..Floris Hovers Designs
Marjon Hoogervorst and Sandra Jacobs visited another Dutch designer for us ... Anne Olde Kalter from LaFarme, who lives with her partner Dirk Gelijsteen in one of those old charming little farms very near to Amsterdam. Their home is just amazing ... beautiful one of a kind furniture pieces combined with little treasures and lost-and-found gems ...
I am sure this home will bring you lot's of inspiration and some creative ideas ... starting with this great poster 'Ma'am step away from the computer'
Marjon's photography is again STUNNING!! I'm LOving this series so much becasue it is one thing to admire the work by designers but another to actually talk to them and see how they themself live.

The Designer Profile series is my absolute favortie column on BloesemLiving and I am very thankful to Marjon and Sandra for creating these unique, personal and interesting interviews for us. Sandra and Marjon visit well-known dutch designers in their own homes, asking them questions about their work and life and give us a really nice look into their own design homes.
