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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
