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.
