Making a home truly your’s is a very personal process. In most cases it means arranging your belongings in a certain way or painting rooms a color you love. For home owners Joris Brouwers and Nicky Zwaan it meant taking matters into their own hands; designing, building, and furnishing their house themselves. The final home certainly stands out from the block, as you can see above, and the inside is like a secret getaway you want to explore.
Their home is a lovely mix of polished concrete, warm, wooden details, and lots of indoor plants, which to me is the perfect blend. I’m also smitten with the gigantic windows that sit on the back of building, allowing for tons of light to pour into the space. I’m also in love with the faceted face of the apartment building and it’s weathered concrete face. There’s a wabi sabi vibe happening there that you can’t fake, it’s too good.
