3D Paris apartment

I saw these beautiful images on Emmas Designblog and I was very impressed by them! To me they look like real photos but they aren’t! These are 3D generated images! The project is called Baron Haussmann because the series is inspired by the beautiful Parisian interiors of the Haussmann era. These images (or do I say little pieces of art?) are created by bbb3viz. Please go and have a look at the website because there you can see the most incredible 3D generated images. Seeing all this I am wondering where we are heading with all the modern technique and possibilities. Will there still be real interior photoshoots in 10 years from now? I don’t know, but fact is that we move forward soon in the world nowadays. Well have a great week you all, here the sun is (finally) shining! Hope it is shining too wherever you all may be.

I am happy to say that we finally have this popular (and hard to get) Barbapapalamp back in stock! Months we have waited for the new Barbapapalamps to arrive and it is nice to see them all lined up again in our storage :-).

Black Bathroom

Every day I try to make time to take a long & relaxing bath. I have to admit that half of the time I don’t find the time but when I do I enjoy every second of it. I believe it’s healthy to have a moment for yourself and give your body & mind some rest. Sometimes when I take a bath I pull out the good stuff like candles, music, etcetera. Here are some items that help you enjoy your bath and make your bathroom look prettier. 1 This is Tara, a basin mixer from Dornbracht. Great that it is also in matt black now! 2 Pedal bin from Vipp. 3 A lovely scent candle from Diptyque. 4 Black Soap from Caswell Massey. 5 Black towels from Vipp. 6 Jaime Hayon for Bisazza Bagno.

I realised that I did't show you the final pictures of my photoshoot yet. As I told you earlier we have a beautiful new color in our interior sticker collection. The new color is a lovely soft and matt peach. I believe it's a super hip color and hope we are going to sell it like crazy :-). Here are the photos that I made for the press kit, hope to see them published all over the place.

Hotel Modez for the fashion addict

On September 15, 2012, Mode Design Hotel Modez opened it's door in Arnhem's Fashion Quarter, Klarendal (in The Netherlands). Studio Piet Paris came up with a unique hotel concept, designed the hotel logo and is responsible for the art direction. Piet Paris is one of my former teachers at The Design Academy. He was one of the sweetest teachers I have ever had! What a honest and lovely man he is. So you can understand why I want to show you this remarkable hotel. Piet invited 30 fashion designers to decorate the rooms from this hotel. They all came up with surprising concepts that characterize their styles. Most of the designers studied at the Institute of Arts in Arnhem and/or have an atelier in the city. The name Modez is a combination of the words Mode, Design and ArtEZ, formerly the Institute of Arts. The Hotel is located in the Fashion Quarter in the district Klarendal. The city centre of Arnhem is on a 10 minute walking distance. In the Fashion Quarter you will find products with a story. Many shops and ateliers of designers and upcoming talents are spread over more than a kilometer. So for the absolute fashion addicts amongst us I believe this is an unique hotel.
