One of my Facebook friends told me about Manya and Rocco’s house. It’s an old rebuilt dike house in the village of Biervliet in the Dutch province of Zeelandic Flanders, with a beautiful view of the surrounding meadows. Manya and Rocco have now lived here for twelve years and have completely renovated the building from top to bottom. A lot of elements had to be restored or reconstructed and Manya and Rocco are still making adjustments.
When Manya was a little girl she went to markets with her father, who was an antiques dealer, looking for interesting items. She’s always loved collecting vintage things and upcycling furniture. She’s very creative. She crafts, paints, draws and sews. And you can see the results all around her home. Her work is displayed in every room.
