For a long time I never understood why Ghent didn’t have amazing design stores like you see in other big cities. As it turned out, it was me. I was the problem in the Ghent vs deco shop problem. Because we do have one! And it’s called Ydee. And I’ve walked by it like a million times when we went out for dinner. I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I’ve missed it all those times.

But what can I say, these last couple of weeks, I’ve developed an interior design radar. No deco item is safe from me and it makes me discover a lot of cool items. And now, it also made me discover this great shop. So close. So easy. So many pretty items.

Like a little excited kid I took my camera, grabbed my boyfriend along and we were headed to that same spot in Ghent we’ve passed so many times, to discover the inside of this wonderful 300mstore.

So yes, it has happened. I had to take something home. Okay, a couple of things:

Wanna go have a look yourself? You can find the store at Oudburg 56, 9000 Gent. Rather be a lazy potato and shop from your comfy couch? You can! Because I’ve just spotted a webshop on their website as well with a selection of their collection. You can even ask the ladies behind this store (both interior designers) to decorate your entire home. Pretty cool right!
