Tall windows


The Dutch like their windows. Maybe because in the old days our winters were cold and dark, so we wanted to let any of the sparse sun light in as much as we could. Visitors of Amsterdam often marvel over the huge tall windows that can be found in canal homes. And with the Dutch not liking closed curtains, they often offer true Home Voyeurs wonderful peaks into what’s behind those windows! It saves on bills too as the warmth of the sun heats up a room pretty fast with large windows. Our own home has three large windows facing the street, each over 7 feet tall, but we live on the 2nd floor. However, I have shown my home here enough I think. So here some other examples to feast your eyes on. Not necessarily Dutch by the way.

Inspiring interiors of advertising agencies around the world


From experience I know to what length advertising agencies go to attract the attention of prospects, peers and clients. Elaborate parties, treats, pressies, incentives; you name it. Crisis smisis; there’s money to be made because brands still need to be in the spotlight and are still looking for a partner in crime to spend a lot of cash with, and more importantly, on! And we all know the saying “you only get one chance to make a first impression”. Often that first impression is in the office of the agency. So it better impresses! My former colleague Paul Kramer blogs about the world of advertising on his blog Ad-aglance.com. He rounded up eight inspiring interiors of agencies around the globe. Have a look at TBWA (Tokyo), Brandbase (Amsterdam), Roorda (Amsterdam),JWT (New York), Leo Burnett (Sidney), Mother (London), Wieden & Kennedy (London)and Pullpo (Santiago) respectively.
