X and L interior artists



Last week I already shared some pics of our friends’ studio home in Amsterdam. Just a couple more today to give you an even better impression of how incredibly stylish XandL actually are. Ever since they started designing interiors they stayed true to their inner voices. 

No easy or quick trends have ever affected their work and still their work is very modern and new – but above all genuinely timeless…  This for me makes them so unique and special. You do see very subtle changes in their creations and ideas – but it’s always in the details, the craftmanship and the materials they chose…







In true XandL style, they prefer their privacy and shy away from too much publicity…or any publicity at all…! Although you see their work occasionally featured in the well-known magazines they almost always only allow this “under protest”…These pictures were not taken with a hidden camera of course but after I pleaded with Xander for some time to let me shoot some images to practice my skills…:) he eventually kindly agreed as long as I did not shoot any images of him…they are too modest! While I hadn’t seen Xander in many years it didn’t feel like this at all which is great when you meet old friends again…seeing Xander brought back fond memories of when I started out as a (then still young…) freelance graphic designer in Amsterdam – XandL were an inspiration to me then and I am sure they will continue to be…
