Soft pink cushions on a light grey bench

Because of some preparations ( and the easter weekend) I decided to launch the new webshop some days later than I've announced before. In the meantime I'll keep sharing the photo's from this new Binti Home Collection with you. Here you can see the soft pink and white combination in the cushions and plaid. A beautiful soft colourpalette from 100% linen, I think it's a good match with light grey. Happy easter!

Sophisticated interior with darkblue and grey

A basic interior with a lot of whites and wood will have sophisticated atmosphere when you add some black. Black will give the room an elegant and chic look. People think black gives a big contrast and will be more suitable for an interior with industrial elements. But when you make the combination with dark blue and grey the black will be more softer and will connect all the colours together in the room. In this living room you can see my cushions in dark blue and grey made of 100% linen. This sunday my webshop Binti Home Shop will go live, countdown of 5 nights.

Amazing kitchen in this family home for Kid and Coe

A little time ago I published some photo's here on my blog about the first home I photographed in Amsterdam for travel website Kid and Coe. This is another lovely family home in Amsterdam with an amazing open kitchen and lovely rooms for the kids, what about that nice tipi! You can book your family vacation in this home here. Next week I will photograph a new home in Amsterdam and Bussum for Kid & Coe, it's such a nice collaboration!

Sneak preview : Binti Home Collection

And here it is : A first sneak preview of a project I've been working on for a long time. I've annouched before that I was busy with a new webshop, Binti Home Shop. But now I can proudly say that I've created my own Binti Home Collection with cushions, plaids and many more to come. I'm so excited about this because I'm having this idea for a really long time and since three months I'm collaborating with an atelier who makes this collection for me. Behind the scenes it's really hard work to make everything ready for this next weekend.. because I hope to go online with Binti Home Shop next week. But first, I will show the Binti home Collection this weekend at Fort Festijn in Seinwezen, Haarlem, will you be there too? It's really excited for me to be there this sunday and show my new collection to the people who will come... I'm so curious what you think! Wish me goodluck the next days, preparing all the things for this collection and new online shop. In this Binti Home Shop there will be a combination of my own textile collection and products I love from different brands, styled and photographed in all kind of settings. It's all about inspiration, colour and materials!

Check out this blog or follow my Facebook and Instagram to be the first to know when Binti Home Shop is online! :)

Histor Perfect Finish

Last week I wrote a blogpost about the live videochat I had with Jelena for the new Histor campaign Histor Verf&Advies which is running at the moment. Since 1 april it's possible to get a free live colouradvice from one of the stylists of Histor. All you have to do is make an appointment on their website. You can ask all your questions about your painting project and when you have a videochat you can show the wall or furniture you'd like to paint. After the chat you will receive an e-mail with the painting instructions and a voucher with €5,- discount on all the paintings from Histor. I just received the Histor Perfect Finish in different colours what I will use for my cupboard project. I just love the colourscheme, as I can say yellow is one of my favourite colours! Like I told you in the previous blogpost I will work with gradient on the shelves at my cupboard and when I see these colours I can't wait to start painting! Do you also have some nice paintingprojects in progress?

Behind the scenes of productstyling and interiorphotography

Behind the scenes for Binti Home Shop
Goodmorning! Here's a little update from my Instagram pictures of last week. It was a great workweek what hasn't been finished yet. I was on the road for two days, working on a really nice assignment for Postercandy. I was asked to do the styling and photography for 8 different settings on two locations, in Amsterdam and Oss. So I was driving over the dutch highways with a car full of nice stylingproducts and the music from Pharell out of my speakers. Today I will select the photo's, do some editing and then sending them to Postercandy for their new website what will be online soon. Beside this great assignment I also planned some photoshoots for Binti Home Shop. It's really happy everything will be finished soon and I love the colourschemes I'm working with. I can say that it's excited to launch this website soon, really curious what you'll think! Yesterday I received the Flair of this week with the photo's I've made at the colourful home of blogger Nancy ( Thank you for the sweet words in your latest blogpost Nancy!

So what is your plan for today and this weekend? First I will drink a coffee with my father who will go back to Egypt again :(. After I will do another photography for Binti Home Shop at a location in Leiden and tomorrow as well in Den Haag. And after a week full of driving, styling, photography and working I will spend a good saturdaynight and sunday with friends. Happy Friday!
