This is new Amsterdam hotel Morgan and Mees. Isn’t it splendid? The parquet-floored townhouse is based in the Jordaan area of the city – an historical neighbourhood full of winding canals and tiny streets that are busy with handsome, classical architecture. Famously, this is the same area where the Anne Frank house is located and nowadays it’s the place to head to for Amsterdam’s best art scene, markets and restaurants. So we’re thrilled to report that Morgan and Mees is a place that one of our Caput rugs now calls home.
There it is, in one of the attic rooms, as full of character as the restaurant space downstairs and just on the right side of feeling like a home. After a good nosy around, we’ve also noticed that the hotel bathrooms look rather lovely – like the bedrooms, they are simply done. This looks like a nice place to hole up if you’re going for a city break.

Our rugs in your home
This month we were also delighted that lovely customer Alejandra shared with us on Twitter and Instagram her joy at receiving an Emily’s House London rug. Please do the same thing if you’ve bought something from us. It’s always fun to see where our pieces end up and how they are being used, and very often you inspire us with new ideas. In Alejandra’s home it seems the cat has become rather curious about the colours of her new Boucherouite and it looks like Alejandra is a fan of layering different carpets together, which is a great way of adding contrast and interest to a room.
Thanks Alejandra for sharing and if you’d like to do the same thing, make sure you tag us on Instagram.
