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.
For those who have followed my latest move might know project #Getridofuglytiles.
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.
With no resolutions on paper and no intention to change anything, we look forward to our calendars that are slowly but surely filling up with projects, trips, plans and ideas.
To start off this year well, I wanted to add the last finishing touches to my ‘new’ home. Creating my own art wall, like we have done before with clients, was one thing I had on my wish list. It makes me so happy to see my absolute favorite prints and photo’s each day.
Is this also something you would like to try? We have added some tips and tricks below on how to make it look clean, organised and neat (you know me….).
Believe it or not, I am the worst Christmas decorator ever! Yes, I pretend to be an interior stylist and don’t get me wrong: I love the cozy vibe, I’m a s*cker for all Xmas songs so Mariah Carey is always welcomed with open arms and I know the lyrics to ‘Last Christmas’. I love spending these days with the family and appreciate some good food that goes with the festive season.
But when it comes to Christmas styling I feel very far off and feel a bit left out seeing others doing the decorating as they do it soooo much better. My Instagram feed is filled with the most gorgeous trees, wreaths, dinner table settings and happy snuggly families.
I finally got the time to show you our new home! The last boxes are unpacked! We have officially settled in our new house.
A rental home that feels less of a temporary place due to the fact that we were able to have a say in a lot of the finishes. So after years of ugly rental tiles we could not be more happy with our marble floor up stairs, upstairs our white Kahrs Ash Blizzard wooden floor, grey custom made storage cupboards and a rain shower to name a few.
