Loving the understated decor of this monotone colour scheme. This 85 square meter ground floor apartment is located in Amsterdam and belongs to Desiree from the Vosges Paris blog.

I love how this space is not bland or boring at all – just subtle and simple. Apparently the secret to making a home with lots of gray, white and black, not feel cold is to use various shades and finishes (glossy, matte, etc.) and to use lots of texture and mix in natural elements. You can spot everything in her home from recycled rubber to natural wood, vintage wood, fur, glass, concrete, metal, recycled wood, metal and paper which all add texture and life. A clever way to inject warmth into an otherwise cool palette.
