My visit to the Kif Kef home.

My visit to the Kif Kef home.

Discover my -part 1- of my visit to the Kif Kef home. Sumeyye Ata, the girlboss behind Kif Kef is one of the most creative women I know in the interior business. 5 years ago she started with her own webshop Kif Kef, famous for it’s ‘bars chairs’. At that time she lived in Mortsel (Antwerp) with her husband and little boy. The two of them renovated their little home and sold it. Their first home was already a huge Pinterest hit so the signs pointed to a bigger succes when they decided to buy a new -much bigger- home in Antwerp. They renovated & seperated the house in 4 levels. Level 0 = The Kif Kef Studio Level 1 = The home Level 2 = The Kif Kef Appartement (Airbnb/ rental accommodation) Level 3 = The Kif Kef Loft (Also rental place) The renovation has been huge and most impressive part is they did most of it themselves. (Really, still don’t know where they found or will find the time in the future… especially if you know they also have twins now. (1,5yrs old) & a little boy 4yrs old.

Some time ago I discovered the Instagram page of Mamoesjka_nl. A dutch girl with a passion for interior styling & decoration. I followed her Instagram profile and every day I discovered a new beautiful picture of her interior.  I decided to contact her and share her beautiful home on our blog.

When we do stylings or when we sell vintage pieces there are still a lot of people who ask us how they have to combine vintage pieces in their homes (without making it feel ‘old’) & a lot of people have questions when we talk about an ‘all white interior’ ‘wouldn’t it be to clean? Will it be ‘TO’ modern, or ‘maybe look like a hospital?’

Well for all you people who are doubting about these questions, look above. This beautiful home has a white base, but it’s still so playfull because of all the color accents. 

The bench in the living room is bright pink so the entire room becomes playful & cosy because of this. The blue lighting above the table is (again) a design by Studio Snowpuppe (check our previous post = here). It’s made out of a strong paper so the light is very warm. The drawing above the bench is by a designer called Marta Abad Blay. The bench was made by the ‘Mamoesjka’s husband’. (Feeling a little bit jealous about her handy-man.) :)

In her entire home she uses a lot of ‘wallpaper’ strokes instead of covering entire walls. This gives the house a fresh look instead of an impression of ‘to much’. She combines vintage elements with new products like they are a match made in heaven.

I could really live here, don’t you?
Thanks again to Ilona. -Yes that’s her real name- Fender, Bloom & Benjamin.

(And off course the husband for making the beautiful bench in the living room. I think we have a market for them, so if you ever want to sell them, give us a call ;))
