House of Droog



This is the lovely light filled, playful home of dutch design giant Droog founder Renny Ramakers  and can be found on the banks of one of Amsterdam’s canals.

I love the homely way colourful possessions are dotted around the large white space interspersed with Droog’s own designs. I like that this home looks fun and functional, rather than a showroom for the brand’s products.

My favourite elements within the home have to be the ornate metal pillars that hint to the origins of this old building on the canal, and its glorious mezzanine library!
