Entries in Dutch (27)
Monday means escape day. Run away from the beginning of the work week and dream of faraway places. Enter the dark and moody luxury of the Canal House boutique hotel in Amsterdam's Jordaan district. Waiting within is a secret green oasis bathed in dappled light. Light and dark, old and new, drawing inspiration from Dutch history and art. Shall we run away to the dark side? Work can wait.
Gracefully balanced and restrained this apartment is part of a 100-year-old building located on one of Amsterdam's most beautiful 17th century canals. Light filled and layered. An historic shell and a modern interior, expansive and cosy. The best of both worlds. Past and present. Beauty and function. Canal House HG by Powerhouse Company.
... with alcohol to make me fall for this home by Dutch interior architects i29. Modern and fabulous with a limited palette of grey and white. The hero though is the plywood used repeatedly throughout the home. An often overlooked, "second class" building material is the standout here. That and the open plan design, the fireplace, the walls of glass. No definitely the plywood ;)
