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.
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.
We are back home! Back to normal life, routine, school lunches and sport bags. Yet to be honest, after 12 weeks of holiday, it’s kinda nice to be behind our computers again with our trusted home brewed coffee.
As we mentioned to you earlier, we weren’t bored over the last few weeks. Because next to having quality time with family and friends, we paid our favorite shops back home a visit, for inspiration and sourcing as we are in de midst of a few exciting projects.
Even with the best intentions, any holiday I go on ends up being an inspirational trip on which I need to make notes and photo’s of the beautiful interiors and exteriors I come across. Luckily my dear husband knows me well enough to just let me go crazy for a few minutes when we walk in to a stunning space. Paris just happens to be one of those cities that seems to have nothing other then that.
