For everybody who couldn’t make it to Milan this year. These are some impressions from my tea cups ‘Anabella’ at the Salone
del Milano. Thanks to Moooi my cups got a spot in their showroom and were presented next to dried Verbena tea leaves, which
were the base for this design.

businesscards_katipeifer

They have arrived…my very first (real) business cards. After years and years of doing all the steps on my own, including cutting
and printing I decided to handle these really professional and give some of the steps out of my hands. And I am really pleased
with this decision.

01.03.2016 | THE ADVENTURE BEGINS

The adventure begins

Some big steps were made last week. I registered my business and I am happy to announce that from today on ‘katipeifer’ is
officially a company. Not long anymore and the first products will be for sale. I will keep you up to date, so keep an eye on this
website and my Instagram.

 

17.02.2016 | STICKER

2016.02.22_blog-sticker

Finally, it is done. The sticker for the package of my cups “Anabella” arrived fresh from printing and I am really happy to share
the result with you. Just a few little adjustments left to do and then the complete package will be done and purchasable soon.

 

31.12.2015 | GUTEN RUTSCH

winter_anabella_blog 03

It is already the end of the year 2015. A lot to look back at and even more to look forward to in the new year ahead of us.
I planned some exciting things for 2016, but for now I keep them secret. Today is about celebrating with family and friends
anyway, which is why I want to wish you all a “Guten Rutsch” as we say in Germany.

 

08.09.2015 | ALL ABOUT ANABELLA

At the moment I am working on the last bits of the package from my ‘Anabella’ cups. The final outfit is taking shape and I hope it
will be done this week! I am also planning to post some new photographs of them soon. Here is a tiny sneak peek of what I have
in mind.

27.08.2015 | BACK HOME & BACK TO BUSINESS

I have some incredible and inspiring weeks behind my back and now that I am here again it feels a bit like a dream. Luckily I
have proof in form of thousands of photo’s, sweet little findings I took with me and a little sunkissed tan on me, that (let’s be
honest) unfortunately will not last as long as I would like to. Especially with this grey weather in this city. During my trip I found
the luxury of not spending a lot of time on the internet and social media, except from one platform I could not keep my hands
off: Instagram. If you would like to take a glimpse of my past weeks then click here. And if you want you can also follow me there
to be up to date all the time. While you do that, I will go back to business and work on some lists and plans for the future.

 

06.07.2015 | SOUTHEASTASIA

Next to all the changes in my life at the moment I have another great adventure in front of me. It is time to go on a new journey
and get some new influences and inspiration…sketchbooks are packed and the camera is ready! From the beginning of July till
the mid of August I will be on an exploration of Southeastasia. Have a great summer!

MOVING (ON)

Moving on - Anabella cups

It is time to move (on)! A couple of weeks ago I made some decisions that have quite some influence on the future. One of them
includes a change of scenery, because I am moving to a new place. It is time for me to say “Houdoe” to my student city Breda and
go on new adventures in a bigger city with new opportunities and new influences that will hopefully also have a good impact on
me and my work. I will temporarily move to Leiden and around autumn it is the plan to move to the new home city called Utrecht,
nice and central within the heart of the Netherlands. I already moved a lot of stuff and I am also happy that the cups of my tea set
‘Anabella’ survived it all in one piece. More news are coming soon!

WALKS TO INSPIRE #2

WTI #2 Fès by katipeifer

Time flies and it has been way too long since I took you on a little trip with me. It is one year ago since I visited inspiring Fès in
Morocco and because of this I want to bring you on a colourful walk down memory lane. Different is one of the words I would
use to describe Fès. It seems that time stood still in some of the places I have visited. Especially the Medina, the old city of Fès,
with all its labyrinths and narrow walkways was a unique experience. Another term that speaks for this place is love for hand-crafts.
From leather dyeing, to detailed ceramics, to delicious food, this city has a lot more to offer and is always good for some
unexpected surprises. A cultural and visual adventure awaits you there and if you have the chance to visit it, do not hesitate,
but for now enjoy this walk to inspire.

PHOTOSHOOT

Yesterday was one of the first really nice and warm days in the Netherlands and even if I could not really enjoy it outside,
I had a good and especially productive day anyway. I temporarily rearranged my room to set it up for a photoshoot to realize
a photo for my contact-page. By the way I also joined Instagram…happy to be part of a new platform to share my love
for photography, design and travel.

NEW LOGO

New logo

Spring is here, a time of transformation and new things.  The days get longer, the temperature rises and nature blossoms.
In time with spring I want to give my website a new jacket. I have been working on the branding of www.katipeifer.com
and today I can introduce the new logo to you. Exciting times and I am really happy about it!

WALKS TO INSPIRE #1

WTI #1 Barcelona

Recently I went on a trip to Barcelona over the course of a long weekend. Coming home and then going through the photos
I had taken made me think. It made me remember all the beautiful views I had, all the characteristic parts of the city that I
had seen, and all the inspiration in every corner. Maybe this would be a good time to share some more of me with you all,
and show you what inspires me in my everyday life. I hope that by collecting this in a new series, “Walks to Inspire”, it will
give you a closer look at the beauty that I see all around us. And who knows, maybe this little spark of inspiration will
benefit some of you as well!

Hello 2015!

After a more (businesswise) quiet year of 2014 I want to make a change in this new given year. I learned and realized a lot
about working and trying to handle my own starting business next to it in the past year. And as a result of this I want to
make some changes. Some new plans and ideas are developing at the moment to keep me more in the flow and give this
‘baby’ a greater way for the future. I am excited for this adventure… let’s have fun and enjoy the ride!

Hello 2015!
