The best thing about life with kids in the city is
that our family and friends are so close by. I also appreciate the girls growing up in a multicultural place, where style and looks and homes may look very different from your own.
Our little corner of the city feels small and safe. We know the people who live here – the girls play in the backyard with our neighbours' children, and once in a while we eat dinner together. Or help each other out, should somebody need it. That is also something that I strongly cherish.
Our apartment is quite small so we use
lots and lots of storage options. I prefer closed storage boxes in all kinds of sizes, from tiny to large, and I use them for just about anything.
Our style is colourful and playful, and you'll find lamps, textiles and posters on the wall in the girls' room, that might as well have hung in our living room.
On the weekends, we enjoy
getting on the bike, and driving to the local playground. We drink coffee and talk while the girls play. A museum is also an option, but we all need to be in the mood for that.
Sometimes we go to our summer house and do nothing. That is such a lovely option if we've had a hectic week. We all relax there.
