Exploring Creativity with Hema, the Dutch Discount Design Store

Love Scandi design?  I’ve got a perfect find for you.

Hema is a Dutch discount design store along the lines of Danish discount design store, Tiger and beloved Swedish giant’s Ikea Marketplace.  Hema has got a wide range of items from cooking utensils to arts and crafts materials.  They have a six shops in the United Kingdom currently, including one in Victoria Station and another in Stanstead Airport.

Being a stationery junkie, I love Hema’s collection of stationery items.  Hema was a natural choice when my daughter needed a new notebook for the homework her piano teacher assigns her after lessons.

Like many kids, my daughter loves making her items truly her own.  Her creativity went into full flow when she personalised a Hema notebook with some other finds from the Hema stationery department.

The personalisation takes intense concentration. And, let’s face it, everything looks better with washi tape.

What to write? Maybe the word PIANO.

The finished product looks great.

My daughter loves her personalised Hema notebook.  You know what I love?  She will find it hard to misplace (accidentally, of course!) the neon orange  notebook when it comes time to practice her piano homework!

(The stationery was gifted by Hema.  All opinions are my own).
