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….
