Gevonden op Marktplaats recap #2, Rembrandt Reality, and more. Lots more.

Gevonden op Marktplaats recap #2, Rembrandt Reality, and more. Lots more.

It’s Sunday morning, 7AM. You’re probably sleeping, and rightfully so! I woke up at the crack of dawn and decided to just get out of bed and do some spontaneous blogging. Probably not the wisest of decisions because I have a zillion other things I really should be doing instead, but there you have it. I have a recap of my favorite ... Read More »

Who run the world? Girls.

Who run the world? Girls.

Seriously, where would the world be without women? Nowhere, I tell you. Nowhere! There should be more women in politics, at the top of the corporate ladder – and Goddess knows America could use one at the White House. In honor of the fairer sex (or is that sexist to say now?), I bring you a selection of amazing girls ... Read More »

All About ‘Todo Sobre Mi Madre’

All About ‘Todo Sobre Mi Madre’

Which figure in film history was a true revolutionary who boldly went where no one had gone before? ¡Pedro Almodóvar, of course! After all, it was this film director who started a genuine sociocultural movement, the Movida Madrileña, after the death of Franco. Anything and everything was possible – and it was in that hedonistic Zeitgeist that Almodóvar became the ... Read More »

Woody Allen’s Interiors – It’s Just a Vase I’m Going Through

Woody Allen’s Interiors – It’s Just a Vase I’m Going Through

Let’s face it, the biggest cause of divorce is marriage. In Woody Allen’s Interiors, the stately Manhattanite of advanced style Eve is slowly abandoned by her husband. To process this, she throws herself into improving her impeccable greige interior – and that of her children. And who in their right mind can blame her? Don’t we all feel the need ... Read More »

Nope. I am not writing about the Carnaval dos Caretos today.

Nope. I am not writing about the Carnaval dos Caretos today.

Nothing to see here today, folks. Just move along! Because today, I am not sharing with you where you can celebrate the best carnival in all of Europe. I would never, ever reveal that all you have to do is fly to Porto and then drive a few hours to Portugal’s far northeastern corner. In fact, I would strongly advise you against ... Read More »

I went color hunting in Afurada and all I got was ignored

I went color hunting in Afurada and all I got was ignored

Ah yes, Afurada! With your soft pastels and bright than bright colors! And your intimidating looking fisherman’s wives! You enticed me when I was in Portugal last spring and someone I met suggested I go an visit your shores. You were supposed to be beautiful and exotic and I couldn’t wait to check out the reportedly inspiring color combinations that were ... Read More »

La Cage Aux Folles – License to frill

La Cage Aux Folles – License to frill

A lesser known, but oh so sweet soundtrack by Ennio Morricone. A groundbreaking story – well, for the Seventies at least. And two heartwarming older queens living together in the cosiest interior of the entire Côte d’Azur. All those elements combined make La Cage Aux Folles parts I and II the perfect place to start a new column I’m writing ... Read More »

Studio Job Godiva Valentine’s Day giftboxes

Studio Job Godiva Valentine’s Day giftboxes

I am a forty-five year old man who wants heart-shaped designer pralines for Valentine’s Day. I reached this horrifying conclusion on a crowded 7:55 AM commuter train between Rotterdam and Amsterdam this morning – the place I do most of my blogging. However, once you’ve seen these special Studio Job Godiva Valentine’s Day giftboxes and their deliciously sweet Japanese TV ... Read More »

Traffic be damned- I’m feeling New Sensations!

Traffic be damned- I’m feeling New Sensations!

It’s been over two weeks since I last updated Interiorator.com. And you know what? I thoroughly enjoyed my extended absence online. Didn’t plan it, didn’t work ahead. So sue me – a blogger needs a break from time to time. That being said, I’m glad to be back online and I promise you, this is going to be the best ... Read More »

Aloha Bar at Tropicana Rotterdam

Aloha Bar at Tropicana Rotterdam

It’s Saturday morning – which is usually the time I sit down and update an old blogpost. This time around, I thought I’d go back to last September’s blogpost about the Aloha Bar in Rotterdam, which is situated in – believe it or not – an abandoned subtropical swimming paradise. They’re opening again this weekend with an updated decor and ... Read More »

This young Turk ran into Rod Stewart at Les Puces de Saint-Ouen

This young Turk ran into Rod Stewart at Les Puces de Saint-Ouen

Even the celebrity visitors are vintage at Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, the world’s biggest antiques market in Paris. Take Rod Stewart, for example. I ran into him when I was taking pictures for this week’s Paris Special on Interiorator. I had my camera at the ready when he walked right by me, but out of the utmost respect for Rod’s ...

Les Deux Garçons taxidermied bird statues

Les Deux Garçons taxidermied bird statues

It’s Saturday morning and I’m still living it up in Paris! I’ll tell you all about it next week – for now, let’s revisit a blogpost I wrote last year about taxidermy artists Les Deux Garçons!  Holy MOLY! Talk about shock value! I have to admit, I don’t know what to make of the sculptures by Dutch artists Les Deux Garcons. I know I’m ... Read More »

Êtes-vous open, mysterious vintage perfume store?

Êtes-vous open, mysterious vintage perfume store?

I have loved abandoned buildings ever since I saw the famous Marchand & Meffre pictures of the ruins of Detroit. In fact, I even spent a day in the Motor City on my honeymoon and it was a fascinating experience to say the least. On our side of the Atlantic we have some pretty amazing ruins porn as well, witness ... Read More »

With Christmas now officially behind us, it’s time to start thinking of next summer. And what better way to get in the mood than with these vintage home movies by Hollywood movie star Roddy McDowall? It’s a who’s who of Sixties Hollywood with movie stars like Jane Fonda, Julie Andrews, Rock Hudson, Paul Newman, Natalie Wood and Lauren Bacall hanging out ...

I’m loving this Drone Survival Guide for all the wrong reasons

I’m loving this Drone Survival Guide for all the wrong reasons

The use of drones is one of the most controversial issues of our time. They fascinate us, they scare us, they help us fight terrorism – although I’m not so sure about that last one. This new Drone Survival Guide poster will help you identify the most common drones and tell you how you can hide from them. It’s a ... Read More »

Tropicana Rotterdam Revisited

Tropicana Rotterdam Revisited

It’s ruins porn with a tropical twist – last weekend I snuck into the abandoned Tropicana covered swimming pool in Rotterdam (please don’t tell anyone, okay?). What was once a subtropical swimming paradise and the favorite day out for practically anyone who grew up in the city is now reduced to empty swimming pools, dead plants and rust. I can’t ...

Elaine Gignilliat Plates and Prints

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And no, I’m not talking about Christmas. It’s the end of August and all the major interior design magazines are releasing their September issues. I’m reading them all digitally nowadays and so this is what my inbox has been looking like this week: “Votre magazine Côté Paris — Aout – Septembre 2013 ... Read More »

Voulez vous? Abba – The Museum

Voulez vous? Abba – The Museum

Many, many years ago I had a booze fueled late night discussion with a good friend over which group had the most impact on music history. My friend was convinced it was the Beatles and little homosexual me could only think of one alternative: ABBA! I’m extremely please that 2013 is finally, FINALLY proving me right. You see, ABBA have ... Read More »
