Your home should reflect who YOU are and the parts of your story that you want to highlight – whether it’s through the art you hang on your walls or the colours and textures you are attracted to (it doesn’t have to be literal!). Putting your personal stamp on your living space is a magical feeling. What brings you JOY and makes you feel at home?
I love to have heart-felt conversations and talk about what really matters. I will listen to what you want out of your house and translate it into an inspiring and workable plan for you. I think Winston Churchill was on point when he said:
” We shape our dwellings and afterwards our dwellings shape us.”
So here’s the plan, I'll make you fall in love with your home so you get to focus on living your happily ever after in it (even if you don’t plan on living there forever and ever).
And a bit more about me…
Once upon a time, in a country far away called The Netherlands, I lived in a small town very close to Amsterdam. It was a great place to be surrounded by culture and a mix of both old (like historical buildings) and new (like fashion and trendy cafes). This influenced my taste and I am still attracted to a mix of classic, vintage and modern pieces. My husband and I moved to the beautiful Niagara area in Ontario, Canada in 2004 and we love being just a short drive away from beautiful trails and vineyards. This, too, has left its mark on my taste and I love a fresh and relaxed feel in our home.
I received my certification in Interior Decorating in 2013 and it's my passion to help creative souls (yes I'm talking about you!) express themselves in their spaces.
I drink a lot of tea, I usually have more than one book on the go and growing up I dreamed of being a pioneer (Little House on the Prairie-style). I love to make a big mess in the kitchen (the cleaning up not so much) and eating is my favourite. I love my laptop and iphone, but can’t seem to kick the habit of writing lists & ideas on scraps of paper. It goes without saying that I love handwritten letters.
What about YOU?
That’s what I can’t wait to find out! I want to know what makes your heart jump with joy, so I can figure out how to surround you with things you love and with those personal touches that make a house a home.
