Yesterday I visited Huis van Gijn: a beautifully restored period home in Dordrecht. I recommend strolling through the house using the audio tour: you get to know so much more that way. And take the time to watch the film, which is shown on the 3rd floor. It’s really interesting and funny as well.

It’s a little dark in some rooms and I only brought an iPhone… But here goes:

Fresh produce in the kitchen and the hallway on the ground floor
No, that’s not me: I took a sneaky photo of Jook ;) The clock had paper boats which moved, we were both mesmerized by it.

 

Huis-van-gijn_Bathroom-Hallway

Fell in love with this beautiful bathroom and the hatstand in the hallway. The painting is a reproduction of the Nightwatch by Rembrandt, ha.

How could I resist photographing these fabulous ceramics… Oh and of course there was a spooky attic with toys :)

Have you visited House van Gijn or another period house?
