I love inspiring spaces with lots of art, books, magazines & memories. In my imagination my house would look like this ……
But in real life I have “inspiration” scattered all over the floor, magazine stacks in every room of the house and shoes next to every sitting area. Since I am moving in 2 weeks, I am currently organising/ decluttering and just keeping the things I really love. Ofcourse I also need new items that match the empty spaces in our new house so the hunt for affordable yet stylish things has begun!
A list of my favourite items (so far):
– I LOVE photographers William Klein & Richard Avedon. Therefore I bought a magazine (cannot afford the real ones) when I visited the FOAM exhibition last year and display it around the house.
– BABETH coffee table book, this was a recommendation of a bookstore in Amsterdam and it is stunning. Forget the all the others, this one is amazing!
– Fashion inspiration: Alexa Chung’s IT and How to be Parisian wherever you are. Love their style, love the books. Read when feeling bloated on a rainy day for instant inspiration.
– Monocle: simply the best magazine around full of a mixture of business, culture, innovative concepts and hotspots. I think it aims mostly at men (seeing there is always some fashionable man on the cover) but whatevs, I love it.
