Maison Rika

Climb the stairs above the boutique and gallery space to find the bijou guesthouse. Maison Rika is the creation of Ulrika Lundgren, fashion designer and founder of the Rika label. (In a previous life she was an interior designer - of course!) Classic, elegant, warm and with a twist of vintage, the two bedrooms are stylishly comfortable. A perfect base to explore Amsterdam's "9 streets" area.

I really like those little wall sconces.

The photos of this home show some excellent examples of how to use art to bring personality into an otherwise basic space. This is a concept renters could use more often to personalize their spaces. For homeowners, it is, in my opionion, is a far better option then wild wallpaper. Art is a timless addition while wallpaper patterns come and go to fast to keep track of. However, I am an Artist as well as an Interior Designer, so I might be a little biased on that opinion :-)

hot damn - major inspiration!

It's beautiful, especially the bedroom with the view.

I'm ready to be tucked in right now!

Love the sconces. Do you know who makes them?

Just beautiful - filed away for future reference ...

Also a fan of the sconces ... and that's one steep staircase; better visit soon whilst I'm still able to make it up those stairs.

I'm allways taken how the nordic manage to have comfortable interiors with black and white!
The use of black is absolutely perfect and the lights warm and well chosen.
Will keep this adress for our next week-end in Amsterdam.
Thank you.

Anyone know who the artist is for the piece above the bed? Mung? Can't quite make it out...

Every element is perfection here! I love the graphic artwork-so like antique silhouettes.
