A contemporary dream house, the Industrial-Rustic House in Amsterdam has been cleverly designed and transformed by John Guy van Keulen, featuring layer upon layer of fresh, soothing whites. (This chic abode was initial spotted on the vtwonen blog web site.)
The magic right here lies within the stylization of extreme materials–exposed steel beams dressed with distressed woods fill these chill interiors. What a visual treat to see corrugated metal ceilings, against walls of warm old brickwork and painted wooden paneling.
The mix-and-match of doors in this dwelling is exceptional. For instance, the entrance welcomes with a French country wood and iron style. An adjacent set of double doors have been custom produced of glass and steel and pivot effortlessly among the hall and living area, creating privacy of sound although permitting the tiny spaces to stay in sight of every other.
The living area retains a focal point of a vintage fireplace hearth nestled into classic grey brick. Furnishings are created of plush white fabrics with fur throws or raw wood with sodered metal, creating for but yet another gorgeous contrast.
In the kitchen, reclaimed louvre shutters become doors to recessed storage and resonate against the smooth island of a thick white counter and bleached wood base. The dining table was also customized by the architect, a strong white-on-white piece flanked by designer chairs of the same clean hue. Sliding glass doors and clerestory windows balance the interplay amongst the all-natural light bouncing indoors and the beautiful views of greenery to the outside. A constructed-in fireplace sets the cozier tone, even though still remaining a contemporary addition to this breezy, culinary space.
Epoxy-coated concrete floors skim across the quaint interiors offering an sophisticated sheen, a distinctive juxtaposition to the concrete stucco walls which are designed to portray naturally irregular patterns that one would locate in much more ancient components. Basically divine!
The bedroom continues the blend of standard with designer furnishings with cotton whites, natural woods, even a serene rural artwork depicting antlers, making a soft black-and-white base. The bulb-on-a-wire pendant is wrapped around a perforated white steel beam, hanging gracefully over the bed. A freestanding white tub in the bath emulates a far more conventional version, and rests next to a window clad with rotating, vertical wooden slats.
The Industrial-Rustic Property is an intimate and airy contemporary dream residence with a cool vibe and white-hot design.
