As I've written here before, Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities, and I'll take any excuse to go there. Now I have two! We are planning the next blog tour there in October, and the new Volkshotel
just opened, which I'm curious to see!
Located in a building formerly used as a newspaper headquarters, the interiors remind me a lot of the Michelberger in Berlin, but with the building's history showing in the details in between the raw materials such as concrete and plywood. And this hotel also has a rooftop terrace, complete with sauna and hot tubs, so definitely looking forward to trying that out! The Volkshotel claims to be a hotel for everyone, welcoming punk rockers, single moms, stockbrokers and poets, dandies and dishwashers, and with their opening offer of €69/room throughout July, I believe almost anyone could afford it too.
Sorry for disappearing on you, it wasn't planned, but I desperately needed a break. I'm back now though, with lots of things to share! I'll start with this image of a bed canopy created in a new and inventive way. I like that it's not as romantic as a traditional canopy, more haphazard and lazy, for all of us who like their interiors a bit more relaxed.
I love spaces for creativity, be it a nook in the living room, a big artist studio or an old garden shed, any place that gives room for being creative, and where one can leave everything out between sessions, is great in my book! This room here with plenty of storage, great light and a floor that doesn't look too precious, seems like the perfect spot.
The image is part of a series
in Dutch magazine VT Wonen, and the theme is living with children, so if you'd like some stylish inspiration for that, do check it out here
