A long long time ago, I promised a room tour… and here it is!  Not on this blog, but over at the ikea family live magazine! You can find it in dutch here and in French here.  No English, but it’s mostly pictures anyway.  These pictures were taken in the summer, so obviously things have already changed a lot here (for example, I have an actual bed now!), but I’m still pretty happy with the result of this article.  And there’s more good news: if everything goes according to plan, I should be able to start on the new Au Pays Des Merveilles next week and hopefully I’ll be back soon with more pretty things, more interior inspiration and more travel tips!

In the meantime, stay up to date through facebook, instagram and twitter, and you’ll be the first to know when Au Pays Des Merveilles is back!

PRETTY THINGS: etsy finds

etsy finds via au pays des merveilles

It’s hard to imagine that some of you have never bought anything on etsy, but if that’s the case: this is your chance.  If you register on etsy now via this link, you’ll get € 5 discount on your first purchase, not bad right?  Etsy offers an amazing amount of pretty things and it’s easy to get lost when you’re looking for something specific, so I’ve selected a few of my recent favorites that I think you might like as well.  Continue reading


scotch & soda showroom at goldwood interiors via au pays des merveilles

As I mentioned before, the Scotch & Soda showroom was yet again located in the most beautiful venue.  This time, the honor was for Goldwood, an interior shop that sells the most beautiful vintage furniture and doubles as an art gallery.  I could go on and on about the gorgeous space (those brick walls, the light and that glass shelving system next to the windows!) and the stunning furniture (I’d sign for one of those wooden shelves in a second), but I’ll let the photos do the talking.

diy furniture via au pays des merveilles

As I mentioned in this week’s pretty things post, me and my friends participated in the workshop ‘Libre objet’ in Brussels organized by Mathieu Gabiot.  The first day was spent discussing copyright and open source design (a form of co-creation, where design information is shared publically and the final product is designed and built by the users) , followed by thinking about Mathieu’s design ‘Bouctje’ (a small book rack, pictured above) and how we could transform it into our own design.  The second day was spent on constructing our own version of the Bouctje, resulting in everything from a version with an added side table, a rocking chair our a double version.  Soon, you will be able to download drawings and instructions on how to construct our designs.  Of course I will let you know when these come online, but for now you can click below and try to figure it out from this extensive photo report!
