When Frederique Schenkels and Stijn Dijkstra were looking for a new home, they hunted for awhile before finding this apartment. “[W]hen this apartment came online for sale, we knew right away that this one was a gem,” they explain. “The first time we saw the apartment we fell in love with the big spaces and beautiful light coming in from the patio, which is the heart of the house!”

Along with all the natural light flooding in from big windows and the bright white floors, the space feels much larger than its size. But the brightness isn’t the only benefit the couple enjoys. The apartment, which they’ve owned for two years, also came with “an office on the floor level, which fits perfectly for us as we both have our own company.”

Indeed, Schenkels and Dijkstra are one seriously creative couple. Schenkels has her own jewelry webshop named OONA & MAE, where her “passion for the most unique gems and creativity comes together.”

Dijkstra is a photo/videographer with a “passion for nature and exploring our beautiful planet,” which you can see on Instagram @furstset and Dijkstra’s website.

Together, they run the Instagram account, where they share photos and DIY inspiration reels of their lovely living room that full of colorful modern furniture and vintage vibes.
