Animal Prints

Animal prints in interior design can be a tricky one. If done wrong, animal prints can make a room look tacky and kitsch. The trick is to use these prints sparingly. By giving that old antique armchair a new upholstery in an animal print, it will go from boring to a unique, eye-catching piece.

Ultra Violet

ULTRA VIOLET

Ultra Violet has been chosen as the Color of the Year 2018 by Pantone. And since this is my first post in 2018, I thought it a fitting subject. If you ask me Ultra Violet is a bit of a déja-vu. I have already written some posts about Violet and Aubergine (same color family) here and here.

Utrecht Chair

The Utrecht chair is a design of Dutch designer Gerrit Rietveld.  And although the design dates back to 1935, this chair is still being used by interior designers all over the world for high-end projects.

Worn Leather

Worn leather furniture, usually in tan colors, add a touch of warmth in these mostly monochrome interiors. All these interiors have a minimal, Scandinavian vibe going on, which I love.

Bachelor Pad

Bachelor pads are something else completely. Full of sturdy, masculine vintage tan and black leathers, steel, bare brick, concretes and dark colors, they ooze cool and a nonchalant messyness.

Blush Pink

Blush Pink Interiors for spring is still the vibe right now. Also known as Rose Quartz, it was the official color of 2016. Personally, I tend to think that pink is for little girls, but these pics prove that blush pink interiors can be totally perfect. And that I may be a bit prejudiced…

Amsterdam Loft

My blog actually helps me make sense of all the trends and hypes in interior-land. So that I can create my 3D Artist Impressions with added creativity and informed interior design choices.

Dark Kitchens

Dark kitchens are on my mind right now. I am doing a project creating visuals for a huge townhouse here in Amsterdam. This house will have a summer kitchen and a winter kitchen. I’m thinking of making the winter kitchen dark and cosy. Not sure yet whether it will be industrial, modern rustic or classic chic so I have been collecting imagery for all three styles.  Continue Reading →

I’m back again and what has drawn my eye lately is the large round mirror. They are suddenly turning up in lots of blogs that find their way to my inbox daily and a quick browse on Pinterest rewarded me with lots of round mirror inspiration. I am not talking about the standard size of old, but huge ones with at least a 1 metre diameter.
