Phone home

We have a new phone for our home. After having an oldfashioned homephone with a cord and 2 babies...not practical. I need to keep an eye on them all times.
I decided to get this pretty e-pure swiss phone, and I love it.

Wedding preparations

Yes yes, we are going to get married, finally after being together for 10 years and having 2 kids, we finally tie the knot. So my dear close friends who read this blog, you'll be getting a save the date card to your address soon. It will be next year so there is margin to arrange the things we need.
I always dreamed of having our wedding in Ibiza, but we chose Amsterdam to be our wedding venue, that's of course my birthplace and to me it seems the best option.
I will keep you updated with the progress.
I already bought this beautiful LOVE cake topper. I purchased it on a lovely Etsy shop called Betterofwed Its elegant, sweet, simple but chic.


I also purchased these bride and groom signs in gold.


 I made a wedding planner, bought a handy and pretty pdf file on Etsy in the shop called Laura Drayton 75 page of keeping track of appointments, expenses and to do lists.
It helps you step by step to organize and plan everything in to perfection.

So thrilled.
xoxo

My latest buys - Gold imperial glasses


I just received these gold beauties a few days ago. The above picture I took with my phone, is where I have my plates, glasses, vases and bowls. The gold glasses are vintage Sohi imperial Culver glasses that I purchased on Etsy and Ebay. Just amazing! Can´t understand why nobody makes these kind of glasses any more, they are so gorgeous. I found a lovely article about them here on the blog Tatter and Frey She has a lovely Etsy shop with vintage items to decorate your house here.
The other glasses more to the right are Vintage Culver glasses also but with a geometric pattern.

This collection is drop dead gorgeous. I am addicted now to start collecting more myself.
But I am already happy withe the ones I have and they look so good on my shelf!




Baby news update

Dear all, thank you for the patience! Today the 29th is Oliver´s 6 months milestone.
He is such a happy baby. Above picture big brother Matteo is giving a kiss.
So how is it to have to little ones you might ask? Ufff their a handfull, that´s why my lack of writing posts on my beloved blog. In the beginning there was some jalousy but now that Matteo is more involved in helping with baby Oliver he doesn´t show it that much. Matteo even advises me when the baby is crying I must check if Oliver has his pacifier...
Matteo starts talking better and better. Today when we were making a stroll in the city he was sitting on his daddy´s shoulders and he saw a short haired dog walking in front of them. Matteo said: daddy daddy, I can see the dogs butt, do you see it too?
I was just out of the blue, and I just had to laugh.

Note:
Dear Dad, happy birthday tomorrow the 30th of June! Love you
kisses from the 4 of us
xoxo

office chairs

I am in need of new office chairs and I have been in love with white office chairs for a while. I have found one in particular that I love, but also comes with a expensive pricetag. As I need 4 chairs so that will be a no go.
I do came a cross a knock off version with a better price tag here at decosillas

OR

another option will be a reproduction of the Eames chair, I love the original Eames chair, but for the office I need wheels. The idea to sit on a hard chair without any cushion, makes me rethink that. While brouwsing on the internet I found a company who produces wool felt cushions for these type of chairs

.
Really like them in pink or black.

It´s a fifty-fifty situation. Wich option do you like most?

Emil Stejnar Starburst Chandelier


I am officialy an owner of this beautiful chandelier. I picked it up after doing some research on the internet. The seller, Edwin, had this one for sale as he already has a few of them installed in his house. I have been in LOVE with this vintage chandelier since years. Above picture is the clothes designer Betsey Johnson.
I am imagining various option where it could be. Maybe above a bar extension of a coocking island, or above our bed or dining tabe. Endless possibilities.
This lamp was designed by Emil Stejnar in 1950.
Many of these chandeliers are for sale on First Dibs


 This image comes from my most favorite blog Made By Girl, Jen the author visited the Kate Spade Boutique in NYC and they hace these chandeliers in their window display.

I wanted to thank Edwin for selling this chandelier to me, he was very patient as I could pick it up 2 weeks later. Edwin is a graphic designer and his wife Angelique is interior decorator. I have to say, it was one of the best decorated houses I have ever seen in my life! If you need a graphic designer or interior decorator, don't hesitate to contact them.
