Happy Monday! One of my favorite bloggers, Kat of Dot Dot Dash is with us today, sharing a fabulous home in Amsterdam. Please show her some love by commenting, and visiting her at her blog!
Big hello Life in Sketch readers! My name is Kat from Dot Dot Dash where I write about simple design statements in architecture, interiors and design. When Tina asked me to do a guest post for her about one of my favourite homes, I was more than honoured. It was hard to pick my all time favourite, but this converted warehouse in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam is definitely fitting the bill at the moment.
This image of the home office is what drew me in right away. I dream of living in my own industrial interior, with all the exposed brick and concrete.
The use of raw materials continues throughout the home. In the kitchen, the concrete worktops are accented with hints of matte stainless steel fittings and warmth of the timber.
I love the double height space, and the large windows brings the outside in. It never hurts to add a little sparkle, with the amazing chandelier above the distressed timber dining table and mismatched chairs.
Moving into the living spaces, warmth is added with the carefully chosen furniture.
Simple and comfortable spaces, the intimate dark grey living room is in a lovely contrast to the luxurious white sitting area. The stripped back bedroom is free of clutter…
… as is the muted palette bathroom.
For me this home has all the key design features that I hope to have in my home (all I need now is the perfect warehouse to convert!) The natural, raw materials and a simple palette, are complemented with the warmth of the furniture and accessories giving the home that lived in, yet still stripped back look.
I hope you enjoyed the tour as much as I did. Thanks again to Tina for having me, I loved every minute!
