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)!

A glam apartment in Lisbon

This apartment is HOT! It is located in Lisbon and was designed by Cristina Jorge de Carvalho. Cristina created an elegant, glamorous and feminine space that is simply stunning, by mixing modern, mid-century vintage and classic pieces. It is eclectic but it all works so well together. My favourite touch is the fancy crystal chandelier in the modern black kitchen. Sexy!

An apartment by General Assembly 

I absolutely adore this Brooklyn apartment, designed by Sarah Lawlor Zames of General Assembly. After trying and failing to find an apartment with character, the owners of this space opted to combine two fairly lifeless new development apartments and renovate to perfectly suit their style. Bringing in as many natural materials as possible was important to these penthouse owners, so GA incorporated concrete wall and ceiling details, reclaimed wood floors, marble slabs in the shower and kitchen, and plenty of custom Walnut millwork. We designed steel and glass doors to divide public and private areas, and full height flush millwork doors to stretch the space upward.  This is a fantastic example of how to create a modern space that is comfortable and has personality. The wood flooring is an absolute dream, and is beautiful when combined with the marble and walnut. The southwestern vibe in the living room really works and the unexpected graphic wallpapers add some whimsy. I would not change a thing. Lucky owners! (photos by Joe Fletcher)

The marble against the walnut and matte black is stunning.

Retro vintage

Ok, I had to share one last project by The New Design Group....mainly because this one was clear right away who inspired some of the bold decor choices. :) We wanted to instill a fun atmosphere in this beautiful townhouse by using a bold palette. To give the space a younger feel we decided to paint out most of the period features (to tone them down) and then layer styles from different eras for an eclectic and inviting look. We sourced and repurposed items from a variety of places: thrift shops, antique dealers, high street and custom made orders (the hot pink lacquered coffee table is based on an original design by Abigail Ahern).
