{friday finds: vt wonen loves to paint}

vt 12-2013 cover zonder rug en fluo-1

VT Wonen is a fabulous home interiors magazine from the Netherlands. I haven’t seen the magazine in real life, but their on-line presence is outstanding. Great images. They’re not afraid of color. I love how they get a little crazy when they paint.


Painting the ceiling and bringing the color down the wall, creates a cozy feel to a room with high ceilings. Add a couple of pieces of furniture painted in the same color family and you have a one-of-kind look for your room.


Can’t find that perfect rug? Try painting one on your floor. To pull off this look you’ll have to move to a Scandinavian country, paint all your walls white, then paint your floor. You’ll find  more “moody blues” right here and here.


The ever popular typography gone wild. Vtwonen suggests using this large type in corner or room with high ceilings.

Did you see any ideas that inspired you? It takes “I’m going to paint the kids’ rooms” to a whole new level. Just something to think about when it’s time to paint at your house. So many ideas and so little time.
