The dip dye trend reminds us of the DIY t-shirts that we made in the late ’80’s. Back then, we certainly did not have the patience and approach (not to mention style) that we have developed over the years to make a piece of cloth dipped in a big bowl of paint look good.
Recently we came across this trend again and decided to give it another try. This time not on our old white tee but on the curtains in the boys room. We thought they could use a funked up version to add a bit of boho to their overall crisp Scandi room.
Although our style has hopefully changed, the method of dip dye has not. It’s easy but does require the right materials.
We always love peeking into someones home. Especially when it’s an exclusive one like this.
Eight years ago, Bea Kroeze moved into a this house which was built in 1911. The interior was totally rebuilt using white for the floors and walls to make it light and clean. Color was later brought in with the furniture, accessories and toys.
Bea gets her inspiration from traveling, interior magazines, blogs, Pinterest and Instagram, where we ‘met’ her. And this beautiful double room of her son, with French doors to a balcony, so playful and light, it’s too good not to share.
We love it when we walk out of one of our rooms, leaving behind a happy kid. A seven year old boy this time who was very content with his new place to sleep.
However, it does require time, inspiration, many trips to many different shops and plenty of online shopping before we reach that stage. We just want to take you back to show how we get from moodboard to final room.
Once we have met the little dweller and have seen the room, we often immediately have an idea of what we want to do. In this case, we wanted to work on something solid with touches of nature with a wild edge. This space is a young boys domain, and it will need to stay cool for the coming years.
Once upon a time there was a nine year old girl who was ready for a small version of a big city apartment. Inspired by her passion for ballet and her love for Paris, we were very happy to create a space for her to grow in and grow-up in. This room needed some dreamy metropolitan furnishing with a modern touch.
