It is a sunny afternoon as I pass the last bridge before entering the newly restored Pulitzer Amsterdam, a kooky hotel that places the spotlight on art and design. The brickwork of the cobblestone streets has just been laid.The hollow sound that my footsteps make follows me to the front door. The reception area is an elegant contrast of calming colours set against the largely gold frames of the sober coloured canvases, a grey concrete wall forms the contemporary backdrop of the reception desks, some decorated with Delft Blue earthenware—an amiable wink to Dutch history.
