Can you believe our week of travel is coming to an end? I thought we should end on a relaxing note, and the Blooming Hotel is the perfect choice. You will see why in just a moment. Thank you for taking the time to “vacation” with us this week. I know my guest authors have put much time and energy into their lovely write-ups this week. I’m sure they would love to hear from you again, so please leave them some love here, or on their own blogs. I have included all of their links below their posts, so you will have no trouble finding them! Have a great weekend, see you next week!
My name is Wendy, I’m a photographer, stylist, blogger, mother of two and the owner of beeldSTEIL and The Scandinavian Side Of Life. I live in a 30′s house in a small town in the middle of The Netherlands. I started beeldSTEIL two years ago, in 2010. On this blog I collect and share my inspiration, photos, founds and projects.
Early 2012 I started my second blog: The Scandinavian Side Of Life on tumblr. It’s an online pinboard about Scandinavian art, (interior) design, travel and photography.
Blogging represents much of what I like: photography, styling, visual art, graphic and interior design.
Once a year my family and I visit our favorite Dutch hotel: Blooming. The hotel is located in the dunes and within walking distance from the artistic village of Bergen (Northern Netherlands).
I love the relaxed and creative atmosphere of the hotel. A place where I feel right at home. The hotel is filled with modern interior design from well known (Dutch) designers. The rooms are equipped with comfortable big beds with Coco-Mat mattress, sturdy bunk beds for the kids and a pile of inspirational magazines. Sometimes it’s difficult to get out of bed and leave the room!
During the day we walk through the dunes, along the seaside or visit Bergen. This friendly village is the home base of many artists. A mobile Art Route leads you to the historical places, buildings and galleries. Bergen is also a good place for shopping and dining. We can’t go home without a visit to the Sissy Boy Beach Pavilion & Store and a home-made wood oven pizza from Fabbrica.
In the lobby of the hotel is a small design shop. Everytime we leave the hotel I buy a small ‘Blooming souvenir’. As a reminder of another nice visit.
In short, Blooming is a great place to relax, clear my head and create new ideas.
