A few months ago, Museum Voorlinden opened its doors. It’s a privately-owned museum for modern and contemporary art in Wassenaar (NL) that showcases the art collection of collector and industrial Joop van Caldenborgh – apparently the biggest privately owned one of the country. Parts of it are permanently on display (think of the Couple under Read more…

Maria (II)

Last time I saw Maria, in October 2014, she was still working underground. Literally, since her workshop was then in a basement (a cosy one, nothing but good things about the basement). Meanwhile things have changed. You could say that two babies have been born: one is mine (Oscar), the other Maria’s new, overground workshop which Read more…

Oh Johanna, you pretty Johanna. As the ‘new’ addition to The Village family, it was time I paid her a proper visit at last [I already did this months ago, but in between then and now was a biiiig postless zooooone I have only just escaped from, which is why these photos are only finding their way Read more…

An Apple A Day…. can...

There’s so much to see and do at An Apple A Day. Play, learn, create, eat, drink, buy – everything is possible in this lovely kids concept store in my hometown Utrecht. In the front there are coffee and cake, then come the toys, books and most adorable children’s clothing, and in the back a special space has Read more…

Dries van Noten

When in Antwerp, don’t forget to visit the Dries van Noten exhibition ‘Inspiration’ in the MoMu Fashion Museum. It’s the very first time the fashion designer discloses his oeuvre in any exhibition and reveals the singularity of his creative process, illustrated with numerous sources of inspiration. Worth a visit!

I Read You

Last weekend we were in Berlin (no kids involved) (thank you parents-in-law)! Unfortunately the usual suspects – our dear friends Lasse & Shino – weren’t there this time, but we had a great time with Lot & Pim (Daan’s sister + her boyfriend, who temporarily live in Berlin) and some good restaurants, shops, cycling and Read more…

Another highlight of our Berlin visit was the shop of Wolfen, a Berlin based fashion brand for both men and women. Its collection is quite classical, but so distinguishing when it comes to detail, quality and color use (ah those colors!!). The store is simple but beautiful and you instantly want to feel all the clothes Read more…

Rotterdam Part 2

Rotterdam… There was this place called heaven where they sold a funny type of bag (do you know it?  It’s this brand called Susan Bijl. It’s so cool, you should really check it out. Oh wait, I might have mentioned it before on the blog…. not sure… ;)), but of course there was more! Highlights: Read more…

Is this heaven?

After the Antwerp afternoon with my friend Josja, I knew it was time to take it one step further: spending a day in Rotterdam, alone. I like Rotterdam, I like (read: need) being on myself every now and then and why not take advantage of the fact that my baby had his first full day Read more…

    From the coffee at Vitrin to the familiar vitrines at Wouters & Hendrix’ new shop, Antwerp sure did its best when visiting during the last weeks of my maternity leave* (after the obligatory pumping at the parking – yes, you moms know what I’m talking about – I did think I deserved it though).
