Pack your bags, today we are heading out to the Netherlands!  The Villa Aan De Vect is a beautiful modern home designed by the architectural firm HOGO from Helmon, in the Netherlands.  The home, inside and out, incorporates the clean lines and neutral tones that we’ve come to expect from modern design.  However, the designers were able to sprinkle in a few traditional elements such as muted still-life paintings, representational sculpture, and a reclaimed wood table that could hold the dinner conversation all on its own.  The Villa Aan De Vect transitions between traditional and modern style with an elegant ease — both time periods resting comfortably on the strong shoulders of great design.

Attention to material: clean stainless steel transitions into the meandering veins of marble as your eye moves around the kitchen.

Still-life: These paintings bring a sense of grounded calm to the modern, hard-edged, cabinets and island in the kitchen.
