We take you into the modern chic interior of Isabel, Rico and their two children Roqi and Vinz. The family lives in a stylish new-build home in Bakel in Brabant.

From rural house to chic new-build home

Isabel and Rico used to live in a large rural house that was struck by lightning in 2018. “There was a fire that made the house completely uninhabitable. We were therefore forced to find a temporary home to build something new on the site of their old house.” The new house was built in 9 months, because the twins were coming so the family wanted to be able to move in as soon as possible. The old house was very poky because of all the separate rooms. The residential wish for the new house was therefore to create a spacious feeling with a large living space, high windows and lots of light. The style of the old house was very rural, but a modern style suits them much better and that has also been fully applied in the current house. Since the family had lost everything due to the fire, the entire interior had to be bought new as well. It was not possible to think long about the choices, because it had to be finished as soon as possible. They have been living in the new house since 2019 and are ultimately very happy with the choices: "It turned out exactly as we had in mind."

The living space is the heart of the home

As usual in hospitable Brabant, we can come around the back. Here we enter the spacious hall with windows up to the ceiling that provide a lot of light. From the hall you walk through the black steel doors into the large living space. Here are the kitchen, dining area and sitting area. There is a wonderful scent in the house due to the scented candle that has been burning. You can see that someone lives here with a sense of interior, because the space is very well laid out. In the large living space, attractive corners have been created by working with large elements that determine the sitting area, dining area and kitchen. One of the statement items in the interior is corner sofa Annabelle Square by Room108. The seating area is fully utilized with this. All corners are connected to each other, so that it really is a living space. In short: wherever you are, you are connected in every place.

Modern chic with warm materials

Isabel describes her interior as modern chic. The basis is sleek with white walls, a light cast floor and black window frames. The neutral colors such as black, white and natural in combination with warm materials such as wood and fabric provide a chic and atmospheric whole.

“We bought the Annabelle Square corner sofa in the Mine fabric and the Shell color from Room108 & Gusj Market in Eindhoven. We saw the sofa there in the showroom and were immediately sold. We wanted it exactly as it was, in the same fabric and colour. So the choice was made quickly, because it was also very tasty! In addition, we bought the great Gusj brand here coffee table and the coffee table for about bank.”

“When I saw your giveaway to win back the purchase amount from the bank, I thought, I'm going to do my best for this. Rico said: “You never win anyway”. But the opposite is true, because we are the winners of the month of April!”

Meanwhile, there are already a number of friends and acquaintances with a Room108 sofa. After seeing Annabelle at Isabel and Rico's sofa, friends bought the exact same one. Other friends have model Annabelle in an even larger setup at home. After all, you can compose the sofa completely according to your wishes.

“Our favorite place on the sofa is the corner by the Ottoman, because you can really stretch out here and crawl into the cushions. We mainly sit here in the evenings when we watch TV together.”

Creeps of new houses

Isabel gets a lot of inspiration from various home furnishing stores, via Pinterest and via Instagram. When the children are older, Isabel would like to delve further into her passion for interior design. She doesn't want to leave this house anyway, but putting together and realizing such a completely new interior is completely her thing. “I would do it again in a heartbeat. When Rico and I walk into a new house, we always get the itch to do it all over again.”
