a vanlifers homebase

We are #Vanlifers, but we do have a home build of stone and wood with a big yard and a safe garage for our treasured van to seek shelter from the harsh winter climate Holland throws at us.

HOME
So in Wintertime, we seek shelter in this place we call home.
Our home where we hibernate, restore our tiny home on wheels, celebrate the holidays, build a snowman, hike through the frozen fields of Waterland and prepare ourselves for the next summer.

Our home interior reflects who we are as a family. All our 5 characters, hobbies, passions, needs, tastes, experiences and preferences are present in every single space.

Our travels in our beloved van is a huge part of our lives. Those memories belong to the best times of our lives and our hearts just fills up with love and excitement just thinking about all the adventures to come.
So to represent this part of our lives we found this two gorgouse Graphic-art prints that reflect our travels perfectly!

When I saw these two posters from Vissevasse immediately thought of a few of our own photo’s we took years ago that had exactly that feel to it!

We love nature and we really like to take nature into our home. We have a big collection of plants and palms in our home. It turned in quite an addiction… to collect as many beautiful green plants and place them in every room and corner to clean ur air, provide oxygen and make us feel happy!

Our home also feels like a place we can plant our own roots. A place we can grow old in. A place we feel safe and worm. And a place filled with Love, Beauty, and Memories.

Home is where the heart is. My heart is always with my family, so on the road, our home is our van, and when we are not traveling, here is the place we love to stay.

Treasure and print your photo Memories!

So many pictures!  But all digitally! And we almost never take the time to do something with them, and that’s such a shame!
I know that my parents used to paste all of our developed pictures in an album. And on the pace we’ve been going there isn’t going to be an album for my kids!!! Well as a photographer we can’t let that happen! We are Printing them all!

Time isn’t an excuse anymore now!
With Moonylab I printed my 60 favorite insta-pics! on small square photo prints on beautiful think mate paper! It was so easy, it took me 10 minutes to order and they came in super fast and we LOVE it!!! Do you ever take your photo’s off your screen and on to paper?

Moonylab is offering all of my readers a 10% discount using the code Wildandboho10 while placing your order!
YAY!!!

I would love to hear how you guys treasure your digital photo’s in the real world!

A big Thank you to Moonylab for sponsoring this post. As usual, all thoughts and opinions are always our own.

Room tour of our bohemian styled interior

Let’s give you a room tour through our Bohemian/eclectic styled interior Livingroom, Hallway and kitchen.
We love furniture with a story or personal meaning. We like a pretty styled home and interior, but we do have kids with toys… how we combine those two. And we have a lot of plants in our home.
A few words to describe our style: Bohemian, eclectic, Vintage, industrial.

So take a look around and let me know what you think!

We are constantly changing and evolving as individuals and as a family. And so is our home.
We will always keep you updated on re-styled corners and rooms in our home here on Youtube and Instagram.

Creative life 2018

We went “where the Creative things are” at the Creative Life Event.
And we sure got ourselves a big dose of creativity and inspiration!
From the moment we stepped in, until the moment we had to leave we were talking to amazingly talented people and getting so many ideas and tips from everyone.

Sadly our little baby Quinn suddenly got a high fever and was burning up the poor thing! So we just had to leave.
We sure wish we could have stayed much longer to participate in some workshops or attend a seminar… But the baby always goes first.
Hey, that’s #Momlife No worries… next year I will be there for sure to make up for lost time! Already looking forward to Creative Life 2019!

So for everyone who likes to be creative, get inspired and like to meet other creatives… I highly recommend this event! We loved it!

Watch our recap video to see how it was and who we’ve met.

About the Vlog:
Here I collect all our adventures of our family in photo and video stories. With our photography and videography, we try to show how we experience this world and illustrate that feeling of being close and connected to each other as a family. Nothing fancy, just the five of us, living our lives, going on road trips, cuddling on the couch, loving each other, and keeping our baby girls close to us. Honest, sincere, real images. Take a look into our lives and feel free to leave a comment Love, Jolanda
