On your website, you stated that you are inspired by Scandinavian design. Why is that? Do you also look for inspiration elsewhere? What do you think needs to be done to keep one’s portfolio fresh?
I am not really sure why I love Scandinavian design so much. Probably it’s the special combination of minimalistic shapes, interesting colors and natural materials. I grew up with a lot of IKEA furniture and my mother’s yearly visits to a friend’s summer house in Sweden meant luggage full of fascinating tableware.
When I started following interior blogs a few years ago, I fell in love with many Scandinavian brands and their timeless designs. But it’s also the way of living in those countries which fascinates me. I traveled to some Scandinavian countries and the Netherlands several times and I always felt like home. I really like how the apartments and houses there are furnished: so bright and minimalistic, but they still appear so comfortable. The question where I find my inspiration is not that easy to answer. Travelling has always been a really important source of inspiration for me, but new creative ideas can be found everywhere, even in everyday situations. Sometimes I get a new idea for an abstract graphic while I am taking photos of flowers in the park, sometimes I find inspiration while reading one of my favorite interior magazines. Everything can be an inspiration.
