Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam


Often people ask me where to sleep when visiting Amsterdam ... well this might be a good place to stay: the &Klevering apartment. Right in the city centre and a very authentic and typical Dutch ambiance.

Seeing so many design accessories in this B&B is no surprise as the owners are also the founders of &Klevering, a well-known home decoration shop here in Amsterdam. A visit to Amsterdam is not complete for me with a stop-over in one of their outlets.

The kitchen below is spot on, cool with the wood and green accessories.

I love seeing my friend Jurianne Matter her pop-up poster on the wall ...

Sponsor spotlight: Chris Knight



Photographer and visual artist Chris Knight from Chicago travelled all over the world... and photographed bands like Radiohead and U2! Constantly searching for new ways to print his images on and turning them into little pieces of art. I have never seen prints on small stones before, have you? But I kinda like these little cuties ... 

The stars and stripes on wood are my favorite and will look cool in any room.

Gispen in Amsterdam


I am in Amsterdam! And working from our Amsterdam apartment is a true fest ... so let's start with something typical Dutch this morning ...

The Gispen chair ... most Dutch people know what I am talking about and perhaps you do too? But did you know Gispen has a whole assortment of beautiful design pieces. In fact big names like Gerrit Rietveld designed furniture for this brand. 

When I saw the images of the 2013 collection over at Studio Aandacht I thought sharing with them today is a good idea. 







Already 3 years in a row  Ben and Tatjana are responsible for the photography and styling and they are doing an amazing job if I may say... 

I totally agree with the 'Homework' section. Nowadays many people enjoy working at home, but forget to treat themselves (like me) with a proper office chair ... I wish I could have one of these too. Must be so much more comfortable when working. 

Gispen's website and online shop is right here ...
