The Wunderkammer

Our floral designer friends of The Wunderkammer (who created our stunning pop up garden during designweek in Milan this year) have a green and oh so inspiring house. Think ceramic cranes, green velvet, fluttering birds in the living room (not kidding) and colourful grotesque bouquets. You can find their botanical interior and many other creative dwellings in the book ‘Living in style Amsterdam’.
