Home / Vintage knick knacks

I love everything home decor! I can spend hours on the internet just looking at beautiful homes and inspirational photos. So I liked the idea of shooting some home photos myself. So I did =) Over the next few weeks I plan on posting more blogposts like this one. Do you like that idea?

ps. just heard that our trip to Germany got cancelled, such a bummer.

Photography / Double exposure

I've read some articles about double exposure and as my camera doesn't have that function, I headed over to Photoshop to do some experimenting. This is what happened. I really like the colours and how the branches at the top kind of look like the hair. I definitelly want to experiment with this some more in the near future.

Photography / Do you want it al

I always like reading the the information next to the paintings.

The Singel Bridge at the Paleisstraat in Amsterdam, George Hendrik Breitner, 1896

'Breitner often took photographs to prepare his paint-ings, and several such studies are known for this work. The way in which the woman walks straight towards us and the image is cropped strikes one as distinctly photographic. Breitner initially depicted the woman as a maid, but after a negative review, the gallery representing him felt it would be better if he made her into an elegant lady.'

Forest Scene, Barend Cornelis Koekkoek, 1848

'Of all Dutch landscape painters, Koekkoek is perhaps the most Romantic. He specialized in splendid panora-mas of the valley of the Rhine and forest scenes with majestic trees, which at the time were called ‘Wodan’s Oaks’ (Wodan being the Dutch name for Odin, the major god in Norse mythology). In 1834 Koekkoek settled in Cleves in Germany, over the border from Nijmegen. He found German scenery, with its hills and the Rhine, more romantic than the Dutch landscape.'

Travel / Four times London

London 2008

1. Oxford Street

Must go to! It may be touristy but it's a great place for shopping if you're looking for all the regular shops like Topshop, Primark, Forever21, New Look, Nike Town and many more.

2. Carnaby Street

Ones of my favourite places in London, Carnaby Street. There are some awesome stores like Vans, David & Goliath, the Great Frog, Muji, Monki, Liberty, Jack Wills, Brandy Melville and American Apparel. Of course you can also find a lot of lovely places to eat.Worth checking out.

3. The Liberty Bounds

It's a long time ago that I was here, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. We went to this pub after we went to the Tower of London (it's really close by). Just to have something to eat and drink. I remember it to be quit big, lots of wood, dark colours and really cosy. I definitely plan on going here again when I'm in London.

4. Notting Hill

You can find some awesome things at the market, there are great stores to browse and cute little caf├ęs to get something to drink. I can't wait to go back to London and explore this area some more.

DIY / Bottles up

Really quick, easy and simple diy. Keep your eyes open for pretty wine bottles (like these ^^)! Don't throw them away but get the label of (by putting them in the sink full of hot water) and use them as decoration in your room / home. Mine are empty right now, but you can also put flowers in them. Don't they look pretty?! =)
