Baptized by Nature Design is a functional and affordable Eco furniture collection made of driftwood in combination with other materials.
At CosyNEVE, we love the creative process that Cathérine Op de Beeck operates. She is using the strenght of nature while respecting it. It is a very inspirational work and I hope you will enjoy it.
A creative story about wood formed and grayed by nature.
Cathérine Op de Beeck (14/01/82 Roeselare) makes modern, functional little furniture and useful accessories with a very unique look. Every creation is unique by its literal meaning. Her collection is made from driftwood, from tree trunks that travelled hundreds of kilometers through the river Rhone in to the Mediterranean Sea to finally end up on the Camargue beaches to start their bleaching process. Every 3 months, Cathérine herself goes to the unique beaches of the Camarque to carefully select her wood. “Every piece has its own character, its own story, its own coloring process” according to Cathérine. “I cannot have anyone else make that selection. My inspiration starts by feeling the wood, hearing the sea, the search on the abandoned, bewildered beach.”
“An exclusive and forceful furniture collection that unifies the strenght of stainless steel (Inox Aisi 316) and the imperfection of the Camargue driftwood from France in a fluent and magical way.”

Here are a few simple tips to make your kitchen a better place while staying within a budget.
1. Declutter: 0 €
We often tend to keep lots of little things visible in the kitchen, some to have them handy, others because they are pretty or sentimental. Then gradually, we find ourselves faced with an amalgam where we finally can’t see … anything!
To feel comfortable in a room, we have to be able to free our mind. Thus, by leaving some empty spaces, it appears that we have always some room left to add things if necessary. We feel more free. Conversely, if the space is cluttered, you feel overwhelmed and adding an element is impossible.
Here’s an example: BEFORE: Doing the dishes seem a chore. AFTER: What a pleasant place to do the dishes with a view of the greenery!
What we did here:
Remove the little trinkets and postcards,
Place garlic and onions elsewhere (because in front of the window, they germinate faster!)
Keep only a few decorative elements of the same style (up to three),
Add a little greenery, a few leaves considered as weeds in your garden can give a completely different style to your home!
We voluntarily leave the tomato, it gives a touch of color, and makes cooking more alive, more human.
Now, what to do with all that has been removed here?
2. Rearrange intelligently: for less than 40 €
Where to display the postcards?
One solution might be to install this magnetic chalkboard on one wall of the kitchen. IKEA, € 14.95
If you only have a smaller space or if you want to customize a wall, try painting covered with magnetic chalkboard paint. Expect to pay about € 12 per 250 ml of paint Magner, about 0.5 m in 2 to 3 layers.
Under your wall cabinets, install a bar GRUNDTAL available at IKEA and by mail order, 40 to 80 cm for a price of € 2.99 to 3.99. On this bar, you can hang all sorts of things, such as cutlery drainer, which would nicely carry the garlic and onions! Its price: € 4.99.
What about all those little decorative items left?
If you value these objects and find them all nicer than each other, try to sort them in groups of 3 or 4 of the same style. Then, just display some of these objects and keep the others in the closet. You can then change your setting to suit your desires, without having to get rid of your little decorative objects.
The result: a stylish kitchen, tidy, and pleasant to live for less than 40 euros!
