How nice that you have continued to follow or just started following us! We are overwhelmed by all the nice and encouraging words. In the meantime, we are working hard on the website, our instagram page and of course on the trend themes.
It’s been a while since we announced our termination of THJS. And as I (Titia) said at the time: I will continue to work in trends and interior design, that’s what I love to do most!In the past period I have worked on beautiful assignments; custom trend forecast and design, both graphics and products. Thank you for your trust!And behind the scenes I also started a new collaboration. Because how nice it is to share this work with someone. Visiting trade fairs together, sparring about new colours, new fabrics, techniques and designs.I met Bonnie years ago at a trend agency where we both worked. There was an instant click. Friendly and in ‘style’. We have kept in touch all these years and now there is an opening to work on new plans together…May I introduce you to: Bonnie Prins
Every now and then Titia and I sign up for a workshop. Because we enjoy making something ourselves, but also because we would like to get to know a technique or material better for our work. When developing products, it helps us to better understand what you can or cannot do with certain materials. Last year we attended a porcelain workshop at Harmen en Elke. And tomorrow, a workshop on old photography techniques Robert Broos.
Another thing that strikes us more and more are the many folding screens and wings that we encounter everywhere. As a result, rooms are divided into different areas, in which different activities can take place. Moreover, it gives a feeling of privacy, something that we have a great need for in the present time, in which we must be “always available”.In Milan we also saw a lot of arches in the interior and as an accessory. They create a sense of protection for what is underneath. But at the same time, your gaze is also consciously guided to that which is behind the arch. An interesting game with protection, privacy and curiosity...Even with chairs, this search for security is striking, both indoors and outdoors. Many sofas and chairs have a backrest as a kind of tub, which gives a very sheltered feeling.
