A Designer’s Delight in Amsterdam
During our layover in Amsterdam, with our growling stomachs desperately urging us to find a place to have breakfast, we came upon this quaint bakery. The seemingly endless choice of baked goods displayed in the window were enough to lure us in but, once inside, I almost jumped for joy in seeing the unique design! I mean – how can I not have an apple strudel in a place decorated with the “Feeling Papergood“ wallpaper by PiP Studio and recycled wooden crates as furniture?
For those of you who don’t know me – I love wallpaper! It’s one of my favorite elements to use when designing a room. I get a natural high looking through catalogue after catalogue of wallpaper (am I the only one or can anyone else relate?). Another element I also love to include in my designs is the use of recycled/refurbished/restyled vintage furniture – I believe this brings instant one-of-a-kind charm to any given space. So you can imagine my excitement when I walked into this bakery! Oh and the apple strudel and hot chocolate were pretty good also.
A Feeling Papergood Vignette
- a console table inspired by industrial crates but less rustic
- a curvy mirror – looks like a puffy pastry don’t you think?
- the robin’s egg blue chair brings in a touch of sophisticated fun
- the lamps are light and airy keeping everything in balance
- the faux sheepskin rug adds warmth – just like when you walk into a bakery!
To create a more serene space without visual overload, choose only one element to be the focal point – in this case the wallpaper steals the show with all the other elements complimenting it beautifully.
Here are some more luscious PiP Studio wallpapers (designed in The Netherlands – so appropriate for this post) – truly a feast for the eyes!
