Since I’ve opened my shop on Etsy, I’ve become obsessed with browsing through all the awesome products people make by hand. I want to fill my house up with etsy art, drink out of etsy mugs, wear vintage etsy boots, I’ve gone into insane-o etsy land. Here’s an Amsterdam inspired treasury list I made to highlight works that reflect this pretty city. Enjoy!

After months of ruminating, my Etsy store has finally opened! I only have four holiday greeting cards at the moment but I plan to have many more prints, ceramics, and photography in 2012. Here’s my first attempt at designing greeting cards!

Odd Designs

I recently visited a cool interior design shop that’s tucked away in the residential area of the Baarsjes called Store Without A Home. Its a fun semi permanent pop-up shop that is also partly a design gallery. Young designers are able to showcase their work as well as established international labels. I particularly love the drawing below by Manja van der Storm and all the fun fabrics by Marimekko. The store is located on Cabotstraat 1.

YEAH DATS RIGHT. I’m living it up Dutch style on a houseboat underneath a windmill. Definitely moved on up from my old shipping container home.

Living in the Thirties

Posted: July 16th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Design, photography | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

Check out this house I had to photograph for work last month. This lady is obsessed with the 1930s era and transformed her house completely into a vintage home. She has an old thirties oven, a rotary phone,  and even the newspaper next to her lazy chair is from the last century. It felt more like walking into a Dutch oldies film set than a real life home. You can read the full story by Marieke Verhoeven here.

Augmented Reality in Rembrandtplein

Posted: April 30th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Design, film | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

Here is a really interesting augmented reality video displayed in the rembrandtplein.

There’s a problem in The Netherlands that public service employees face aggression and violence, and witnesses do nothing to help or stop the situation. This PSA holds a mirror up to the people on the street, showing them onscreen (as people do love to look at themselves), but with a little help of a scene previously filmed against bluescreen background, they find that they are now in a scene where paramedics face violence, and they play the part of the onlookers who don’t intervene when the paramedics need help.
