Hallo! I think you will really enjoy today’s home tour from Dutch blogger Iris of Irideeën, it is full of the kind of personal, creative details that make me swoon… :)
On her tiny balcony Iris has created a welcoming spot for tea + talk with a friend or simply sitting quietly to enjoy a stack of fresh magazines. What do you think of the blank pink picture frame Iris chose to mount above the sofa? Yes or no? Would you try that at home? I’m not always a big fan of the blank frame, but I think it plays very nicely with the whimsical mood of this little nook.
Continuing on to the kitchen, I am quite taken with her range, open shelving, and teacups and things in soft pastel shades. Sometimes it’s the smallest detail that makes all the difference, don’t you think? This kitchen could feel cold and plain with everything black, white, and stainless steel, but the personal touches bring a sense of warmth and femininity.
Iris is also a Mama, and I love how she has used this giant board in her hallway as a rotating, layered display of her children’s artwork. Some are drawings and paintings, mixed with little sculptures and collections from nature – lovely! :)
To find out more about Iris, go visit her blog Irideeën, and don’t be scared off by the notoriously confusing Dutch language – Iris has thoughtfully placed a “translate” button right on her site! xoxo Laura
