Designer_Visits Monday, 24 June 2013 by Irene Hoofs An illustrator and publisher of ‘Kleursprookjes’ (Colour Fairy Tales) Caroline Ellerbeck lives with Gilles and her three children Luuk (9), Fien (5), Flores (2) on a ground floor apartment (from the nineteen twenties) in Rotterdam West. Seven years ago Caroline and Gilles bought this ground floor apartment in the New West part of Rotterdam. An apartment in this case doesn't mean one floor ... no there are three floors, and the back is bordering a surprisingly large garden. She has a nice view of her garden from her office located on the ground floor. Also Gilles works from home.
This post is also available in: Chinese (Traditional) No one would ever think of enjoying the space within construction scaffolding (or sidewalk sheds). But, in New York City, they are so prevalent (stretching 189 miles if lined end to end), that students from the Parsons School of Design created Soft Walks - simple DIY kits with chair pieces, a counter, a light fixture, a planter, and a green trellis that anyone can pick up and install onto the beams of their nearest scaffolded area. The initiative aims to transform nearly 6,000 construction sites, equaling 189 miles of covered sidewalk. Soft Walks transform construction scaffolding from a dark, covered walkway into a rest stop for busy city dwellers to stop and have a seat, or even eat and socialize.

Christina Elleni. So in between working days and staying up waaaaay too late at night (re) reading The Hunger Games Trilogy (I'm so scared for Peeta even though I've read the books before!), I managed to pull myself together and get some creative work done! Well.... Zab came over today to eat mangoes, lollies and De'lights (ok so Zab ate half a mango and I ate EVERYTHING else) ...and to take some photos for my Etsy store!
