Van der Pretty

The floaty Amsterdam home 
of interior designer Rachel van der Brug 
is quite delicate and romantic, 
yet has a lovely relaxed feel about it, 
or what do you think? 

And the dusky lavenders and pinks 
are instantly making me think... spring.

I somehow really like the feeling of layers in this home,
like it's been shaped over the years,
not copying the latest fads... x

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

I agree, so many beautiful details, patterns, fabrics, textures!

I've spent a good two hours just studying these photos - what a beautiful house. It is so elegant and full of charm, yet so apparently...lived in. And those little messy details are what make it worth looking at. So many ideas here. Thank you for sharing!

Such a beautiful house. I've spent too much time today just looking and studying these images wondering why I'm so attracted to them. And the answer is that this house is gorgeous, elegant and full of charming layers and textures and yet, is so apparently...lived in. That is exactly the look I'm aspiring for (with a four-year old afoot, I can ask for no more) and there are so many ideas to steal here. Thanks for sharing!
