i must be having a subliminal barn house infatuation, because here’s the second one i’ve posted this week, albeit quite a bit different. this netherlands barn house has a much more muted color palette of dark blue & white, and i think what really grabbed me are the white beamed ceilings. my own ceilings are vaulted and have white beams, so i’m always interested when i can see what others have done with a similar framework to mine. this home was previously a farmhouse and was transformed with loads of white paint to give it a fresh, modern update — add that amazing tile floor and navy paint accents and it really comes to life. i love the white armoire in the kitchen too, and it gives me the idea that maybe that’s where my own white armoire should take up residence — perfect for a unique looking storage option.

after spending this weekend in palm springs at the avalon hotel, i couldn’t help but get in the mood for spending more entertaining time outdoors. i loved the look of their patio there, and the mismatched outdoor chairs in the dining lounge. i went hunting for vintage chair treasures on chairish and came up with a slew of great options. from mid-century modern chairs, like homecrest swivel chairs, to rattan and wrought-iron beauties. pair those with a great glass-topped or wood table and you’ve got an instantly chic outdoor vibe. i’ve saved a bunch of my finds to my chairish favorites if you’d like to have a look. happy outdoor dining!
my chairish favorites: a pair of Mid-Century modern Homecrest Wire Lounge Chairs; Wrought Iron Salterini Rococo Patio Dining Set; a pair of yellow Mid-Century Yellow Hoop Patio Chairs; Mid-Century black Hoop Design Patio Chair; Vintage Wrought Iron Dining Set; a pair of black Salterini ‘Slice’ Wrought Iron Chairs; and a set of six Salterini Iron Grape Vine Patio Chairs.
i think the first thing you notice about this home, is all that lovely light. located in Blaricum, a charming village in the province of North Holland is this large, bright family barn house home, an architectural style that’s traditional for that area. Hidden from the road, but still near the village, this barn house is surprisingly sleek and modern with a glass facade, which provides all that lovely light. it’s filled with an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, family collectibles and some wonderfully colorful textiles which really warm up the space and give off this modern, but cozy vibe. for the full home tour, visit vtwonen.
