Homes to Inspire | Factory Conversion in Amsterdam


This gorgeous family home is situated in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. Its unique features and raw materials are in keeping with its previous life as a factory. This also accounts for the glorious double-height on the ground floor, where the kitchen and dining area are situated. A vintage table and collection of mismatched chairs sit beneath an extraordinary chandelier. 

I love how the bespoke units in the kitchen made from reclaimed timber work in beautifully with the concrete benchtops and brickwork. Clever lighting behind the shelf ensures the work surface is well lit while illuminating the bricks at night. 

At first glance I thought the bathroom was concrete but it's actually a Moroccan waterproof plaster. Warmer and more natural than ordinary tiles, it also create a seamless connection with the natural materials featured in other rooms of the house. 

The main bedroom looks so serene with its muted colours and simple decor. 

How amazing is this home office? Brickwork and concrete floors are carried through from the main part of the house while pendant lights provide a lovely warmth and ambience.

 Low-level furniture in the living room creates a cosy and relaxed space to chill out.  

This part of the house is my favourite. How inviting does that chair look?  I love the chunky shelves and display of books, art and treasures.
