We got a tip the other day from our dear friend M. we’d like to share with you, our loyal readers. This post is for dog owners in particular. Dog lovers who want to splurge on their best friend; in the shape of clothing and/or accessories.
We discovered a wonderful view the other day. Just off one of the busiest steets in Amsterdam we saw that Spring has Sprung! A large Magnolia tree in someone’s graden and a yellow flowering bush. That’s all, have a nice day! xoxo Mimi berlin
‘The Plant Magazine’ invited photographer Frederik Vercruysse to team up with florist Mark Colle and art director Clarisse Demory to create an homage to music pop starts who passed away, in the shape of a flower bouquet. The title of this series is Music Cuts.
Music Cuts: Whitney Houston
Music Cuts: Minnie Riperton
Music Cuts: David Bowie
Besides that we love the images and flower arrangements very much; the idea itself is a won-der-ful one as well! The series was published a while ago, in June 2016 in Plant MagazineContinue reading →
Maybe more pretty than real flowers, maybe not, either way…Auch Haben!

Mimi Berlin started using Instagram (@mimiberlin_amsterdam) on a frequent basis a whiile ago. Due to that fact we forget to post the images we make ourselves on this blog. Which, to us, is a shame, since we intend to keep this blog forever and make it our own encyclopedia. The first two images are made by us, the last one is the toad chair designed by Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne. (image via jousse-entreprise.com)
People sometimes ask of us; what is it that you do Mimi Berlin? You keep posting these random images with equally random topics…. Well, we answer, we read these images. Just as important; we edit them, not with Photoshop, but we like to combine images to create new visions or ideas, or to ‘write down’ what’s in our minds, so we don’t forget.
