Dutch design

The purpose of this article is to show you that there is much more out there than Scandinavian living, which is indisputably the top trend right now. There is so much more than white floors, white walls, eclectic mix & match and colorful wallpapers. Don’t get me wrong – I like Scandinavian design but there is much more diversity out there and many more different trends which are worth presenting to the wider audience.

We live globally and trends are spreading across the world, more & more designers open their shops outside their own country.

Going through interior magazines every day, I find a lot of inspiring interior design sites & stores. Here in the Netherlands.
I must admit when I moved here 5 years ago, I didn’t like Dutch design at all – to much country style and very much like old-fashioned English style which, as British would say “is not my cup of tea”.

A lot has changed since then, there is more designer furniture available, and even the country style has more modern look now. I started liking Dutch design, for the atmosphere of coziness and intimacy, for it’s characteristic big furniture and natural materials like good quality wood. Lot of very interesting accesorries which add the character to the interior. Whatever direction you go, I suggest to create a modern base in neutral colors, then accessorize it to your style. Accessories create the style whether it is classic, country, chic/glamour, warm/earth style or highly modern.

There is a wide choice of shops which often give you an interior advice for the total concept of your home. A lot of customized furniture, made especially for the client, built-in cabinets, furniture which is matching exactly the size of the room, and for bigger budget – anything you want, only your imagination is the limit.

Here is an overview of just a few of those inspiring Dutch & Belgium brands.
