a renovated barn in the netherlands


This neglected barn in The Netherlands has been beautifully renovated by Ina and Matthijs van Meijet Cruijsen. The living room (top image), as well as the rest of the house, is a great balance of rustic and contemporary. The large window offers a magnificent view over the Dutch countryside.


The combination of a modern lifestyle is reflected in the rustic ambiance of the house, especially in the kitchen (image below). Various materials and styles blend together in both rustic and contemporary. The bathroom (top right image) is located in the area were once hay was stored.

  5. I love the mix of natural wood and white! So clean and modern even though it is a rustic look. A lot of our new light fixtures are the same natural wood look, but not sure how long it may last!
