After seeing only one image of this home in Amsterdam I knew it would be a stunner and it really is! In a former garage in a canal home in Amsterdam lies this spacious and bright loft apartment. With high ceilings, beautiful orginal beams and many vintage elements the owners transformed this space into a unique and light space. During the renovation they had help of a ‘building biologist’ to make this home as ecological as possible. By reusing materials you’re not only helping the enviroment but I also think it gives the home some extra charm. The entire home is absolutely stunning, but 2 things stand out for me; the bathroom (with bathtub dating back to 1900) and those amazing skylights in the living room. What a dream!
I completely understand when you live in a big vibrant city that you want your home to be a serene oasis. Carla Navas and Victor Molina of WIT architecture and interior design studio did exactly that in the city centre of Barcelona. The beautiful oak floor and broken white walls give the space warmth while the exposed beams give the apartment extra charm. Because there aren’t many windows the bathroom and kitchen are decorated in light colours. Looking at this apartment I become completely relaxed which is exactly what the designers wanted to achieve. Absolutely stunning!
If yesterday’s post was a bit much for you, than this apartment is probably more up your alley. This lovely neutral colored apartment just hit the market in Gothenburg (and of course the real estate agency is Entrance Mäkleri). This home is completely decorated in neutral colors with many plants and warm fabrics. A really cool feature is the glass wall that divides the living room with the workspace. Light is very important in Scandinavian homes, so this is such a clever way to create an extra room without losing natural light. And it’s a real eye catcher! This Scandinavian apartment really looks like a home where you can completely relax. How lovely!
I have posted about the projects of Tara and Percy of Jersey Ice Cream Co many times before on my blogs simply because their work is absolutely stunning. Today I will give you a brand new project by Jersey Ice Cream Co that they have just finished renovating and the best thing about this home is that you can actually stay in it! This Rittenhouse apartment already had a good foundation with high ceilings, lots of old charm and a private roof terrace but after Tara and Percy worked their magic it has become a beautiful serene space. The apartment might be small but with the neutral colorscheme and clever design such as the benches against the wall they made it a beautiful serene and functional space, it’s the ideal airbnb stay to unwind after a long day in Philadelphia.
When you go travelling you always want to see as much of the local culture as you possibly can. Now of course you can book a room in a large international hotel but perhaps the best way to really get to know the local culture is to rent a traditional home on Airbnb like this Moroccan riad in Marrakesh. A riad is a traditional Moroccan home with an interior garden or courtyard which gives the inhabitants a lot of privacy and shelter for the Moroccan weather. This riad in Marrakesh is beautifully decorated in Moroccan style with serene neutral colored bedrooms and lovely touches of pink in the living spaces. Next to the interior garden this riad also has a roof terrace where you can relax or have breakfast/dinner in the warm Moroccan sun. This Moroccan riad looks so peaceful and I’m sure it is an amazing place to stay for a relaxing holiday in Marrakesh.
