The One Minute Diva – La Table

egional Reporter, The Duchess of Orange, just sent me a tip advising my readers in the Amsterdam area to drop what they are doing and make plans to go to La Table. It may sound French, but it’s Dutch through and through and held in quite possibly the most charming town south of Amsterdam. The ‘t Gooi village of Naarden Vesting is one of my favorite places to wander on a weekday afternoon when I’ve nothing better to do. In De Grote Kerk (The Big Church), from Thursday 8 – Sunday 11, November, you’ll find a feast for the eyes with this years theme “The Royal Setting” serving up a heady portion of inspiration for holiday décor and design. Pretty much everything to do with interior design, table decorations, and interior lifestyle in general will be celebrated! Celebrated chef Paul Fagel is making a special lunch and dinner arrangement with fair guests as he celebrates his latest book “Aan Tafel met Van Gogh” (At the Table with Van Gogh) . While in Naarden you’ll have to visit Het ArsenaalJan des Bouvrie’s (the most famous Dutch interior designer) design center where you’ll want to recline on one of his modern chaise lounges and wrap yourself in one of his fur throws. Bring a camera and snap a pic in a true diva pose while no one is watching…

All the best,

The Antiques Diva ™
