Over the years I have learned that comfort sometimes comes before beauty. Now don’t get a big fright, I am not saying that I will only be walking around in a track suit or never will wear heels again. I am saying that a comfortable place for couch surfing was missing in my previous home and I was desperate for a change.
Although time flies by so fast that we are practically thinking about our Christmas decorations again, we kicked off this year with a room for a young adult. We absolutely love doing adult spaces and have been working on quite a few lately. Due to the fact that we once started with kids rooms sometimes gives the impression that that’s all we do yet we love mixing it up now.
Being in a rental home can sometimes be a pro, sometimes a con. What we have learned in our previous rentals is that making a house your home can be a challenge. Especially if fundamental elements like the color on the wall, the type of floor or structural design is not totally up your street.

As I am a Northern European girl, I got over my ‘let-me-not-invest-too-much-in-a-rental-home’ fear and went for something that makes this house feel like it is my own: a wooden floor.
Originals. The real deal. A statement piece. That is what sums up design for us.
Investing in design is something most people don’t do overnight. It is is a process.
You might fall in love with a piece of design furniture when you are young and save up for it to finally call it your own many years after your first encounter. Or maybe you inherit a statement piece from a family member because you were always eying it. Whatever the story is, it is about surrounding yourself with furniture that you will love for the rest of your life.
