A creative guide to Amsterdam Part 2


Bon Bon Boutique

On thursday I wrote about my weekend with my friend Clara. We’ve spent some time in the city of Amsterdam to look for creative shops. Remember my post about the creative guide to Amsterdam part 1? I thought this would be a nice way to add some shops to the guide. This time it is all about lovely postcards, posters and other decorative ideas. I was mostly impressed by all the cute illustrations.

My two favorite shops from my project Amsterdam are Bon Bon Boutique and Hear Hear.

The Bon Bon Boutique is run by a young woman called Bonne van der Ree. The store is located in Rosmarijnsteeg 12, close to the Nine Streets. Actually, it is a jewelry store with hand-made glamour by Bonne. However, I discovered that she also sells some beautiful postcards and posters created by designers. On her website there is a hand-picked collection of illustrators and designers presenting their work in Bonne’s store. I especially liked the birdies from Maartje van den Noort. They will look amazing in different kinds of frames.

Another designer is Spanish girl Veronica de Arriba from Depeapa designing illustrations on objects. Isn’t the Panda lovely? She also has an etsy shop worth to have a look if you like animalistic and geometric illustrations.

Other favorites of mine were Audrey Jeanne and Liekeland. Both have lovely illustrations printed on postcards and posters.

Hear Hear is a ‘tiny two story shop in Amsterdam’ owned by Samuel Dirksz and Rena Noordermeer. It is located in Heisteeg 8. On their Pinterest channel I found some nice illustrations.

There are many more that I would all love to include with pictures. I included a list of more lovely designers so you can have a look yourself and decide what designer you love the most.
