Interiorator VOLUME – from blog to book
Over the years, I’ve done my best to create my own niche as a blogger by focusing on long-form interviews and original photography. And that is exactly why I chose to go on a trip through Europe this year to interview the people who have influenced me the most – and to photograph their homes and favorite locations in all their splendor. Interiorator VOLUME will feature incredible life stories, exclusive photography and totally doable tips and tricks that will help you visualize your life story in your interior. It’s going to be colorful, it’s going to be sophisticated and it’s going to be highly readable. Long story short: Interiorator VOLUME will be one hell of a book, if I can say so myself. And it would not have seen the light of day without the one and only Ingrid Robers, who is not only my former teacher and one of my dearest friends, but also the art director of Interiorator VOLUME.
Interiorator VOLUME will be published in April, 2018 by Lannoo.
Salon Residence 2017 – the interior design event of the year
I couldn’t think of a more fitting place to tell you more about Interiorator VOLUME than Salon Residence 2017. After all, it is the Dutch interior design event of the year. During this year’s edition, eighteen of the best interior designers in the Netherlands will to transform the prestigious Singer Laren into a jaw-droppingly beautiful boutique hotel. And if that isn’t enough, you can also attend one of the many master classes at the Singer Theater. On Friday September 29 at 11 AM, I am not only going to tell you why I chose to break every blogging rule in the book and take some time off to paint out my living room in hot pink instead. I will also tell you – together with Ingrid Robers – what a incredible ride it is has been going from blog to book. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. And by the end of our gripping saga, you’ll want to buy Interiorator VOLUME so bad it’s not even funny anymore. As Liberace once said, this story has everything but a fire at the orphanage – so don’t miss out.
Four days filled to the brim with the ultimate in interior design inspiration – and an exclusive presentation by yours truly. That is Salon Residence at the Singer Laren. You can discover the full program, read all about the designers and buy your tickets at Salonresidence.nl! Will I see you there?
