For most of us living in Amsterdam, the beautiful buildings along the historic canal ring are nothing but an open-air museum, subject to contemplation and dreams of maybe living there one day. To have the chance to actually set foot into one of them is a totally different story, an occasion you have to grasp whenever offered to you.
When I was invited to take photos of such a house on the Herengracht, I obviously said yes. The owners, a friendly gay couple who like to call themselves De Heren, opened the doors to their gorgeous home for me and by doing so probably had no idea they were setting me for an unforgettable experience. Style, sophistication, comfort, and the emblematic view over the canals of Amsterdam – this is how I would summarize it.
