recycling and natual materials

Summer style with a rustic touch in the holiday home

Hanne Peters-de Fockert from the German agency ”De Fockert” had a decoration challenge in winter 2021/2022. Fortunately, Hanne loves to solve such challenges. In addition to their German agency, Hanne and her husband Dirk run four dog-friendly rental houses "Ferienhaus Spunk" for families with dogs. The houses are decorated with man's best friend in mind.

The newest member of the holiday homes, "Spunk am Fluss", had been bought and was to be furnished. However, Hanne wanted to decorate in a different style than in the other 3 holiday homes. She wanted a Nordic, industrial style, and above all she would like to emphasize on recycling and natural materials such as leather and wood.

All the pieces fell into place

Hanne started with a rough drawing, a kind of mood board, in which she incorporated her experiences from the interior design field combined with previous projects. She visited Trademark Living again at the Nordstil trade fair in Hamburg, and after that the decor ideas sort of fell into place.

Hanne could suddenly imagine her fourth cottage with a beautiful old wooden display case, and she also fell in love with the Trademark Living dining tables made of recycled wood in combination with the classic Living chairs. In order to integrate the industrial look, she chose a simple and beautiful glass cabinet and a chest of drawers made of black lacquered iron. She found some great and rustic lamps in the Trademark Living range. Among other things, she decided on the classic Thormann pendant lamp made of iron. Hanne complemented the furnishings with wooden shelves and coffee tables, and she was mad about a pair of pouffes upholstered in beautiful camel leather, as well as a gorgeous green lounge chair.

The holiday home started to take shape

Hanne likes to mix materials and is excited about the more sustainable direction of the new style. As a finishing touch, she used small (or large) still lives with 3-5 decorative objects of different height, and she also added green- and berry-colored textiles and bowls. Her love for the four-legged friends was shown by small signs with funny quotes about dogs.

"It is exactly like I've imagined. The house is bright with white wooden walls and warm colors. A wonderful place and the feedback from the first guests was overwhelming,” says Hanne.

“It went just the way it should”

Throughout the process, Hanne was in touch with Lone at Trademark Living and "the process was fantastic," as she puts it. "I received my order confirmation with photos so I could keep track of my order. In addition, I was allowed to make a few changes, and it just went smoothly and quickly. And what was very important, I got my goods on time! Definitely not something you can take for granted nowadays. Lone was extremely helpful and competent. For example, I needed a few items in one corner, and then I called Lone. She was able to quickly give me a few suitable suggestions. The process was exactly as it should be."
