A home tour in a picturesque National Monument in The Netherlands

In the picturesque National Monument known as the Three Locks in Nieuwendijk, a young family has made their home in an old steam pumping station. While the building's exterior retains its historic character, the interior has been entirely transformed—and with great success. Take a look inside with Tonone.

The renovation was complete, but the spacious rooms lacked cohesion and felt too serious. The family sought something exciting, and they found it at Kavel 84 in Waalwijk. The interior stylists were trusted from the start, allowing them the freedom to be creative. Every idea was embraced, no matter how unconventional.

The home tour begins at the entrance, where the interior stylists paid homage to the building's past with wavy blue wallpaper. The calm wall colours create a serene atmosphere. However, the tranquillity ends as you move into the living spaces, where window frames are painted a striking fluorescent pink.

To complete the interior and create a sense of security, the rooms were decorated with rugs and a comfortable armchair under the staircase. A cosy spot, illuminated by the Bolt Long floor lamp in Daybreak Rose, offers a retreat for family members to enjoy a book.

Overall, the interior of this young family's home has been transformed from nondescript to highly expressive. The best description of the interior might be the quote in the kitchen: 'HappyHappyJoyJoy!'
