Mariska's Bold & Bright Amsterdam Apartment

House Call

Name: Mariska
Location: Amsterdam

I am about to embark on a new adventure in Amsterdam and would like to share my 117 square meter (1,259 square feet) home, which I completely renovated. I bought it 10 years ago and immediately fell in love with it because it had a fireplace. The house was quite a mess as it had been rented out for a longer period and had not been renovated since the 70s. My style is eclectic, I love collecting art & objects.

I find it difficult to choose my favorite pieces as I love them all. I buy with my gut and never think if something would fit. Everything finds its place in my home and gets moved around over time. I am a designer and my home has always served as an oversized inspiration board. It is a warm and welcoming place and has served me and my two kids well.

Thanks, Mariska!
