Steal This Look: An Island Cabin in the Netherlands
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
The ultimate rustic retreat? A cabin that can only be reached by boat and has no WiFi and no kitchen appliances (save for a propane camp stove). Judith Spruijt and Arnold van der Molen bought their cabin in 2006, when a friend tipped them off to a tiny cottage located on a a four-acre plot on a small island between Amsterdam and the Hague. The couple turned the cabin into a retreat for their nautically oriented family (their children are avid sailors); here's how to recreate the look: Above: Photo via Interior Magasinet .
