Summer Design

January 26, 2014 • Home Decor

i really love supporting local companies – especially if they’re as awesome as belgian design label serax. their headquarters are based super close to where my parents live, and it is such a cool building – i like to call it my happy place, as it is filled to the brim with cool interior design. i was so honored to work with them on my wedding (you can see the table setting i designed with their products right here), and it only made me fall in love with serax even more. and it seems like that’s not about to change this year – as their 2014 collection rocks. they worked with belgian studio simple, who designed a series of sleek furniture in oak and white lacquered steel that i would just like to beam up to geneva in its entirety.

then at the same time, i could never turn my back on ikea. it’s true that buying your furniture here is not the shortest road to the most indivual home ever, but i like to think of the company as a provider of perfect, sleek basics that you can add your twist to. thanks to ikea-hacking companies like superfront, pretty pegs and bemz, that’s easier than ever. however, i don’t actually want to change a lot about some of the new items for summer. the limited edition collection bråkig is looking rad (and will be available from february 1, i’ve been told), and how cool are those pale pink wall shelves? i’m still feeling the pink/copper trend – #sorrynotsorry.

    En op die manier wil ik dus tot in de eeuwigheid ons huis herinrichten. ;)

    Ik ben ook fan van Serax, maar wil evengoed Ikea niet de rug toe keren. :) Bij ons is het zo’n beetje een combinatie, wat Ikea en daarnaast vooral het één en ander via grootouders (zoals een antieke kast). Meubelen met een verhaal in combinatie met Ikea, daar hou ik wel van en Serax komt er dan bij als deco.

    @melissa they sure do.

    @patricia i don’t even care it’s so over-the-top trendy.

    @kate glad these could inspire you, and thanks for pinning!

    @kelly i know the feeling – maar serax wordt wel steeds beter en beter en beter, het wordt moeilijk om onze plek niet in de serax showroom om te toveren :)
