my scandinavian home: A Dutch guest house with red floors and vintage touches

A Dutch guest house with red floors and vintage touches

Friday, 26 June 2015

Iiiiit's Friday - woohoo! I thought I'd celebrate with a flash of colour. Do you remember this striking Dutch home with red floors which we were all pleasantly surprised about? Well the architect and industrial designer owners have since moved and opened up their wonderful home as a guest house. The  'hostel in The Hague' was furnished by Holly Marder (in record time!) and the result is a bright fun space with cool vintage finds and a boho vibe. If I find myself in this Dutch city I know where I'll be staying, how about you?!

What do you reckon about those red floors?!

A note on where a few items are from: Dining room: vintage dining chairs / Eye Eye postermagazine holder. Bedroom 1: wicker love seat / black and white cushion/ walnut candlestick/ black patterned cushion. Bedroom 2: vintage lamp / wicker stool / granite blanket / patterned cushion / blue and white cushion.

Other fabulous Dutch homes here.

Holly has such a great sense of style, I love her bedroom (one of the most popular posts on here ever) and studio. She's also photographed this fab black and white home and a whimsical family home.

The beauty of jet lag (I arrived back from New York yesterday) is it's meant I've managed to creep downstairs first thing and create this post before my girls are awake. There's something great about these quiet hours with just my coffee, laptop and a chunky knit blanket! Do you ever work/ study at first light?

Oh and I'm sooo excited to introduce you to my new sponsor Yorkelee today. Yorkelee is an online shop selling unique, creative, affordable Scandinavian style prints for the home and for kids (check out Yorkelee on IG). It's almost like these prints are made for My Scandinavian Home, think monochrome and pastels. I've got my eye on the Ampersand, you can and Perfection Home prints. I hope you find something you love too.

Have a great couple of days and see you Monday! 

PS This weekend I'm holding a give-away with a talented German artist, so don't forget to stop by! 


  1. Me in person is not into red at all when it comes to interior, BUT I some kind of fancy this beautiful house anyway. Different and nice!

    Have a nice weekend!


  2. Beautiful! Grapefruit essential oil (smelled, not applied) is good for resetting circadian rhythms and doing away with jetlag!

  3. Thank you so much for featuring and supporting my work, Niki. Loved styling this cool guest house. Working with bright red floors was a rare challenge that certainly threw me outside of my comfort zone but I enjoyed creating the serenity in these images so much with nothing but some fresh linens and vintage finds. Take care and thanks again, Holly xx

    1. Hi Holly, can you tell me where the white and grey rug is from? I adore it and looking for something just like it. Thanks!

  4. That we'll designed interior is dreamy place to live in. I always admire minimalistic style with a bit of color. Can't stop watching pictures, they've great.
    I could imagine buubok's crochet lamp LUUNA in such interior.
    Thanks for inspiring me.

  5. Hii! This floor is a little bit bold for my liking but I love the house anyway! Please, could anybody tell me where I can get those beautiful birds ornaments? Thanks in advance!
