Echt HEMA

“Your taste changes every 7 years” I heard someone saying today.

Well, I don’t know about you, but it’s more like 7 times a year for me! I still love pink, I honestly do. But when I was shopping in the HEMA this afternoon, I just had to buy these coral pillowcases.

I love the bright colour and the graphic print. I bought some coral coloured candles as well, and voilá: a new look of the living room in just a few seconds!

By the way: what do you think of this awesome rug? Instant summer inside, right? : )

Apartment in Utrecht – the results

It is about time to show you some results of this project in Utrecht– as mentioned earlier!

I personally like the apartment for its great view and a lot of daylight coming in. The design and furnishing are kept relatively calm to highlight the large space. The colour scheme in the living room is quite neutral with its wooden floor, grey sofa and wooden accents. The painting (made by the mother of a friend) and the colourful candles, gathered on a tray, providing some extra personal touch.

DIY: Happy Summer Tree

While thinking of a way to make our terrace summer proof, I remembered my CANDLE TREE of 2 years ago. As I very much enjoyed the colourful burning lights during summer nights, I´d like to share this DIY with you. 100_2159

Fleur is a very creative person and that’s why her house is always changing. I think I could do a photo shoot in her home every month –and it would look different every time! This season definitely has a touch of pink, as the couple is expecting a baby girl. Lees verder

Guest Blog : Scandinavian Looks for the Holiday Season

Hello, hello! It’s Mari here with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog. It’s a wonderful place to find interior design inspiration including great decorating ideas for everything from beautiful mini pendant lights to cozy rugs for the floor.

Today, let’s talk about the holiday season, specifically decorating with a Scandinavian look for the holidays. From the front door to the living room, dining room and kitchen it’s simply fun to go for Scandinavian style in white on white rooms. Here are seven spaces to inspire holiday decor. Please enjoy!

~ Mari

A traditional white Scandinavian kitchen is dressed up for the winter holidays. From delicate evergreen garlands to a lovely little candlelit tree in a galvanized bucket, this room is both beautiful and inspiring:

1 Scandinavian Holiday

Scandinavian holiday style is all about natural elements, evergreen boughs, pinecones, tiny trees and often, lovely white forced bulbs:

2 Scandinavian Holiday

This charming space is decorated in white and shades of gray, so it’s easy to add holiday touches—a little potted tree by the door, greenery and candles in the windows along with a three-dimensional star:

3 Scandinavian Holiday

Mercury glass takes center stage in this Scandinavian living room with a little collection of candlesticks and lovely tree ornaments. Isn’t the greenery-entwined “chandelier” beautiful hanging low over the coffee table?

4 Scandinavian Holiday

A long table with white cloth is all set for a holiday dinner near the Christmas tree trimmed with simple white ornaments and lights. You’ll notice the table decor includes a collection of tiny trees:

6 Scandinavian Holiday

Lots of white flowers are placed around this living room done in white with black accents. Black glass globes are interspersed with gold and white ornaments on the live tree—so pretty:

Lastly, we return to the kitchen. This space with a single element, a delicate ribbon-hung circle of greenery, illustrates how one simple touch can infuse an interior space with a sense of the holidays to come. Little lanterns serve as kitchen lights under the open shelves while candles are lit around the room:
