It is time for another tour around my home! Today I am showing you our living room. We have an open plan living area and kitchen. Our home is about 100 years old and used to be an small farm. So a very modern interior does not fit here. The interior is a mix of vintage and modern with lots of natural materials. I would describe the look as rustic chic. We have used vintage kelim cushions, a vintage rug, wooden accessories such as a wooden stool, aboriginal paintings from Australia, dining chairs from Piet Hein Eek and the rattan pendants lights are from IKEA. The lovely lantern lights in the last image are made from recycled confiture jars. Next time I will be showing you our kitchen (you can see a glimpse of it in the second photo). Other tours around our home: our kitchen, our garden, our bathroom, our master bedroom, Kick’s bedroom and playroom.

  • Soooo very beautiful!!
    I’m wondering if you could tell me about the finish you have on the floor boards? Are they Oak with a white wash? Do you know if they have been oiled or varnished? They look stunning. I’m hoping to achieve a similar finish with American oak, but the oil finish on the sample looks too dry / raw & unfinished, any info you can provide would be really appreciated!
    Thanks for sharing. Kate

  • Hi Kate, Thanks for your comment! Our floor boards are Oak with a white wash (oil). We have them for about 6 or 7 years now. We do use a special cleansing soap which has white pigments in it so it not only cleanses the wood but give it a new layer of white wash every time you cleanse the floor.I hope this is helpful!

  • Hoi Danielle,

    Ik vind de toer door (en om) je huis echt heel leuk! Ik kijk nu al uit naar het volgende deel, de keuken. De witten en naturellen die overal terugkomen vind ik echt heel mooi. Fris en warm tegelijk, geen van beiden overheerst. Knap gedaan!

  • Gorgeous living area with a great vibe. Do you have any plans for the windows, curtains? Or is it a conscious choice to leave the windows bare?

  • Hi Danielle
    I really liked your dinner table, can you please tell me what kind of wood it’s made of?


  • Hi Matias, the table is made from reclaimed wood from houses in Croatia that were destroyed during the war. People injured as a result of the war made the table and because of this they can make an income despite their handicap. I guess the type of wood is oak.
