Do it for the AmsterGRAM

What a time! We spent a few days in Amsterdam last week and were floored by how much culture, beauty, and fun the city has to offer. Of course, the city has a reputation for its nightlife and lax culture, but looking beyond that, there was so much inspiration around every corner. We were having so much fun, that we barely even picked up our phone to Instagram & share our experiences with our followers… which is why we thought we would update you through this quick blog post!

Here are some of our top 5 favorite things about Amsterdam:

Vincent van Gogh Museum: The not so hidden gem of the city. We spent over 3 hours here exploring and learning all about Van Gogh’s life and artistic history.

Droog: A very cool gallery/store/coffee shop/garden. If you go to Amsterdam, check it out and have some homemade ice cream!

Trend Spotting: Around every corner, there was a new pattern, substrate, or icon to see.

SkyLounge: Rooftop Bar of the Hilton to see all the ~views~ of the city.

Canals: What the city is known for…every street a picturesque moment.
