Welcome, Irene of Bloesem!

Hi All – my name is Irene Hoofs and I will be guestblogging on Design*Sponge this week. I am really excited about it and hope you enjoy my posts. Many thanks to Grace for inviting me! I have been a big fan of Design*Sponge for years and inspired me to launch my own blog Bloesem.

On Bloesem I write about interior design and anything else that catches my interest that has to do with design. I also do freelance graphic design work and write a design column for a Dutch lifestyle magazine… one of my biggest hobbies is knitting… Originally I am from Amsterdam but currently live with my husband and son in Kuala Lumpur, a wonderful green and exotic place. We recently moved into our new apartment and as I am sure you know decorating and styling a new place is great fun but can also give you headaches…. especially if a room just doesn’t look or feel right… so for this week I thought it would be a good idea to do a number of interviews with interior stylists that I admire and see where they find their inspiration, talk about their lives and interests… and of course… they will give us some tips and tools to create a beautiful home.
