Every now and again I stumble across a simply incredible home that fills me inspiration (and more than a little life envy!). This is one of them. Located near Vondelpark in the centre of Amsterdam, the family home is laid out over 240 square metre (2583 square foot) of loveliness. Think high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, vast open-plan living spaces and beautiful period features. Naturally, the family has amazing taste too, choosing to furnish the space with a wonderful combination of vintage and second hand finds, contemporary and ethnic pieces and a hint of colour in every corner! Oh and guess what? It could be yours. Yup. This beauty is for sale! Holland anyone?!

Find out more about this house here. Found via Style Files with thanks.

Be still my beating heart….

A fabulous home in the heart of a fabulous city.

Oh how I’d love to live here!

Could you imagine?

Just in case the house doesn’t come with everything inside (or you’re not quite ready to move overseas) – here’s a quick guide on how to get the look in your own home: pick a beautiful kilm rug here, lampe gras wall light, keep an eye out for a vintage plan chest here, pick up an original Jielde zig-zag floor and desk lamp here. This origami mobile is similar. Safari chair.

I do love Dutch style, don’t you? I’ve shown lots and lots of them on My Scandinavian Home over the years – all of which you can see here. Isn’t the home in a former children’s nursery particularly lovely?!

Have a great day! 

PS I’m heading into town on my bike now to meet a friend who I haven’t seen for over 15 years – so excited!
