TOM DIXON BRASS PENDANT LIGHTS IN A DANISH HOME

dixonlight 2

I’m loving the Tom Dixon lights in this beautiful Danish home! The pendants are inspired by the sculptural simplicity of brass cooking pots and traditional water vessels on the subcontinent. The lights, made from brass with a black patinated exterior, are spun and hand-beaten by renowned skilled craftsmen of Moradabad in Northern India. I especially love these lights when grouped together.

HOW TO CHOOSE DOOR AND WINDOW FURNITURE FOR YOUR HOME

intersteel1

When renovating a home a lot of thought goes into making a floor plan, choosing kitchen and bathroom appliances, selecting a colour scheme and buying furniture pieces. But most homeowners spend surprisingly little time on selecting door and windows furniture (in Dutch: deur- en raamkrukken). Although these serve a functional purpose, door and window furniture are also design elements and can actually add a stylish touch to your home and complement the rest of the interior. So choosing the right lever handle is more important than you would think!

When we renovated our home a few years ago and were faced with choosing door and window fixtures, we found out that there are a lot of options when it comes to design, materials and finish. It seems like a daunting task to make the right choice but by following some guidelines you will be able to find the best option for you and your home.

WEEKEND ESCAPE: A TRANQUIL HOLIDAY HOME IN PUGLIA

pugliaitaly1

This beautiful historic country house located in Puglia, Italy, is idyllically surrounded by 30,000m2 of private grounds with olive groves and vineyards. Masseria Scorcialupi is a 18th century villa which is divided in three separated apartments named after the herbs of the courtyard. The decor has the traditional style of Puglia’s manor farms. The private terraces offer a terrific view of the country. The house in the quiet countryside of Salento has lots of charm and is full with atmosphere of rural life. Life flows slowly here and it is therefore the perfect place for relaxing and privacy. Masseria Scorcialupi can be rented, more information is available on their website.
