These beautiful images are from Scandinavian design company Muuto’s catalogue. The combination of the pastel tones with wood, white and lots of lights works really well. Adding pastel colored accessories give an interior a softer and feminine look.
Today a natural colored palette of white, wood and rattan. Such a wonderful combination! My favorites of these images are the top one from Dutch magazine VT Wonen (great styling) and the photo of that gorgeous kids bed from XO in my room which is entirely hand-made out of reclaimed wood.

Let me take you on a trip to France, the location of this gorgeous house! We go to Lourmarin to be exact. It is located in the heart of the Luberon which is a lovely area to visit, with lots of charming shops and restaurants. I love how this home has been renovated and decorated in a modern style, combined with traditional elements. The owners have restored this old house in a spirit of simplicity, paying particular attention to the notions of space, calm and light and using only pure natural materials such as stone, lime, concrete, wood and linen.
The house can be rented, you can find more information on this website.
Yesterday I showed you a lovely Ibiza house that is for rent. Today is about Ibiza style fashion! This look can be achieved by mixing bohemian style clothing with colorful accessories such as bracelets, scarves and bags. Below you can find some examples. You can find more Ibiza style fashion and interiors on my Pinterest board!
We Dutch people tend to complain about the weather but we have good reason for this: it has been raining non stop and Spring has never been so cold since 1984. Time to escape to sunnier places! For instance to these lovely houses on Spanish island Ibiza. Most of the summer houses featured here on my blog are not for rent. But good news, Can Sola and Casita Luna can be rented! You can find more information and images on my other blog The Travel Files. I started this blog a while ago but due to family circumstances I was not able to update it for a while but I will start blogging on a regular basis again.

Brût Amsterdam is a great new store in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Brût – French for raw- is the perfect word to describe their collection. Each product has a history, often initially not made to be used in homes. For example, parts of an old machine now function as a table stand. You can visit their bricks and mortar shop in Amsterdam or check out their ‘vintage industrials’ online.
