A HOME IN AN OLD CHURCH IN THE NETHERLANDS

I am not sure if it is the same in other countries but here in The Netherlands, because of decreasing numbers of church goers, a lot of churches are being rebuild to houses. This has also been the case with this beautiful Dutch home. Living in a former church requires a different approach to decorating than with a standard house as rooms can be large and ceilings are high. The owner of this home have 450 m² of living space and they have used large furniture pieces to fill the rooms. The result is a very unique home with lots of character and history.

  4. Good morning Danielle,
    I am a true addict of your blog and I am following it daily. Thanks for doing it !
    This time I was wondering where the wood table in these nice pictures is coming from. As I am French and do not speak Dutch, I was wondering if you could be so kind to let me know if you can find the brand of it in the credits ? Thank you very much

  5. @ Nathalie, I am happy to hear that you enjoy reading my blog! I have checked but unfortunately I could not find who made the wooden table. My guess is that it is specially made by a carpenter as it is a very large size. Often people design their own table and have these made by a craftsman.

  6. Very cool layout. I also love the arches! The shower looks absolutely exquisite. Showers with lots of room are always the best. That’ll be the next addition in our home!

    Great blog!
    Brendon

  7. The grey yet modern aesthetics are sooo gorgeous!! I never would have thought to use those colours together. Although I am pretty design dumb haha!
    Thanks for sharing, got lots of inspiration for my new dining room.
