A visit to the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (less than 10 minutes walk from my house..so nice) is reopened after almost 8 years (!) of renovations. Beautiful building, exciting exhibitions. In the ground floor I got completely excited from the exhibition and the display about Dutch design. In one of the rooms were lots of hidden articles in big drawers full of wonderful, inspiring objects – jewellery, toys, graphic,furniture, textile, … In the Second floor, contemporary art- again- great exhibitions. All together it was worth waiting for. Take your time there -its big! and one warning: stay away from the restaurant/cafe (over priced,bad service).

Raak Amsterdam 2012

Yesterday evening I went to a fashion show of “Raak Amsterdam” in the westergasfabriek in Amsterdam with (and thanks to) my dear friend Godelinde. And what a great time we had! lovely space, beautiful people all around and more beautiful people around. Nice music, cloth, colors- a real treat for a girly night out. Although it’s not my style, I enjoyed it very much. Sorry for very poor photos. I discovered that its very difficult to take a decent photo when the subject of the photo keeps moving…;-) * You will have no problem to recognize the photos that I’ve taken, the good ones are from here and here.
