Take Off Your Shoes

Take off Your Shoes

Image editing by Mimi Berlin. Do take off your shoes and leave them in the hallway after a walk with the dog, after you did your walk backwards or when you’re done walking a fine line. Indulge in some luxurious barefoot-time at home, why don’t you?!

How to Remember the Lyrics to ‘My Favorite Things’

How to Remember the Lyrics to ‘My Favorite Things’

Mimi Berlin feels it’s important to know the lyrics from the classic ‘The Sound of Music’ song; My Favorite Things, so we gathered images to make it more easy to remember the words by.

You’re Welcome! xoxo Mimi Berlin

My Favorite Things is written by Oscar Hammerstein and Richard Rodgers for the musical The Sound of Music (1959)

Shapes of Plants and Plastic in Green

Shapes of Plants and Plastic in Green

A buxus , a planter and an armchair.

Mimi Berlin started using Instagram (@mimiberlin_amsterdam) on a frequent basis a whiile ago. Due to that fact we forget to post the images we make ourselves on this blog. Which, to us, is a shame, since we intend to keep this blog forever and make it our own encyclopedia. The first two images are made by us, the last one is the toad chair designed by Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne. (image via jousse-entreprise.com)

People sometimes ask of us; what is it that you do Mimi Berlin? You keep posting these random images with equally random topics…. Well, we answer, we read these images. Just as important; we edit them, not with Photoshop, but we like to combine images to create new visions or ideas, or to ‘write down’ what’s in our minds, so we don’t forget.
