first or second store

We think in choices. 
Choices in life. 
Choices in design. 
FIRST choices and SECOND choices. 

We have a passion for interior, design, materials, 
creating stories and experiences. 
We love to share all of this with you. 

FIRST experiences lead to SECOND moments. 

We want to create your story 
A story at home that is nothing but you. 
You are our FIRST priority.

 This weekend I was invited for
a special dinner at the beautiful new 
First or Second concept store in Alkmaar (northern Netherlands)

The First or Second concept store
 is founded  by Jantine and Vivian (April and May)
and from the moment I entered the shop 
I felt their great passion for interior, design, fashion, art, 
children rooms, prints and materials but also second hand items!
 I was greatly inspired by the originality and the appearance of their shop
 (that will be changed every 3 months to a new theme!)

Besides all the beautiful styled corners in the store, 
there was the decorated and furnished home, the 1or2 VILLA
which is - just like the 1or2 CAFE -  part of  (and located in)
  the conceptstore and a real eye catcher.
I could spend  hours in that amazing home 
and yes I really would love to live in there!!

After our tour in the VILLA Jantine and Vivian took us to the 
cafe where we had some drinks, a delicious meal
 (prepared in the beautiful Kvik kitchen of the villa) and a nice cup of coffee!
Surrounded by the stunning designs of 
Norm architects and  Menu and accompanied by
lovely and inspiring people I really had a fantastic evening!

just loved the warm and very personal atmosphere in the store 
and it was a pleasure to admire 
what Jantine and Vivian have accomplished in a very short time ... 
It was great to be there... thanks sweet ladies!
