TO SEE: DESIGNERSMAKERS LONDON

May 5, 2011

I visited London in March and from the beginning of April there’s a fantastic weekly market happening just 15 minutes walking from the hotel I was staying. And for me it’s a reason to book another ticket. Look at what they are selling: stuff young designers make and you instantly want to have for yourself. It’s a perfect place to get presents as well. Every Saturday till September 24th.

TO GO: VT WONEN POP UP STORE AMSTERDAM

May 1, 2011

If you’re in Amsterdam or planning to go there, you need to focus your trip around the Haarlemmerdijk. Dutch magazine VT Wonen opened a temporarily shop last week. Huh, a magazine opening a shop? Yes. VT Wonen thought: our readers can get inspiration out of our magazine, but in our store they can actually buy the things the stylists of the magazine like. Why turn your magazine into an iPad app, while you can make it into a real life hotspot. I love it. Open till May 8th.
