“Our garden was one big forest”

For many people, a park is a great place to spend time. In the usual “searching from the inside” section, we also look outside regularly. Today the well-known Natalie Tanat park. We actually looked inside it in January 2020 and March 2021. Now we’re curious about the park!

Natalie lives with her husband Henk, son Mick and their dogs Baby and Lola and Canary Mo in Almelo. The family has been living on Geraniumstraat in De Riet for two years. Natalie has been working at GGD in Enschede for over twenty years. I recently started making pots. “I think it would be really nice to have my own in-house shop. A shop with products in my own style.”

Love the zoo and animals

“Our garden was a big woodland when we moved here,” begins Natalie. “The woman who lived here loved the animals in her garden, like birds and butterflies. It was full of trees, plants and berries, especially for animals. But a lot was broken, so it had to be moved out. I left some things that were still good, and we also feel love for Animals and the garden.

Everything is new in Nathalie’s front yard. “The fences have been removed and it is a beautiful green. The garden is not ready yet, front and back. This is because everything has to be in order inside first, that was our priority. We started outside in September last year.”

Ibiza and Mediterranean style

Nathalie has expanded the interior design style from the inside out. The house and garden are in Ibizan and Mediterranean style. I also like a lot of light, and it makes me happy. It gives me a feeling of freedom, a feeling of vacation.”

When the sun rises, Natalie opens the bay window doors. “The curtains flutter in the wind, giving off a cool feel of summer. I do a lot by feeling when it comes to interior choices. What I don’t really like is the tightness, you have to let nature take its course. Let the grass grow sometimes.”

Reusing things

“I love thrift stores. Everything in the garden has been reused, just like inside. Old tables or benches I’m refurbishing. I really enjoy doing it. I always check what I still have in the house. I save a lot, and if I I want to make something new, I’ll see if I can do it with the things I still have.”

Feedback about her garden is positive. “The environment loves it. They think it’s an image that gives you a holiday feeling. It’s really good to hear that, because that’s really something we wanted to create.”

Different angles in the garden

Natalie’s garden is not straightforward. “I think this is the best. We have different angles to set up. A seating area and a bench and a high table on the side of the house. We can eat well here. We are now working on the last part.”

French doors

“The picture shows how we live from the inside out. The interior is harmonized inside and out, so that there is a good transition. With a little sun, I open the doors and let the noise from outside in. I love nature. The buzzing of bees, the rustle of the wind through the trees and of course the chirping of course Birds. Enjoy fully!”

Work in garden picking and driveway renovation

What desires are still there? “I work in a picking garden, which could be a little nicer. I’ll see how I do it. What is the best time to sow and what plants are useful. Our garage driveway also needs a nice revamp. Not done yet.”

Natalie thinks she never finished her garden. “I love to do this a lot. Sometimes it’s a euro and a half basket from the thrift store you’re closing down, I think that’s cool. I also hope to inspire people. First, look what you still have at home, piss it off and see how far it can turn out.” into something beautiful.”
