Design meets vintage

It’s already there for a while, the pop-up shop and expo from Dutch Design Year in the Beurs van Berlage. If you haven’t been yet, it is definitely worth a visit and now prolonged until the end of february.

Lots of new products from designers combined with vintage and styled in a non-conventional way in this beautiful building in the heart of Amsterdam. There was a blanket from Mae Engelgeer to fall in love with. Cups with insects from Elke van den Berg and much more. Just go and discover it yourself.

Illuminated light sculptures in my own home town. This is the second year the Amsterdam Light Festival turns on the lights. Take the illuminade walking route in the evening and enjoy the magic.

New Beginnings

Leaves falling, beginning of a new season.

Fall leaves
For me the start of a new career, I am setting up an Online Concept Store.

Selling beautiful and unique lifestyle products from talented designers, artists and small brands. I might be adding some vintage pieces as well, still thinking about that.
Lack of space in my own home for all the things I love, made me realise that by setting up an online store other people could enjoy all these beautiful products too and I could have the best of both worlds.

It is a long process but now taking shape. We are currently working on the logo and buying the first items. Writing a blog, setting up social media accounts, it is all very new and exciting!

Through my blog I will keep you posted of the latest and hope to see you in as soon as it is online.
