The official signing of the papers date for my previous home is on the 21st of October, so another good month of packing up and saying goodbye. We have found a really charming temporary home just at the end of the road, in the middle of the countryside. So it’s not going to be The Netherlands but it remains Belgium where our second home will be. The house hunt for the Swedish home will start in January 2017.
As part of letting go and saying goodbye I’ve agreed to a bunch of magazine features featuring my Christmas home, as I think that’s my home on it’s best. One of them is Vintage Holiday magazine published by Engaged Media. It’s in shops now!
It turned out so pretty and festive that I can’t hardly wait to start decorating the cottage for Christmas. I very much believe in decorating for Christmas in the colour palette of the existing decor instead of using traditional colours such as red and green.
I always find it quite a struggle to find the right pieces for my home as they are not allowed to be tacky or fake. I rather go for vintage and worn down items that tell a history. With basically everything I have in my home I have a history. Just recently I kicked all the new mass produced objects out (about 5 or so). How dull to have the same interior someone else is having.
I hope I’m going to make it in time to have the cottage all ready before December. These pages get me all itchy!! Click on the images for a larger size so that you can read the full article. Or if you want to see the whole magazine you can order a copy here or get it on your iPad.
