Last weekend I went to The Hague for the Designkwartier Festival. The Petite Passport Guides were available at Tas-ka’s pop up book store during the festival and of course I wanted to see more shops and work of designers. I’m a big fan of the lamps of Studio Snowpuppe and they invited me and my mother to their studio and let us make a Chestnut lamp by ourselves. Such a lovely afternoon! It’s so cool to see how they, Kenneth and Nellianna of Studio Snowpuppe, started with the idea of an foldable lamp made from paper on their couch when they were both out of jobs and now their lamps are being sold throughout the world. After this workshop we went to MaMaKelly for dinner and after that we’ve checked in to the chic Hotel des Indes.
On Saturday we went to the Designkwartier Festival, had a quick lunch at de Pastakantine (now closed) and went to Cafe Franklin for dinner. And on Sunday we’ve started the day with a brunch at the beach, at Barbarossa which was delicious! Because my mother loves art and I’ve never been to the Gemeentemuseum we went to the exhibition of Klimt vs Schiele and got a chance to see the world-famous painting called Judith of Gustav Klimt in real life. We ended our weekend in style with a high tea at Hotel des Indes. I love The Hague. A chic city with a lot of cultural happenings and of course the proximity of the beach makes it really special! Would highly recommend it for a weekend trip in The Netherlands.
Let’s see what caught my eye!
