Open any great interior design magazine, and you'll find jewelry in it. Both editorial and advertisements. Why? Simply because they are related to that all-inclusive idea called Style.
Pillows are by Marie Martin and the vintage brooch of a bird is by Tiffany. The earrings are by the Dutch jewelry designer Couleurs de Geraldine
So why not think about interior design and create a style on a jewelry blog? :-) Personally, I love to make that connection, and I think most of you consciously or unconsciously do. I know perfectly well that jewelry isn't on your mind each day. Neither are you visiting your local jewelry weekly to purchase something new. Some have a clear idea about their Style and taste in jewelry, but most of us, aren't so aware of it. And we opt to save ideas such as classic style jewelry or something you saw on your friend recently.
The gorgeous rond velvet couch is by Marie Martin, the ring is by the Italian company Zydo and the lovely earrings are by Syna
But if you take a look at what you like and have or look at your vision boards on Pinterest ;-), it ought to give you some idea of what jewelry you might like too.
We'll try to inspire you this year with various blogs that connect different styles and different products that might connect the dots for your personal inspiration.
As most of our blogs are not sponsored, we think you should see it as inspiration. Perhaps show it on your phone while trying to explain your jeweler or friends what you love or seek for. Pin it on your style board on Pinterest or use it merely as entertaining information. It's all good!
Imaginative interior design for those who love to make a statement, all by Moooi. The goldfish bracelet is by Manya & Roumen
Jewelry is lovely as it often symbolizes moments in life you treasure. Memories, people, special moments, we love to capture it is something so personal and lasting as jewelry. However, jewelry is also a statement. It can be a great way to show your Style!
In this blog, we used Dutch designers only. We searched for particular styles, and as the Netherlands is a fascinating place these days for fashion and interior designers, we wanted to share that with you. Take Marie Martin, a collaboration between two interior designers -Marielle de Graaf-Blok and Martin de Boer- who love to restore, refurbish, and lavishly decorated homes. Or Marcel Wanders, the genius designer who creates "oh and ah moments" with his humor and his outspoken pieces.
If you love the horse theme of the Moooi horse light, you'll probably love these rings by the Spanish Magerit too. Or the uber stylish silver ring by Hermès
We featured Menno Kroon, who owns one of the most inspiring flower stores in Amsterdam and Moooi, the company that gave us the (real-size)horse lamp and pig table and so much more.
We connected these designs with jewelry from Bulgari to Anabela Chan and from Lydia Courteille, Solange, and Boucheron to Magerit and Manya & Roumen.
Let us know what you loved and think, and if you have a great idea, don't be shy! We love to hear all about it!
