I have shown this shop after my last trip to Brugge in August. This is a must see shop in the city! It is just THE best shop. The shop is called 'De Binnentuin' and is a treat for the eyes before you ever enter...
As you approach the shop during the holiday season, the outside is draped in green swags and pretty white lights. As with any season of the year, you really must look at all the window displays before even going indoors. This is a real joy and the windows stretch all the way around the corner of the building.
Just look at all the beautiful things they have for the festive season.....
Don't forget to click the photos so you can enlarge them and really see the details.
You are greeted in this shop by the two owners who really have a great flair for how to put things together. They make the floral arrangements you see in the photos themselves. We arrived to hear they felt it was very chaotic in the shop as they were in the middle of putting out some of the new holiday items but we found it to be so pretty as usual. Jos laughed as he says I say that also when I am in the middle of being creative with my decorating. He says it might seem chaotic but to others it looks wonderful. I guess I can now see what he means when I do the same thing.
I must admit that I went into the shop this time with a goal in mind. I bought four very pretty frames to use for some miniature portraits and was very fixated on that goal. I now look at these photos myself and think why did I not look more closely as a number of items. *Sigh*
Everywhere you look there are 'rooms' made up through the arrangement of furniture and vignettes. I could live in this shop. I did not take photos everywhere and there is just so much more to see.
I find so much inspiration of how to use the items I even already have with sometimes buying items to go along with these things. It is truly an amazing place to shop. If you are ever in Brugge, do stop by and see all the wonderful things. In the meantime, I hope you may find some holiday inspiration from the photos!
