On a very Misty and Grey day, in typical Dutch weather, Club H.o.p. and Mimi Berlin decided to visit Aalsmeer. Situated in this small town, near Schiphol Amsterdam, is the largest trading centre for plants and flowers in the world. The flower auction is open to the public on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 07.00 to 11.00, and on Thursdays, from 07.00 to 09.00 (Royal Flora Holland). There are many colorful flowers to be seen, in bulk! But outside of the buildings there isn’t so much color to be found.

Nice to know: The Aalsmeer Flower Auction building is the second-largest building by footprint in the world, covering 518,000 square metres.
71 designer presents in the shape of caleidoscopic figures (human, animal and make-believe), all in the color grey. Shopping production, 8 pages, by Mimi Berlin’s interior stylist a-MB-iance for Eigen Huis & Interieur Magazine, issue 12, 2014.
Hi, I am Netty Neat Freak. I like to keep things clean and tidy. My favorite color is grey. I like my garden clean, my car covered, my nails impeccable and my pets caged.
