Design bloggers united dinner | Amsterdam

Last Friday I attended a dinner in Amsterdam, organised by friends who are behind Design Bloggers United and it was just perfection.

From the choice of the venue at Pistache to the catering by Lady Grey catering and the styling of our table with blue tableware from French company Pillyvuyt, everything was just perfect and I had a really great time.

I absolutely loved the venue! My first reaction when I was walked in was the same when I first spotted the glass panel in our new kitchen…WOW…so cool and airy, the kind of place you wish you could move into.

The overall feel of the room was amazing but the organisation was just ace. They had planned everything to the perfection. We had drinks from V2C Gin, a Dutch company that makes 100% organic gin and I tried the oaked gin which was very nice. I wish now, I had brought back a bottle for Steve.

I absolutely loved the soft, industrial feel of the venue and look at this fab open-plan kitchen…
One of the best thing about blogging is the friends you make.
I absolutely hate networking the way it happens in the corporate world. I can’t walk a room with my business cards and introduce myself to people I’ve never met. It bores me to death and to be honest, I’m too shy but through blogging I have met a lot of great people, I have now been friends with for years, and it was great to catch up with many of them who I had last seen in Copenhagen or Paris.
Inspiring industrial workspace
