Let's Get Personal in the Netherlands with Marjon from Vorstin

Monday, 21 March 2011 by Irene Hoofs


The home of Dutch photographer Marjon Hoogervorst

D:: Dutch is ... a small country with a lot of creative people! 

E:: entrance, when entering our home you will notice our dog Mac and my son Milan who welcomes you enthousiastly at the door! 


S:: style, means your expression in what comes from your heart... 

I:: interesting places in my city, Hoofddorp, are... Hoofddorp is a village not far away from Amsterdam, Haarlem and the beach... it's between all important places for me to go... We live 10 minutes walking  from the forest where I walk a lot with my dog, play on the little beach and swim in the lake there with my son. For a lunch you can go to "het oude raadhuis". It's a place with a nice garden, a gallery and a little artshop with some nice design- and art pieces (to buy a present for yourself or a dear friend).

G:: gardening is something I... can't. Sometimes I buy some herbs, to cook with.... That's my only relationsship with "gardening" ;)

N:: new, in my home is... our dining table! (see image below)  Joost, my husband and I made this together with a little help of our son Milan. Because it's a puzzle table Milan liked it a lot! The legs of the table are from Danish designer Leif Jorgensen (Loop Stand Table). (in the picture above you see the making of...) 


H:: hobby, I always make time for... photographing, spending time with friends & family, drinking tea and... creating: in the biggest sense of the word. Specially with Milan, I love his fantasy world in what he creates. This all, is also a great reflection on life and myself. Working with my hands, clear up my mind.

O:: outfit, my favorite thing to wear is... my blue/white checkered dress from Froks (Denmark). I can combine it with a lot and can wear it in all weather conditions!


M:: magazines I love to read are... The ones I like the most changes from time to time. For now that are: Elle Decoration, FRAME, Items, CUT Magazine, VICE magazine (online), CODE, Object. And the Blogs, the speedy information delivery that goes with it, suits me fine. So hereby also some blogs I follow (after Bloesem ;): jenna diane, two do two, spoon-tamago, design-milk, designboom, dezeen, selfpublishbehappy

My favorite stylist (I'll say: concept designers, because they are more than a stylist) is AnoukB in work and in person! She has a special energy. We've a lot great ideas where we're working on...  


I also love to work with Tatjana and Ben, Studio Aandacht! They both have great ideas and concepts. Check their site and you'll see what I mean ;)

I think Stephanie Rammeloo is also very talented! (I didn't work with her before): 

And Irene Cecile, she is not a stylist, but she has a great view to the world!!! Very funny and inspiring... 


How wonderful to finally see Marjon's home finally! For a long time I had been hoping on a series from this very talented Dutch interior design photographer! I have been sharing her work for the last couple of year with you and I hope you enjoy her work as much as I do. Pure and real photography with a subtle sense of warmth and emotion.  Here you can find Marjon aka Vorstin her website.
