Bloesem living | Home of Anne Kleinbloesem

One of our favourite topics to post about is of course interior design. Today we're sharing the home of Anne Kleinbloesem, co-founder of Baas_Kleinbloesem interior design studio in Eindhoven. Of the many spaces they have worked on, Anne's own home was one of the places they were able to transform. We love how every room has it's own character but they all blend together really well and has a great homely vibe..

Face to Face: Interview with Present and Correct

Bloesem Living | Face to Face: Interview with Present and Correct

If you are a stationery lover (like us!), you will seriously fall in love Present and Correct, an independent stationery store, home to carefully curated supplies that evoke a certain classic vibe. In the recent issue of the Bloesem Gazette, we spoke with its founder, Neal Whittington, about the emotions he hopes to bring to customers through his products.

If you could choose a type of stationery to describe yourself, which would you choose and why?

Definitely some kind of paperclip, because it attaches itself to ideas and clings on.

How do you constantly keep yourselves inspired to create such fun stationery?

We are big fans of the internet! There is so much good stuff online, particularly old design archives, full of things to inspire. Also other people making stationery inspires in that it spurs you on to do your own thing. Travelling to markets and collecting as we go is another great source of inspiration. We have a drawer full of old ephemera, which we always look through for ideas.

Dessert always does the trick, whether it’s to complement a hearty conversation or alleviate an awkward silence. What’s better than a zesty lemon meringue tart after a rich meal. After all, there’s always room for dessert don’t you agree? Whip up this all-time favourite to serve during friendly catch- ups!

First or Second

Bloesem Living | Face to Face: Interview with April and May

Being avid fans of April and May blog, we were delighted to speak with the authors this interior design blog, Jantine Vaartjes and Vivian Hoebe, on their newest endeavour. Just last year, they opened a physical concept store, First or Second, in The Netherlands featuring beautiful furniture and even a cafe. It was clearly visible that the concept of the store was closely related to their online blog and greatly fitted the April and May feeling. We jumped in and got some insights into their inspirations behind the stunning store in our latest issue of the Bloesem Gazette

Why a store? and why now?

In the beginning of 2014 we were asked if we were interested in working on a new store concept for an existing store in the city, Alkmaar. The owner of the store wanted a new and different concept and a completely different atmosphere. We decided to create a new concept for the store and added a new collection of brands and products to the existing collection. Not only did the interior change, but also the name and branding changed into First or Second (design choices). The project was a challenge because of the size of the store with approximately 2000 square meters and the time issue where we had to finish the concept, restyling and new collection within 4 months. But we managed and the result is a completely new store that breathes a totally different atmosphere and experience.

What is your inspiration behind 1 or 2 Store? How does the blog translate into the store?

We wanted to create more than just a store, somewhere you can experience products and brands in a different way. A place where first experiences lead to second moments. A combination of design, vintage design and products (first or second). We divided the store into different areas with a 1or2 cafe, 1or2 villa, 1or2 art and 1or2 kids spread over almost 3 levels. With the 1or2 villa you can experience products in a real villa and be inspired to use them in your own home. We have a kitchen in the villa that is used for cooking sessions and workshops. Just like with our blog, we wanted people to get inspired in a different way compared to how stores usually present their collections.

Having taught many workshops in Indonesia, Veronica is the perfect person to learn this art from.

Sometimes customers turn into collaborators.. and it's magic! For the latest issue of the Bloesem Gazette, we had this idea of an illustration for the back and fortunately enough our customers are a talented bunch! Jien from Witxfolly whipped up this sweet illustration and we can't be more gratefully. It was the perfect way to wrap up The Conversation Issue of the gazette. We hope you all enjoyed it. If this is the first you're hearing of it, grab your e-copy of the Bloesem Gazette now. Or if you are in Singapore, you can drop by the Bloesem store to get yourself a printed copy.

4 days of our #Instafood class went by just like that! We can't believe it. So we're thankful we had Nicole, aka Sorella Muse, there to capture all the foodie magic that was going on. The Bloesem Team, represented by Zara S., together with popular instagrammer, Trisha Toh from Malaysia, taught the students how to make full use of their smart phone camera and style food to create those mouth-watering shots you see on instagram. 

Bloesem will be taking our #Instafood class to Amsterdam this March! So make sure to grab your spots early. 

In the meantime, here's a quick look back at how the Food styling and mobile photography classes went. If you love the photography like we do, make sure to follow Nicole on her instagram as well. She's a peach! (this works perfectly when talking about a food styling class don't you think?)

Face to Face: Introducing Mossery

Bloesem Living | Face to Face: Introducing Mossery

We always love stocking products from new labels in our Bloesem Shop and even more supporting young independent brands. When we caught eyes on these beautifully printed notebooks from Malaysian label, Mossery, we thought no further and had to get our hands on them. With their notebooks exclusively sold in Singapore in the Bloesem Shop, we get to know more about the trio behind this fun stationery label in our latest issue of the Bloesem Gazette

Tell us 3 little known facts about Mossery.

1. Our old logo is a chameleon and our latest logo is based on the chinese character - forest 森 which represents our responsibility to make the world a better place. 

2. The tallest member is 193cm tall and the shortest member is 153cm. Venti, Grande and Tall.

3. We spent hours choosing hundreds of samples to get the paper right – so that it feels good to even flip it, smells good and works great with any writing instrument.

Tell us more about the team behind Mossery’s fun stationery.

We are a team of three graphic designers – a designer, a marketer and a printer with a passion to design and make things.

What is the Mossery style and where do you gain inspiration from?

We don’t know what is our style yet as we are still learning and absorbing different inspiration from everywhere. We try to get inspiration from other design disciplines like fine arts or architecture. Our latest batch is mainly inspired by the fashion world.

Lying on silk

Gingerlily

 { 1. Silk bedding ; 2. Eva White bed linen ; 3. Silk throw ; 4. Disk cushion ; 5. Sleep cushion }

I don't know what you look forward to when you get home after a long day at work but for me having a comfy bed to sleep in is always a great way to kick back. The silk bedding from Gingerlily is truly pampering and luxurious. Their all season weight duvet is great no matter the weather you are in at the moment - for us it's not too hot at night in Singapore, thankfully. Plus, ladies, sleeping on silk bedding is great for your hair! There's no friction so it means smoother looking hair... Always a plus...
