Amsterdam, Netherlands - (BTT) If variety is the spice of life, your better be careful you don't burn your tongue on this charming streetscape. Six homes make up the block, each one different than the next in both size and palette. Even more impressive is the range of architectural styles to be found - nearly every window is unique, and tons of little ornamental details are just waiting to be discovered by those willing to look for them (and everyone reading this should). Yet despite all the differences, you'd be hard pressed to find a more harmonious arrangement of apartments anywhere.
