House In Netherlands With A Light And Bright Interior

There are few new or high-street items in the house; Hollick prefers antiques, such as the Victorian shipwright’s bench that serves as the kitchen island – oil, salt and other condiments sit in the furrow that 100 years ago would have held shipbuilding tools.

Hollick found the brass lights in Katmandu – try Skinflint Design for similar. Fired Earth stocks similar tiles.

Using reclaimed timber for the units not only gives the kitchen a custom-made feel on a budget, they also add colour and texture to an otherwise neutral space.

Black timber cladding has become increasingly popular with architects, using a traditional Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban to char the wood in order to protect it against the elements and parasites. It’s a simple way to add a distinctive, crisp and modern look to a renovated property.

Put new elements and existing features in direct contrast with each other for a dramatic effect and a distinctive look; here the birch-plywood staircase with a sleek, linear handrail sits directly next to the old brickwork of the original property, which has been exposed for textural interest.

One way to add character to a new property is to get creative with bespoke joinery. Not only are these bookshelves recessed, which saves on space, the unique geometric design has turned them into a stand-out feature of the home.

Originally, this beautiful house was built in 1760. Back then it was a coach house annex stables. Later it has been converted into the spacious house that it is today. The last renovation was a project by Zecc Architects. The house, located in Breukelen, The Netherlands was renovated in 2012 and the goal then was to remove and get rid of anything that wasn’t useful. There were a lot of features that were then for now important reason. The architects wanted to make this house look simple, airy and spacious.

This clever glazing is called an oriel window – a type of bay window which projects from the main wall of the house but doesn’t touch the ground. It’s perfect for contemporary homes, offering a super sleek look that also doubles up as a window seat, framing the view to the garden beyond – the perfect spot for reading a book.

A few structural and layout changes have been made as well. For example, the stable is now used as a living room and what used to be the tack room is now the entrance hall. The coach house has also been converted into a kitchen. The structure had to be partially demolished to make room for all the changes. But now, as you can see, there’s a strong connection between the living room and the kitchen. A modern staircase was also added during the renovation. The exterior of the house got an updated look as well. It’s made of smooth stucco and the interior is entirely made of solid oak.

Allowing the striking blue hues of the painting to lead the way, Antoinette acquired a blue replica Eames chair with contrasting pink accessories dotted throughout. A pink Studio Snowpuppe origami lamp and poster by Zilverblauw are a couple of Antoinette’s favorites. “I have been following the blog Zilverblauw for quite a while now. I have a few more posters by her hanging around the house.” Among other cherished pieces is the vintage IKEA ‘Järpen’ wire chair that was rescued from the attic of Antoinette’s mother which was left unused there for over thirty years. Another IKEA piece is the ‘PS collection’ dresser, originally natural wood and white, which Antoinette painted all white and updated three of the handles for a fun and colorful look. She’s added additional whimsy and intrigue to the space with a Kartell gnome stool, too.

The kitchen is filled with color, happiness and is accented by a black and white tiled floor, chalkboard wall and a large yellow cabinet with double glass doors providing storage for the small and very sweet galley kitchen.

Hollick, who works as an art director, textile designer, trend consultant and set designer for theatre company Chickenshed, has an apartment that encompasses the basement and ground floor of a three-storey Victorian terrace.

And the interior – eclectic, imaginative and unexpected – suits the vibe of this neighbourhood. This glass display cabinet is from Sunbury Antiques market at Kempton Park.

Antoinette finds inspiration in magazines, blogs and from her favorite interiors shops, thrift shops and flea markets. “It’s not so much that I want to create a specific style, I just put some accessories together that look pretty. But there are definitely Scandinavian influences here and there.”

Every square inch of space has been maximised in this project, including making the most of the vast expanse underneath the staircase, which is often overlooked. Handleless doors and drawers keep the look streamlined and subtle.

In search of a new home with a garden and space for a growing family, Antoinette and Henk became the owners of their 125 square meter abode in 2001. Though much needed to be done, it was love at first sight. Over the years, the couple renovated the kitchen and bathroom, removed a wall that once separated the kitchen and living room and replaced the downstairs floor. “To start with we painted everything white, and each time we saved some money we had something refurbished,” Antoinette says.

This super-tiny bathroom has made the most of a tight spot, tucking a built-in bath under the eaves. A salvaged piece of furniture has been turned into a vanity unit rather than opting for the standard-looking bathroom cabinet, which adds character and interest to the white room. A clerestory window has been installed to let in much-needed light while still maintaining privacy.

This project was completed by Chris Collaris Architects. To see more of the firm’s work, click here. For more inspirational interior ideas, see how to incorporate raw finishes into your home here, or find tips on how to recreate the industrial style here.

Incorporating plenty of lush greenery into the home will instantly give you a sense of being connected to the outdoors, but what’s really smart about this room is that they’ve put the plants in front of the glazing that leads out to the garden, blurring the distinction between the internal and external spaces and creating a further link to the outside space.

The boys’ bunk bed is centered in the room, creating various cozy areas within the single large space. To the right of the bed, an oversized vintage map of Holland is suspended above two vintage school desks and chairs, giving the children space to do their homework and create. The map was an online find, the desks came from the kid’s school and the chairs were purchased at Stoer Metaal. Behind the desks, along the back wall, a reading nook has been created out of mattresses placed on the floor – the covers made by their grandmother out of blankets – giving the boys a cozy and comfortable spot to unwind, relax and read.

Hollick travels extensively, too, working regularly in the Netherlands and India, and picks up pieces when he’s away. In Paris, he bought a set of vintage screw boxes from a former Citroën factory; today, they form part of a bespoke storage unit in the front room.

In India, he came across a shop that sold only labels for food packaging – designs for orange squash, rose water and more – and bought several boxes; they now act as wallpaper in the en-suite bathroom.

The bedroom features vibrant Ferm Living wallpaper and a teepee (tent) – adorned with a string of Cotton Light Balls – made by their children’s grandmother. The horse and pouf are by Colorique. Next to the bed is a Fur Neil poster by Martin Krusche.

The couple’s most prized possession – and undoubtedly the most eye-catching item in the room – is an original Herman Brood painting above the sofa. “I bought this years ago at Herman’s atelier. It was a really fun experience to have a look ‘behind the scenes’. Now that Herman is no longer alive, the painting must be worth a lot more than what we paid for it, but I will never sell it for any price.”

His background in theatre means he uses his home like a stage set. There are intriguing objects everywhere: vintage mannequin heads grouped on a wall; a herd of plastic dinosaurs; a group of tiny, torso-less legs balanced on a shelf.

The couple’s sons, Roef and Teun, share a large bedroom on the first floor of the house. “They used to each have their own room but Roef always slept with us. One night he slept in Teun’s room on a mattress on the floor, which he really liked, and since then they have shared a room,”Antoinette says. Roef’s former room has become a dressing room.

On Kingsland Road in Dalston, north-east London, the neon signs of the Turkish restaurants flash pink, turquoise and red.

Pastel hues and quirky pops of neon layered upon a crisp white base have transformed a 1935 Arnhem, The Netherlands, row house into a  home with heart belonging to Antoinette te Pas, her partner Henk Jansen and their two sons, Teun and Roef. With a penchant for Scandinavian style, a charming blend of old and new and a feminine color palette, Antoinette has created a happy haven that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The first thing anyone probably notices when they first take a look at this house is the fact that the interior is very bright and very light. That’s mostly due to that very nice combination of white and wood. The wood features are all over the rooms and they have that light finish that allows them to interact with the white décor very nicely and without resulting in a contrasting mix.

Adding a touch of homespun charm and lovingly crafted items will take the edge off a newly renovated house and transform it from a slightly sterile environment into a personal and comfortable space to spend time in.

This homely room is Hollick’s favourite: large doors open to the garden and there’s the scent of biscuits in the air – he loves to cook. The dining table is another vintage find that Hollick picked up at a French flea market.

“It previously lived in a French convent,” he says. “I think it’s seen a lot more dinner parties and booze in the past 10 years than it did in its former life.”

