schoolhouse rocks.

The school bell no longer sounds here, but this renovated kindergarten is still an education in what can come from a great imagination and a little inspiration. The building is from 1894, a former kindergarten in Haarlem, just west of amsterdam, but it’s been transformed into a gorgeous light-filled family home. Featured in vtwonen, the entire home is stunning, but i fell for the eat-in kitchen area and those floor to ceiling frech doors out to their secret garden space. i could see starting the day here with a nice cup of coffee and the intention of a full day of work — and then never leaving. thank goodness for laptops.

    Nice to see this beautiful house in my home town. One note: Haarlem is not in Amsterdam, but is a city west of Amsterdam. In The Netherlands.

  2. Wow I’m in love with the indoor-outdoor feel of the dining area. The wall of windows and that sweet patio are heavenly! I agree – one cup of coffee and I’d never leave :)

    The blend of modern with a hint of rustic is perfect here!

    I just visited Haarlem for the first time last month, and really loved taking a peek into one of it’s homes!
