Weekend Reading

  • Perhaps it’s just me but I love the feeling of my home being a cosy and warm place for me to be. Scented candles (this one is my favorite), fresh flowers, warm blankets, a little stack of my favorite magazines and the bed made up with my own sheets are all things that give me that homey feeling. One of the most important things to me is making my place a place where I actually want to be, where I feel safe and at home. That’s why I could really relate to this blog article on My Domaine.
  • I’ve had my eye on these pretty and comfy sneakers from Ugg since the moment I saw them. I think they’re perfect for Spring, don’t you?
  • I loved this article on Garance Dore’s blog about women who moved to a new city for love, work and/or spontaneity. If you’re considering to make a change in your life and need a little push, their stories might be it. I think it’s quite admirable that they open up not only about the best parts of entering a new phase in life but also about the hardest parts of moving to a new place so I can highly recommend this post.
  • Having lived as a single girl in the city for most of my life, I love this article on the difference between being single and being alone.

6 best interior shops

Lately I am trying to swap clothes for interior accessories. It’s probably the worst luck in the world to shop for home decoration before you even have your own home, right? Yes, I thought so.. Still, I love my little place in the city centre of Amsterdam which I share with two other girls and even though I am not exactly a decoration expert, that doesn’t stop my excitement. So, that’s why I’d love to share some of my favorite interior shops on my blog.

DR Wonen
This is one of the best, especially since it’s located in the Nine Streets in Amsterdam which is where you will find me most of the time during the weekends. This place always feels like home to me and I can highly recommend it. From cosy pillows and marble lamps to pretty canal house tea holders and ceramic vases, they have everything you’d wish to have in your home.

Loods5
Last weekend was actually the first time I visited this interior shop but it made a lasting impression on me. I even bought a white knitted pouf for my bedroom for a cosy look and feel. Anyone who knows me knows I have a soft spot for calm and serene rooms with lots of light colors so this is the perfect interior shop for me.

Pluk
Ok so this may not be an interior shop – I mostly come here for the tasty smoothies and banana bread – but they do have some very pretty home decorations. From marble plates (here we go again with the marble obsession) to fruit bowls, I simply love everything they have.

The Loft
When I visited the incredible Loft a few weeks ago I was blown away by the lofty space and atmosphere. I felt right at home with its combination of natural materials with soft colors and inspiring accessories. Here, you will find decorations from the most talented artists and craftsmen of the world.

JAN
This is the most stylish place to buy gifts for your loved ones. To me, it feels a bit like a Parisian pied-à-terre, not too big and not too small – and the home decorations are so inspiring and calming. It has literally everything: design interior items, soft toys for the little ones as well as candles and cook books.

Sukha
I’ve been to this place many times and always left with a little something to spoil myself. Whether it’s a ring or little flags made from lokta paper with a cotton string, I never come home empty-handed after a little trip to this interior shop.
