my scandinavian home: A home with red floors - with surprising results!

A home with red floors - with surprising results!

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

It's not often you come across a home with bright red floors throughout, even in Holland where there's a general love of vibrant pops of colour (alla this and this home). I was sceptical I must say, but when I took the tour of the home (beautifully captured by Holly and Jansje) I was pleasantly surprised. Owners Sanne (an industrial designer) and Tim (an architect), bought this lovely space by the sea in The Hague back in 2013 and set about renovating it one design move at a time. They've filled the house with vintage treasures and upcycled furniture collected over the years (the shelves in the sitting room are made from reclaimed stair treads!) as well as the odd modern find. The result is a relaxed, eclectic and vibrant family home. Let's take a tour...

Wow! What a lovely home. I love the quirky touches and blend of old and new. And of course their cute children!

And what did you make of the painted red floor?

I had the pleasure of meeting Holly and Jansje when they came to photograph my home last year. Such a talented duo! Other spaces shot By Jansje include Tina Fussell's lovely Danish home (also styled by Holly) and a Dutch home in a former children's nursery.

If you fancy a little more beautiful Dutch inspiration today, there's also a whole archive to explore here (scroll passed the first one as it might be this home), I do love a dose of Dutch style, don't you?

Have a lovely day!

  5. Woohoo, thank you for posting this lovely space! It's a great feeling to see somebody else has got a vibrant floor colour as well. I have painted my bedroom floorboards yellow ( F & B ).

  6. Fabulous. Many years ago I had a Marley tiled floor in my kitchen with red apples all over it. I adored and still miss it. Colour can be so amazing and so much fun :)
