Tropicool

The Urban Jungle Blogger theme for this summer is Tropicool.

New plants in the house! With the theme of Urban Jungle Bloggers in mind, I collected some new tropical flowering plants. They give a tropical vibe together with the banana plant and cacti.

It has been a while since my last post for Urban Jungle Bloggers. Instead of every month, the theme is now seasonal which is perfect but unfortunately I missed the Spring edition. So glad to join again this summer with Tropicool!

Tropicool

One of the plants I got is the Calathea Crocata Candela, also known as Eternal Flame. The flowers look like bright little orange flames rising up from the plant. The leaves have a beautiful dark green and purple colour.

Terracotta pots are my favourite, love the orange together with green leafy plants.

I also got this new tiny cactus last month, how to resist this little beauty?

I took my rotan chair from the garden to create an outside atmosphere in the house. First I made another styling setup with more of my plants, but I always seem to go back to less is more. I think it brings out the individual plants and makes them shine.

The pillow with green leaves is from H&M, the bench and sheep rug are from IKEA.

The little Bromelia Guzmania is just the opposite of the Calathea, light green leaves with a deep red flower. Love this color. I plan to repot it, so it can grow bigger.

Wishing you all a sunny and tropicool summer!

A poster from Mapiful has been on my wish list for a while. I was thrilled to order a print. This particular poster will be a present for my eldest son. He is traveling overseas for the first time and I thought it would be special if he would get a print of the city where he starts his journey, New York.

The poster from Mapiful is beautiful and I love the graphic design. The order process is really easy. You can customize the text if you want to. I decided to keep the original. But I also love the fact that you can make your own design, zoom in, zoom out and choose any place in the world to display. The poster was delivered from Sweden in no time.

Love the stunning design of the maps ♡

I am proud of my son and especially the person he has become. Soon he will be moving out of our home, into the world. This poster will always remind him of his first journey, traveling the world.

What is your favourite place in the world?

I promised to show you some pictures of where I put the lovely print that I won with the style {at}mine challenge from september. The art print is now hanging in our bedroom. I love it, it is really beautiful and minimal. I am really happy with it. It goes well with the blue star fern next to our bed. Thank you so much!

There are still some of original details in our apartment which was built in the 1950's, like the original Bruynzeel door and the heater in our bedroom. As you can see the cats take over the bed whenever they can!

Have a great weekend!
