Call me to make your dreams come true and design your house exactly as you want. As I manage the whole project, the stress will fall off your shoulders.
This roomy house, located in the green, peaceful town of Amstelveen, is one of the most outstanding projects of Berlinski design. Formerly an old grey house turned into a warm family home, it radiates luxury and extravagance alongside practicality and immense comfort.
This project was conducted in the house of Tamar Robin Star, the town of Zaandam, North-Holland. Tamar is a Standup comedian and Life Coach specializing in Trauma therapy. She sees her clients at home, so her home serves as her clinic.
The design was conducted over the house's first floor, mainly the living room and kitchen, producing substantial renewals.
The outcome made Tamar and her clients, too, feel so much at home. We asked her to tell us about her journey.
Sight Of Music
When I first saw this place before we launched the remodeling process, it was an old-fashioned house. It’s out-dated and somewhat uninspiring designed kitchen and rooms were colored with rather dull, brown hues. Overall, it had the looks of a place that desperately needed a revival.
I love giraffes, and elephants, and zebras, too. Did you notice the giraffe in my room? Every night when I go to bed, I say to him, good night, giraffe! I love my room because of this special bed which can be flipped over from a floor bed to a bunk bed, where I can make a tent underneath.
House of Cats
I’m Mia. I live in this nice blue house together with Tsip and Bolt. There is Maple too, but she is a dog. There are also the humans, two big and three smaller. I like them, they give me food. They kind of planned this entire house for me, isn’t that cool? They built a whole new shared bathroom for instance...
‘I went through a journey … ‘, says the owner when recalling the work process, ‘I learned about myself, what I like and what I dislike, and Zwia always managed to put me back on the right track while guiding me with my selections. She was strict and very transparent with me when needed.
The work of an interior designer is sometimes similar to that of a therapist or a marriage counselor. It addresses people's struggles and needs, handles their frustrations, and shares hopes for their house, their home.
My next-door neighbors went on a renovation process with the help of an interior designer. I like interior design, though I don't have much time dealing with it thoughtfully. The neighbor told me that they re-planned the space and dressed it up again. “We used most of our existing furniture, just placing it in a different layout”, she said.
Affordable Student Housing
Take a look at this cozy flat. Comfy and welcoming - probably not what you'd expect from student dorms. But living in dorms doesn't mean you need to live in a shack. We asked Rachel (25) and Michael (27) - a married couple, both students at Amsterdam University - to tell us about the remodeling process.
Mediterranean In Netanya
Can you envision redesigning your house when the interior designer you selected lives in a different country? This was the story of this apartment in the coastal city of Netanya, Israel. Everything you see here was designed, purchased, and placed without me actually being present during the process.
