Saar lives together with her husband and three children in an old beautiful house in The Hague. She's capturing precious moments in her daily life in illustrations, paintings and photos.
* Many of the photos on your blog were taken in your house. Do you change things around in your house to keep it varied?
I often change things in my house. Not because of the pictures, but because I love doing so. I constantly change things around, evaluate, maybe change some colours, evaluate again and so on. As a child it was my main hobby: changing my room or changing rooms with my brother or sister. My poor mother! I never heard her complain though.
* What's your favourite object in your house?
My favourite object in the house is the lamp above my table. I had to search for a long time to find the right one and I've chosen this particular one, because it brings all the furniture together.
* What does home mean to you?
Home means a lot to me. It's the place where the family comes together. It's the place where we laugh, talk, cry, dance, create, read and relax.
It's also my working space, so I spend a lot of time at home. My home is a reflection of who I am. A lot of things are made by me or the children, found in a shop or outside, gifts from friends, family or ancestors and souvenirs from travels. Most things have a story and some are just beautiful or useful.
I like my home to be simple and light, so I can throw away pretty easily when it feels like 'too much'.
I often like to add little things that reflect the season to keep home in touch with outside.
