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.
