Visiting Amsterdam {Modenus blogtour}

The other day I had the pleasure to meet up with a group of fellow interior design bloggers in Amsterdam. Modenus blogtour tour stayed in Cologne and came over to Amsterdam for one day! And I loved meeting this group with bloggers from the US and Great Britain.

We had a meet up at the college Hotel in Amsterdam where they were staying for the night and then went into town to visit several places of interest to end up at Hutspot where a small meeting with other Dutch bloggers was organised.  Here is a short photo impression of the places we visited. First stop at Droog


With a beautiful view on the roofs of Amsterdam there is also Hotel DroogWhere we had a coffee stop, with delicious macarons. The top floor of Hotel Droog is for guests. Central but quiet, the brightly-lit space, with bedroom, bathroom with separate bath and shower, living area and kitchen, provides a superb view over Amsterdam rooftops.

Next stop at the Frozen Fountain with an interesting presentation about design and the history of the shop.

At MoooiSjoerd Vroonland was waiting for us to tell about his design and answer questions. We ended our visit with a funny movie with Marcel Wanders interviewing himself. 

We ended the tour at Haarlemmerstraat for a visit at SWAH (shop without a home) and Sukha where we enjoyed the shop (and the wine) and left with a little present. Very last stop was at Hutspot to meet up with the other bloggers. It was an afternoon filled with talking, laughter and meeting new people.

Hutspot Amsterdam - New Location | Ceintuurbaan De Pijp area

Last year I wrote about Hutspot Amsterdam, where young and upcoming creative talents have the opportunity to sell their products in their own space within the shop (see: Hutspot Amsterdam) They recently re-opened the concept at their new location, Van Woustraat 4. (Abert Cuyp area) Last week I went to check it out and here is a short impression of the new shop ... pretty amazing space !

Christmas wonder world at SUKHA AMSTERDAM

Wishing you a very happy Christmas eve from under the white tree at Sukha Amsterdam. Ain't it a beautiful corner again! Sukha is truly in my top 3 of most beautiful stores in town. Being able to transform the look of the store every time into a completely new wonder world shows how strong their concept and the talent of the styling team is! Once more a big thank you to Sukha for sending me the pictures, all taken and copyright by Jeltje Janmaat.

Merry X-Mas to all of you and see you soon in Amsterdam
