I have had a profound love for any Eames design for as long as I can remember. That explains how my Eames Lounge Chair , the first piece of design furniture I bought for myself, always takes up the best place in our living room. After quite some years of also happily using Vitra products in our styling, we were invited to come to the source: The Vitra Campus so in Weil am Rhein, Switzerland.
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.
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.
In my Instagram you might have seen that the hashtags #Movethatbus #RentalHeaven and #Getridofuglytiles is still going strong. We have moved into our new rental house that luckily feels more like our own home then any of our previous houses. This time around we had the chance to decide on most of the finishes. Finishes that, to me make a big difference in how I feel about my home. Where rental houses often make it necessary to turn a blind eye towards ugly tiles, a hideous kitchen or an unidentifiable color on the wall, this house is the best one yet! A wooden floor (yeah!), a marble counter top (hurray!, grey simple kitchen cabinets and walls on which we can choose our on color (yessss!) make me so happy! For the first time, this is a place that I want to show off and trust me, I will!
