The Amsterdam Rental, Herenstraat Apartments
This is going to be my best year yet. After FB’s Breast Cancer Campaign where women announced a trip to Europe, I decided to do it for real. It just felt that good. I originally announced that I was going to live in Paris for 5 months through FB…so the next week, I decided that I was going to live in Amsterdam for a month. DH bought me business class tickets directly from Vancouver, and I will be meeting up with him in Paris and LIege.
Until then, I will be working hard to take the whole month of March off. I have a private workshop weekend in February, an install and photo shoot planned for January, and a crapload of renderings to do…and it’s the first Christmas I haven’t gone to mom’s…so the kids are coming here for the holidays, and it will be a full house. Life is good.
Excited for a client who’s inspections are around the corner, and can see the drywall at the end of the tunnel…lol. This project is a good lesson in upgrading without tearing the whole house down. Just by removing two walls in the breakfast/family/hall area and updating finishes, the flow and site lines are so improved!! Cant wait to see this one completed…they so deserve it. Time to get shopping ;)

Blinds…check…A/V…check…kitchen dwgs …check…laundry room floor …check…now I know how my clients feel…I am so impatient!
This little area off the kitchen has become one of my favourites because of the light and site lines.
Right now, I am having a dining chair dilemma…textural?…chrome to match barstools?…armchairs?…upholstered?…comfortable?…modern?…something my dad can relate to? Lots of styles work with Live Edge tables…I am looking at either the Nelson Swag leg in white with chrome legs or wicker tub chairs to match existing ones or Klismos style chrome chairs with white leather seats. I’ve also thought of upholstered wing chairs for the ends with the Klismos chairs, but don’t want to obstruct the view. Thoughts?
I think I am leaning towards the Klismos…love the bling!
