As a garden and art lover I am always on the lookout for inspiring places to visit. While in Amsterdam a short while ago, we decided to visit the Museum van Loon.
The Museum van Loon is situated in the heart of Amsterdam,along one of the canals. The house itself dates back to the 17th century and is beautifully decorated. Although it has touches of more modern times, it still evokes the splendour of the golden age. I especially liked the blue rooms. In which I found the light shining through the high windows amazing.
The garden is magnificent. It is laid out in formal style with low hedges and roses in between and looks very impressive with the façade of the coach house behind it. The coach house, which you can see on my first four photo's, was only recently purchased. Renovation is still going on, but you can already see how beautiful it will look once finished.
This weekend the weather in Holland is too good to stay inside. I am off to my garden to clean up the remnants of a candle light supper. I will show you some photo's soon. Have a good time!
