A Tour of The Chic Apartment in Amsterdam

Owners wanted turned their home into a perfect match for a stylish house with dark and moody colors in the Museum Quarter in Amsterdam, where the apartment is situated. This task was completed by Anja Hesp, interior designer and owner of Ijzersterk Interieurontwerp.

“Owners already knew that they wanted an open plan kitchen and the entrance of the bathroom moved to the other side of the house. The kitchen, bathroom and floors had to be completely renewed and we had the privilege to plan and create this. A full scale renovation started and the end result was a successful make over. The new herringbone floors with high sideboards in matt black are a perfect match with the purple walls in the living room. The sofa in golden velvet pops out against this dark background. Brass elements like lamps and accessories are used throughout the whole apartment. For the bedrooms the same style was being used; dark colors on the wall and a lot of soft details like velvet wallpaper. In the bathroom we used large marble tiles to get a hotel-like atmosphere with a walk-in shower area and round shaped sinks and mirrors. The floor consists of darker and lighter marble tiles in the herringbone shape that is used for the wooden floors throughout the apartment,” explained Anja Hesp
