At home with La Fête

Tuesday, 20 August 2013 by Irene Hoofs

Sometimes a connection just works right away ... and this was certainly the case with Nora Vrba from La Fête   and me. Ever since Nora has become a regular contributor to the BKids craft projects page she and I often chat via email ... so it wasn't only logical that we met in person when i was in AMsterdam last month. 

It always feels a bit like a blind-date when meeting someone after being friends online for a long time. Nora was kind enough to invite me to her home. So I brought my camera (only with a very small close-up lens) and was hoping she would allow me to take some shots. To give you an impression how this lovely Mom of 3 year old Puck has decorated her home.

Nora lives in an apartment on the third and fourth floor in Amsterdam. They completely renovated and connected two floors to each other ... and they have a rooftop garden which is not very common in Amsterdam.

At the end of november 2011, just when Nora decided to quit her job and start as a freelance art-director, she was diagnosed with breast-cancer. After intense treatment Nora was able to fight the cancer and we are all very happy to say this horrible disease has left her body! Of course I was a bit hesitant to ask Nora about this tough period in her life. But she was very open about it and I was in absolute awe about her strength and positive attitude towards the future. Truly inspiring and admirable!!

The moment Nora found her strength back she wanted to do something productive and so she started her online shop La Fête. All the beautiful party decorations are carefully handmade by herself.

Next to that Nora loves to collect art ... soon she will be writing posts for Bloesem Living and tell us more about where to find, to buy and what to look for when bringing art to your home. 

Today just some lovely impressions from Puck's little corners in their home. Hope you enjoy my images!
