WHY GEZELLIG?

The Dutch have a special word to describe “cosiness”, “comfort”, but it’s also something that goes a little beyond that. “Gezellig”. Pronounced correctly, it kinda sounds like you’re clearing your throat, but this blog explores its meaning by documenting experiences that make life richer and deeper; through food, family, and the making of a home.

Pattern me pretty

by amanda on November 15, 2016

So, I’m a HUGE sucker for surface pattern design. And I’m coming across more and more absolutely stunning ones lately so I thought it high time to share some with you. Some of these, I realize, might induce headaches in some people but to me, you can always, always have more colour. Always.

Let’s start with the prettiest – florals:

But really, geometric patterns are basically my jam:

I love unexpected colour palettes – perhaps that’s why graffiti appeals so much to me.
