A very lovely home tour today! This bright industrial farmhouse in The Netherlands belongs to Jellina & Jan. They’re still working on the renovation of the monumental property but already the home looks absolutely wonderful. The amazing exposed beams are seen thoughout the house and I really love the industrial elements they’ve added to the home. This in combination with the vintage items and many plants creates a beautiful light family home. If you want to see more of this home and of the ongoing renovation just take a look at Jellina’s blog for more pictures of her beautiful home.
With winter on its way, it might be a good time to show a beautiful winter home. This mountain home in Norway – created by Slettvoll – overlooks the Norefjell and it’s exactly what you want in a winter home. Filled with cozy textures, exposed beams and fireplaces it’s the perfect spot to warm up during the cold months. Really I’m not sure if I would even leave this home at all. Make a cup of tea, put on some Bon Iver and enjoy the stunning landscape from your warm home!
Tiled floors, stunning wooden doors, exposed beams and brickwork. This home in Valencia is a pearl for people who love original details. Marcial and Andrea bought this place when it was still in terrible condition. Together with Marcial’s brother they completely renovated the home to create a light-filled apartment. Key point was to give the architectural structure of the building the center stage. Thereby they created a home that beautifully combines modern design with historic architecture.
If you’re thinking ‘hey this home looks vaguely familiar’ then you’re right! I’ve posted pictures of this home before when it was featured on VT Wonen. Now this beauty of a home is for sale and we can enjoy even more pictures! The 3-story home has many historical features such as the fireplace and the exposed beams in the bedroom. I love the combination of styles in this home and the subtle use of colour (Well subtle? Look at that pink bathroom!). The light family home doesn’t have a garden bút it is situated next to the Vondelpark.. that’s what I call a perfect location!
Attic apartment? Check! Exposed beams? Check! Beautiful Scandinavian design? Check! Plants to liven it up? Check!
An attic apartment is kind of my dream home (in the city) and I really like this. It has all the elements you wish for in a Scandinavian attic apartment, so sit back and enjoy!
I would love a home in the country and this home in Denmark is pretty much perfect. It dates back to 1885 and has views over the ocean. The home has so many wonderful features; exposed beams, bright spaces, nice pops of colour, cozy textures and an attic bedroom (I love attic bedrooms). It has a wonderful combination of styles, textures and of course the Scandinavian brightness. Good news if this is just the home you’ve always wanted because it’s for sale!
I completely understand when you live in a big vibrant city that you want your home to be a serene oasis. Carla Navas and Victor Molina of WIT architecture and interior design studio did exactly that in the city centre of Barcelona. The beautiful oak floor and broken white walls give the space warmth while the exposed beams give the apartment extra charm. Because there aren’t many windows the bathroom and kitchen are decorated in light colours. Looking at this apartment I become completely relaxed which is exactly what the designers wanted to achieve. Absolutely stunning!
I often hear that Scandinavian homes don’t have enough colour. Now personally I really like the more typical Scandinavian homes but a little colour here and there certainly doesn’t harm the interior. For the lovers of Scandinavian homes ánd colour I show you this Copenhagen loft. The rich colours work really well because of the large windows and high ceilings. The old beams from the building – that dates from 1877 – have been preserved to give the spaces some extra character. This loft has a beautiful combination of classic Scandinavian design pieces, historics features and modern elements.
I’m in love with old derelict buildings that are given a new life. This farmhouse in The Netherlands wasn’t in very good shape when Denny and Vivian bought it, but they fell in love with the location and the unlimited view of the fields behind the farmhouse. Architect Joep van Os decided to add gigantic steel and glass walls so that the owners can fully take in the view that they love so much. The farmhouse has a lovely combination of old and new. They managed to keep the wooden beams and the exposed brick walls that the owners loved very much. The white base and the steel frames add some modern touches to an old building. I love how the architect managed to bring this farmhouse into the 21st-century without losing its historic charm.
A good combination of old and new design is something I hugely appreciate. On first glance this canal home in Amsterdam looks very modern. But luckily they preserved many historical details such as the wooden beams and the exposed brick wall. The kitchen and dining space is situated in the middle of the long apartment. Very clever, a steel and glass roof gives the kitchen space some extra natural light. The steel staircase leads to the bedroom and workroom. Even though the spaces are mainly white, the wooden beams give the apartment the historic charm you can expoect from a canal home. What a wonderful home, minimalist design with historic charm on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam.
