Dutch design studio  is a partnership between Ina Meijer and Matthijs van Cruijsen. This multi-disciplinary design duo is noted for their residential, retail and restaurant interiors, as well as events, products and identity design. I came across their work a little while ago, and I now can’t remember where and how – but luckily I remembered to bookmark . Speaking of their site, it’s still largely under construction, and I haven’t been able to find out any more information about them. Luckily their work is just so beautiful and it speaks for itself.

I specifically love the feel of their barns – so elegant, yet unpretentious and welcoming. And I adore the colour palettes they work with. Sophisticated rustic – is there such a thing? I think these guys may have just created it.
