Let's Get Personal in the Netherlands with Eline Pellinkhof....
The Home of Eline Pellinkhof
D:: Dutch is... lots and lots of bicycles and flower shops, the canals of Amsterdam, the traditional sweet & salt gums called ‘Drop’ and the Dutch stew.
E:: Entrance... when entering my home you will notice my bike standing at the bottom of an awful navy and peach staircase which is in desperate need of a new coat of white paint. At the top of the stairs are my two lovely, curious cats.
S:: Style, means... a combination of all the things that you like and make you happy.
I:: interesting places in my city, Haarlem are… the old city centre with its narrow streets and quaint shops like Sjakies, Juffie’s Warehouse and De Wereld van Jansje, but also the fact that Haarlem is so close to the beach and close to lovely small villages like Spaarndam.
G:: Gardening is something I... love and do a lot. I have a allotment 15 minutes away, with a garden cottage and lots of flowery plants.
N:: New in my home is... a gigantic iMac computer, and some old-fashioned wooden spools.
H:: Hobby... I always make time for...gardening, friends, eating out and traveling. My work involves designing crafts materials like stamps, printed paper and fabric, but unfortunately I seldom have the time to work with them myself.
O:: Outfit... my favorite things to wear are...stylish knitted cardigans and jeans and my two silver rings. You’ll never see me in high heels.
M:: Magazines... I love to read are...VT wonen, 101 Woonideeën, Flow, Uppercase, Marie Claire idées, and online: By Fryd
E:: Enjoy... I can't live without...being my own boss, having my own work space and garden to go to, watching movies
