Time for something new

Fresh year fresh start. This year I decided to try to simplify my (work) life. That’s why I decided to focus on the basics. What does this mean for the blog? Well from now on I’ll start blogging in my mother language Dutch. I’m very sorry for all you English reading fans out there, off course you can always use Google translate to still follow the blog.

Baby Bunny Ears: Quick & dirty Easter DIY

Easter DIY – Baby bunny ears – free printable

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that it’s Easter this Sunday, you’re probably much more prepared then me (‘Easter, this weekend? are you sure?’). My babygirl spending her very first Easter without a bit of handmade love? No way! So I recycled last years Easter egg tutorial and made the bunny ears baby sized! Let me share this quick and easy DIY tutorial with you:

1. Download the free printable here. Print on 180g (or heavier) photo paper.

2. Cut out the ears with scissors or a cutter knife & ruler (I used both, the cutter for the straight parts and the scissors for the ears)

3. Glue the 2 pieces together, make sure to test the size on your baby’s head first!

4. Put on baby, hope she/he doesn’t destroy it instantly.

I told you that it was a quick and dirty DIY! Ideal for new mommy’s! But if you want some more, check out my Easter Egg tutorial

Wonderful designed window film – Siluett Frost

Let me start off to say that I’m a great fan of window film, I think almost all our windows received this treatment. They let through the light better than curtains and you can apply them either halfway or on the entire window.

Before I always bought my film on the cheap, either online or in our local hardware store.

But for Merel’s bedroom I went on an online search for some qualitative and, very importantly, great designed window film. Nothing but the best for my little girl! That’s how I came across Swedish Design Studio SiluettFrost.

I’m a big fan of the Graphite window film, the detail is just stunning.

But to be honest this design is a bit more mom’s cup of tea… So should I go with the very cute Daydreaming window film which of course is ideal for kids?

Or maybe Lov which features birds since my daughter’s name is Dutch for blackbird?

So which one would you chose? Or do you now some great alternatives to make me doubt even more? I would love to know!

My husband still has to wait a bit longer to celebrate his first fathers day but to all daddies (especially my own): happy fathers day!

I thought I scavenge some dream interiors for all you men out there. Bold dark colors, artistic cheeky prints en lots of leather, isn’t this what you all secretly dream off? Or is that just a cliche? To all my male readers, be free to let me know!

I heart… Hay copper hangers

Last weekend I went to visit the new Hay flagship store in Antwerp. I was secretly hoping to indulge in one of my design crushes.

Make it Copenhagen

I’m a bit of a metallic addict and not that long ago, after a long withstanding love with gold, I discovered copper. I already invested in a lamp shade but wanted to add Hay’s copper hanger set to my collection. Well turns out that the objects of my desire aren’t made any more… And although the twisted hangers that took their place also have a copper version, I preferred the simple wire ones… So in the end out I ended up not buying anything… I know, first world problems…


Bijzonder Mooi
