HEMA: a new Discovery

I recently discovered the dutch brand Hema in one of London airport departure shop:

hema wishlist

  1. Candleholder  / 2.Storage Boxes  / 3. Metal Basket / 4. Storage Felt Box / 5. Cappuccino Mug  / 6. Paper Clips  7. Fleece Throw 8. A5 Notebook 
Apparently founded in  1926 as a department store for “ordinary” people, I’m surprised that I never heard about it but I’ve been attracted by the variety of things, the lovely color palette of the shop and the really convenient prices…

The above is my wishlist! As autumn is here I’m in love with the grey&yellow combination.

Have a look on their website for the full catalog (it changes really quickly, so keep an eye on it) …the stationary section is my favorite 🙂

Have you ever heard of this brand before?

The Perfect Bookcase

Happy Sunday everybody! Just a quick post to show you our new house addiction:

the perfect bookcase

I grew up in a house where books have always been an important element, we had an entire room dedicated to it, we called ‘The Library‘ (that was my dad’s kingdom :-)).
I always love to see books displayed in someone’s house, I think they really give the personality of who is living there.
