Light creates atmosphere during the dark days of winter
Winter time has started. The leaves are falling from the trees and the days are growing shorter. Our primary source of light, the sun, shows its face ever less frequently at this time of year. How do you make your home light, cosy and comfortable during the dark days?
Burglary prevention: an additional advantage of window decoration
Sadly, there has been no mass exodus of burglars onto the Spanish Costas. You can never 100% prevent burglaries in your home, but you can do a great deal to reduce the risk. For example, while you are away, ask your neighbours to lower your window decorations in the evening, and raise them again, the next morning. Of course, keep your windows locked and set a timer to switch on lights in the evening. Not just downstairs but upstairs, too.
Shutters at beach restaurant de Waterreus
Bare feet in the sand, wind in the hair, a refreshing dip in the sea, topping up the suntan, and last but not least, enjoying the fabulous view between the louvers of the shutters, while eating a snack or taking a drink. Beach restaurant de Waterreus in Scheveningen is the perfect location!
Vtwonen ‘in love with your home – again’, folds in Pure Linen
On the Dutch TV programme 'Weer verliefd op je huis' (in love with your home – again), vtwonen stylists take up the challenge of rekindling the love affair between homeowners and their home. The interior tastes of the featured couples differ considerably and without outside help they are unable to reach a compromise. The vtwonen ‘in love with your home’ team makes the necessary changes.
Mint green shutters or grey blinds? What colour window decoration would you choose?
A lick of paint, new cushions or new chairs; over the years, you regularly change the interior of your house. Window decorations, on the other hand are something to be enjoyed for years. We recommend you select a colour with which you will be happy for many years to come. No more dark brown corduroy curtains with bright orange flowers like in the nineteen seventies; instead timeless classics for the windows.
A facelift for your home
Nothing can make your home look better more quickly than a tidying binge. Now that spring has sprung and the sun is shining at last, those dirty windows suddenly stand out more than ever. Or maybe you are bothtered by a jumbled-up bookcase that desperatately needs to be decluttered.
