Summer is here! We will be having a break from the office yet also have a very exciting design job to look into. Live Loud Girl Stays is our own three bedroom home on the Dutch coast. A place to go to in our school holidays. A place to rent out to who ever wants to experience the true Live Loud Girl style.

When being in a situation where you can start from scratch, you can decorate according to how you want to feel when being here. This house will be a beach getaway. A home you relax as soon as you walk in. A place you fill your lungs with fresh air as soon as you step out.

The overall feel will remain clean and minimalistic. In terms of furniture we will be combining old with new to strike the perfect balance between design and vintage. We are re-using the existing kitchen cabinets. Yet we are bringing in some perfect imperfect tiles that have always been on my wishlist. The bathroom will get a proper upgrade. We will add some funky pink and in the rest of the home we will be experimenting with color.

Although the real renovation will only start in September, we are excited to go there this summer to kick off with some preparations. We need to choose materials and colors. We will be on the look out for furniture. It will be a few more months before we know how it all looks.

You can follow our journey on Live Loud Girl Stays. I will be visiting my favorite shops in The Netherlands and putting together the shopping list. For now we want to share the mood boards and wishlist… Let us know what you think?!

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.
