Off to Amsterdam…

Tomorrow afternoon, I’m flying to Amsterdam to attend the Meet The Blogger conference (see this little interview they kindly did with me) so I may be catching up with a few of you on Saturday.
I really enjoyed last year’s trip because it was very inspiring on many levels…I got to meet lots of interesting & inspiring women who I have stayed in touch with since then (merci Twitter and Facebook), Holly was launching her first book Decorate which we know now, became a HUGE success and I got to see a fair amount of inspiring places and shops thanks to Desiree from Vosges Paris. Of course, I came back with a few souvenirs including this very heavy but beautiful wooden chopping board and a white stool, that British Airways almost prevented from taking on board.
I love Amsterdam. I think it is a very inspiring, creative city and I can’t wait to immerse myself in the Dutch way of life for the next three days, sharing creative ideas with Desiree, reading her old copies of VT Wonen and eating her homemade raviolis.
This year, I’m even more excited by it because Desiree has made some amazing changes to her home so I’ll be working from this gorgeous workspace below on Friday morning and in the afternoon, we will work together and style a few shots….A weekend in heaven, I’m telling you!

  1. Have fun in Amsterdam, and at the Meet The Blogger Conference. Please say hi to Desiree from me.

    Hope it will be inspiring and you’ll come up with new ideas.

  4. Have a fantastic weekend! Desiree’s home looked great but since the make over it’s heavenly. See ya saturday :-)

  5. Black and white theme is indeed timeless and never run out of style! Love the picture frames, especially the one with ‘creativity.’
