mirror mirror

bathroom update bathroom update

Today's bathroom update.

Two vintage space age mirrors, one for him, one for her.

We found the first mirror by chance in a vintage shop in Rotterdam last month. I searched online for the second.
The mirrors are from an Ikea collection from 1969 and in perfect condition.

Isn't it special that after all these years they form a perfect pair in our bathroom?
I love those special interior items that make the space unique!

Wednesday 7th of February - Amsterdam

Coffee at Bar Kantoor, located in the heart of Amsterdam's Westerpark.

Lovely lunch at our friend Ank & Billie.

Afternoon walk in the Jordaan, while spring is in the air.

Inspiration and (vintage) shopping at:
Toscanini Deli Italian deli paradise.
Second hand shoop Leeelijk (a pun, because previously it was next to Moooi design)
Tableware Amsterdam, vintage and antique tableware, 40,000 plates stacked to the ceiling. We modestly bought only one Nimy plate, to supplement our tiny collection.
Polspotten, where actually the Polspotten museum and private kitchen appealed to me more than the showroom.
Mechanisch Speelgoed, we bought 4 more wind-up swimmers for Liam to play with in the bath, in the nicest old fashioned toy store ever.

Drinks at the café Twee Prinsen.

Then we went to North with the Mini for dinner. We had a starter at Euro Pizza Restaurant and for the next dishes we went to Restaurant Barracuda. Simply because we couldn't choose, because both restaurants are an experience and serve delicious food.

Cheers to friendship and fun. A Festive February day it was!
