Autumn giveaway - win a Coisa scarf

inspired by this beautiful Coisa scarf and some moody photos on 
the wall I really had some sylingfun the other day!
just love the new Autumnlook and moodboard in my home with the brown ,
 grey and ockre tones and the stunning black and white contrast.

a little while ago I received a mail from Coisa to introduce theirselves 
 and to ask me if I was interested in a collabaration.

Coisa is the label of Kim van der Wel. It was Kim's passion for design and 
exquisite fabrics that inspired her to create her own unique label in 2012. 
Coisa is all about comfortable scarves and shawls
 that are timeless,  practical and crafted from the highest quality materials as
Italian yarn (a combination of mohair and acrylic) , alpaca, cotton, silk and lambswool,
and all produced in limited numbers.  
New to their collection is the Coisa cardigan made of 100% merino wool.
Merino wool keeps you cool in the summer and warm during the colder season.

To be ready and warm for this coming autumn and winter season 
Coisa is giving away a beautiful Fluffy pebble scarf!

This bold and tough scarf with horizontal stripes creates a look that is effortlessly cool. 
The very soft Fluffly Coisa ends narrow so it falls nicely around the neck and makes
 the scarf also easy to use as a shawl. 

This is how to join in:

* follow Coisa on instagram (here
*  leave a comment below to let us know you are joining in! 

The lucky winner will be announced next week!

"The Portuguese word Coisa translates as: ‘that which cannot be accurately described’. 
To us this was the perfect name for the Coisa Original, which sparked the launch of our collection in December 2012. After all, we weren’t even sure if it was a scarf, shawl, poncho, cape or cardigan! 

In a nutshell, the Coisa is an all-rounder, designed to be worn just the way you want. 
Our items are manufactured in small studios in Portugal, The Netherlands, Turkey and Belgium,
 where we strictly adhere to responsible production and excellent working conditions."

the vt wonen & design fair

- inspiration - ideas- meetings - diy - trends- creativity -

this week I visited the "vtwonen & designfair" in Amsterdam
(the former woonbeurs and the biggest dutch interior and design fair) 
 where I really had a great time and where I met a lot of fellow bloggers!

I started my visit by admiring one of the most inspiring spots at the fair, 
the decorated home of vt wonen and its stunning garden
where a group of dutch bloggers (vosgesparis, april and may and Beeldsteil
created a beautiful blogger spot where visitors could follow creative workshops

Today an impression of this stunning house where we I found 
beautiful design pieces combined with vintage and more affordable furniture, 
an industrial and botanical atmosphere, a dreamkitchen, a stunning facade, 
workspaces created with tiles, warm and dark shades, amazing ceramics, 
great art, photos and prints on the wall and stylish monochrome accessories. 

Great styling work by the team of vtwonen magazine that really inspired me...
Did you have a favourite stand at the fair? 

                                                                                                                               photos elvs

 created by the mix of warm neutral tones 
and black and white details with
