Thank you Annemique!

Annemique and I met a couple of years back when Annemique was Editor in Chief for a Dutch magazine called Hide&Chic. She invited me to become the editor for their design/living section and of course I happily accepted this invitation… for a little over a year I contributed to the magazine and than we both went our separate ways. Recently Annemique told me about the new path she had taken in her life… she no longer worked in the media business but became a professional feng shui consultant advising people and offices about feng shui and interior design. On her blog you can read more about her love for feng shui and she shows us glimpses of her wonderful home.

Annemique : ‘What appeals to me in feng shui is that it allows you to look at your home with new eyes: what environment have you created for yourself? If your home is a mirror, what does it say about you? By clearing clutter, applying certain colors and materials and replacing furniture, you can make a house into a home where the energy flows harmoniously.’

    Goodness, I am suffering from a serious case of home envy! What a gorgeous place – I’m not surprised Annemique dedicates herself to Feng Shui – her home oozes calm…

    WOOOW, amazing! That window is just so stunning, along with the interior design 🙂

    Gorgeous interior 🙂 I mostly love the big sunny windows which are totally changing the inside view of the whole space.

    I’m just very curious, what kind of building is this? (Because of the arches and big windows)