The couple has plans to continue fine-tuning their home’s interior, starting with the painting of a few doors and minor adjustments made to the family bathroom. Long term however, they’ve set their eyes set on a larger scale project promising more space and quality of life for them in their family home. “Our biggest wish is to redecorate the attic because it’s old and neglected with a lot of potential and space. A perfect spot for the kids to play and chill. As soon as our budgets allows it, this project will happen!”…. And we can only imagine how gorgeous it will be, right decor8 readers?

The space embraces colour, but is not vivid or overly bright: even the deep blue poured resin floor that covers the basement feels serene. “Colour is a big thing for me, but my taste is more towards subtle shades of grey and green, never really strong colours,” Hollick says.

These vintage cane armchairs are from Ardingly Antiques Fair (try Ikea for Storsele, a contemporary version). Hollick found the rug in Delhi, and the cushions are prototype designs from his textile company, Stitch by Stitch, which he runs in partnership with craftswomen in Gujurat.

Whether you have a featureless new-build or a period home, there are plenty of inspirational ideas to take from this home in north Amsterdam, which has cleverly combined and contrasted old and new elements to create a distinctive look.

Here are 10 ways to maximise the potential of your own home.

The master bedroom blends Nordic simplicity with touches of romance and whimsy. The white foundation is offset with grey ‘Brakig’ wallpaper by IKEA, while a single shelf displays a collection of vintage favorites. Playful posters by Sammy Rose and Seventy Tree hang above the bed and a mint green Studio Snowpuppe lamp mirrors the geometric lines seen in the wallpaper. The Tomado-look-a-like book rack was purchased at Bol. The bed and nightstands are IKEA.

The sofa, purchased locally 6 years ago, remains a favorite spot for the family of four, who can often be found unwinding together, “I love relaxing on our sofa reading a magazine and drinking a cup of tea during a rare moment alone,” says Antoinette.

Hey guys! Are you ready for a gorgeous home tour that I photographed for decor8 this month? Hello, it’s Holly Marder back again to take you through another lovely interior. For February, to chase away those winter blahs, it’s all about this bright, peppy and fun family home, packed with sweet accessories and pops of cheerful color. Are you ready? Let’s go, and remember, you can click on any image to enlarge!

Starting with an all-white base for the floors, walls and furniture, the couple slowly infused their home with bright pops of color and large doses of personality. “I love adding pretty colors to the white backdrop,” Antoinette says. “Although a light base is very risky with a dog and two kids, it makes things so crisp and bright.” The peppy, cheerful atmosphere of Antoinette’s home is largely owing to the accessories and art thoughtfully placed throughout, many of which are by Antoinette’s favorite brands such as HAY, Donna Wilson, Foekje Fleur and Ferm Living. “I shift things around at home often, and really enjoy shopping for and finding beautiful accessories,” Antoinette continues, “Creating a setting where my family and I feel comfortable is what I love. Sitting on the sofa surrounded by beautiful accessories in a neat and tidy home makes me really happy.”

The antique corner cabinet was painted white and was a gift from Antoinette’s  aunt. The yellow HK Living pendant light above the dining table is a cheerful addition to the space. So many details abound in this home!

Who says that colour always has to go on the walls? This floor has been covered in a playful apple green surface, leaving the walls a crisp white to really embrace the height and airiness of the angular ceiling – a colour on the wall would be distracting here, but it works perfectly on the floor instead.

There are vignettes in every corner and the dining room is no different as Antoinette created a small exhibition of plates on the dining room wall, which includes pieces by Donna Wilson, House of Rym, HAY and a metal letter by Stoer Metaal, adding a sculptural element to the vignette. Antoinette uses the shelf below to display accessories and favorite items along with fresh flowers.

The couple gave their scrap-wood dining table a fresh new look last year by painting it mint green, offsetting their ‘Brakig’ chairs from IKEA creating cohesion with the neighboring living room and kitchen color schemes.

The dining room connects the living room through an ensuite walkway with built-in shelving and employs the same white base punctuated by colorful lighting, accessories and fresh flowers taking center stage.
