A muscled up floor whose strength is its beauty

Private residence, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands

Often it’s the colour of the walls, the size of the windows or the furnishings that give a room its signature look. Or a combination. Sometimes, as in this home in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (more commonly shortened to Den Bosch), it’s the floor that snaps us out of our reverie and makes us alive to our environment. Seeking something bold yet beautiful? The solution: Chapel Minster Howden. Muscled up with extra wide planks for an even stronger impact.
