Welcome to Shabbilicious Sunday….
Each week in this series I share with you a visit to a home of one of our ‘shabbilicious’ friends. What could be better than to take a tour around their home, have a chat and get to know a little more about them.
Today we are heading to Germany to meet Yvonne of Villa Koenig. Originally from Cologne, Yvonne has lived in the countryside there since she was a young girl.
When I asked Yvonne how she would describe her decorating style, she said “I love to mix old and new things. Most of our furniture is white and it gives our home a light and breezy look. I change the colours of pillows, blankets etc. every season. And there are always flowers…. I can’t live without flowers”.
Having followed Yvonne’s journey for many years, I personally love seeing how she changes the vignettes in her home with each new season.
As we move through her home, you’ll see how white furniture provides the neutral canvas in all of Yvonne’s rooms and just the accessories change colour and style; from coastal seahorses and starfish in summer to the gorgeous plum pot of berries and hydrangeas in fall.
Asked if she had a favourite piece of furniture, Yvonne said “I really like some of our old furniture, which I have from my grandfather, like the bedside table. Right now my favourite piece of furniture is my homemade shelf in the living room, which I enjoy decorating. I also like the homemade ladder which is hanging over the dinning table”.
Yvonne offered this advice on decorating your home…. Don’t look too much to trends. Do whatever you like, because it is your home and you need to feel comfortable in it. Find your own style and decorate your home in that way.
Yvonne shares her 3 passions on her blog Villa Koenig… decorating, baking and photography. There are lots of lovely recipes too. Although her blog is written in German, I just use the Google translate app for Chrome to translate the pages to English.
Yvonne even has a published book (in German) – read more about it HERE.
You can visit Yvonne at her blog Villa Koenig… please pop over and browse through her many beautiful posts. There is a navigation bar at the top with links to specific topics.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us Yvonne!
