Remember this post? I can’t belief that already three years has gone by, time flies! Our sweet little boy has turned three a few days ago. That helpless little baby is now a big boy with with a mind of his own and lots of willpower. The Early Rider learner bike that we gave him for his birthday was a big hit! Not only is the wooden bike very stylish (I love the leather saddle!) but the bike is perfect for developing balancing skills. Happy birthday Kick!!



First of all, I’d like to wish you a happy summer! I hope you’re having a wonderful time with lots of fun, sunshine and quality time with loved ones and friends. I will continue blogging as usual but the style files will get a new design in a few weeks time. And I would like to ask you for your help. I would be grateful if you could let me know what you like best about the style files and which topics or styles you would like to see more. Would you like to see more fashion, do you want to know where you can buy similar products featured in the images, or perhaps you would like to read about more practical interior related things for example. Let me know so I can make the style files a better blog! You can leave a comment or send me an email (danielledelange [at] gmail [dot] com).



If you are used to read your favorite blogs with Google Reader you probably already know that this will no longer be possible from 1st July. I use Bloglovin (you can follow The Style Files here) and Feedly to get my daily dose of inspiration. New blog posts (and more) are also announced on Facebook and Twitter. On Instagram I am showing ‘behind the scenes’ images of my life and my house & garden. For more inspiration you can also follow my Pinterest boards. I am working on a new design for The Style Files which will allow you to subscribe to new posts and to a monthly newsletter. More about this in a few weeks time!

PS: I loving this idea of creating a table from magazines (images from Skona Hem). I’m not sure how stable this is, it might not be suitable in households with children and/or animals.



Last Friday, one year after my mother died, my father passed away. I am in complete shock, losing both my parents in one year is just too much to comprehend. I will continue blogging as I much need the distraction, but it might not be as frequent as normal. Take care and hug your loved ones.

hello australia! your help is needed..


We are thinking about escaping the Dutch winter and go to Australia in January. As we don’t have much time to plan the trip we need help from my lovely Australian readers and other Australia connoisseurs. We plan to fly to Sydney and move up the East coast probably all the way up to Cairns. Could you tell me what are the best places to visit? I will be travelling with my husband Ivar and 2 year old son Kick. I have been to Australia before but that was before I had a child (it was mainly party time!) so this time will be different. We want to stay in Sydney (or in the area) and also thinking about Noosa, Byron Bay etc. Any tips about places to stay, eat, play, go etc are very welcome and very much appreciated!!! You can leave a comment or contact me directly by email (danielledelange {AT} gmail {DOT} com). Also, if you are in Australia and in the area where we will be going please let me know if you’d like to meet up. We love meeting new people, and our son Kick LOVES to play with other kids!!


Update: thank you for all your comments and email! Your information has been very helpful; we have now decided to postpone our trip to October/November as this is a better season to travel to Queensland. I will keep you posted on our travel plans!

I am on holiday to Ibiza and Formentera in Spain enjoying the good life! I have some posts lined up for you so you will not notice that I’m gone but I will not respond to email or announce blog posts through the various social media channels. I will be posting some holiday snap shots though via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

I am leaving for a holiday on Ibiza and Formentera in two weeks time (hurray!). We have been to both islands before but it has been a while.
