Verhoef says his look is a combination of a variety of influences — from the punk rock he loved as a kid to the graphic design that he works with now. Although there's a definite mix of styles, all of Verhoef's decor is simple, functional and beautiful.
The palisander wood console in the living room is a 1950s find. Verhoef found the light-up "E" online — the piece belonged to a retired graphic designer.
The yellow living room floor lamp and black and white armchair are two of Verhoef's favorite finds. "While I think it's fun to occasionally sell some stuff and replace it again, these three pieces are likely staying in my house for a very, very long time," he says.
The couch is one of the few new pieces that Verhoef bought when he moved in. The Per Weiss–designed split-back couch came with a chaise and was bought at a nearby store in the Hague.

The kitchen had been remodeled by the previous owner about 10 years before Verhoef moved in. The simple materials and finishes went perfectly with Verhoef's classic midcentury look, so he left the space as it was.
The table in the dining room was originally a much lighter hue. It didn't quite go with the rest of Verhoef's furniture, so he refinished it to more of a walnut color. The rug is made of tiny bits of leather.
The chairs in the dining room are a mishmash of vintage pieces from Marktplaats, the Netherlands' version of eBay. Although he doesn't know much about them, Verhoef did find out that the chair with the red seat was designed by famed Danish designer Hans Olsen.

The original parquet floors have seen some substantial wear since their 1931 installation. Verhoef hopes to restore the floors properly so they can last many more years. Verhoef and his girlfriend brought back the pendant lights in the dining room from a trip to Morocco.
Quite a bit of the art in the house is made by Verhoef, including the "The end" typography and papier-mâché mustache in the study.

A quirky wooden wolf's head, found in a secondhand shop, is a playful addition to the art in the bedroom. Verhoef doesn't necessarily hunt for new pieces; he simply purchases pieces that he finds, loves and can afford.
