{ In Bruges }

Design Loving Loves Bruges
I took these photos in Bruges a week ago, it’s my go-to place whenever guests come to visit in Belgium. It’s probably one of my favourite cities – It’s picture perfect! Have you ever been to Bruges? I would suggest visiting it in Autumn, it is absolutely gorgeous when all the leaves start changing colour.

{ Skinny laMinx: Wild Flowers }

I’m always excited to see what gorgeous new designs Heather Moore creates for her label Skinny laMinx, so I was thrilled to see the lovely animation she created to promote her new collection ‘Flower Dreams’. The centerpiece of this collection is ‘Wild Flowers’ which is a large-scale two colour screenprinted design available in four colourways: Strawberry Humbug, Lemon Humbug, Strawberry Plum and Lemon Plum. For more Skinny laMinx loving you can visit the blog, shop on etsy or read a previous post here.

{ The Most Beautiful Bookstore }

Selexyz Dominicanen Bookstore

Selexyz Dominicanen Bookstore
Maastricht, the Netherlands is home to the Selexyz Dominicanen Bookstore. This breathtaking bookstore is housed in a renovated Dominican church dating back to 1294. The infusion of old and new was brilliantly executed by architectural firm Merkx + Girod who managed to highlight the grandeur of the original church and preserve it’s majestic atmosphere by positioning a colossal walk-in steel bookcase asymmetrically in the church. The upper level of the bookcase allows one to experience the church from a new perspective and have a close-up view of the historical murals. A treasure worth uncovering if you ever find yourself in the Netherlands. Plus, how awesome is that door!?

{ Beyond the Letter }

The work of London based artist Mark Powell has me captivated. With vintage envelopes as his canvas and biro (ballpoint) pen as his medium he has created a moving collection of illustrations. Not only do I love his sensitive line-work but also the remarkable play between his characters and envelopes.

The originals are available for purchase on Powell’s website and prints are available at Society6.
