GOD SAVE THE KING!

Max

At the coronation

It’s been a year since our King Willem-Alexander took up his royal duties and I, for one, think he and his wife, the stunningly photogenic Queen Maxima, are doing a pretty great job. I have to admit that I gravitate towards pictures of our new queen, whose wardrobe absolutely kills me and who has enough charisma to fill a football stadium, but as a couple I believe they’ve really come into their own.

PROPS TO PISELLI PROJECTS

PiselliLast October I dedicated a post to my dear friend Emilie Kroner, who was making headway with her fabulous white ceramics animal collection by Piselli Projects. The collection consists of all-white table decoration such as tureens, napkin holders and carafes in the form of wild life. My personal favorite are the oversized hippo and rhino oil and vinegar dispensers! The other day, Emilie called up with the most exciting piece of news. Continue reading

DESIGN CRUSH: NATE BERKUS

Nate Berkus

Nate Berkus

My crush on Nate Berkus harks back to the days when Oprah Winfrey used to dominate day-time television and first introduced the gorgeous, kind and very talented interior designer and TV-presenter to the world. Many women swooned, myself included. Bad news for us, Nate is openly gay. We just loved him even more. Continue reading

INSPIRATIONAL PEOPLE WE LOVE: NATASJA SADI

DSC_0104Designer Natasja Sadi represents old-school glamour and style, in the same vein as taste-maker extraordinaire Carolyne Roehm. She always looks perfectly put together, as does her home, and turns even the most mundane of events into something special. Off-days do not appear to exist in her vocabulary, yet she carries it all off with such aplomb that I often wonder why I can’t do the same (the easy answer: I think I’m too lazy!). I like to think of Natasja as Holland’s answer to Martha Stewart. Continue reading

STYLE CRUSH: KATE MOSS

Kate2In case you missed it, Kate Moss turned the big 4-0 this month. And my God, does that woman age well!! How is it possible that I have given up smoking, don’t drink a drop of alcohol, don’t do drugs and eat quite healthily, and I look the way I do (not fabulous, no matter how much coverup I apply) and she can live a hard-partying, rockstar lifestyle for more than half her life and look as fabulous as she does? It blows my mind! Continue reading

HAPPY IN AMSTERDAM

Well, the weekend is finally upon us and that’s reason enough for celebration. You have to check out this video I came across, which put a great, big grin on my tired face! Did you know that women in Holland are supposed to be the happiest in the world? I certainly didn’t, especially not after the week I’ve been having!! Love the kids, but sometimes they are just too much! But all is well with the world after I saw this video to the perfect beat of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”.

Get your groove on while you watch this!
