my scandinavian home: A fab Amsterdam apartment

A fab Amsterdam apartment

Friday, 31 October 2014

This is my second dutch home tour of the week (see the other one here). I really do love the Dutch style. It's incredibly similar to Swedish decor with the white floors and walls, but the Dutch tend to go for more bright pops of colour. This home, spotted over at wonderful blog French By Design, in the heart of Amsterdam belongs to interior designer / stylist Brechtje Troost. It follows the general Dutch design rule with the white backdrop and bursts of colour but it also features a fab mid-century twist. And wait - I even spot a Swedish print! An apartment truly deserved of the coveted Friday my scandinavian home tour spot, don't you think?!

I love this apartment,  it's very cool don't you think?

For classic mid-century furniture try auction houses Lauritz and Live Auctioneers. I love the cognac tote (similar one here). I'm not sure if it's possible to find a kitty cat as cute as that one though....?

Do you know what I'm noticing more and more of? Wall to wall carpets! Now, I know that in the UK and the US it's extremely common to have carpets in the home, especially in more cosy rooms such as the bedroom and sitting room. But I was amazed to hear a Swedish friend who is currently planning to add carpets to all the bedrooms in her new home. This is something of a revolution. Could it be one of the big trends for 2015?! 

How do you feel about wall to wall carpets?

Wishing you all a very happy halloween and a great weekend (up to anything fun?).  See you Monday!

  1. Oh I don't like wall to wall carpets, they get dirty easily & so many microscopic bugs. Like the apartment though! Ginny

  3. I'm in the US and most people here are tearing their carpets up, if they can afford it, and putting down wood or bamboo floors. (I love bamboo as it's so earth friendly.) Carpets seem to be becoming more and more unpopular here.
