A Project For

Our son Ischa




the Netherlands


I bought the crib and the dresser online on a site similar to Ebay. The closet I bought on a flea market. At first I wanted a blue with yellow room (we knew it was a boy) so I searched for blue or yellow furniture. When I found the yellow furniture I was immediately sold.  We changed rooms at 8 month's pregnancy and we had had already decorated the wall of this room with a gray plaid wallpaper. So the combination of yell0w and gray was born.

Design Inspiration

I wanted a room with an vintage feel, DIY-projects and in a few years changeable to a toddlers room.

Decorating Style

Eclectic and vintage.

Project Details

As I mentioned above, the furniture is second handed. The garland, the quilt, the pompoms and the lampshade are made by me. The painting with the giraffes was made by my sister. The rug is from Ikea and the typecase is a Christmas gift from the company I work at.

Favorite Items

I love the crib, the garland and the quilt.


If you are combining second hand furniture, make sure you choose similar colours (or paint in similar colours) so it won't feel cluttered.
