Some big news! We bought a coastal holiday home in The Netherlands. Well actually it is a tiny villa on a holiday home park. Last Tuesday we received the keys to our new holiday home which is located in Zeeland, on the Dutch coast. Although we have gotten very spoiled in Dubai with the warm sea and the many beach days a year, going to a Dutch beach is still incredible. After 8 years living as expats, we are excited to own our place again in Holland.

We will be renovating to make it our own. In this process we will be sharing some inspiration and behind the scene shots on @liveloudgirlstays

Our inspiration is beauty, chill, surf style, family life yet with a touch of design. We will of course be experimenting with paint and entirely renovating the kitchen and bathroom as those need an upgrade. In the meantime I will be looking for some vintage pieces which I sincerely miss so much in our work in Dubai. You can get a sneak peek on my Pinterest board…

This summer we hope to be staying here so the pressure is on. And if you want to get a taste of how it is to stay in a Live Loud Girl home on the Dutch coast… it will be available to rent out.

Stay tuned and follow our exciting adventure. We can’t wait to get started.

Do you want to see me and the team getting really excited? That is when we see Collaborative shoot appearing on the agenda.
A collaborative shoot is initiated and executed by us. We are the client as well as the stylist. It gives us a chance to work with products we have adored for a long time or that we just recently fell in love with.
Over time we collect these treasures until we have a perfect mix. And then we create a setting, hoping it will look as good as it does in our head.

We have often written about how creating a statement wall can really change the vibe of a room. By bringing color in, you can give a space an instant make over.
We love using a color that is appropriate for the room. For example, using a subtle color in the master bedroom and maybe a bold one in a kids or playroom.
No matter what your style is, no matter how big or small your home is, no matter what the size of your wall is, paint always works!

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.
