Sure enough the discombobulation passed, and we have settled into Amsterdam - thank you for your sweet comments. Our days have been filled with shopping, museums, visiting R's relations, touring the countryside, wandering the tiny streets and devouring copious amounts hung yoghurt with honey for breakfast every morning - yum! I hope all is well in your neck of the woods - here's a few things that have caught my eye in the past week.
Joot Books - a wonderful second-hand store stocking all kinds of art books and artworks.

Marc Mulders' oil paintings of flowers.

Soiree sandals in deep night by Flip*Flop.

Friday Next - a stylish mix of furniture, fashion and food.

Beautiful hand-made soaps and bath products from Rain.

Cole & Son's Hummingbird wallpaper - super pretty in real life.

The cafe at Felix Meritis all towering ceilings, exposed wooden features + really good coffee.

Annliz an elegant little shop located in the Jordaan district, which stocks ethical fashion and homeware, including this rather fetching Michelle Jefferson clutch.

And Property Of... has a great range men's bags, stationery and design publications.

We're off to catch a teeny tiny boat and tour the canals, then tomorrow morning we leave bright and early for Copenhagen. See you soon!

  1. loving all these beautiful finds. especially that wallpaper--gorgeous! and thank you so much for your sweet comment on my last post :) the india-ness of it all is really so overwhelming sometimes. just makes me stop and realize how unjustly lucky we are in the states--and how this imbalance of resources has to even out.

  2. Love the Netherlands, really enjoyed it when I was there 5 years ago. Looking forward to your trip to Copenhagen, a place I have never been to and would love to visit, especially LegoLand (Luke is a feverish Lego builder, can sit for hours designing and building).

  3. I'm so glad your trip is going well, even amidst the hiccups of discombobulation. Beautiful finds here, especially those floral paintings!
