Haikje's Home: My house - Living room

Our weekend was lovely. We had dinner at home with family, went a night out and did some shores around the house. Today I want to give you a little peek into our home. Every now and then I am going to show you bits and pieces of where we live and I am going to kick off with the front room. Our house is a 30s house with a lot of it's original ornaments. He have a room ensuite (which I LOVE) and beautiful ceilings (I will show those in an other blogpost). A lot of people think that our herringbone flooring is also original, but actually we added it ourselves (well the flooring store did). I believe such a floor belongs to these kind of houses. The people form the flooring store were happy that they could come and make it, because they do not sell it much anymore. Today are wide, straight planks the kind of floors they sell best. The candle holder you see below is from the Danish designer Rikke Jakobsen. I also sell her beautiful designs in my webshop The "painting" is a remake I made from the Girl with a Pearl Earring from the Dutch Painter Johannes Vermeer. In the bottom picture you see my window sticker Lace. It's one of my personal favourites and also one of our bestsellers. In fact it is one of the first designs I made for the window sticker collection (already 10 years ago!). Well have a good week you all and it's nice to see that you are keep coming back to read my blog: Thank you!
