I know I’ve been missing in action lately here on the blog, and that’s only because I’ve been busy elsewhere—on Neybers! The photos above are some of the very few I’ve done so far. If you haven’t heard of Neybers yet …
Neybers is an interior design playground for anyone interested in decoration. In neybers users create rooms and decorate them with a vast range of modern and stylish products from real designers and brands – in a simple and playful environment.
So to all you passionate about design and decoration, I’m sure you’ll be hooked on Neybers as well! ♥
Last Wednesday, I ticked off another item off my must-see places: Victoria & Albert Museum, “the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design.” And I can’t believe I got to explore it with a fellow PSID-colleague who just happened to be in London as well!
As we were walking to the museum, we marveled at the architectural details of a building, just to discover seconds later that we were marveling at the V&A itself. As most architecture here in London, it was brimming with classical details, and I was pleased to see that the interior was just as beautiful and detailed …

Oh Harrods, I can’t believe I’d never heard of you before we went for a visit last Tuesday …
It felt like Christmas in there. ♥
We are fortunate to stay in a place just a walk from the British Museum. We went in for the first time last Tuesday to visit an exhibition: Eight Mummies, Eight Lives, Eight Stories. We weren’t allowed to snap photos in there, but it was interesting to learn how advanced their technology is: They’re now able to scan through enclosed mummy coffins and reveal the structure of their bones, which reveal a whole lot.
The British Museum’s collections are divided into the continents of which they’re from. Wikipedia: Its permanent collection, numbering some 8 million works, is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence. It was quite overwhelming! So after we’d seen the mummies exhibition, BZ went home to work and I explored Africa. We plan to go back today to see more, and I’ll definitely be snapping photos of the Elgin Marbles! (Totally forgot they were in there! Thanks Wikipedia for reminding me!)
