Today our vintage interiors peeps series is snooping around a fantastic vintage home in the Netherlands. Its owners, two passionate vintage collectors, have lovingly brought together furniture and decorative pieces from different decades to create a cosy home and garden.
The owner of our house peep, Kay, has collected these fantastic Fifties Cortendorf wall masks while the vintage cameras belong to her husband.

Vintage books (the covers are by Dick Bruna) make the perfect wall deco.

Kay also has a passion for Fifties pastel tableware from Dutch potteries. Here you see a nice display of tableware from Petrus Regout in Maastricht.

The chairs are old cafe chairs from a German fleemarket. The flower pot lamp is by the Danish designer Verner Panton, bought at a flea market in Denmark.
