Lumee-Restaurant-by-I-AM-Manama-Bahrain-03This is so cool!!
Lumee is a new exciting fast-casual grill restaurant, designed by I-AM in close collaboration with the Al Abraaj Restaurant Group. The aim – to celebrate and embody the exotic spirit of the Middle East and buzzing street-food atmosphere.


Taking the fine traditions and heritage of the Middle-East, a contemporary style has been added to the mix to produce an exciting experience for diners and passers-by.

Inspired by the name Lumee – meaning lemon or lime – vivid yellow and green highlights bring a sharp contemporary accent to the design and contrast with the traditional themes and textures.

Wooden tables handcrafted by local artisans sit alongside contemporary chairs, whilst the ornate, colourful bazaar-inspired tiles add a decorative element to the simple, polished monolithic copper counter and modern lighting pendants. Faithful to the Middle Eastern meze-dining tradition, the seating has been designed to allow for a cozy, comfortable and sharing experience.

In addition to the dining offer, Lumee offers an amazing array of local products and produce; pickled lemon jars, harissa paste and other Deli staples, allowing for a spot of browsing as they spill out

Home | Bungalow in France


1-woonkamer-wit-bruinLook at this happy home! It’s located just outside Biarritz, France, not far away from the coastline. And that’s what you see, you really can feel the relaxed, surfing vibe around there.

I love those ‘messy’ houses where it seems like not every item or every piece of furniture has a fixed position. Great home for children, it looks very playful and like everything is possible.

The fresh light pastel colors, in combination with the wood, the furs, the cute accessoires and carpets makes the interior feel very warm and cozy. A little bit Scandinavian as well.
Get inspired!

Last week I visited the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy. A couple of days full of design, art, inspiration and off course a little bit of holiday as well. I saw the work of Nienke Sybrandy exposed and was very inspired by it. Love the idea and colors.

Hotspot | The Kettle Black


KB-03-LandscapeAnother Melbourne favorite. I’m in love, no really. This place in Melbourne, called the Kettle Black is breathtaking. Studio You Me who designed the place, came up with a perfect balanced mix of high ceilings, white marble, mint green chairs, plain wood furniture, concrete items, subtile green tiles, a little touch of gold, fresh plants and black details. Absolutely stunning!

Skiing in France


IMG_6727bwrktLast week I spend my days in the little town of Chatel, which is near the border of Switzerland. There’s a very big skiing area, where you can ski to several villages in the neighborhood. Although we didn’t see a lot of sunshine, the experience was great!
