HOLIDAY HOME

Is there anything better than being on a holiday whilst staying in your own house? Being somewhere else yet sleeping in your own bed? Enjoying another country but sitting on the sofa you love?
When you have your own holiday home, I can tell you, you get the best of both worlds.

We finished the renovations of a small holiday home on the Dutch coast at the beginning of the year. The idea behind it is that it’s the place we stay at when visiting friends and family back home. Because there is only so much of suitcase living and sleeper couch sleeping you want to do on your well deserved holiday. Especially as a family of four.
So it is truly our home away from home and we wanted to give it that final finishing touch now that we had the chance to be there.

When it came to the interior, we wanted to work with many of our favorite brands and pieces, giving this home a signature Live Loud Girl look and feel. Yet a big part of the way we work is trying to make it personal. That is often done by adding small treasures and unique items to complete the design. As this is a beach house, we loved adding easy going neutral colors. The outdoor area, being a real extension of the home, got the same amount of attention with comfortable sofa’s, a large table and some cute accessories.

During our stay here, we were able to visit some of the flee markets in this area. We love to add a local treasure and a vintage element to a place. Have you spotted the wire fish in the bedroom?
And as a project is never done, we also made some changes to the house.
In the living room we created a bit more space by hanging the surf board and swapping some things around. We added new prints by Rowan Sterenbergs and on the last day, painted an old little table black.

We had a few incredible weeks at our home away from home. The weather was very kind to us, we stocked up on quality time with the family, Dutch treats and fresh air.

Would you like to spend a holiday or a weekend at our Live Loud Girl Stays? It is available when we are not there. So get in touch to book your home away from home trip at the Dutch coast!

INSPIRATION DURING THE VACATION – CASA GITANE

As stylists, we are all about getting some inspiration during the vacation. We love traveling, finding new materials, styles and trends. And we can’t keep ourselves from visiting interior shops and markets when we are abroad. Our holiday plans most always include staying in a capital city where our carefully planned lunch address (with a beautiful interior) is just coincidentally around the corner from a store that has been on the ‘must visit’ wishlist. Yes, gathering inspiration during our vacation is of a high priority.

LIVE LOUD GIRL HOLIDAY HOME

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.

LOOK BACK AND FORWARD

As the end of this year is quickly approaching, we want to take the chance to look back on a very successful, fun and inspiring 2017.
It was a year in which we had the chance to work on things that had been on our wish list for a long time. Letting them become a reality was mind blowing.

Some fun and colorful room installations kept us busy throughout the year.  And even though that is what we have been doing for the last four years, we can never get enough of it.
