'Een bloemetje op tafel' is a new florist shop in Rotterdam.

My friend Lysbeth and her partner in crime Johan just know everything about flowers and recently opened a new shop.

Lysbeth and Johan both are very talented florists and they got excellent taste. Their florist shop is decorated with great 'green' style, exactly how a florist shop should be!

In the flowershop you can also find the most beautiful houseplants, vintage flower paintings, moroccan glassware and the colorful vases by Foekje Fleur, Lysbeth's daughter.

The gorgeous small typical Lysbeth-bouquets are arranged with flowers from her own garden.

Een bloemetje op tafel [flowers on the table] is located at the Nieuwe Binnenweg 98 in Rotterdam.

blinds up

urban jungle kitchen urban jungle kitchen urban jungle kitchen

Our houseplants all seem to need a lot of light and they prefer to sit in front of the window. A conservatory obviously is the perfect place for houseplants.

The bay window in our kitchen is quite light, but it's impossibly to put all plants on the windowsill.

A couple of plants can stay in the garden during the summer months, but most of them can not be exposed to direct sunlight. I've saved a few 'garden campers' just in time.

The wooden blinds in the kitchen are up, we have enough privacy due to of the overgrown front yard.

The plants florish, so the conditions seem perfect in this bright place.
