Finally! Was it just us, or did it feel like winter would never end? So let’s get stuck in straight away and give everything a makeover. Hello nature, hello elegant wardrobe, hello spring-filled house, hello fresh energy!
DIY and kitchen queen
The spring dossier contains loads of inspiration for celebrating spring with the joy of plants - in your home and on your plate. Together with Dutch chef Yvette van Boven we created some delicious tasting and magnificently looking spring dishes: a hummus, falafel and tulip bouquet, and as dessert a pannacotta filled with roses and dressed with crispy honeycomb.
In two DIY's you learn how to dress your home for spring. There is a tutorial for a flower curtain made from real flowers, and a tutorial on how to create your own flower wreath filled with colorful tulips.
Indoors and outdoors
Nature is blooming and so you can get stuck into the garden or balcony. Tidying, cleaning, all the preparations so that we can really enjoy our spring garden. And indoors? When you bring a colourful bromeliad into your home? Will you fill your living room with In & Out plants? Or are you so desperate for summer to arrive you’ll go for a tropical touch with the banana plant?
