Dirk Jan carefully selects the projects that he is passionate about since in each of them he leaves his whole soul. This eclectic interior design turned out to be a place of risky monochrome-ness with the exact dose of maximalism and a spark of madness.
In the Neo-Gothic breakfast room, there’s a wallpaper by Pierre Frey, vintage chairs and Tulip-style table in wood from the Lagunilla market in Mexico City. The house where the iconic Dutch designer lives, was built in 1869.
The designer says that “After half an hour I can not be myself if it’s something pretentious, it’s not for me”, and that is extremely noticeable in this interior design, not in a bad way. The not so subtle “simplicity” of this entire eclectic interior design makes this house such a fun place to live in.
The residence with such a modern design is composed of a neo-Gothic kitchen with breakfast bar, a large main hall, and a second room. That same floor houses the dressing room, the bathroom, the master bedroom with a patio and the “wild” room – as he calls it – that is constantly changing its purpose. All the divisions have one thing in common, the extravaganza and colorful designs.
In the upper part of the house with a very eclectic interior design, there is a bright penthouse for visits. The deep blue and bright and warm orange tones dominate in its divisions. Every two or three months Dirk completely transforms the space with new interior design ideas with a renovated proposal of colors and patterns.
