Yvonne Bakker Styling

October 7, 2009

The more I read portfolios, the more amazing people I’m discovering today. I’ve spent so much time this afternoon reading – it’s exciting to find so many wonderfully talented people out there and here in Europe there are tons that I am just learning about. Though I love receive submissions via email, I make sure I don’t only post what is being sent to me, rather I’m blogging about things I’m doing the legwork to find on my own because there are so many artists and designers who are shy and do not write to me (or any blog or magazine) so if I didn’t do all of this digging I may not come upon them otherwise. Like for instance, interior and food stylist Yvonne Bakker.

I’d not heard of Yvonne before as her work has been in magazines that I don’t regularly read (though now that I’m in Germany I want to subscribe to VT Wonen for sure!) but I’m so glad her name popped up because I’d like to talk about her for just a moment if you don’t mind. :) She lives in the Netherlands and has been working as a stylist for quite some time now, her portfolio includes VT Wonen, Eigen Huis & Interieur, Elle Wonen, At Home and more. Because of her diverse clients, her work spans a rather broad range of styles from classic interiors to country, modern and eclectic.

Don’t you want to run home and redecorate your entire flat now? It’s so motivating to see beautiful spaces that are full of creative ideas, isn’t it? And we owe it to stylists like Yvonne for giving us their inspiring, artistic impressions and bringing all of these creative ways of enhancing a space to us through the pages of some of our favorite magazines.

    We are in the process of buying a small bungalow – our retirement home, the date for it to complete is on Monday.

    We are having some structural work done and then our intention is to paint it all white and live in it until we get more of an idea of what we really want.

    Your blog and those you feature have been a real inspiration as to what we can do.

    Thank you

    I could move right into this house, VERY easily. I love it.

    The only thing is, my husband wouldn’t come with me. :P

    Food styling is so magical. Unfortunately, every time I make something, I hold it up to the beautiful photos I’ve seen and it always falls a bit flat;-)

    oh well, at least I have images like this to keep me content!

    Yvonne Bakker does some beautiful work. I was trying to find documentation of her work since I saw that she designed the interior of a house I stayed in as a guest (long ago) in NL. In fact, the photo of the woman’s hands with gloriously large rings is the owner of the house — a stained glass artist in Venlo. She was a textile artist when I knew her. Beautiful work also!
