Very delighted to invite you to the launch of another Bloesem blog...
B:Studio goes live today!
The Studio is all about photography. We aspire to showcase the highest quality work of international photographers, carefully screened. "We" refers to Mrs. Robinson and me, Irene Hoofs. Mrs. Robinson is the photography agency my good friend Monique Grondijs started in Amsterdam. In a former life Monique and I worked together at this somewhat famous Dutch photography agency. Super excited our paths have crossed again at the right time. So I am proud to say that the team is back together to work on something that has been close to our hearts for many years. Combining Monique's expertise in photography with my online presence in one platform, we believe B:Studio will bring photographers and readers the best of both worlds.
Back in 2006 when I started B:Living it was my passion for images that triggered me to start a blog. And still they play a crucial role in deciding what to share with you on Bloesem blogs. B:Studio is different: rather than focusing on the object of the image, B:Studio will focus on the images themselves and the talented artists who make them. We will learn about their work, passions and professional lives.
By bringing photo series closer to you, we believe we can give photographers more international exposure which will help them to more successfully promote their work. Our experience is that photography, although an exciting industry, can be a tough business for both new and established artists. We believe blogs can be a powerful platform to create more awareness and publicity.
B:Studio is meant to put a big spotlight on the photographer. Why? I spoke about this often with friends who make their living as photographers and asked them what they would like to see happening for them online. We came up with the idea of creating a new blog B:Studio where photographers can show their work. With the aim to be noticed by potential clients, so photographers can continue doing what they do best: making inspiring images for all of us. READ MORE...
is not an agency. We simply bring the right people together. Our vision is to be a platform for photographers to connect with a global audience and potential clients.
We invite you to visit B:Studio
everyday so you can find that special image, new talent or inspiration.
A very special Thank You to Ben Lambers from Studio Aandacht.
Ben designed logo number 3 for the Bloesem family. A bottle of Parfume, a little Elephant and a catchy camera all with Studio Aandacht's distinct signature.... pure honest clean and eye-catching.
Studio Aandacht : What do they do
Essentially they are 'look-and-feel' makers with a pragmatic approach towards marketing and PR.
They work with brands, magazines, museums, photographers, designers and teach at art academy's.
Helping them, not only to look good, but also to make smart, strategic business choices.
Ben Lambers is a super talent and wonderful to work with.
Let's face it, the pirate theme is not going anywhere anytime soon, and to be honest I am happy about that. Especially when you see an awesome children's bedding print like Winter Water Factory's latest collaboration with The Land of Nod. I wish those wave sheets came in queen size. You can find my picks here :: 22.214.171.124.5.6.

I am so glad to see the Neon trend is still very much alive... both in fashion and interiors... just look here with all the neon inspiration on pinterest. Perhaps you remember how Vivien and I launched the BKids Wear Neon jewelry collection... and today I thought it was time to give it some renewed attention.
I used the beautiful kids clothes from Etoile et Moi to give the necklaces that little extra and for you to be able to imagine how the necklaces might look when wearing soft beautiful pastel colors with them.

The Etoile et Moi collection for girls is by far my most favorite line. I absolutely LOVE the blouses and skirts for the summer. The designs are fresh, funky but sjiek and I would dress my girls if I would have them in these clothes.
Etoile et Moi is the label from Katell Le Cué-Guiho, who also lives in Kuala Lumpur but is French from origine...
..BKids Wear Neon ... go shopping!
