The magnificent facades of the famous canal houses in Amsterdam contain a lot of interesting and sometimes unexpected homes. This apartment in one of such houses impresses from the first photo with its scale and architecture: ceiling beams, arched windows and a brick wall resemble the interiors of some Gothic mansion and not a modern city apartment. In addition, the huge size of the living room and high ceilings only strengthen the association with the country house. What a wonderful home!
This wonderful apartment is located on one quiet and very beautiful street in Amsterdam, in a traditional house like in a postcard. The total area is 61 sqm and it consists of a spacious living room-kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and balcony. The light finishes were complemented by stucco moldings and a glass partition separating the rooms. But the main feature is furniture and decor. Everything mixed here: classic, modern, and oriental motifs. A special mood here is created by gold and silver details, as well as brown and terracotta color tones. Very stylish and completely non-conservative home in a house built in 1906!
It’s interesting to see such a modern design in one of the famous canal houses in Amsterdam, as the owners of such homes usually prefer more classic interiors, emphasizing the luxurious historical facades. Nevertheless, the owner of this apartment hired Piet Boon studio to create a minimalistic and fancy dwelling that would honor his lifestyle and passions. We especially love the relax area with an olive tree under a glass roof – a real luxury for a city living!
This amazing townhouse is located on the bank of one of the canals in the heart of Amsterdam. It is amazing because it was built in 1665. The interiors are designed with incredible love and attention to detail: there are aged stoves and a fireplace, original ceiling slabs, and an incredibly cozy backyard and most importantly – best views of the canal. Perhaps everyone would like to live here!
The unique building in Amsterdam, on the last floor of which this unique loft is located, was built in 1615 as the private residence. Today it is an important landmark and one of the defining houses of the city. That’s why the Nice Makers studio started the reconstruction project with a careful study of the space architecture and how the natural light is distributed in it. Massive ceiling beams have been preserved and strengthened, creating an expressive foundation for future design. Magnificent home!
This loft in Amsterdam shows how Dutch people are close in spirit with the Scandinavians. And it’s not just the white color that prevails in the design. Laconic modern furniture, clean lines, stylish details – seems that Swedish designers have worked here. But there are also lots of unique details and features in this home. Enjoy!
Dylan Amsterdam is not just a hotel, it’s also a home for the Vinkeles restaurant, that has three Michelin stars. The hotel is an ideal place for those looking for an island of tranquility in a big city. At guests’ disposal, besides the restaurant, there is a cozy courtyard, a bar and a living room where you can sit by the fireplace. But the main thing is that The Dylan is a boutique hotel with beautiful rooms. There are both mansard rooms with a huge bathroom, and less specious but not less stylish room. Even if you are just passing through Amsterdam, stop here to have a cup of coffee in this incredibly beautiful backyard.
Accents in design are as much important as general concept and color scheme. At Kimpton de Witt hotel in Amsterdam, the main highlights of the design are blue accents and floral prints. They perfectly compliment the cool gray-white color scheme and make the interiors special. One of the main roles is also given to geometry which is seen in the planning and decorative solutions. Especially we love the bar that is both in mood and color noticeably different from the whole hotel – it is a little gloomy and mysterious, with point lighting and black walls. Such an interesting and stylish project!
If you always wondered what lay behind the beautiful facades of cozy canal houses in Amsterdam, today we have an excellent opportunity to look inside one of them. This beautiful townhouse on a picturesque central street was built over 100 years ago but has recently been restored with the preservation of unique architectural details. Gorgeous home!
If you ever happened to view Dutch interior design magazines, then most likely you already see the works of Amsterdam-based decorator Cleo Scheulderman. The fact is that she decorates photo shoots for country’s leading magazines, as well as designers and architects. And it’s obvious why: Cleo possesses excellent taste and understands perfectly what it takes to create a beautiful interior image. Hope you like her portfolio!
