Let's Get Personal in the Netherlands with Christien from slow wood
D:: Dutch is being open, exploring & free..
E:: entrance, when entering my home you will notice the lightblue sofa of Scholten & Baijings mixed with an old grain bags patchwork carpet. You also smell the aromas of rosemary & eucalyptus of the eco paints, the loam, cork and a lot of wood. It smells like home.
S:: style, means being you true self.
I:: interesting places in my city, Jan de Jong Interior extraordinary since 1899, HEMA of course as a Dutchy, florist Gerben Reitsma and Niijnski for the Humanoid basics. Fries Museum & Princessehof Museum.
G:: gardening is something I ruin my nails with and makes my head empty.
N:: new, in my home is a lovely lightgrey kitchensteps about 100 years old ! It was given to me by my neighbours, cleaning up their house.
H:: hobby, I always make time for my children.
O:: outfit, my favorite thing to wear at home is my Kuyichi jeans and a really old Armani silk scarf, it nearly falls apart. For occasions Missoni.
M:: magazines I love to read are Ode, Object, Frame, Elle Decoration, E&I, Mix, Bloom, Wallpaper and Trendtablet.com
E:: enjoy, I can't live without chocolate & my 4 men Henk, Levi, Aron and Isaac
Thank you Christien!
You might recognize the style or even the beautiful tables? Last Thursday I wrote a post about Slow Wood... the new collection by Christien Starkenburg. Her house is truly special and different and it looks so Scandinavian to me. I love how she has de orates the places, everything looks so balanced, clean but very warm and cozy.
