…………..Thank You Arounna……….
When I started Bloesem in 2006 I was living in Toronto and it was here were I met the lovely Arounna during the one-of-a-kind show. I fell in love with her designs immediately and when we started talking we instantly became friends. She even invited my family and me over to their gorgeous loft, which John, Arounna's husband almost completely renovated by himself. But soon this loft became to small and Arounna and John decided to move to a home, studio and shop all in one in one of the funkiest neighborhoods from Toronto, unfortunately I haven't been there yet, but seeing these images makes me want to go back to Toronto real soon…
