Bright & vintage house in Amsterdam

I usually combine thrifters and vintage collectors with dark and dusty homes, cluttered with hundreds of amazing yet forgotten treasures, piled one over the other. I'm not sure why that happens but thankfully there are brilliant exceptions to help me change my mind. Take, for example, this bright home in Amsterdam. A white background and a careful and sparse collection of furniture help this place look neat and tidy, although it brims with amazing finds of all sorts of styles, ages or colors. There is a trick that keeps the whole place together; thrifted items are kept together in collections instead of being scattered around the home. Ceramics are stored in view inside a (vintage, of course) glass cabinet, all the patterned pillows are on the sofa and the small canvas arts in one place on the wall. There is also lots of negative (=empty) space, left untouched, that helps create a feeling of smoothness and balance too. Most walls are kept without decoratives and there is no carpet on the floors whatsoever. I can easily picture myself living in this home. See, after the jump, more photos and tell me if you'd join me as well ^^

  4. It looks simple and beautiful but somethings ruin the look of the whole room, like the cabinet placed in the living room. The cabinet must be painted at least. Overall the home look beautiful, bright and shining. Selection of colors in interior designing is an important step and the white color is a king color that fits in almost every place. White color brightens the look of the home.
