Happy, happy tuesday!
The sun is shining, its cold outside by the end of the week we might get lucky and can  go iceskating. THE national sport in Holland when its freezing. This reminds me of....
End of november hubby and i went to Portugal for a long weekend (yes without the children:)). We had 4 days of sunshine and 20 degrees.
We found this beachclub and settled in the beanbags with a great cappucino.( and great white wine after that)

Being there off season we were the only guests...

We had our choice of hammock....

I could live the rest of my life in that little blue house...God how i love the Ocean.

See those sunglasses.....thats Mr. R enjoying some november sunshine....

Just google this name and go there sometimes....we are in love.

ilove....my house

So proud to have our house featured in house and styling magazine Ariadneathome.
I don't have the original pictures yet so i took some pictures from the magazine to give you an impression.(So please forgive the poor quality)

 This Jil and me sitting at our table, sipping coffee (of course just for the picture, she doesnt like coffee)

The table i got from my dear friend Antoinette when she moved to Italy. (she is back now, but no way i'm returning the table ;)). And of course my (not my brothers :)) painting and bench.

Our kitchen.. see that cookbook. My favorite from Sophie Dahl.

Our bathroom and Jils bedroom.

                                                           Have a happy,happy tuesday

I don't actually. Well of course i do, but there is a reason why i painted our house white...whiter...whitest.
But life is boring without colors.Isn't it?

So to ad some colours (and Lord knows i need colours in january:))
I stole/borrowed these French old waterbottles from mum's house . Mum knows about me borrowing things, my house is full of it .... i don't return it  
(remember my library books mum?) and the bills that came in....

This old horseshoe is from a thrift store in Sweden, boring....but not with this violet ribbon.
(Did you know that you never,ever hang a horseshoe with its opening pointed towards the floor. The luck will poor out of your house and we dont want that, do we?)

I bought this colourful rope to tie hubby  to make presents more colourful.

Have a happy,happy colourful Thursday.

ilove.....my parents house

So the New Year has started and of course i have New Years resolutions. Behave,blog more,drink less wine, watch less soaps and eat no chocolate for a while.....( a day or so)
I also bought a new camera.(thanks to hubby)
Yesterday i went to my parents appartement and tested it. Here  you can see where my love for styling came from.

Living room

Like me my mother loves magazines and cant throw any away.

My mum loves designers stuff...

And she irons all her bedlinnen....not something i inherited :))

My favorite colors...

Ilove this chinese room divider, the Maria statue was found on the streets of Barcelona years ago.
Mum almost had to buy an extra plain ticket to take her home.....

Mum and i both love to mix old and new stuff.

ILOVE her house and ilove her......(and Dad too of course)
