my scandinavian home: A charming and relaxed Dutch home

A charming and relaxed Dutch home

Thursday, 12 February 2015

This lovely home by a canal in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, oozes charm and happiness. The family of four - Irene, her husband and two little girls - designed the living space themselves and centred everything around the home-made dining table where they like to gather. When Irene is not working as an assistant Product Manager she is busy hunting for flee market finds and working on cool DIY projects around her home which are documented on her blog. I love the relaxed, personal  feel of the space. It makes me want to embark on a few DIY projects of my own, how about you?

Anything that stands out to you in particular? 

I really like the kitchen dresser. Irene painted it in several colours before deciding on mint green (try Farrow & Ball Teresa's green or Pale Powder for a similar effect). Other Dutch homes with great examples of hand painted furniture include this and this home).

You can see more of this home captured by Celine Nuberg and a full write up (in Dutch) here.

Since we're going all out Dutch today - you might want to check out other fab homes from The Netherland's previously featured here including this, this and this one. I love the use of colour!

Have a lovely day!

PS I'm so pleased to see the return of wonderful sponsor Dorayaky, a shop selling 100% handmade bags. Each bag is designed and manufactured by the creative duo Auroro PĂ©rez and Fernando Albero in their studio in Valencia, Spain. The result is a range of personal handbags which capture their love for design and well-made objects.

  5. I think one of the washi taped pictures above the desk might come from Flow magazine. I have only read one edition, but I was so impressed that I bought (well asked for at Christmas) a subscription. It has that Scandinavian/Dutch design vibe too.
