An Inspiring Dutch Home With Colourful Accents

Hejsan hoppsan! My family and I are staying in Torekov this week, a little fishing village on Sweden's West coast where we're on eat, sleep, repeat mode with a little beach life thrown in for good measure (just how summer days should be spent, don't you think?!). Let's hope the sun shine's on Sweden's football team this afternoon for their world cup bid too (heja Sverige!). Even so, I thought we'd venture to Leeuwarden Holland today and a take a tour of the lovely home of Marrit de Lang. Marrit is a photographer, blogger and mum to little Mia and has decorated her house in a mix of design pieces and high street finds against a back drop of earthy tones including plum, powder, grey and blue. Welkom!

Such an inspiring home, I particularly love the colours!

Is there anything that stood out to you?

See more of Marrit's home on her blog: Done By Myself and Instagram. And a lorry load of beautiful Dutch homes in this archive.

I'd love to linger and I did promise to share a few more shots from Gen's sitting room today as well as a round-up of all the details - but I have two little girls standing next to me in their bathing suits, towels slung over their shoulders, eagerly waiting to head to the beach! Better go!

Have a lovely, bright, sunshiny day!
