LIKE TO HAVE: THE TOTE BAG

April 28, 2011

I really like Tote Bags. I bought one of Alphabet Bags in London last March and get one at We Like Fashion in April. If you want to start a collection you have a lot of choice. Take a look inside the Tote Bag Book and you’ll find all kind of bags you like to have. Almost all of them carry a message like ‘buy me a drink’. And they are decorated beautifully. Price: 23 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: BOOKS BY DESIGN HOTELS

February 14, 2011

Oh my God… I try to save for a Jerome Dreyfuss bag but now Design Hotels comes with two books I have to have. Take a look at their cover. Beautiful design. Simple with a good typography. And then the cardboard case (only for the limited edition books). Inside the Green One you will find all of the 200 Design Hotels. I have their 2010 book and it’s the perfect start of a sunday morning (thinking of where to go next). Inside the Illustration Cover you will find the behind the scenes stories of all the creators, architects and other driving forces behind the hotels we love so much. Thank God, my Birthday is coming up…

Price: 44 euro (or 69 euro for the limited edition), check out: www.designhotels.com/shop

TRIED & TESTED: SELEXYZ MAASTRICHT

November 10, 2010

The price for the most beautiful book store in the world goes to Selexyz Dominicanen. Because it’s located in a former church. If your in Maastricht you really have to check it out. It will overwhelm you. Next to the books and magazines there’s a Coffeelovers corner where you can drink a cup of coffee.

TRIED & TESTED: RESTORED AMSTERDAM

July 28, 2010

Most striking feature:

The absolute paradise for gifts. For yourself (I bought this tiny little letters for my bedroom for 12,50 euro) and for others. For example: I have a friend who loves fashion and now I’ve found the perfect gift: a book called Fashionary. It’s a sort of Moleskine but on every page there’s a female figure. The only thing you need to do is draw them a nice little outfit. So you become a fashion designer yourself (price: 25 euro). I also spotted cool cushions, jewelry and clothes. Must visit while you’re in Amsterdam.
