The Venetian light fixtures in our apartment have an elegance and style from an earlier era. You will not find one of these at Wolfers. Along with that older style is the unfortunate fact that it does not emit nearly enough light. Our apartment is kinda dim after the sun goes down. The days here are already quite long, but in the winter it could be kinda grim. I recommend modern ligtitng and lots of it; skip the old fashioned fixtures.
A lot of Amsterdam has a similar older design aesthetic, but our neighborhood, Oud Zuid (old south), is undergoing gentrification. I suppose we have this apartment because renting it became attractive to the landlady. There are scaffolds and workmen all over the place, and some of the townhouses, newly renovated, are being offered for over €1 million.
