When Manfung and Angel founded OHMYHOME, their hope was to provide “a place where people (could) find little treasures to spice up their home.” Their shop’s vision is clearly realized in their treasure-filled, 2-bedroom home in Rotterdam – a city in South Holland. Purchased in 2010, the 115-year-old space was in need of a major overhaul. At first these necessary renovations seemed too much of an undertaking for the family, but the space’s natural light won them over and they hit the ground running. “We replaced literally everything! New kitchen, new bathroom, new walls, new wooden floor(s), new doors…” the couple says. The clear goal of creating a bright, Scandinavian-inspired home was what kept the 3-month-long project on track.
While bringing their moodboard to life was an inspiring process, it wasn’t without its challenges. The biggest thorn in Manfung and Angel’s side was the narrow staircase that leads into their home. They had to rent a special elevator to bring the furniture in through the window upstairs. It’s these little valleys; however, that make the peak at the end that much more rewarding. Sitting back and enjoying the fruits of their labor didn’t last long though. The couple brought baby Levyn home a mere 3 months ago, and this new addition has the family on the hunt for a new home. That being said, if you just can’t resist what you see, pack it up and head out to The Netherlands. You very well could make this delightful home your own. Enjoy! —Garrett
