People often ask us where we find all the truly inspiring and creative people we feature on the blog. Mainly hours of following link after link on the web. Sometimes it’s a quiet cup of tea and a new design book. That’s how I found Bastienne van Bockel of Studio BAS_I.C. I always check the credits especially if I love the images. (Chic modern: choosing styles, colours, materials and furnishings, introduction by Ali Hanan, Conran Octopus 2002 is the book by the way.) A google away and I found Bastienne’s website. I love the fresh, uncomplicated modern girl feel to her work, the definite European vibe and the fact that this could be your home too…. if you had a great eye like Bastienne 😉 Simple and stylish.
