Do you like looking inside people? We also! Freelance editor Francine takes over the section ‘Looking inside at…’, but what does her home in The Hague look like? She takes us through her authentic home, located in a side street of the cozy Koningsplein.

“I have been living in this beautiful apartment for two years now, where I am very happy along with me.”


“It is a characteristic Hague building with many authentic features such as ceiling ornaments, two fireplaces and ensuite doors. I immediately fell in love with the beautiful finish of the apartment and the stylish kitchen.”

“My style can best be described as Scandinavian, calm and modern. A Scandinavian interior is characterized by simplicity and neutral colours. I got my furniture from everywhere, from Ikea to a design store. I love to scour the web for beautiful items that can form a whole together. I then like to supplement this with personal items such as the books I read and photos I take.”

“The place in the house where I am most often is behind my desk. Here I do my freelance work, write down new ideas or read a book, really my creative place. From the desk I have a view of the street, which also allows me to look outside and occasionally see a neighbor pass by. Another favorite place is my conservatory/dining room, where I’ve had many enjoyable dinner and game nights.”


“In the summer my balcony is a nice place to relax. It is not very big, but on a sunny day I have sun all day long, which makes it the ideal place to read a book, have a drink or just relax. I think that’s a very big plus about this apartment anyway: the large windows let in a lot of light.”

“The apartment is located in a side street of the cozy Koningsplein, a great area to live! Here you will find a nice mix of Hagenezen and no shortage of restaurants, cafes and shops. I dine in the Prins Hendrikstraat or on the Prins Hendrikplein, I do shopping at the nice boutiques in the Weimarstraat and lunch can be had in the Reinkenstraat or the Piet Heinstraat. The beach and the old center of The Hague can also be reached in no time. So I never have to be bored here.”
