Inspired by street art #3

While walking home I pass by this beautiful piece of street art almost every day. A praying woman with an alter ego… a dark image but a bit playful due to the chicken on top. The colors urban, bohemian, natural and african. I selected some color matching interior decoration pieces from great brands like Piet Hein Eek, HK Living and SNURK. The street art is by Brazilian artist Dante Horoiwa. For the very first time I found a matching fashion brand which I added to the small selection. Get inspired by street art from Rotterdam and add some natural tones to your living and closet!

Cryptic Duality is the name of this beautiful piece of street art, which reflects the buildings goal: provide special education for children often with an autistic spectrum. The mural was part of a Brazilian festival in Rotterdam, 2009. If you wanna visit the mural by Horoiwa, it’s 20 meters by 14 meters so you can’t miss it if you walk between the David Lloyd gym and the ‘Hofplein’ fountain. Three of the selected decoration accessories are by Dutch brands which I personally admire. Their focus on structure and material use are knowable signatures. Combining materials with an ‘earthy’ tone is both luxury as modern – a combination very popular in homes right now!

Enjoy this third edition of “inspired by street art”!

Holiday cabin redecoration

Last weekend I spent in a holiday log cabin in Drenthe, a region in The Netherlands. I got me a great deal so the decision was both easy and spontaneous! The outside of the cabin was awesome, almost like I’ve imagined (different color). But the inside was so disappointing! Poor, ‘cold’ and desolate. A log cabin for six persons, with an old leathered ‘modern’ couch, three not matching garden chairs and a not matching coffee table. Only the curtains were charming. So in a case like that, my mind takes over control. I’ve redecorated the cabin almost a thousand times, switching furniture and picking new ones. So I decided to create two different mood boards for a cabin redecoration, which I share in this post. Two different tones, one warm, one more clean but ‘airy’ to create the idea that the living is bigger. Enjoy!

There are a couple things to consider while redecoration a specific holiday cabin. First of all, it’s a cabin in the wood and surrounded by dirt which means no rug on the floor or furniture with textile to the floor. And second, the interior can not be to expensive because of the use by different visitors and because of the times the interior needs to be duplicated to all log cabins on the park. So to maintain a low budget I used furniture and decoration of IKEA and H&M Home. For the wall decoration I found some prints on Etsy, label them with the designers also honors the designer and gives the opportunity to collect the art for yourself šŸ™‚

To give you an impression of the actual state of the living I took a photo with my phone.
