All Black Everything

Amsterdam, Europe, The Netherlands

I fell in love with every little crooked black row house in Amsterdam. Every. Single. One. They’re perfect and just so me. I feel like I would be happy everyday that I live in a black house, haha. Being a little more serious, I heard that traditionally some residents would prefer to seal their brick façade with tar, hence the black color that is prevalent in the whole city. If you get close up, you can actually tell which are painted with tar, due to a slight purple tint, and which are just black paint. Either way, I want one. For myself. To grow old in.

Here are a handful of the row houses along Bloemgracht.
