We have been working on renovating our little house to be able to sell it without feeling guilty about what we sold. Don’t want anyone to move in and find out the house is built on a lake and the walls are made of plastic. So we’re trucking on and making someone a cozy and warm home.
On the other hand, we’re trying to find the perfect little house, surrounded by green and calm and enough room for a doggie.
So we’re always deep down in decor books and house idea pins.
Sometimes I bump into stuff I really like and want.
Let me share my finds with you:
I love tiles! Tiles and wood. Tiles tell stories, wood gives warmth. I like tiles on the floor, tiles on the wall, even tiles on the wood. Tiles, tiles, tiles!
I like those white subway tiles, those tiny glasslike tiles, those textured tinlike tiles, those old Flemish floor tiles with patterns but most of all those blue and white ones with dainty little stories on them from Holland. I own two at the moment. My mother-in-law wanted to chuck them, but I salvaged them! One is a picture of a harbour with a house and a water tower by the shore and one pictures a shepherd with a stick. They will be incorporated in the new house when we find it.
Recently I discovered that these kind of tiles are being made again! But with a twist, ofcourse. Check out Paul Bommer’s collection. I want them all!
Today I found a couple of Dutch girls making tiles with modern pictures on them of old stories. Red riding hood, an old school yard, a fox trying to eat a girl, it’s all there. Again, I can’t choose! And what’s even worse… you can have them make your own tile, with your own little story. Oh… ooooh…
