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!

You’ve probably noticed it’s been a lot more quiet here in the past few months than usually. There’s two reasons for that. First, I’m graduating in a month and most of my time has been going towards finishing my thesis. Also, I’ve been thinking a lot about where I want to go with this blog and I’m slowly figuring out what Au pays des merveilles should be all about. Being so busy for university, I haven’t had the time yet put my ideas into reality and it feels a bit awkward posting here while in my head I’m planning a total makeover for this blog. So, considering everything that is going on right now, it seems like the perfect time to take a break and focus on finally getting my hands on that diploma. I’m super excited for what’s to come! Even though right now my future plans exist only in my head, I want to do it right and therefor I’m putting the blog on hold so I can come back in full force somewhere in September. In the meantime, you can still follow me on facebook, instagram, pinterest, tumblr and twitter, as sharing my photos and things I’m inspired by is just something I can never let go. So, wish me good luck and see you in September!
A few months ago, Whiz (former Roadburg and The Galacticos) invited me into their studio to take some photos while they were recording their album with Koen Gisen (also known as An Pierlé’s White Velvet). Somehow I didn’t get around sharing these photos, but this seemed like the perfect timing to introduce them on the blog. Now that the festival season started, the band is doing a few concerts so head on over to their facebook page for more info. To give you a sense of what they sound like, the boys have composed a playlist of their musical heroes. Check back here on Monday to hear their influences!
By the way, this is exactly the kind of photography job that I love: people doing their thing while I can observe and try to capture the atmosphere. (The space being dark and quite small, it wasn’t the easiest task with the limited material I have, but in the end it didn’t turn out so bad.) I can’t wait to have more time on my hands again to photograph! Chop chop, back to work now. Continue reading
A few weeks ago, some friends from my erasmus time in Portugal came over for the weekend. It was so nice to see them again after such a long time, and to be able to show them my new city. We walked around my beautiful neighborhood Zurenborg, cycled through the city and admired Antwerp’s skyline from the roof of the MAS. Soon I’ll finally have more time on my hands and be able to spend more weekends like this.
The past month has been super busy once again, as you might have noticed on my instagram. I divided my time between working on my thesis and a few photography jobs, but luckily there was time to catch up with friends and time for a few blogging events with pretty clothes and yummy ice cream. Here’s a little recap of what I’ve been up to, featuring instagram shots and a few photos that you haven’t seen yet! Continue reading
