A postcard from Amsterdam as Europe reopens its borders

Borders between most EU states, closed for some months because of the Corona crisis, become more porous this morning. Travel is not yet enthusiastically encouraged, but holidaymakers who adhere to local Covid-19 restrictions may gently filter through. What will tentative first visitors find in Amsterdam?

The Netherlands is now in its second phase of lockdown ease. Restaurants and café terraces have re-opened. Schools are back. Museums and theatres are welcoming visitors, and shopping is no longer a nervous dash to stock up on essentials.

But Amsterdammers emerge blinking from lockdown to a different world from the one they shut their doors on three months ago. “It’s life as unusual,” a friend remarked.

Social-distancing regulations – in the Netherlands 1.5 metres – remain in force. Unlike in the UK, Dutch shops were allowed to remain open during lockdown, though many, especially those with an established online presence, chose to close. They

Need advice on decorating your home during lockdown? Try a virtual interior-design service

The lockdown experience has inspired some to declutter, repaint and generally sort out their home; while others stare blankly at their own four walls, beginning to hate them but not knowing how to go about changing them. So this bank holiday weekend, the last until August, is just the time when you could do with calling in an interior designer – if only you were allowed to let them into your home.

Some, however, are getting around the issue by launching virtual design services, offering their expertise over Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp, to give clients the experience of working with a professional decorator with zero contact. Among them is interior designer, Benji Lewis, who launched his new spin-off service, Zoom That Room, just after lockdown kicked in.

For him, this new way of working is not only timely, but also democratises the whole process: those who wouldn’t normally consider hiring

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Interior Fully Revealed In New Spy Shots

The interior of the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport has been spied fully uncovered, betraying a design that’s wholly different from the Escape that shares its platform.

The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is on its way to give Ford an off-road–oriented crossover like the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk, and today its interior was spied completely uncovered. The Bronco Sport is based on the same platform as the current Escape, but thankfully, it features wholly different interior and exterior styling from Ford’s inoffensive-but-bland small crossover. 

Taking a page from its square-jawed bodywork, the Bronco Sport’s interior is suitably beefed up relative to the carlike Escape. The fully digital gauge cluster – which is likely an option – hides inside a hooded binnacle not unlike that of the F-150 pickup. Likewise the center dashboard air vents that bookend a horizontal floating touchscreen, under which is a slot for storing phones, wallets, and the like.

Hello!

It’s been four months since I closed my antiques shop in Maryland, and I really do miss everyone! Some of you have emailed, called or texted me – many thanks for staying in touch.

From Gustavian painted furniture to garden accessories, Cote Jardin Antiques in Georgetown, DC has it all. I’ve been purchasing from them for years. Do you remember the giant clock face in the breakfast room of our first home? That came from CJA.

Cote Jardin specializes in fine garden antiques – think of carved stone urns, important bronze statuary, charming faux bois furniture, etc. They also have an impressive inventory of antique French, Italian, Swedish, English, and other Continental furniture and
