Our new Interior Design Blogger Book is launched!

We launched last Friday our new Interior Design Blogger Book Best of Interior – Wohnideen aus dem wahren Leben. German publisher Callwey asked Igor, Ricarda and myself again to repeat as jury members and this is what we did since the beginning of 2016:  First, each of us suggested a bunch of international bloggers to be featured in the book, selected then later the submitted images, proposed Instagramers whose style would fit and complement the book, defined the overall direction of book chapters and picked three lucky winners on categories such as Best Individual Style, Best Creative Idea and Interior Blog of 2016.

And finally Igor and myself we have contributed with a few extra pages on Interior Design Trends we believe are relevant for 2016/17. I’d love to offer you today a giveaway and send you a book.


The launch took place during an evening event at the design house Ambiente Direct including an award ceremony conducted by Igor presenting the book itself and the three categories we had previously decided should be awarded: Best Interior Blog for Jules from Herz&Blut, Best Creative Idea for Eva from Waldfriedenstate and Best Individual Style for Holly’s blog Avenue Lifestyle.

I’d like to share now a few pages from the book. It’s edited in German but that should not hold you back from joining in the draw today since it’s very visual and you can easily understand the blog names and categories.

We wanted to include different styles to offer a wider range of ideas and inspiration for our readers and cover pretty much the entire home from living, dining, to kitchen, bedroom, kid rooms and bathrooms.

Plants play quite an important role in this issue, so does a good dose on individual taste reflected on quirky art galleries with wall hangings, wonderful textiles mixes and home offices to get inspired and draw ideas from.

This year’s edition has been jazzed up according to the spirit of (digital) times with a few Instagramers we thought you should know. I couldn’t help but recommending a lady from my hometown Barcelona which is Alejandra and her TheHangingPlants feed.

And, as mentioned before you can expect to read a few more trend articles on Terra, Playtime and Unknown Terrain I have featured in the book, whereas Igor explains why the Green Trend has become so relevant to your day-to-day life.
