting living space on the ground floor. When we stepped in, the starting point was clear with various interesting areas and a host of furniture to work with. While we like to work from the base upwards, the leg work had already been put, our client having already reworked the layout to maximise the functionality of each area. In the living room, what was initially a very large open space had been divided into various rooms and created an interesting yet functional home for her family of four. All  that was missing the finishing touch and a sense of cohesiveness throughout, and that’s where we come in!

Simple & Smart: Lighting by Vertigo Bird

January 29th, 2018

Late last year we had the pleasure of teaming up with Design Studio Nu once more to shoot a line of contemporary lighting from the Slovenian label Vertigo Bird for their website and social platforms. As always, the girls at Nu took the lead in terms of concept and styling, choosing their new warehouse studio space as the location for the shoot with routed concrete walls and an industrial quality that was hard not to love. It was a fun project that we are excited to share with you today!

Vertigo Bird is a young lighting design house based out of Ljubljana, Slovenia, offering quality, timeless and energy efficient lighting. It was founded by Silvo Kacar of Arcadia Lightware – one of Slovenia’s most successful lighting companies. Silvo had seen the work that we had done previously (here and here) for the furniture label Rex Kralj and wanted to get their ‘simple and smart’ line of lights behind our lens too, starting with their newest products, the KAT flush mount ceiling lamp, the DEMIJOHN pendant with it’s warm wood edging, the cute and practical CONCIERGE wall mounted night light, and the FUNNEL pendant.

Studio Tour: Ask og Eng

December 15th, 2017

One of the things we love most about social media are the connections we have been able to make, the friendships that have been forged, the creative collaborations that have been made a possibility and the inspiration that we are fortunate to have access to on a daily basis. Instagram has been such an integral medium for us to be able to share our own projects and inspire others along the way, but to be inspired ourselves by incredible creative talent all over the globe. One such talent is the Norwegian duo Kine Ask Stenersen and Kristoffer Eng behind Ask og Eng. We connected over Instagram, immediately taken by their beautiful kitchens and overall design ethos, and before we knew it we were headed to Norway to capture their home and studio space on camera. Today, we are thrilled to bring you a full tour of their Drammen studio and showroom, where they design, present and create their bamboo kitchens and furniture.

Husband-and-wife team Kine and Kristoffer founded Ask og Eng in 2016, having designed and built their own sustainable kitchens and furniture over a number of years. Kine’s background in environmental geography and climate change combines with Kristoffer’s background in architecture, resulting in a beautiful brand in which clever design, functionality and sustainability play a key role. Jump into the tour to see where they work and just how beautiful their creations are >> Get the full scoop

Project Miami | The Reveal

December 4th, 2017

This post has been a long time coming, guys! There have been hints dropped on Instagram about a project we have recently rounded off in Miami, Florida. It’s been a year and a half in the making and it brings me so much joy to be able to share with you the results that we captured while on location a few weeks ago for the final install. Today we’ll walk you through the process, including the before shots we know you love so much, some of our designs and the finished results! Let’s jump straight in. 

I (Holly) took this project on a year and a half ago – before my merge with Hedda though she was a huge support throughout the process because an international interior design project is no easy feat, I can tell you! The project was a full tear-out, renovation and redesign of a two bed, three bath penthouse apartment. And we did it all from the other side of the world. With many logistical challenges along the way, you can only imagine how satisfying it is to finally be able to share the completed spaces with you today. Get the full scoop
