    No-it looks half moved into. I don't love it.

    As a standard town house it's really nice, it would be easy to warm up the place with wooden floors, I really like the rooms proportions (with a special mention for the right ceiling height) and the open flow design with some nook and cranies. The only problem are the large bay windows on the street, some kind of exterior venetian blinds could improve it

    I don't feel I'd ever be able to relax in here. Way too white and boring.

    love the house itself and i agree with lalala about the room sizes, ceiling heights, detailing, etc.. and especially about the wood floors - a nice parquet would make a world of difference.
    i'd also change the furniture and artwork colours cause these people have crappy taste in sofas and chairs, with the exception of the panton but i don't like it in black.
    i love the big mirror in the bedroom. that's a great touch.

    I like it - it's light and airy and not oppressively minimalist.

    that's IJburg. the IJ is a diphthong. Therefore the whole thing must be capitalised.

    I'm Dutch. I know these things.

    Leaning mirrors bug me. I like a well hung mirror. When they lean, your reflection makes it appear as if you're falling over.

    Of course it's Dutch, I knew there had to be a reason for the unobstucted street bay windows - look-at-me-how-I live-inside-my -house-everybody-I've-nothing-to-hide-I-swear is the essence of dutchiness

    Do you know Gerben Hockman? He's Dutch.
