Canal House

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.

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.

Showering in the rain forest

Minimalist in the extreme and as far away from a simple shower in a rain forest as you could imagine but that's all I can think of as I stare in wonder at this bathroom by Dutch interior architects Jasper Jansen and Jeroen Dellensen of i29. The hum of insects and enough humidity from the shower and I'd be there.

Depot Rotterdam

Light, bright, modern. Like a taste of sherbet or a slice of summer fruit. It's fresh, it's young, it's zingy and it's fun. Interiors by Dutch firm Depot Rotterdam.
