Cosy meets contemporary in a Rotterdam home

Why hello Monday! I hope you've had a great weekend? We're slowly snaking our way home across the Baltic sea to Malmö via Denmark after our sailing adventure... it's been such a relaxing time!  To match my mood, I thought I'd kick off the week with this lovely, calm space in Rotterdam belonging to Stefan Prins, a partner of architect and design firm, the Powerhouse Company. Stefan has spent three years designing and building his dream home and turned to Holly Marder and Hedda Pier of Avenue Design Studio for interior design assistance. The result is a Nordic style home that bridges the gap between 'clean and contemporary' and cosy and comfortable with the use of rich, natural textures. Here's a sneak peek of the sitting room and kitchen / dining area...

What a great space? I love the open-plan nature of the living area and the soft, muted tones.

Get the look from Stefan's home: sitting room - art by July Adrichem, source natural linen made-to-measure curtains here (I also love these two-toned curtains - so lovely!). Kitchen / dining area - wishbone chairs, ceramics by July Adrichem, 'Up' poster by Fine Little Day,  bench from IKEA.

You can see more of this space and read more about the project here.

I'm such a big fan of Dutch style and often showing homes from The Netherlands. Check out a few of my favourites here!

Right, better get a move on, we need to take to the water....

Have a great start to the week!


  1. Thanks for sharing,Niki. Always interesting to discover talented and passionate interior designers like the duo behind Avenue Design Studio and see how they go about a project.

  2. I really liked the concept of this house: warm but with a flow that kept it "open" even when the curtains were drawn closed! (I actually read the full story). Thanks for sharing. I love spaces that have a seamless design making even the most complex issues look easy peasy...I enjoyed it!
