Maison Rika, Amsterdam

Swedish designer Ulrika Lundgren patterned the concept of this cozy, two-room hotel in Amsterdam after her home. The ground floor is a lifestyle store that can be used as a gallery space; Rika Boutique is located across the street. The second and third floors each house a single en-suite room with views over the Herengracht canal. A palette of black, gray and white sets a modern tone, and the original art—by Sang Ming and John Derian—pops against the black-painted wooden floors. Rooms start at $270; Oude Spiegelstraat 12; 31-20/330-1112; rikaint.com.
