This house in the centre of Haarlem, a charming city only 15 minutes away from Amsterdam, is the perfect example of what happens when the French chic meets the Dutch gezellig.
The passion for healthy cooking, art and fashion of the French owner perfectly coexists with the typical Dutch design of the building. Stephanie says it`s the house who picked her and not the other way around. After my visit this weekend I can easily understand why.
Two large windows are facing the street and, while at the table to enjoy the delicious ginger and lemon tea and the home made treats made by Stephanie, people walking in front of them – her neighbours – were waving their hands to us. This warm house gives you the impression that you are always welcome!
Through her Appetit Voyage project, Stephanie is regularly organizing cooking workshops and wine tasting sessions, as one of her wishes is to pass on to the Dutch – and to anyone interested – the secrets, advantages and, most of all, the fun of healthy cooking and eating.
But she does not stop here! The Christmas Pop-up Shopping Experience on December 14th is another initiative of hers and you are welcome to join.
In the meantime, here are some photos taken in this beautiful, welcoming and joyful home:
