    Default A Modern Home in the Netherlands

    A MODERN HOME FROM THE 1920′S IN THE NETHERLANDS

    This home located in Bloemendaal at the Dutch coast was built in the 1920′s. Although it has been renovated to offer all modern comforts, the house still has some historic elements such as the stair case (featured in the last image). The decor is kept simple and oozes serenity and unity. I love the wide wooden floor planks, we have a similar floor ourselves in our home. The pendant light with forest print in the kids room is the Shady Tree light from Dutch designer Nicolette Brunklaus.

    Nope. Just not inviting at all.

    lol i love it. i like the white walls and muted neutral tones. i think it's serene and relaxing. i like the mix of modern, old and rustic.

    If we had the jigsaw moose head thing it'd either be used for elastic band firing practice or hauled down for drunken bullfights in the street.

    The rest of it is too white for me. I like a little colour.
