Arnhemse Stockdagen 2016

The Arnhemse Stockdagen are here! It is one of those events were you have the best of both worlds: discounts and designer collections. From interior to fashion and from small entrepreneurs to Arnhem based designers who are well known in the Netherlands. Yesterday was the first day and within a few hours I quickly tried to cover as much ground as possible. Every year I’m truly amazed by the quality. The combination of well known stores such as Humanoid (think Acne in sale and their own collection with great discounts) and designers such as Klaas Kuiken (the vase is his design) and the

I’m not saying I’m the Dali Lama – far from, my state of enlightenment isn’t anywhere near – but I feel like I’m one step closer to what life should be about. One of the big things that

Garden renovations part 1: wish list

This year we finally FINALLY tackled something which we’ve bene postponing for years: renovating our outdoor area. First we had to get past the money draining house itself and after we finally got to see some satisfying bank accounts we’re now waving goodbye to it again and hello to a new and improved view. Ah well, the things we do. But the best part of renovating is finally here: buying de decorations. I absolutely love to slowly get an idea of what it is I want for a new space and then find the best and cheapest possible way to
