Dutch:: is...our homeland. Something we are, but can’t put our finger on.
Entrance:: when entering my home you will notice ... the colorful wallpaper, original wallpaper from the 70’s. I bought it several years ago from two lovely 85+ ladies.
Style:: means... identity.
Inspiration:: comes from... the smallest things and is something that suddenly pops up in your head.
Gourmet:: is... Dutch food. From pannecakes to 'stampot'(= mashed potato with vegetables). We really like typical Dutch food and we know that so many traditional dishes have been forgotten about by Dutch people. It was fun for us to re-discover some of these tradional and delicious dishes while working on our cookbook about Dutch Food: “Raapsteeltje (h)eerlijk eten in Nederlands” we ENJOY our new discovered meals!
New:: in my home is... our felt carpet in the shape of an owl. With this carpet you can make your own color-range like a puzzle.
Hobby:: I always make time for... reading. I just love to read, just give me a book and I read it. And since I have a garden I more and more start to enjoy gardening and growing my own vegetables (on a small scale)
Make:: I start creating when... I have a deadline. The weeks, days before a deadline we are sketching and making prototypes and experiments, that’s also creating.. But when the deadline is coming we are starting to make things with a purpose.
