For those of you who’ve never heard of Leen Bakker, let me introduce them to you. In 1928 Cornelis Bakker opened a soft furnishing shop in Rotterdam. Years later Cornelis son, Leen, turned his father’s shop into a chain of stores selling affordable home wares and furniture. Nowadays Leen Bakker counts 180 stores throughout The Netherlands, Belgium and the Dutch Antilles.
I have to admit that in the past I never really shopped at Leen Bakker as their products never really tickled me pink. But when I was told that Leen Bakker was about to change and get a fresh new look and with that fresh new products, I got really excited.
The new 101 woonideeën collection for Leen Bakker really caught my eye. I’m in love with all the red copper products. Especially the copper wire baskets are to die for and the cute copper candle holders.
I picked this tray and spray painted it in my favourite pink as I really love the red copper and pink combo. It looks warm, stylish but yet very playful. I mixed it with all sorts of Leen Bakker candle holders and one brown glass vase that sort of turns copper coloured through the reflection of the pink tray. Who knew that I was going to love this?
We always have a lot of blankets in the house as the house is old and the ceilings high, it gets pretty chilly here in winter days. The red copper wire baskets are not just for storing logs they work great for storing blankets too. This one is a proper big basket that now set home in the dining room so that our dinner guests can grab one for extra comfort and warmth – ah!
On top of the table are two really cute bubble glass vases I love. I don’t really like plain glass vases as they can be so dull. The bubbles give that extra bit of depth.
I got a bit carried away with ordering those copper wire baskets. I use them now for lots of things. They look so good on white. The Jurre bench stands perfect in front of the radiator to warm my bum when the heating goes back on. I already know that once BooBoo gets the sight of the Jurre bench she’s going to claim it hers. And why not decorate our radiators as we really need them in this climate? I don’t mind a good radiator photo.
Look how happy my dining room looks with all these wonderful products. Thank you Leen Bakker for changing your look and for the beautiful new products.
