For many years I had the idea in my head to use branches as a handrail for our stairs. The project was not easy to execute as we had to find suitable branches which were long enough and had the right curves (sort of a needle in a haystack..). We asked a carpenter if he could make the handrail and the next weekend he found these branches on a beach. They were perfect for our staircase! Previous tours around my home: our living room, our kitchen, our garden, our bathroom, our master bedroom, Kick’s bedroom and playroom.

This beautiful modern home in the charming village of Girona in the North of Spain can be renting for holidays. Architect Anna Noguera converted this medieval townhouse Alemanys5 into two spacious, amazingly designed apartments with lots of character. El Badiu is a duplex of 180 m2 on the upper floors, with a master suite, 2 extra bedrooms, a large living room with fireplace and a spectacular terrace facing south, with exclusive views over the old medieval city. El Jardí is an apartment of 90 m2, with two double bedrooms, a spacious bathroom, a large living room with an integrated kitchen and a pleasant private garden with sun terrace and pool.
A Dutch family has trade their Amsterdam inner city home for this stunning villa in the countryside on Ibiza, Spain. I love the decor which is a well balanced mix of design classics, vintage items, custom made furniture pieces and a little bit of fun kitsch.
