my scandinavian home: A fuss-free and laid back Dutch home

A fuss-free and laid back Dutch home

Wednesday, 18 May 2016

When it comes to a natural flair for design the Dutch have it in lorry loads. I can't tell you how many Dutch homes I've shown on here over the years - all of them fabulous!  This home of interior designer Marieke Rusticus which she shares with husband Eddy, children Mees and Eefje and English basset hound Simon is a fine example. Located in Zwolle, it's fuss free and relaxed, and decorated with muted tones and natural materials throughout. I especially love the use of wood on the top floor - so inspiring!

Home-owner Marieke Rusticus. Shared with kind permission.

What a wonderful home, don't you think?! I especially like the bespoke floor to ceiling storage in the bedroom made by Marieke's brother.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look: dining area: grey sheepskin cushion (I just discovered this etsy shop too which not only sells sheepskin throws but wonderful rugs too), demi-john. Vintage industrial folding metal chairs (I also love this chair). Sitting room - butterfly chair, white sheepskin throw, Trash me table lamp. Source a letter 'e' here. Kitchen - the units are from IKEA, white kettle. Upstairs: Eames RAR rocking chair.

You can keep up to date with Marieke's work on her blog or over at Instagram (love her feed).

Oh's the link to the Dutch homes I've shown on here once again...lest you need a little more inspiration today!

Have a lovely day!
