It “felt” right

It's been a week since I returned from the land of Van Gogh and it's been very hard to bounce back from the Amsterdam state of mind. I came back very inspired by its simple and yet rich sense of design. Browsing the web looking for Dutch artists and designers to showcase in my blog, I came across this unbelievable house. I knew right then and there that I had to share it with you. It belongs to Dutch artist Paula Leen whose craft is to create a sublime collection of home accessories using wool felt. 

Her home is a reflection of her sophisticated and elegant talent. You can definitely see her Northern European roots in her design style. I'm amazed that even using a dark palette, Paula still managed to accomplish such a warm and serene ambiance by the clever use of natural materials and simple flowing lines. But what made me flip was how daring she was to paint the ceiling a rich black, something most people wouldn't even think of doing. Kudos to her!

HER WORKSHOP
Paula's superb style is also echoed in her studio where she creates the most graceful pieces of art. I even love how these bags full of wool manage to become a sculpture in the room.

HER WORK
Her beautiful collection mostly includes rugs, pillows, wall hangings, throws and even lamps. I would really enjoy one of her cozy throws at home this winter.
