Jeanine Hays was on of the first bloggers who welcomed Bloesem to the community in 2006…this super friendly women is the author of the well-known blog Aphro-chic but she is also the designer of these funky pillows …. I was so happy for Jeanine when I heard about her new collection, congratulations girl!


 The patterns are really nice and I love Black and Yellow…and I love the Hans Wegner chair in the picture above :)… Please click here to see the whole collection from AphroChic and click here to read Jeanine her blog. {a lovely interview with Jeanine}

    Wonderful collection! Love the yellow ikat. I can’t (and don’t want to) stay away from yellow.

    Irene, thank you so much for writing about the collection! I can’t believe it was in 2006 that we met as blog friends. Thank you for being an incredible support to AphroChic for all of these years.
