INK hotel and Pressroom restaurant | Dam area



INK Hotel Amsterdam at Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 67 is the latest contemporary lifestyle hotel that opened it's doors downtown. Located in the former headquarters of the Dutch newspaper De Tijd, the hotel took it's name from this inspiring place where stories were created, written and finally pressed in INK. Themes such as ‘Stories, Ink & Time’ play a big role in the new story of INK Hotel Amsterdam and have been of great influence in the unconventional choices for interior. 

The interior
For the concept and interior the hotel worked closely with the renowned architects at Concrete Amsterdam. Concrete found inspiration in the history of the building and former printing house De Tijd. From the entrance to the rooms and facilities, everything resonates the rich history of the building and tells its own story.

The entrance  has a street -like reception with high bar tables and ‘check-in-tablets’ and on the beautiful patio gives an instant garden feeling. Exclusively for the INK Hotel Amsterdam, artist Jan Rothuizen designed an atlas drawing of Amsterdam. These chalkboard-like paintings on the walls of the 149 rooms present the city of Amsterdam and tell the amusing story of the hotel and its surrounding area.

Pressroom bar and restaurant
The contemporary interior of bar and restaurant PRESSROOM is an ode to the former printing house; traditional typewriters, glass ink bottles and large rolls of printing paper. With surprising breakfast recipes, lunch platters and free bar bites during the aperitivo, to surprising and colourful dishes at dinner and high-end cocktails until late at night PRESSROOM is the ultimate place to wake up and stay awake.

Laundry Industry Flagshipstore | Spui area

I have always loved Dutch fashion label Laundry Industrie because of their strong black and white appearance and often popped in at their former store at Rokin. They recently opened a 550 sqm flagship store in the former society and landmark building 'Concordia' on Sint Luciënsteeg 18. A great spot almost, next to the Zara on high-street 'Kalverstraat' and 'Nieuwezijds voorburgwal' from where it's a 5 minute walk to the nine streets.

With this new store Laundry Industry offers a new shopping experience from fashion to selected items for your home and other iconic pieces, I fell in love with the tables made out of steal and oak. The building has been renovated beautifully and as an Amsterdammer I love the fact that from wherever you are in the shop the large windows allow you to look outside during shopping, giving you a sneak peek of the entrance of the 'Amsterdam museum' and the stained glass windows of the building across the street.

On the ground floor you find the mens department and a small coffee bar is situated in the corner of the iconic building that 
carries a large history and was used as headquarters just after the 2nd world war to one of Holland's famous newspapers de Volkskrant. Upstairs you will find the Laundry Industry collection for women and a channel-ish corner with a beautiful stylish lady at the back. As an interior lover I was surprised by their not so average home and deco collection consisting of pieces in concrete, steal and glass.

Circle of Trust Conceptstore & Denim brand | Pijp area


Just around the corner from Albert Cuypstraat Circle of Trust opened their first Concept store, one of the designers of FoA tipped me about this new store. I passed by this narrow part of the street very often and coming back, I loved the new shop windows with a mix of fashion furniture.
Founded in 2005 Circle of trust is mainly know as a denim label for men, women and kids. In the 240m2 concept store you will find a mix of lifestyle, vintage and contemporary furniture and the complete selection of fashion Circle of Trust has to offer. I found a super cool present to bring home!
