Am I excited? Probably the understatement of the year! I am beaming with happiness to have the opportunity to completely renovate our new rental home . Thank you very much new landlord.
As we close one door and will be openening another, I will be sharing the journey of the renovations and move into our new home with you on the blog and Instagram
For us this is finally a home which feels completely ours. Even though this is yet another rental in a long list of them, this one already feels more of our own. No more horrendous bathrooms, ugly tiles and yellow walls. This time around we had a little say in how our house should look and will show you that it is possible to make a rental feel like your home without a huge investment.
I am happy to have found some great partners to work with to make my rental dream come true!
I’ll walk you through my plans with some inspiration images and a first sneak peek before the great reveaI. Remember, it is still a rental… so no concrete floors, blush bathroom tiles, black tabs and high steel black windows windows as on my list if I were ever to build my own house.
Inspiration terms for this new home: marble, white, simplicity, warm grey and beige, wood, big shower, light.
Hope you are as excited as us…. and will follow us along the way. Counting the days now!
It has been a long and happy summer break but it is good to be back home.
One of the highlights for me was taking my boys to New York City, the place where we lived before we came to Dubai. It is the city I moved to with my husband and a baby, the city where my youngest was born and the city that inspired me so much that I decided to follow my heart and get into interior styling. So you can imagine how special this holiday was.
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.
We are spending a lot (!) of hours inside at the moment. With the sun flaming and the aircon blazing, the boys are catching up on their reading when its just too hot to handle out there.
To make their room a bit more comfortable, we brought in two beautiful floor cushions from Little Connoisseur. The perfect thrown for lounging kids. The cotton cushions have such nice details like a golden exposed zip and a genuine leather adornment that can even be customized. Not a big surprise that our cushions say: PLAY and LOUD. And then we haven’t even mentioned the packaging… Get ready to be surprised!
