I am so sorry for being so quiet these days, peeps.
Things are quiet for a reason however…
No, it’s not that I am enjoying yet another holiday…
(although I have spend an awesome time on a Dutch island enjoying a festival… more on that in another post)
Nonono, I am actually working my bloody behind of to get ready for the Woonbeurs!
The Woonbeurs is the largest interior design fair in the Netherlands.
Attentive readers will know that I am opening up a shop! Now that I wrapped up the process of writing a businessplan, making up moodboards and having delicious lunches with inspirators, it is time to get things going!
At this moment all the focus will be on finding a good space. For the time being you can check out the one page website just to give you a sneak peek of the feel of the concept and to give you the opportunity to subscribe to the newsletter, so you’ll be the first to hear when Urlaub will open!
Another sneak peek will be carried out at the Woonbeurs. Not only will Urlaub be selling lots of products (hence the hard labour!), you will also find me and some fun colleagues in live action: screenprinting and teaching cool workshops.
Now… for the word Urlaub…
Urlaub means holiday*!
To me the core of being on holiday is enjoying little things everyday, feeling excited, being open to new experiences.
This is exactly the kind of spirit I encounter in being an illustrator and in working together with other creatives.
And, this is also the feeling I want to transfer to all of you, the Urlaub customers!
You will hear all about it in the near future… (*mysterious music in the background*)
Check the website here. Via the website you can subscribe to our newsletter. Urlaub will inform you about our search for a space and the eventual opening. Fingers crossed for a permanent offline residence!
You can also check Urlaub out on Twitter and Facebook.
Or, just come to The Woonbeurs!
