One of the treasured art pieces we have in our living room is the paper cut map of Amsterdam by Famille Summerbelle. I just love the details of it (some of them are so cute and funny!) and the concentric shape of the city, with all its canals, which makes it so typically 'Amsterdam'. The ...

I was in my friend Julie's lovely apartment the other day and as always I couldn't stop gazing at all the pretty things around me. She's just so creative and has such great style, it's apparent in every little corner of her house! One thing that struck me and which I thought was SO clever, ...

Engel + Famille Summerbelle bamboo tableware collection
My friend Sabien's company Engel is all about partying. It became well-known for its bunting, but nowadays Engel offers everything you need to celebrate and decorate: big pompoms, fun party hats, colourful garlands, pretty paper flowers and so much more -- it really is a party treasure cove. Engel also offers handy (and eco-friendly!) bamboo children's tableware: sweet little sets including a ...

When Julie moved to Amsterdam a few years ago together with her husband Simon ...

Famille Summerbelle: Screen Printed City Maps
I am such a big fan of Famille Summerbelle, especially of the hand screen-printed city maps. I love the way every tiny detail on the map is so well thought out and incorporated into the image. Julie, the designer, cuts out every little detail by hand with a scalpel. I cannot even imagine the kind ...
