Design from A to Z: D is for Dutch

Share It

I’m going to let y’all in on a little secret. The Netherlands has become one of my editorial secret weapons here at Design*Sponge. All I have to do is scratch the surface of Dutch design to snag home tours for us all to ogle over, and voila, beaucoup artistic eye candy. The people who live there simply get it.

While the Dutch style has become synonymous with exterior characteristics such as gambrel roofs and symmetrical facades, today I’m giving some love to the inside of some of our favorite Dutch-style homes. Whether featuring delftware, the style’s iconic florals or being simply gorgeous, the smattering of homes we’re sharing with you today are sure to inspire you to bring a touch of Dutch into your own space. Click through to check them all out, and enjoy! —Garrett

P.S. Check out the first few styles in our Design from A to Z series here.
