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.

Maybe more pretty than real flowers, maybe not, either way…Auch Haben!

Shapes of Plants and Plastic in Green

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.

Wouldn’t this be a lovely page in a magazine? xoxo Mimi Berlin.
