A whimsical floral and pastel home in Belgium

It feels strange writing about whimsical florals and pretty pastels while there's snow on the ground, but that's exactly what sets this home apart.  The space belongs to Yvonne Eikkenduijn, her husband Bo and 3 hens in Lommel on the Belgium-Dutch border. Yvonne describes her style as -Scandinavian -English, and I see an element of Dutch too. Yvonne is a photographer, blogger, and author of two books: yvestown in the kitchen and weekend ontbijtboek. She also bakes a mean cake. I could imagine hanging out here with the smell of freshly baked cake hanging in the air, how about you?!



Holly Marder. Homes with Heart Decor8.

Is this your kind of style?

A few items I know and love: Smeg fridge, Cath Kidsen wallpaper, Muuto E27 light, Bertoia chair. Paint a cupboard in Farrow & Ball Middleton Pink for a similar effect.

Have you been to Belgium? I'm working with a Belgium interior designer Mieke Van Roey this week and she says Ghent is fabulous for interior design shopping. I'm also keen to visit this restaurant in Brussels and perhaps do a little clothes shopping in Antwerp. And of course - a stop at Yvonne's home for a slice of cake would be nice too! Belgium is officially added to my travel board!

Yvonne's home has been beautifully captured by Holly Marder for her Homes with Heart column. Holly came to visit last year and at the same time photographed Tina's fab home. Her bedroom is one of the most popular posts ever featured on My Scandinavian Home! And I've featured lots of homes she has styled / photographed in Holland including this, this and this home. I can't wait to see what she does next!

Have a lovely day!
