Because life is more than just Decor. Soulful living.

So you probably noticed I have mixed things up a bit on the blog, writing about more serious things in life as well as interior design. Life has changed for me in the past two years and although I am still madly passionate about eclectic decor, vintage furniture, art and design (oh yes!), I would like to build my blog into something more wholesome than just pretty pictures of beautiful homes and gardens. Soulful living, right?

Moving abroad as a family with young children: settling in Valencia

Moving abroad on your own is one thing, but when you have two kids, a husband and a couple of cats tagging along it is a different ball game. Especially when half of the family is Dutch and the other half British (hello Brexit!). It can feel pretty overwhelming to think about all the paperwork you have to get organised, in particular when you are not fluent in the language of your new country yet. Our first quarter was one with ups and downs.

About variety, adventure and staying true to yourself

We go through most of our lives wondering "what we will be when we grow up...", what to do next, whether what we have chosen to do is actually making us happy...and how we can make the necessary changes. I don't know many people who are just happy with their lives, do you? Everyone is always chasing the next thing. Did you ever write lists down of goals and dreams you have for yourself? Or when going through rollercoasters in life? I find it can be very therapeutic and organises your mind when you feel overwhelmed.
