BREATHTAKING NORWAY

May 4, 2011

Take a look at this pictures. Imagine yourself standing over there. The view, the fresh air, the mountains: isn’t this breath taking? And we all know that pictures didn’t get close to seeing it in real life. For all of you planning a roadtrip to Norway? Go!

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.

TRIED & TESTED: BOERDERIJLODGES TWENTE

April 24, 2011

Most striking feature:

I don’t have kids, but if I had them there is only one place to go in the Netherlands for a week of fun (and design of course) in summer: Boerderijlodges in Twente. There are several farms turned into design lodges. Kids can play outside and pretend they run a farm. They can chase chickens or cuddle with a kitten. And meanwhile the mother can relax in the designtub inside. Follow a yoga lesson. Or just read a book. Get some homemade cheese or bread at a nearby farmer and you can start preparing dinner. This sounds like an advert for starting a big and happy family doesn’t? I only want to say: skip Port Zélande and other massive resorts and start relaxing in a cool environment. 

From 99 euro. Check out: www.boerderijlodges.nl
