Monday inspiration - Dutch children’s rooms

Dutch children’s rooms - via vtwonen

It seems hardly probable that children’s rooms in a certain country would look very similar to each other. But it surly happens in Holland.There aren’t the same, but there are patterns which keep reappearing and  I like to spot them for you today. 
What’s so specific about the original Dutch children’s rooms ? 

First of all , if you would see a bed made out of raw wood, recycled material or ‘bedstee’ ( bed in a cupboard-old fashioned Dutch way of sleeping) you might be on the right way!  Many parents build beds for children  themselves. DIY ideas are a second nature in this country. If someone is not that handy - why do not  look for an old furniture with character? Searching for not expensive, second hand furniture is definitely a sport in itself for many Dutch. You will also notice that they appreciate earth colours, natural looking materials and accessories with a history.  Vintage finds, personal and relaxed atmosphere will emanate from their children’s rooms. Mix and match, that’s their another great strength. And well - colours - it looks like nobody is afraid of them , but maybe that’s a theme for a next post….

Thank you VTwonen magazine for all the pictures and inspiration!
