Dutch By Design: Ninainvorm

Afternoon! Are we still getting over the excitement of yesterday's announcement? It's been wonderful to read your entries as they come in, finding out about your loves, your style-it all helps me create a better blog for you to read. Can't wait to get this project started and see those beautiful boxes coming in! You've got until Nov 5th to register so make sure you don't miss the boat!

Today I'm wrapping up my Dutch By Design mini-series, which was sparked by our little break to stay with a friend in Holland earlier in the summer. I can proudly say that I'm a real fan of Dutch home-ware designers and I've found some pretty gorgeous pieces over the past few weeks.

Meet Ninainvorm and her delightfully playful ceramics. Aren't they sweet? Breathing new life into vintage crockery, Nina uses collage to screenprint her colourful designs onto the ceramic and then fires them at a high temperature so they stay put for use afterwards. I love the combination of mid-century modern meets Dutch folk art and her use of the bird and branch motifs which are a regular theme within her work. 

Ideal for the kids to display in their room or use at the table.

Nina exhibited at this year's Dutch design festival, Woonbeurs with some of her latest work-these tiles are just gorgeous. They'd make an awesome feature splash-back in the kitchen or bathroom, don't you think? Really miffed I missed Woonbeurs this year but it's 100% on my list of things to do next year. Have you been before?

If you're looking for inspiration for the baby's room then you really must stop by Nina's blog. Having recently decorated the kid's room to make way for baby no.2 she's created an exciting space for them both to grow together. Personally, I think the combination of the block colour, geometric shapes and the sweet little birds gives them versatility to work anywhere in the home.
