My dose of art

by Marlies Dekkers
As much as I have a love for fashion designers, beautiful fabrics and craftsmanship, I also have a love for spending my time visiting exhibitions and wandering through museums.

Art, architecture and the feeling of walking around in the mind of an artist – it fascinates me. In that respect I’m one spoilt, lucky lady. As I’m travelling a lot, I grab every chance to see many different works of art, making sure I get my regular dose of artistry.
Here are some of my favorite art exhibitions which are definitely worth a visit.

Coming home for xmas

by marlies|dekkers

Confession: I am a total Xmas fanatic. I LIVE for the holiday season. While my usual taste can best be described as austere and intellectual, come Christmas, I’m into kitsch. Big time. Bring on the glitter, the glühwein and the sentimental songs!
