Hi! I am, predictably, playing catch up again with my reviews. Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie sent me her recent prefab release, The Bloemendaal. This is a very clean-lined neutral modern from the outside, but the light and shadow detail inside really make it come to life!

The first time I reviewed Dutchie on this blog, I commented on the lack of shadow and depth in the textures. That is absolutely no longer the case! Froukje has really upped her game, and what I've seen from her shop in the past few months has been really wonderful texturing and baked finishes. Speaking of textures - it can't really be captured in a photo, but the pool uses an animated texture that really looks like sunlight glinting off the water. I love it!

I really like the little foyer area - complete with coat rack AND coats. :) The foyer opens to the back of the house, and also has a door off to the left to take you to the bedroom. (wink, wink) If you head to the back, there's an open living/dining area that leads to the back deck and pool, as well as a room just perfect for an office space.

All the furniture/decor shown here comes with the house, OR you can purchase it unfurnished. There's a great little kitchen, as well, and I really like the furniture and accessories featured in there. The island is so cute - I'm a sucker for kitchen islands!

The house is a single bedroom layout - although I'm sure you could use the office as a bedroom if you wanted - with a nice, large spa-style bathroom. I applaud the use of dark wood on the one bathroom wall - it really warms up the neutral palette in there.

That's the Bloemendaal - definitely a recommended must-see if your tastes are more modern.

See it at Dutchie! [SLurl]
