A Amsterdam home


A raw industrial home in Amsterdam, photographed by Nathalie Krag. The walls are just stunning and I love how they used it as a chalk board. And the minimum amount of color makes it, just perfect.

a Piero Lissoni home


A Piero Lissoni home in Tuscany, for his family and friends. An open house with big windows to bring you in the Tuscan life. 

The black steel window frames and stair is just stunning, especially with the raw materials in the furniture.

Art home

This is the beautiful home of duo Patrick Gilles en Dorothee Boissier in Paris. 
I love the classic details with the black and white. Together with the wood makes it a perfect, rustic environment.
