My home

My first post contains a few pictures of my apartment in Amsterdam. A few months ago I moved from de 2nd to the 1st floor. You probably ask yourself why? Well, there was more then one reason for all this effort, like a nice wooden floor, central heating, better kitchen and bathroom. Here is the result.... 

This is my inspiration wall, it's one of the post personal things
 in my apartment and it contains a lot of what I really love.

This is a vintage chair of Han Pieck,
 my father got it as a present over 30 years 
ago from a colleague who was moving to 
Canada, and now after years in the attic 
it's appreciated again every day!

An overview of the living

Sponge vase of Moooi 
(design Marcel Wanders) and a warrior 
of the terracota army in China.


Because I can't afford the real 
ones yet I frame pictures of art 
I love so I can still enjoy it,
 like this painting of 
Elizabeth Peyton

When I work frome home, i'm sitting at the dinning table so I have an nice view on the busy street and my inspiration wall.

  1. Welcome to blogging! Your flat looks wonderful!

  2. Thanks, your one of the bloggers that inspired me :-)!

  3. This is exactly what I needed to see, to feel genuinely inspired. My apartment looks similar to yours... must get rid of my bulky, retro television to make it really work... but then I couldn't watch Starsky & Hutch.
