How do you describe your style?

My style is tough; a lot of black as a base both in- and outside with more and more Scandinavian influences. In addition, I often design with naturals; from linen to coarse fabrics or rough leather and I like to add unique pieces that I find in French flea markets. I love wandering through flea and antique markets looking for crazy, cool items. With us, the outside is almost as important as inside and that's why I like verandas with a large canopy so that inside and outside flow into each other and you can spend much more time outside. Inspired by nature, I have been working as an interior designer for 25 years and as a garden stylist for a number of years. Black is on the rise, although I still make enough designs that don't involve a splash of black.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I am inspired by the environment where I live. That is between the nature reserve De Weerribben and Giethoorn, on the side of the beautiful forests. When I ride my Harley in the evening, it is ultimate relaxation and I always come home full of inspiration. The gardens, facades and colors that I encounter during my tour I apply in my designs. Besides traveling and touring, a day in the city can also work very well as a source of inspiration for me!
