    No, not my thing - especially that disco ball-esque light fixture next to the staircase.

    I absolutely love the rustic details... I do agree with Laurent, though.. that weird iridescent discoball-looking thing doesn't go with the surroundings..

    Me too. I don't know why but people either stick to bland and boring neutrals or they go berserk with way too much colour. There is a happy medium but you seldom see it. I love that bathroom floor.

    I absolutely lovelovelove it! The only things i'd change is that i'd take down that cheesy light fixture, and maybe add a splash of color to a couple of walls.

    Reserved, genteel, English Country House feel. I wouldn't live in it (love the property tho) but I can appreciate it.

    Default A converted chapel, like it?



    The converted chapel in question is located in Utrecht, Netherlands, and a single family now calls it home.
    At its height, in the mid-20th century, the structure was part of a large housing complex for the Friars of Utrecht, housing a total of 217 residents. When 13 elderly friars moved to a nursing home, the complex was split up and converted into 40 apartments. According to Freshome:
    "The design team chose to keep many of the original features like the high gothic stained glass windows and the original choir organ. To allow more light to enter the space, they cut a Mondrian-inspired glass window into the front of the house facing the street perhaps paying homage to Rietveld’s nearby infamous Schroder House. The entire living area has been whitewashed, while the private spaces above were painted dark."

    yes, now this one i like; much better than the converted church in the other thread from a few days back.

    love the minimalist decor & how the stained glass windows are one of the few punches of color. i LOVE the floating staircase, too. i'd live there if it weren't for that big old cross hanging over the door.

    I thought his home had been converted into a hotel of sorts?

    Hotels With A Past

    But Wait—There's More
    Find other great ideas in these related stories:

    THE FASHION HOUSE: Casa Casuarina
    Where: South Beach, Miami
    What it is: A private club and hotel on Ocean Drive
    What it was: Gianni Versace's showplace villa

    The story: The most infamous residence in Miami was built in 1930, supposedly modeled after the house in Santo Domingo where Christopher Columbus's descendants once lived. Versace purchased it in 1992 for $2.9 million so he could be right in the center of the South Beach scene. He decorated it in his inimitable Italianate style, complete with frescoes, fountains, and elaborate mosaics—then bought and demolished the hotel next door to build an equally swish extension. If you think Versace's taste in interiors was over the top, it was rivaled in decadence by his legendary soirees, attended by the likes of Madonna (Versace built a red and gold suite just for her), Naomi Campbell, and Elton John. In 2000, three years after the designer was murdered on the front steps, a telecom billionaire bought the house and converted it into a members-only club and exclusive 10_room hotel. The opulently decorated suites are perfectly suited for the debauchery of South Beach: carved marble tubs, massive wooden headboards, stained glass windows, a bed (in Donatella's old room) that sleeps at least five.

    Be sure to check out: The mosaic pool and garden, where thousands of tiles were hand-laid into the pattern of Versace's Medusa-head logo.
