I have been living in my cozy apartment in Amsterdam West since almost four years. The first house after moving out of my family’s house. The first two years I acted like if it was just a temporary residence. I thought I could find something more spaceful. Unfortunately, moving to a ‘better’ place in Amsterdam is not that easy. So, starting from the moment Davide moved in, I had the feeling I needed to make it more ‘homely’. And it’s still work in progress! Last Christmas we bought a prodigious king-size bed and only last week, after researching hours and hours on Pinterest, our new rounded table arrived. Next task: finding a solution to improve the illumination in the rooms.

In the beginning, I was used to chose cheaper and functional items but now that I realize this will be our home for a while longer, I take everything more seriously and prefer to spend a bit more and get pretty contemporary design products in exchange. After browsing around I came across Flinders, an interiors online store which offers design brands such as HAY, Muuto, Ferm Living and many more. I picked the black standing lamp produced by Zuiver, a Dutch interior design label with friendly priced products.

To make the living room a bit more cozy, I went for the Ferm Living rounded carpet with triangles. I’m a big fan of this Danish brand that designs interior products with a graphic touch. I probably repinned their entire Pinterest account. Lately I’m extremely into the ‘modern nomad’ interior style which means I added quite some wooden home furnishing accessories, big plants and orange/red details like the pillow on the couch. I honestly think the carpet fits perfectly in the theme!  Would love to add two rotan chairs around our table..

Inspiration: Pretty Plates

First thing I do as soon as our ordered dishes arrive at the table, I check what name is on the bottom. Trust me when I say (well Davide tells me every time) that it looks quite weird. But lately all the plates restaurants use are so pretty! So when I come home I can check where to buy them. I collected my favorites for you and where to shop, in case you have the same particular habit.
