My Houzz: Warm tones of copper soften a robust city apartment

What Houzz contributors are saying:

It’s hard to imagine, but this wall used to be covered with a floor-to-ceiling built-in wooden bookcase, made by the former owner. “There also used to be a door, but our contractor, René Koomen, opened up the space,” de Zwart says.Instead of concealing the central heating pipelines, de Zwart chose to make use of them in the design, painting them in a copper hue. Now they add a subtle industrial feeling to the space.On top of the TV console is another of de Zwart’s window finds. “I used to live in the red light district, where I often passed a window of a creative gallery with this particular piece on display,” he says. One day de Zwart decided to ask whether he could buy it. “The statue was not for sale, but after some bargaining I became the proud owner. There was one condition though: I could only have it if I wouldn’t transport it in a box, and if I would carry it with its face forward. So that’s what I did.”TV cabinet: Sideboard, BoConcept
