Last February Hertta & I travelled to Amsterdam to visit my old and dear friend Maikki. Maikki studied Fashion Merchandise Management in London and is currently working in Amsterdam. It was quite difficult to find an apartment to rent in Amsterdam so Maikki decided to buy one at the Oud-West area.
At the moment I am again in Amsterdam and staying with Maikki for three weeks.
I just fell in love with Maikki's apartment and I see why she ended up buying this one. The building is really narrow as they are in Holland. The house was built in 1906. There are four apartments in this building.
There are 57 m² that covers two bedrooms, a kitchen, a dining room and a living room. Top it all off there are two balconies and big windows.
I remember Maikki had a great sense for style and interior decorations when we were younger. Her first apartment in Töölö was unique and characteristic. Then she moved to London, there I never went to visit her but when she moved to Zürich for work I stayed with her. Her apartment was beautiful and she had the same Marimekko curtains Carrie Bradshaw had in her apartment in Sex and the City. But this apartment in Amsterdam is way more nicer than the ones before. She also lived in Hong Kong but there I never visited (though we went to Kuala Lumpur together at that time).
