In the wonderful world of blogging we, at The Red Door, are both writers and followers. One of the many blogs we follow with joy is Bloesom, a daily source of all things beautiful for the home. Followed by many it was listed among 'The World's Best 50 Design Blogs' by Times online last year. Created in December 2006, founder, editor and graphic designer Irene Hoofs aspires to bring outside-the-mainstream daily finds to her readers. We particularly love the sneak peeks in to some of the world's most inspiring spaces in her Let's Get Personal home and studio tours. 

So it was a fantastic surprise to see that Irene had recently featured one of our much-loved designers olive and brown! Based in Manchester, England, olive and brown creates beautiful things through illustration, collage and embroidery. Founder and designer Katy Brown is over the silvery moon to have been featured, "Bloesem has been a source of inspiration for me for a few years now so imagine my sheer delight when I saw my work on it......"
