shuttered

We're back home from our whirlwind trip, but there are more things I want to share from the Netherlands, so I'm going to keep posting things over the next few days.

One of the reasons I love the Lloyd Hotel is because of all the design eye candy in the interiors. Not just the spaces, but the objects as well.

This Droog rag chair is just hanging out in a hallway and it's a lot more fun to see it there than it is to see it at Moss with a big ole "do not touch sign on it". (I understand why they don't want you to touch it- that's a $5,500 pile of rags- but it's still a lot less fun.)

But better than getting to touch the things I have seen before, is seeing new things. One thing that I especially liked were these felt window treatments.

They are backed with a stiff material (I'm not sure what) and hinged like shutters.

And they are lovely.

What a fantastic place! It looks like there must have been so many interesting elements to take in. And I can't wait to read more about your Netherlands trip (and dig into your older posts to see why you were on the whirlwind trip in the first place!)

Abigail, how did I not know you had a blog until now?! I found out through your comment on Decor8. I'm excited to catch up and read everything you've written. And I can't believe i was just home in MI only 6 weeks ago. Cheers from Turkey!
