Last weekend I had my very first bloggers meet up in Amsterdam. The meet up was at the Woonbeurs, the Dutch exhibition when it comes to homes and living. The Woonbeurs is organised by Sanoma, publisher of Dutch home magazines such as VT Wonen, 101 Woonideeen, Ariadne at Home, Eigen Huis & Interieur and More Than Classic. I once did an internship at Sanoma, I used to live in Amsterdam, I blog and love anything design related. So enough reasons to fly especially to Amsterdam to attend and it was well worth it.
After receiving our press badges in the press room (first time and I have to admit it felt pretty cool), it was time to explore the fair. What is nice about the Woonbeurs is that each magazine has a house on the fair which is designed and decorated according to their particular style. Editors in chief of magazines VT Wonen and 101 Woonideeen welcomed us in ‘their’ houses. Above you see an impression of the VT Wonen house, one of my favourites because of the industrial and funky look.
If you want to find out what Dutch design is all about, the Woonbeurs is open until October 2nd!
