We have been following @madebylon for as long as we have been on Instagram. A fellow Dutchie who has just moved back to Holland after spending two and a half years in LA with her husband Bart and their three blond babies Sylvester (7), Reva, (4) and Oscar (10 months). She captured her adventure beautifully, focussing on the little things in life that will – using her own words – later be known as the big things.
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.
The first in row of our summer guests is a person that is on our top 5 of Instagram accounts to check before the day starts: Louise @mortilmernee. Her Danish home makes us drool, her talent for styling makes us jealous and her way with words makes us laugh.
Earlier this year we asked her to share her home tour with us. Remember that beautiful wintery living room?
Well we are getting a very different vibe on her account this time of year as Louise is addicted to flowers and we want to know more about how she brings summer inside. So we asked her a few questions and styling tips to go with some exclusive photo’s of her home.
What are your plans this summer?
This summer we are driving to Italy and Austria to meet family. The feeling of just driving towards the sun is amazing and we love that the vacation starts as soon as you get into the car. In september we will go to New York to spend nine days in this amazing city. We love to visit big cities as a family. You can have some of the best talks with your kids when you walk around for hours. Both of us will be holding hands with one of our daughters and just walk, talk and see all day long. This is really the ultimate holiday for me.
What is the difference between a house and a home? A space and a room? What makes a random area in your house a sanctuary you want to escape to?
At the Milan Design Week we literally kept walking into a new trend that opened our eyes. It is a theme that is all about how connecting with people is more important then ever. ‘Everything is connected’ was not only the title of Jotun‘s design exhibition, we also felt this proposition at brands like IKEA, Carl Hansen and Son, Vitra and many more.
