Our Creative Space by Rebecca Toh

Bloesem Living | Bloesem Creative Space by Rebecca Toh

We have had an amazing week, very intense but super energetic. Our creative space truly works like a magnet. So many people who walk in are inspired by the things they see and that truly makes me happy.

I was thrilled when my favorite photographer from Singapore, Rebecca Toh,  said yes to my invitation to come and take some photographs of the space. I love her work because it is so natural… probably the only photographer I feel comfortable with while they take pictures of me.

Rebecca arrived mid-day and it was funny how we were all meeting for the first time in real life, after only connecting virtually for many years. It helped that Rebecca was carrying a camera, so that gave us a clue. She got the grand tour of the showroom with an introduction to all our products. She beautifully captured the pillows I had hand-woven recently, as well as the leather straps installed in several parts of the studio. They are truly a great addition to the space. With the leather straps and dowels in front of our three windows, they allow us to hang plants and some beautiful window decorations, while the leather handles elsewhere in the studio act as either display or storage solutions for our wonderfully colorful mats that fall over if not secured properly. (All items can be found in the Bloesem online store.)

Rebecca has an ease about her that really made for a very comfortable “session”. Though in all honesty we did try to tidy up and make everything look as perfect as possible for photographs, when she came, it was all very relaxed with coffee and conversation, and I must say, we all did have a great time and I think that is very evident in these photographs of the Bloesem creative space, which I love!

One of the greatest things about having a space is being in the presence of other creative minds like Anouk of Time Capsules (pictured above), our studio mate. Anouk is always sharing great ideas and emailing us inspiration, we could have a better person to have in the space together with Zara and myself. Psst: we are also eagerly awaiting Anouk’s latest creation, a new Make History project! We’ll let you in on the scoop as soon as we hear anything about it.

A special thank you to my wonderful co-worker Zara … she is a multi-talented and just a great spirit to have around! All of this would not have been possible without her help and energy! – xoxo irene
