A BRIGHT & COZY ATTIC BEDROOM

Can you believe that this beautiful bright bedroom used to be a dark and cold attic full with stuff that wasn’t being used? By creating large windows and painting walls and floors white the attic space was transformed in a light and modern room. Beautiful!

TOUR AROUND OUR HOME: HANDRAIL MADE OF BRANCHES

style-files-home-branch-2

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.
