this morning’s mini sneak peek is into the quirky world of dutch product and jewelry designer zelda beauchampet. her unique place is actually an anti-squad house. the nature of these homes is that they are temporary (until they are torn down to be replaced by new ones), but they’ve kept zelda moving around to new places every so often for the past 8 years. she loves this sweet little place with its big garden, but won’t be sad to leave the terrible neighborhood it’s in come march. you have to admit, a place like this is bound to keep living interesting. click here for the full-sized images, and here for more great sneak peeks. [thanks, zelda!] –anne
The table and the chairs in the room is the place where I sit down with friends.I have an open kitchen where i love to cook and talk to my homies who are sitting around the table. The table is an heritage of my grand parents. It’s one of Knoll International’s fine designs – it’s Eero Saarinen and this table was number 881 of production. On the wall is a work of copy-artist Lieve Prins. She made this copymachine work when i was little. It’s me as angel of the Rijksmuseum (amsterdam).
The picture with the bike, is part of my living room. It is standing there because there is no other place in my house to park the bike. And because i love my bike off course! This bike is totally self-made. it’s already different now..got new parts on my bike..
This is my most favorite place in the house. I love my bed.. always clean and soft..haha especially one of my graduation projects (Identity matters): the bear sitting on top, who is always watching me, and taking care of my bad dreams. The little closet hanging on the wall is a design of Kiki van Eijk, she is a good friend of mine and we once swapped it for something i made. It’s hard to see but the plaid on my bed is also one of my designs. Me and 2 other girls made a temporary hotel room called the Secrets of the Pony Club. And the plaid i made was square stitched with pin up girls in the centerpiece.
