The former school needed a massive amount of work in order to convert it into a liveable space. As well as structural work, a mezzanine floor was added to create space for a living room.
In the open plan kitchen, the wooden ceiling has been left exposed to add warmth – a perfect way to balance the coolness of the concrete floor. A pink accent wall also helps to add softness and break up the monochrome theme.
I love this vibrant bouquet – it instantly lifts the spirits and adds a wonderful splash of colour!
Bikes are as big a part of life in Holland as they are in Scandinavia. This one is so elegant it can be stored in the sitting room area and actually adds to the space (mine wouldn’t look quite as aesthetic as this!).
The bathroom in the bedroom is bound to get tongues wagging in the comment section. I’ve always thought they’re pretty cool as they have a luxury hotel-like feel. I’m not sure everyone agrees though!
The bed is from IKEA (I was freelancing there when it was first launched and I loved to see how IKEA interior designers styled it: the rail can be used for clothes, hanging plants or nice fabric! The mirror is also IKEA.
The former school playground was extremely barren and need to be re-worked from scratch to transform it into a garden and outdoor social area.
A patio area serves as a place to cook, gather and play come summer.
In all, a lovely property – and knowing that it used to be a school makes it even more special.
