Reader's home - Jennifer and Hans' Amsterdam apartment

I am really stoked to share this really cute apartment with you. Here's the scoop: My boyfriend, Hans (29) and I, Jennifer (27) have been living in this apartment together for two years now. After studying Fashion Design at ArtEZ in Arnhem and traveling through South America, I moved to Amsterdam in 2011. Here I founded Studio J|A|A|F, a design label that focuses on material and colour combinations. Besides the design label, I am also an interior stylist. Hans has almost finished his PhD in chemistry. Hans and I really like to make our home more personal by combining unusual things or working with out of the ordinary wall paper. The cabinet below the sink has been designed and made by us. We both love gardening, but unfortunately we live on the third floor. Our balcony is covered with pots and plants, but as you can see it’s getting quite green inside too. Jennifer and Hans' apartment is super cozy, and there are lots of great ideas here - the black doors (a long-time favourite), the birch tree branches as functional art, vintage crate storage (also a favourite) and the bathroom is just awesome all around. Thank you for sharing your home with us Jennifer (and Hans)!

Stalking leftovers on a Friday

A cyclone has crossed the coast to the north of me and heavy rain is keeping me indoors. What's a girl to do when she has to stay at home? Real estate stalk of course! Here are some of the houses I found today. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.

Southwestern vibes

I could not help but think of my upcoming trip when I spotted this ranch the other day. Located in Bernal, New Mexico with views of Starvation Peak, it is quintessentially southwestern. It is a new build, designed by Caroline Dooley, and made to appear over 100 years old. The wood flooring is to die for with those colour variations, and the beamed ceilings are a fabulous rustic touch. Like the home I featured earlier, this too would make a superb vacation spot.

Rock House

The Rock House, perched on the edge of a cliff in the outskirts of Stockholm on Lake Mälaren. Designed by Arkitektstudio Widejdal Racki. What a beautiful location, and the mix of concrete, glass and wood creates a modern and organic retreat. I find it a bit cold but with the addition of more rugs and some plants, I think it would be the perfect getaway home.

Pattern

I've got a bathroom thing going on at the moment. Love the way the tiles have been laid in this shower designed by Michael Bechara.
