A 1960's bungalow gets a make-over

How about something a little different today? The interior design brief behind this 1960's bungalow in Holland was to create somewhere humble and back to basic - preferably with a hint of a holiday feel. Dutch designers Studio Slow (you might recognise the name from this fab workspace tour) hit the spot using an abundance of pure materials to create a living space which is characterised by its lack of  doors and large windows which flood the space with light. The result is a warm and inviting family home - with a lovely unique and personal touch.

What a great space! I know it's only a small part of the design but I love the kitchen sink curtain - it ties in nicely with the 'back-to-basic' vibe and yet also adds a soft touch to the space.

Is there anything that catches your eye?

Get the look: office space - Eames wire chair, Octo pendant light. dining area - tulip table and the DCW chair is similar. Kitchen - pick-up beautiful vintage chopping boards here, vintage school poster. Update - the Copenhagen poster by Ferm Living can be found here!

If you'd like to see a little more interior inspiration that features lots of wood today you can always check-out this archive (I particularly like Holly's calm, natural kitchen, the cosy home of a Norwegian blogger and a converted merchant builder's garage in Melbourne.

Oh and you can see more of the residential work by the wonderful Studio Slow here (don't miss this farmhouse kitchen!).

Have a great day!

PS I don't usually talk numbers, but I was thrilled to see the My Scandinavian Home instagram feed reach 100,000 followers yesterday - weeeeeee! It's kind of exciting and yet terrifying to put yourself out there in the public sphere (I'm in awe of all the artists, musicians, writers and other creatives who do this on a daily basis). And I'd like to say a huge thank you to you all for your amazing support and for making the feed what it is (it wouldn't be anything without all your interesting comments, thoughts and ideas!). Here's to many more Instagram moments to come!


  1. I love the built in shelving in the dining area with the Copenhagen print, do you know where it's from? And the towel holder in the bathroom, if only I had the space for it, its beautiful

    1. The built in shelving is lovely! And good news - I just found the Copenhagen poster. It's by Ferm Living. I have updated the post with a link! :)

  2. I love the small emerald thing in the last picture, I can't quite tell if it is a small vessel or what it is, but the colour is so vibrant. I used to have emerald turtle when I was young (it could be opened) and I wish I still had it. It had the same beautiful emerald-y colour and it was quite nicely made in general. I have no idea what happened to it.

    Congrats on the 100,000 followers! I always look forward an MSH update in my feed.

    1. I love emerald too. It's funny how you can have things when you were younger and they mean so much even later on in life. I used to have a ceramic 'dog' money box in emerald green and it was pride and joy! PS Thank you for your lovely words about my updates!

  3. Bungalow is always one of the most wonderful home design concepts. I love it so much.
    Your collection and combination really inspired me. Thanks a lot.

    1. I wish I was behind the design behind this lovely bungalow but all credit goes to the talented team at Slow Studio :)

  4. Congrats! Love following you on IG!

  5. I like the concept, the colors, the textures and all of it. I hope I can integrate these things to my home. I know house planning is not easy and there are lots of consideration but still I will give it a shot! I want to fulfill my dream!

  6. I like the picture number 2, it reminds me of my dad, he used to make me like that

  7. Interesting! I love to see these make overs done in our house. Recently, we inquired for a house plan from TopNotch to help us make some changes and improvements. I hope we can get it the soonest and apply these make overs of yours.
