Menno Kroon's Flowers:


Tucked away at Cornelis Schuytstraat 11 in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid is the most intoxicating flower shop in the entirety of the Netherlands. Stepping through the front door into the dimly lit space, greenery and flowers hanging from every imaginable surface, encourages leaving the city behind. A swirl of beauty surrounds everything inside the shop, and many of the flowers are imported from literally all over the world on a daily basis. Should you ever find yourself in Amsterdam and in need of flowers–or just a dash of beauty and stillness to sprinkle into your day–stop by Menno Kroon and immerse yourself within a surrealist world of beauty so striking, that it just asks to be painted. Yes, it's that intense.
