Let’s Get Personal in the Netherlands with Eline Pellinkhof….


The Home of Eline Pellinkhof

D:: Dutch is… lots and lots of bicycles and flower shops, the canals of Amsterdam, the traditional sweet & salt gums called ‘Drop’ and the Dutch stew.

E:: Entrance... when entering my home you will notice my bike standing at the bottom of an awful navy and peach staircase which is in desperate need of a new coat of white paint. At the top of the stairs are my two lovely, curious cats.


S:: Style, means… a combination of all the things that you like and make you happy.

I:: interesting places in my city, Haarlem are… the old city centre with its narrow streets and quaint shops like Sjakies, Juffie’s Warehouse and De Wereld van Jansje, but also the fact that Haarlem is so close to the beach and close to lovely small villages like Spaarndam.

G:: Gardening is something I… love and do a lot. I have a allotment 15 minutes away, with a garden cottage and lots of flowery plants.

N:: New in my home is… a gigantic iMac computer, and some old-fashioned wooden spools.


H:: Hobby… I always make time for…gardening, friends, eating out and traveling. My work involves designing crafts materials like stamps, printed paper and fabric, but unfortunately I seldom have the time to work with them myself. 

O:: Outfit… my favorite things to wear are…stylish knitted cardigans and jeans and my two silver rings. You’ll never see me in high heels. 


M:: Magazines… I love to read are…VT wonen, 101 Woonideeën, Flow, Uppercase, Marie Claire idées, and online: By Fryd 

E:: Enjoy… I can't live without…being my own boss, having my own work space and garden to go to, watching movies  


Eline works as a freelance designer and illustrator and she just finished her own book, called: 'Eline's Home' , I believe it is only in Dutch available unfortunately, to see a glimpse of her new book, click here or just treat yourself and order here… in a previous life Eline drew and deisgned prints for children wear and was always looking for the latest trends in the kids fashion industry, but nowadays Eline works on collections for hobby materials, designing stamps and patterned papers… all of it you can find on and via her colorful blog!




 Thank you Eline!

    Ik heb nu al twee keer gekeken en probeer alles in me op te nemen, er is zoveel moois. Mijn dochter is ook al enthousiast over het borduurwerk op de wand en zoiets wil ze op haar nieuwe kamer. Ik ga dus snel op zoek naar een leuk patroon.

    Hoi Eline,

    Je bloesemblog is helemal geweldig, hoe krijg je toch iedere keer die
    inspiratie heel bijzonder dat je die gave bezit.
    Heel jammer vind ik het dat het helemaal in het engels is geschreven.
    Misschien kun je daar wat aan doen?
    Heel veel suskses met alle werkzaamheden en ik kom graag weer op
    je blog kijken.

  7. Nancy

    I’m a big fan of her book and designs! And now of her house too 😉 Thanks for showing!

  8. Irene

    Het verbaast me totaal niet dat er zelfs aan de totaal andere kant van de wereld – in het prachtige KL – aandacht is voor Eline. ALLES wat ze bedenkt is een grote HIT maar de Eline Huis Serie is wel de klapper van de laatste tijd en het inspireert mensen tot de meest bijzondere creaties.
    Gefeliciteerd Eline en Irene, dankjewel voor deze mooie blog!!!
    Lieve groetjes uit zonning maar koud Groningen.


  9. Sanne

    Ik zou ook wel een kopie van dat patroon willen om na te schilderen!
    Dus Willy; als je er een hebt gevonden hou ik me aanbevolen :)

  10. HappyHomemakerUK

    The cross-stitch is an amazing idea – I’d bet that starts showing up in other places. Really unique. Love her fresh, colorful home. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Nancy Comelab

    Insanely inspiring, thank you so much for sharing!

  12. Cinderella Patch

    It’s wonderful to see something out of the ordinary. Your interiors are so happy and cheerful and I love all the details you’ve added.
    Congratulations from a BYW classmate and admirer!

  13. BIG_fan

    I heard through the grapevines that her book “Eline’s Huis” will soon be published in English !!!
    Eline will surely keep us all informed on her own blog 😉

  14. Monica Lee

    What a clever idea…the painted cross stitch! That certainly gets my creative wheels moving!

  15. Chuzai Living

    What a gorgeous home!! I love the branches with the birds, wall painting with the design looking like a cross stitch and many other things. Unique and beautiful!

  16. Diana

    I agree with other posters – that cross-stich painted wall is amazing!! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

  17. Erica Cooper

    Thank you Bloesem for sharing Eline with us today!
    Thank you Eline for the tour, your home is lovely! You are very talented and I look forward to going over to your blog to learn more about you and your work. I love collecting handmade things as well and for many years loved cross-stitch.
    Best wishes to you both for a creative day!

  18. patsy

    Wonderful ideas! I love the painted embroidery rose! Patsy from HeARTworks

  19. Marram Studio

    The cross stitch painted wall is gorgeous it reminds me of the dutch designer Kiki van Eijk. She did these wonderful Kiki Carpets a few years ago – rugs with oversized roses in a cross stitch style.

  20. Frences

    I’m a huge fan of Eline and I totally love everything she’s painting, designing, making and I’m in a lucky position to be in her Design Team. I’m so proud of that. Eline, you’re the best and you’re house is lovely, warm en so you 😉
