Sleep in style in Amsterdam

I have the pleasure of working for the coolest interior magazine the Danish RUM. Sorry for not being more modest, but it's just a fact:-)

If you happen to be in Denmark you should take a look at the March issue, which focuses on the ever-interesting link between interior design and fashion. I have written about two very chic Amsterdam hotels, which take fashion to a new level. 
Like they say at The Exchange Hotel "Sleep in fashion, wake up in Style". The 61 have all been refurbished and dressed up as models on a catwalk. The design duo Suzanne Oxenaar and Otto Nan and a group of students have played with weird and wonderful ideas and a whole lot of fabrics. You can sleep under an enormous crinoline and go to bed next to a wall with sleeves. Prices from 100 Euros.
If you fancy a smaller guesthouse, which seems to be a new trend, you can check in at Maison Rika. Yes, Rika, the understated urban cool label with the star bags. The designer Ulrika Lundgren spotted a little star on the windows on a sweet townhouse gallery just opposite from her design studio and that was the a clear sign. She had found the right location for her two-bedroom guesthouse, which oozes of her playful and sleek style. Art, fashion, soft white beds, black wooden floors, quirky details as insect in frames all come together in Maison Rika. 
Price pr room: 200 Euros.
