Summer is in full swing and I hope all of you are having a wonderful time. In a couple of weeks we will be getting in Fall mode but before that I will be posting more gorgeous holiday homes and summer feeling posts. And I have some exciting news, I promised to show more of my home and I have worked with a photographer to create a home story of my home. This will be featured here on the style files next month but I will give you a sneak preview very soon. I am very happy with how the photos turned out and I can not wait to show them to you!
This lovely family home is situated in an old kindergarten in Haarlem, The Netherlands. The building, which has been extensively renovated, dates from 1894. The large windows and high ceilings give a light and airy feel to the rooms. There is lots of wood mixed with Dutch design pieces such as the diner table from Piet Hein Eek.
Benefiting from the rugged beauty of the Baltic coast, Rügen Beach House is a tranquil retreat immersed in nature. Scandinavian in its design, this self-catering house which is entirely wooden compliments its surrounding environment while offering modern luxuries such as a sauna and underfloor heating. Overlooking a quiet harbour, a stone’s throw away from white sand beaches and surrounded by the Zickerschen Alps, the location couldn’t be more idyllic. The island of Rügen also boasts harbour villages, dramatic landscapes and Robin-Hood type woods. This stylishly decorated home in Germany is for rent, it is suitable for up to 8 people.
This white ranch style home looks like it is located in New England. Inside the interior is inspired by houses in Thailand and Bali. But this is actually as Swedish home, close to the city of Enköping.

I love working in our garden and this outdoor production by StyleCookie for Dutch magazine Flair is right up my alley. The ladies from StyleCookie created some love DIY project to do in and around the garden. You can make an outdoor shower for instance by using an plastic bottle, or compose a table from old wooden fruit boxes. Recycle and enjoy!
