For me Hotel Andaz in Amsterdam is so beautiful and really hip.
Totally love the big bells. They make me feel like Alice in the Wonderland. The building which holds the Hotel is that of the former public Library and the interior design is by Marcel Wanders.
Really friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Also a nice place to have coffee or go for dinner.
Enjoy your weekend,
PS: Our holidays started today, we all need a nice little break.

You all know that I love the fifties. Not just furniture and home decor but also vintage clothing from that era makes my heart beat faster. So I was delighted to finally meet Hester and Marielle from House of Dots.
They create the perfect vintage look with their amazing dresses and some of them you could easily wear in daily life. I can't decide which dress is my favorite. My idea is to go to visit the girls in Haarlem in their studio.
How is your week going??
PS: the 1950s fashion

Ingrid from Ingthings was hosting a book party for her new book Kringloopgeluk yesterday in Amsterdam. The afternoon could not have been better, I met some wonderful people, they are really lovely.
Lots of chatting was going on and I really enjoyed the homemade cakes, the carrot cake was amazing (not sure who made it, but it tasted like more).Now I'm the proud owner of a signed copy of Kringloopgeluk
PS: cool to see the new and larger shop of All the luck in the world.

This morning I had a look a the new Rijksmuseum. It looks amazing and I just realised I missed that museum very much.
We also had a look at the new Marks and Spencer shop which opened yesterday... yeah after 10 years they are finally back in Amsterdam.
When I got home there was a nasty surprise waiting for me, the strong wind destroyed some parts of my garden. Let's hope Mister Kay has some ideas and can help me.
P.S: real beauty sketches by Dove.wonderful idea

Spent nearly all weekend in the garden. Only on Saturday morning we had a trip to a small flea market.
What a weekend full of sun, that gives you so much positive energy. We had our first evenning meal in the garden. Hope there will be lots more this summer.
Now we are just tired.

Greenwich Village in Haarlem (NL) showcases furniture, lightning and homeware. Mariu the owner likes to keep the shop dynamic and her taste is amazing. Look at the amazing blue sofa, that would look wonderful in our living room.
I always find great little gifts there. So next time when you're in town have a look.
PS: I love Labour and Wait

Only three weeks to go and Crown Prince Alexander will be the new king of the Netherlands on the 30th of April. Last weekend the first orange souvenirs turned up in the shops. I was looking for an orange T-shirt for Nila but ended up buying one from the Hema for myself, lol. Also I got a cookies tin for my mum but then we started to eat the orange cookies... ups.
If you are planing to come to Amsterdam at the
30th of April, here is some info
Now you know what I will be wearing... look out for me.

and a little bit of painting.
Tell you I feel much better !!
