A converted office space

Nicolet, a real estate developer from Amsterdam, emailed with a really impressive project she just completed that I had to share. It is an 90 m2 apartment in De Pijp area. The Ruysdaelkade is formally known as a red light district.  It is a studio with a walk-in bedroom and walk-in bathroom. I created a patio to provide more day light. I bought it as on office and turned it into an apartment. It is build around 1920 as a temporary church in name of our Queen, but unfortunately there are no signes of that anymore. Unfortunately, for the sale of houses in Amsterdam, everything needs to be pretty plain without being to eccentric. I absolutely love the simplicity of the space. It allows the gorgeous details to stand out - like the hardwood floors (YES!!). And that patio - so cool!!! (View the listing here)

Clijsters Architectuur Studio

I was really taken by the portfolio of Amsterdam-based architecture firm Clijsters when I happened upon it while googling blog stuff and things. It's modern and minimal but warm and a bit rustic. Gorgeous wood beams, flooring and cabinetry keeps the spaces from feeling cold. And HELLO - check out the fire pit platform thing! Sweet!

More from Inga Powilleit

I didn't quite get my fill of the mesmerizing photography of Inga Powilleit the other day, so I thought an encore would be a great treat on a Wednesday. Eye candy at it's finest.

Inga Powilleit

Happy Friday everyone! Isn't the first week back from holidays the LONGEST EVER?! I need something to get me through the day, so I have a little treat to share in the form of gorgeous eye candy at the hands of Dutch photographer Inga Powilleit. Her photos are absolutely stunning, and I especially love her portraits in fabulous spaces. She brings a room to life, and I want to hang out with these folks and enjoy a coffee, some conversation and their decor. P.S. Inga has had the honour of photographing the home of super stylist Emily Chalmers (pics 4 & 5).

Laura Alvarez

Minimalist 2 storey apartment space within a heritage building in Amsterdam. Clean lines, sharp angles, limited colour palette and smooth surfaces. Warmed by wood elements. A steel staircase angles between the levels separating the dining and living spaces in the open plan first floor. But the hero of the space is fully equipped (albeit minimalist lined) kitchen centre stage. Design by Laura Alvarez Architecture.
