Amsterdam warehouse gone family home with lots of vintage treasures
Oh, I just found this gem of a family place yesterday. Sitting right in the canals of our last destination, Amsterdam, so I had lots of memories coming back!
A former warehouse just off Prinsengracht, one of the main canals in Amsterdam’s city center, it is a four-storey red-brick building built in the early 1800s. A typical long stretched space (home owners used to pay taxes based on the width of their houses back in the 1600!) that was recently renovated by their passionate and current owners.
The children’s rooms are sitting under the steeply pitched eaves. And the parents created such a poetic universe for their little ones, it is just beautiful. In general, I just cannot stop looking at these pictures. So many little details, vintage finds and cool ideas. I love it!
In between the Vintage finds, there are also some bespoke pieces. Like the ceiling-height living room cabinet made by local Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek. It is composed of recycled cupboard doors and just so awesome!
“Sometimes designers forget about comfort, but it’s a home and it should feel like home.” Marloes Hoedeman, owner of this amazing place.
There is nothing more to add to this…
