our home has been featured…

An exciting email landed in my inbox this morning. Prettyfourwalls has been featured in the latest blog post by Hello Mrs Eve.

Every day this week, the Berlin blogger is sharing different interiors style on at(mine).com.

Today is all about eclectic style and our living room from our last home makes a cheeky appearance.

Mrs Eve says:

In Jane’s living room, a midcentury lamp, a nostalgic chandelier and a classicist fireplace fit together harmonically. The mustard yellow accents keeps the different eras together. 

  

Oh how I miss those picture rails!

I haven’t ever really thought of myself as eclectic. The fireplace and chandelier were already in the house when we moved in so I had to try and get them to work with my things. 

It’s worth checking out the other homes featured too. Yesterday’s post highlights some clever invisible TV trickery which I am tempted to copy.

 Ooh and I haven’t mentioned that we have the keys for our new home. The first thing we did was to pull up a corner of the hallway carpet….and we found parquet!

Have a great week.

Home Tour: Happy Dutch home

Once we move into the new house, we hope to have an open plan space for cooking, eating and playing. 

And I want it to be colourful and fun. So when I came across the Dutch home of Lonneke, a Mum of three, I took note.

She kindly agreed to let me share her home with you. 

 So first up, we have the dining table. You’ll see in the rest of the pictures that she manages a happy blend of modern and vintage.

  
I love this postcard rack and I am officially stealing this idea. Lonneke bought this from her local Hema shop. They have stores in London and also have an online shop.

 

I like the idea of a high kitchen shelf too for a stash of gorgeous ceramics.
 

A great way to introduce a splash of colour for the faint hearted is to shop for some cutlery or utensils. The kids will love it too.
   
Nice little basket of candles hiding under there and clashing sofa prints.

These neon plant holders were a DIY project. Another idea steal to add to the list.
   
Lovely modern side tables sitting alongside vintage. 

 
 I told Lonneke that the picture below is going to be added to my Pinterest board for our new family room. I have been dreaming of a grey sofa with a colourful mix of cushions.

Have a great weekend!
