EAT | DRINK | SHOP | THINK at Hotel Droog A’dam

This spring we got the chance to enjoy a lovely weekend at Hotel Droog, Amsterdam.
A little designheaven in the midst of Amsterdam with a stunning view over the rooftops of Amsterdam, fully equiped with a little kitchen, bedroom, livingspace, all totally filled with beautiful Dutch design. The hotel is part of a multi-space location that opened its’ doors in 2012 and has become the destination for a drink and a bite in the beautiful cafe, to do some exclusive shopping in the store filled with wonderful brands, or to be inspired by exhibitions in the courtyard and finish the day with a stroll through the fairytale garden. A perfect place for a dreamy weekend in Amsterdam!

LIVE YOUR DREAM

On one of the first days of this brand new year 2017 filled with blank pages, i like to share a dreamjob i was lucky to work on by the end of last year. A collaboration with Little Creative Factory, a wonderful childrenswear brand from Barcelona, Spain. Just as last summer we were asked to shoot images of their gorgeous wintercollection. This brand is all about making dreams come true, so with a grateful heart we styled and shot these images.

‘MY FAVORITE FLOWER’

FOR THE NEW ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN OF BLOEMENBUREAU HOLLAND

Last week we were asked to collaborate and shoot an image for a new advertising campaign for Bloemenbureau Holland, called #lievelingsbloem or ‘My favorite flower’. Since nature and flowers are one of our biggest inspirations that was an absolute dreamjob to style and shoot. Lucky us, we just got a lovely gift that week after a shoot in Amsterdam, so these colchicum bulbs, one of Autumn delights’ for sure, were perfect for this occasion. Not only because of their promising beauty, but also as a reminder that sometimes on the least expected moments in life you’re fortunate enough to meet people that give you wings…

Summer eve wanderings…

Looking back on June, one of my favorite months of the year, as a beautiful month filled with new adventures and wanderings. Not only in my garden, with the arrival of the beautiful roses with their divine scent and enchanting names as ‘Nina Renaissance’ and ‘Ghislaine de Feligonde’, but also with a wonderful evening wandering through an empty concerthall in Amsterdam. We got the opportunity with 20 other Instagrammers to visit this grand historical building which houses 128 years of classical music history. We got to see the backstage rooms where the conductor has his final moments before entering the personal elevator leading him to the big stage of the main hall and all the musicians of the orchestra rehears with their violin, cello and piano before playing their part of the symphony…

A PILLOW OF DREAMS…

At this moment, late Spring is showing her beauty in all ways possible. With one of Springs’ most delightful flowers ever, and my absolute favorites, white peonies. Can’t get over their delicate layers of loveliness. They inspire me in so many ways, with their soft color, lushy blossoms and gentle scent. I made a few images to capture the memories attached. For a pillow of dreams for days to come…

A PILLOW OF DREAMS…

KEEP ON DREAMING…

Sometimes you come across a brand that touches your heart and in case of ‘Little creative factory’ that was exactly what happened. A wonderful childrenswear brand designed by Cristina Fernandez based in Barcelona, Spain. Collections characterised by the beauty of simplicity. Experimental shapes and attention to detail are present in all of her designs, under the banner of ‘less is more’. With nurture and comfort in mind, their clothes are made of natural and hard-wearing fabrics that come from the earth, such as cottons and linens. Textiles that reflect their roots, their very origin, whilst maintaining the sophistication and delicacy that marks the pure beauty of their clothes. All these unique pieces are produced in the heart of Barcelona, always following the philosophy of ‘slow manufacture’, ‘0km’ and ‘less is more’. Always conscientious of the need to work towards building a better world for our small people.

So imagine my joy when i was asked by Cristina to style and shoot images of her new spring/summer 2016 collection. Thank you so much Cristina for this wonderful opportunity. This collaboration is proof that sometimes ideas are not only dreams. On occasion it comes to pass that dreams become reality…
