When it comes to beautiful cities in the Netherlands, Haarlem is one of the contenders for the top position. And in one of Haarlems' golden little backstreets you can find My Deer Art Shop: a stylish store that's all about interior design, limited edition art prints and lush greenery. Owner Maaike Koster has long been an interior designer as well as illustrator and created a perfect inspirational space full of independent brands both from the Netherlands as the rest of the world.

After personally delivering the first batch of Waterworks-sets to the shop in Haarlem, we're very happy to be able to add My Deer Art Shop to our House of Thol store locator.
On this day, while outside the drizzle of rain is being blown horizontally against my window and spring is still far, so far away, i'm dreaming about walking in this flower installation by Japanese interactive designstudio Teamlab.
Teamlab about the installation: "In Floating Flower Garden, living flowers float up and down in relation to the movement of people in the space."
Teamlab about teamlab: "Teamlab is an an interdisciplinary group of ultratechnologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design and the natural world.
TeamLab aims to explore a new relationship between humans and nature through art."
The interactive kinetic installation was set up back in 2015, and sadly i haven't been able to visit it in real life.
Luckily, with the video, we can still imagine being there in person.
