From the outside, the 80’s home may not have been the first choice. Sylvie (@ ourlifeatno5): “When we went to have a look, we fell in love. We fell on the split-level character and the high ceiling with the beams. It immediately gave us the holiday feeling, a holiday home.”
The interior style of the couple can be labeled as Scandinavian. “I like white and light, natural shades. We spiced it up a bit with some black, to give it a slightly more rugged touch.”
White living room
Everything used to be dark, but by making high walls and beams white, you get a very calm basis. “We also opted for roman blinds in natural shades. It lets a little light through, but does not allow passers-by to see us.”
To enjoy the crackling fire from the living room and dining area, we opted for a double burner. In addition, the fireplace has become a real eye-catcher in the home, because of its size and black and white look.
Quiet dining area
The duo has opted for a large table of 2.60 meters. A place where they can dine for hours with the whole family. “It’s a heavy solid oak table, but to make it a bit softer, we opted for bouclé fabric chairs. In addition, we added some curves to break through all the right angles.” And the lamp? Sylvie and Rob flew them especially from Bali.
The quiet style from the living room has been carried through the entire house. The bedroom walls are also provided with neutral colors of paint and it is trimmed with rattan elements.
“Our bedroom has a slightly more industrial touch. We really wanted a brick wall. They are loose panels that can be installed within a few hours. And because it is 3D printed, you can feel the structure of the wall.”
“By keeping a quiet base, we have tried to create one whole with the three floors. A very pleasant house!”
