a Dutch home





Well, I think it's Finnish!?
Thanks to Kati, I now know it's Dutch!
In my opinion, the best part of this place is the kitchen. Bright white floors,
which seem so appropriate for a kitchen where you want to at least feel like it's
clean. The raw wood beams and counter tops go well with the very black wall and
white floor, could there be a better color trio?
There looks to be a large sky light in the kitchen area and what I wouldn't give
for a giant one in our kitchen where we have no windows or white floors. I think
it should be illegal to build a home with no natural light source in the kitchen.
If I could have it my way, I wouldn't even need to flip a light switch until late
into the evening, though that may involve moving somewhere with longer days and mild
winters.

  2. I totally agree with you about the kitchen window thing. I have the same issue in my home and it's so depressing. I dream of a lovely bright, white kitchen with natural light :) I love the contrasting black backsplash in the kitchen here.

  3. This is gorgeous! But.. it´s not Finnish. This is a home of Dutch Inekke Visser. There is an article of her home in the latest Deko magazine.
    Really enjoy your blog ;D

    Beste wishes,
    Kati from Finland

  7. I'm curious, will you ever give suggestion/advice about how to design a kitchen/living room?

    We got our first house..well last year, working with a strict budget and it's a fixer upper so just wondering since I've been following you and LOVE your sense of style, if I could e-mail you my photos of my kitchen (we're thinking of fixing up the kitchen some this Winter), what would you suggest as in color, texture, backsplash etc?

    It'd be awesome to get your input! I have my own idea, so does my hub (and they're completely opposite btw LOL), but you know, it's so good to hear from a person with your sense of style.
