A beautiful home in Switzerland ~ Swiss Style

Remember that I told you about my mouth having a life of its own?
That it does what it wants and completely takes over my brain, or in this case, my hands?
Let me explain.
A few weeks ago I showed you the living space of Marian, my Dutch friend here in Switzerland. {If you missed it, look here to see it.} My mouth then made a little comment, meaning, my thoughts went all the way down and landed in my hands, who did what they where told to type, namely this:
{I’ll see if I can find a nice Swiss lady who doesn’t mind me lurking around her house…}
Well, this was one of the few moments I was happy that my running-around-like-a-crazy-woman-mind had done this, because that same afternoon I got an email… from a very nice Swiss lady… saying that she didn’t mind me lurking around in her house!
I fell of my chair and had to read it twice, just to make sure my mind wasn’t playing tricks on me.
So I emailed back and two weeks later I met Daniela.
Daniela was reading my blog as a silent reader and she was so friendly (she truly is!) to invite me to her home. Well, needless to say that for a professional peeper like me,
it was an invite I couldn’t refuse!
And boy do I like her home!
We not only live 40 minutes away from each other, her love for Scandinavian and country styling, white and wood was right up my street. I love that she does what she thinks is right for her house, seeing that here in Switzerland houses are either very modern (think a lot of glass and square houses) or very old fashion (think Heidi in the Alps). So stepping into her home which is totally renovated, mixing tradionational styles with the comfort of today, made me very happy that I had a big mouth who started this all!
Have a stroll around the first floor of her home, with the little guesthouse attached to the outside seating area. Her fitted kitchen made with old wood, her new but with a nod to the old style fireplace and her curtains from Ikea with a little Daniela touch on them. I truly was flattered that she asked me to come and take pictures and I think they show that her
Home is truly where the Heart is!

Daniela is in the process of starting a blog of her own,
so she will not remain silent for much longer!

* Thank you Daniela for letting us have a glimpse into your home! *

I hope you enjoyed it, see you soon!

    Yet again the karma that comes with blogging amazes me. A new friend for you, a nosey peep at a beautiful home for us and when you let us know a new blog to follow.

    Daniela’s home is just beautiful. I could just imagine preparing a meal in that gorgeous kitchen. I love her taste in furniture as well. Please let us know when she starts blogging! :-)
