simply color: kirsten voortman

Designer Kirsten Voortman uses bright colors throughout her exciting Amsterdam home. The white floors in this room really make the colors pop! I’m so inspired by the variety of different patterns, textiles and artwork. The toile wallpaper around the mantel is my favorite part of this room; it subtly ties everything together. I hope you enjoy this happy rainbow palette, and be sure to check out the rest of Kirsten’s house in her original sneak peek. — Lauren
