MUK VAN LIL

The decoration of this house is a faithful reflection of the personality of its owner, Ilonka. She and her husband, Eric, bought it more than twenty years ago and her wonderful garden - which then didn't seem as attractive as it was now - was what prompted them to do so. “The interior of the house was quite damaged, but we didn't care. We immediately saw that he had many possibilities, ”Ilonka tells us. They took care of the works themselves. "We changed the floor, the heating system, the windows, plastered and painted the walls ..."

In the back of the garden, Ilonka and her husband built a porch that also functions as an extension of the interior, but outdoors. "Furniture, wall decoration, plants, cushions ... We have created a cozy living area, where we spend good moments of tranquility," they explain.

The porch has a great depth. Inside, wood is the real protagonist - it is present in ceiling, walls and furniture - and, together with the earth tones of the cushions, the feeling is of total placidity. For this corner a custom bench was made, which integrates an auxiliary table at each end and much lower space to store the firewood of the barbecues.

At the other end of the garden, a dining area was created. This pleasant corner, decorated with white furniture, is delimited by a natural stone cladding, different from gravel. As the cobblestones also did not offer a smooth surface, they were covered with a carpet that provides stability and allows the chairs to be easily moved.

The dining room wall was painted in olive green. The same tone that was used in the room -image of the right- to cover a lower plinth that contrasted with the pastel pink of the upper part. Thus it was possible to give continuity to the environments. “Since I don't like all the dining room furniture to be the same, I have combined the table with six chairs that share the same color, but have different legs,” explains Ilonka.

Ilonka's character and DIY ideas are present throughout the house. Above all, in some of the pieces we find in the decoration of the room, such as the showcase under these lines. "It's from Ikea, but I painted the legs with a spray in a golden hue to give it a new look." Among all, he recognizes that the rocking chair that we see in the image on the right is his favorite piece of furniture. “The idea of ​​buying it had been around my head for several years.

"I am a kind, friendly and open person, and that is reflected in the colors I use," he tells us. “I really like pastel tones, and I alternate them with whites and creams.
