A new look

This is the new look in the downstairs hallway.

I´ve had the little cabinet for YEARS, as a matter of fact, it was my very first thrift buy.
I bought it together with my first boy friend at a huge indoor thrift market in Rotterdam.
We had to carry it all the way with us in public transport with a stopover, and then walk with it.
It probably had just about every color there is in its life :-) 
After all these years it found a house where it fits perfectly

Just recently it looked like this

Here it is without its little marble top. 
The same marble we have on the floor through out the house.
It looks just about the same as the mirror used to look. 
The mirror came from a favorite store, Xenos in Holland.
I matched the cabinet with it.

Recently I am obsessed with chalk paint and with the color grey so these 2 are the first to get the new look.

On a photo technical note:
As I am practicing my photo taking skills.
 I have another shot to share. The only decent one among the 2000 or so I took….
Still not perfect but the color and sharpness FINALLY both right in the same shot….
I did not do to much to this one afterwards :-)

I got the birds via rebeccascapriochos

In the same hallway there is this little corner
Funny how this chair takes up so much attention is it?
This chair came with the house. It is a stunner, but far from comfy to be honest.
So in a perfect place here.

Leaving you with this shot, with a little more detail of the hallway with the "wall of fame" where my mum is slightly tilted, opposite the mirror.


  1. What a beautiful hallway - and I love the arch and the brown leather armchair! xo Anja

  2. Hi Anja!!! Thank you! The chair came with the house, like many more chairs, but this one will now forever travel with me!! Still working on more pictures, but taking photos inside is one of my many blogging challenges….In this post there is another little peak with another one of the chairs
    need to make more pictures soon, there has been some more changes around here. X Carol
