Industrial X Design | A dream home in a former Milk factory

Some years ago when making plans for my kitchen I saved a picture on my laptop because I really loved how the home owner covered up the kitchen hood. This last Sunday.... years later, I had a wonderful dinner in that same kitchen!

Mary Hessing, editor in chief of Dutch magazine Eigen Huis en Interieur opened her home for WOTH |week only treasure hunt|during Designkwartier at the Hague. WOTH is a temporary department store with both Dutch and Scandinavian design by Kvadrat, Piet Hein Eek, Studio Job, NLXL, Leff Amsterdam and many more… and a selection of food and art, carefully curated by Mary and presented in a refurbished 19th century milk factory where she and her family lives.

I fell in love with the large doors revealing the original 'street' where for many years the milk distribution cars left the factory to deliver milk at home, the A.M.A.Z.I.N.G steal windows at the entry and around the patio, the concrete floors, the food and the original tiles on the walls. This was the kind of home I wanted to stay forever and go home at the same time to change everything around and start cooking pure and lovely food.
