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 ;))

On our second day we took our rental bikes and drove up to Scheveningen. The weather was on our side so the day couldn’t be more beautiful. We stopped a few times to check out the very-very-very beautiful houses in the streets near Madurodam. 

Once we arrived at the beach my companion wanted to eat an ice-cream and have a walk on the beach.

I can’t really recommend Scheveningen ‘beach’  because it has a little bit of a ‘to commercial’ vibe for me personally but hey, we can’t complain. The sun was on our side so everything was perfect anyway. :)

On our way back to the main street we grabbed a bite in a Mcdonalds. (Not my personal favourite but since this weekend was all about my lovely godchild she could pick the lunch this time! )
