A SERENE HOME IN A NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE

The atmosphere of this light filled home has been kept consistent in every room. By choosing the same color palette (in this case shades of light wood, browns, white and grey) for every room, you create a unity and a sense of calmness through the entire house.

I love this great IKEA hack! Plain looking IVAR cabinets made of pine wood are transformed to an eye-catching wall mural / storage space with some paint brush.

A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY HOME IN THE HEART OF AMSTERDAM

This house in Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful homes that I have seen in a while. The interior is a mix of various styles: vintage and modern pieces are combined with ethnic influences and a feminine touch. The result is an interesting blend which really works well. The floor space, divided over three levels, measures 240m2 which gives enough space for a family. The kitchen is small though for such a big house. For those in the market for a family home in Amsterdam: this beautiful house is for sale!! There is a price tag though of 1.6 million euro.. The ideal location (in the heart of Amsterdam, near the famous Vondelpark) is partly to blame for the high asking price.

Similar industrial style lights can be found here and here. Vintage kilim rugs (I love that pastel colored rug in the living room!) are available from Le Souk (new supply of vintage rugs and cushions will arrive next month)>. Similar style coffee tables can be found here, here and here.
