A light, neutral base provides a perfect backdrop for carefully selected furnishings. The family includes a 2-year-old daughter, so this furniture can stand up to toddler wear and tear as well.

“Our first impression of the area was that it was a really special neighborhood with really special old houses,” Neele says. “The house had everything that we were looking for. The only thing it did not have was room for a bath!” The painting on the wall instantly grabs the eye. It is a rental piece that the couple chose soon after they moved into their home. They were looking for a large statement piece and were instantly attracted to the serene artwork by the well-known Dutch artist Casper Faassen. “It’s kind of raw, with the letters, structure and texture, but at the same time it's really minimalistic with just a few lines. I also think it’s very well balanced. It’s not too perfect, so it looks really natural,” Neele says. “It’s also multifaceted. You never quite know what she’s thinking. She has something very melancholic about her. You can keep looking at it and discover something every time. In that way, it’s a little bit like looking at a fire — you can just look at it to enjoy looking at it.”
