house crush : in the netherlands


i must have the netherlands on the brain.  i’ve been dreaming of my very own dutch bike, and yesterday i was talking all about holland with the owner of an antiques store (where i bought this little pretty).  my brother and sister have both visited before.  and, naturally, being part dutch, i think a trip is in order (one day, right!).  but, for now a little visual trip will have to do.

how cute is this race track on the floor idea?

clearly, i have a love for the dutch and their take on design.  a few years back i interviewed annie brahler of euro trash, who gave me a little insight on design and her dutch background, which i completely resonated with (forgive my old horrible photos – from back when….you can see better pics of her home here).

what do you love most about this dutch home?  i don’t think there is one thing i don’t like.  but i’m particularly fond of the brick fireplace and the bathtub!  ok, the swinging chair too!

    This is a beautiful home, and I love that it also involves kiddos!
