We LOVE Holland!

(Photograph by Valentina Vos)

I was thinking.....i really like to use this blog for a lot of different things.
Also to 'promote' different labels, designers and photographers, as you've probably already noticed.
I thought it was time to make a 'Dutchie Post' as i was flipping through the pages of some Elle Wonen (Elle Decoration) and saw some great things.
I also found some amazingly talented Dutch photographers on Flickr.
Holland really does have some talent, besides Viktor & Rolf and the well known designers from Moooi.

First of all, i discovered the amazing photography of Valentina Vos at Flickr.
I am very happy she told me she likes my blog and i can put her photographs on Loveology. Thank you, Valentina!

Hella Jongerius is one of those slightly older Dutch talents, which you just have to know.
She designs such amazing things!

The most well known design from her is probably the gorgeous vases she designed for Ikea some years ago. I still want that pink and gold one...

This gorgeous couch by Hella...
It's my dream to own it some day...

An other quite known Dutch talent is Tord Boontje (yes, this is also a weird name in Holland...)
I love his beautiful flowery patterns...very dreamy.

Below some designs by Dutch designers i like.

From Orson+Bodil, by Alexander van Slobbe.

I am glad Daryl van Wouw finally got over this sporty thing.

Ilja Visser's latest collection.

I love the designs of Spijkers en Spijkers, i think these Dutch sisters, who live in the UK, are my favourite.


Before i forget...
I received two beautiful awards!
I am very thankful for these little, special gifts i receive from time to time.
So thank you with all my heart!

This beautiful Dream Award i received from Dream Lovely.
Thank you so much, Anne. <3

The 'Premio Dardos' Award i already received some time ago, but that doesn't make it any less special to receive it once more.
Thank you dear Valentine!

I'm a fan of dutch design, too. Do you know Artecnica? (http://www.artecnicainc.com) They produce Tord's lighting and accessories as well as work by Hella and other dutch designers.

Geweldig! Je hebt hele mooie dingen uitgekozen! Van mij mag er ook meer aandacht naar Nederlands design.
