Amsterdam in Black and White

The next stop in the Netherlands takes us to Amsterdam. Here are a few of the building facades that Lauren found inspiring...

Notice the Dutch gable and all it's adornment. The purest example would have a scalloped/curved eaves that lead up to a pediment.

Renaissance inspired, the large windows above the doors are much more florid in decoration and detailing than a typical transom window. 

 Here is a minimalist approach to dutch architecture.

Shutters at their best!

Thanks Lauren and Hailey for the great images! More to come from Amsterdam....
