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


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.

Some fibre businesses have been around for generations. And sometimes, a brave soul starts a new fibre business for the next generations. We were lucky to meet the wonderful, warm and inspiring Luciana Etchechoury, who very recently started her own fibre business. Luciana, a passionate Argentinian fibre artist, thought long and hard but then jumped at the chance to promote the beautiful Argentinian and Peruvian yarn and preserve their heritage with her new business she called Max + Herb.
