Calming, white, minimal, and jaw-droppingly beautiful, Cotton Cake opens its arms to hungry travellers, discerning shoppers, and Instagram bloggers alike. This concept store and café sells food – the buckwheat waffles are especially delicious – also offering gluten-free options. Needless to say, their coffee is expertly pulled, and you can sip a cappuccino while eyeing their curated collection, including books, accessories, and clothing featuring names like Samsøe & Samsøe, Mimi et Toi, One Teaspoon and Monocrafft.

You have to see Hôtel Droog to believe it. Its name comes from the room/studio you can rent upstairs, but the vast majority of it is a concept store and a design café. Droog itself is a conceptual design company, and the interior in this hotspot is, of course, impeccable; featured in various design magazines, it even has a Fairy Tale Garden. One thing’s for sure: whatever you want to think of it as, Hôtel Droog is an endless source of valuable inspiration and beautiful pictures.

Sukha means ‘joy for life,’ and this boutique conveys it perfectly. In the centre of Amsterdam, this concept store is one of the most peaceful and beautiful you’ll ever see; its oft-changing interior is all soft hues, white accents, and poetry, with each transformation more beautiful than the last. Both an eco-label and a shop, Sukha sells gifts, fashion and interior items of wood, paper, and handcrafted materials, donating part of its profit to help Nepalese children.
