This is one of those beautiful houses that, when you enter, you feel different. The colours, light, the furniture, the way in which every element of this home was considered in it’s elegant entirety; is transformative. A genuinely beautiful home and one that you could...More

Gorgeous Art Deco house in Dutch Art Deco style. Beautiful period interior and furniture. Take your time when doing the house tour. Especially the dining room and living room are stunning in my opinion. You can visit the garden as well. I must say that...More

The house is not in the centre, but the tram ride is worth the trip, from the maze in the garden to the horsehair wallpaper in one room, to the astonishing art and artefacts -- this was an art collector's house, and every space is...More

This is the former private house of a banker, where nothing has changed. The house combines art deco with the Amsterdam school, and comes fully furnished with the original furnishings, and loads of artwork. The latter is mainly by the hand of Gustave Van de...More

Quite fantastic place with a chance to feel like you are visiting the van Buuren's rather than the usual museum 'behind a rope' experience. My tip look at the very clever animated film that plays upstairs to learn about David and Alice and then take...More
