Ok. I won't say anything about the weather in the Netherlands today... Let's talk about some better things like lovely spring pintrends. I want to show you the misty greens today. Beautiful colour that goes SUPERB with brights. Every scroll and then on Pinterest I see this colour popping up.

It's almost weekend ( yes!) and only one week left before it's Easter time! Maybe you have some space in your probably fully booked agenda's to make nice decoration for the easter days. Just an idea: DO IT TOGETHER instead of yourself. Much more fun and cosy! I loved these ideas. Want to see more fun ideas? Visit my Pinterest Easter board :)

Last week I had a lovely day with Hellen van Berkel, a very talented textile designer and friend ( we worked together for HEMA). She's the owner of Heartmade Prints; a collection of silk scarves and beautiful cushions. Hellen has a very good sense for colours and patterns. She really can combine things so well. I always love to visit her! The surroundings are beautiful, calm and relaxed comparing to Amsterdam and her house is sooooo inspiring and really made by heart. Just perfect.

Some of you asked me if I could write down a little Sjoesjoe shopping tour through Amsterdam. What would Sjoesjoe do for the weekend? Let's say you come by train... so the starting point is Central Station and, of course, you have a bike! Have fun!
1. Damrak: Options ( only this store and then go away as quick as you can)
3. Noordermarkt: market / Winkel 43 ( BEST apple pie)
4. Marnixstraat: Rare bird
5. 9 Straatjes: just walk, shop and see, great stores!
6. Rokin: De laatste kruimel ( Lunch)
7. Utrechtsestraat: Jan / Maison NL
Amsterdam, but my ultimate favourite)
** Flea market: Ijhallen
** Food market: Pure markt

Yesterday evening I, don't ask me why... I could have done a million other lovely things, really wanted to decorate eggs. So I did. It was fun and easy to do. With some stickers and markers you can do some nice things for Easter :) Do you like it?

You can find Sjoesjoe on Instagram too! Follow me ( just like Decor8!!! I'm not kidding) if you're wondering what else I'm doing besides writing on a blog. I show you the nicest places, restaurants, cakes, and things to do. Like yesterday, I went to the Noordermarkt ( even though it was freezing cold, I had to go!) I always find lovely treasures!
PS I bought the blue butterfly... couldn't resist it!

I admire H&M for their always refreshing new concepts. They really do know how to be a fashionable and inspiring brand! So I was happy to read about their new store concept: & Other Stories. A fashion brand offering women a wide range of shoes, bags, accessories, beauty and ready-to-wear to create their personal style, or story. It's about bringing everything she can wear into one place, focusing on the whole look. Quite modern, but nice!

Thank you for your kind responses on my Royal Ceramics!! Today something totally different. Let's dive into some spring colour trends ( we just ignore that there will be some snow at the end of the week....). I can tell you one thing for sure... it's all about soft and light tones! Combined together, with every now and then a little brighter colour next to it. Living and fashion, both plunged into a marshmallow bath.
