Museum Van Loon - an amsterdam must see

my favorite room.  you can't see much because they do not allow flash but this opens up to their incredible garden and the whole room is shades of turq.

this parisian turq clock.  jb had to claw me away from her.  

a beautiful kitchen with lots of blue accents

more kitchen

gorgeous

anyone who decorates with peacocks is my hero

molding. everywhere!

those stairs!

the rose garden

a bedspread.
"be not afraid.
be patient."

more bedspread- on the other twin.
"can i do anything for you? do you know love? do you know beauty? can you transport yourself easily? can you go to Russia easily?"


oh hey goodlooking.


Lovely Textures and patterns.  dripping from this home.

hanging out in the Van Loon's rose garden.

The Van Loon's were a wealthy dutch family who preserved their home and created a museum out of it. it has take my breath away beauty.  when you love antiques, rose gardens, and patterns- you don't have a chance.  you will fall in love.

  1. Just be sure you only decorate with peacocks and don't actually own a live one. My sister lived on some property where the owners had one once and it sounds like a dying cat when it screeches... which is generally at about 5am.
