About me


So happy that you have found my website!

 

On Lifestyle2go.com I share through weekly blogs, all my personal findings in the field of Lifestyle, which are life-enriching.

 

For years people have been picking my brains for tips on travel, fashion, interior, recipes, beauty, events and much more.

 

My creativity is partly due to the many worldwide travels I've made and the different countries and places where I have lived as a child with my parents, alone and with my family.

 

My work as an interior designer is something I have inherited from home. My mother was always busy with decorating and changing our interior. Subconsciously, I took the habit on as a child and made sure my room was always contemporary with a personal warm touch.

 

Since then I have assisted many projects, or with complete renovations, or with the intervention of the whole device with my company: MOS interiors.

 

As an interior specialist and editor of a lifestyle magazine, all wonderful places in the world that I have visited as well as the many people I meet on my path, have inspired me in my sense of color, space and insights into trends.

 

I am also very privileged to be allowed to live in an inspiring piece of world heritage: our own capital 'Amsterdam'. 

 

Let me and my guest bloggers take you to the beautiful things in life and especially do not hesitate to provide us with your comments at the bottom of each blog-posts or on the Facebook page of Lifestyle2go.

 

Enjoy reading and viewing with pleasure!

Max Maastricht
Posted on: 26 october 2012 Posted by: Kitty

Whenever I'm in Maastricht I tend to pay a visit - preferably ASAP :) - to the marvellous Max store. Located in the city's cosiest neighbourhood, the 'Quartier Latin', it offers a great collection in a stylishly decorated environment. Featured brands include Tara Jarmon, Hale Bob, Moncler and Antik Batik.

Maastricht/ Philippe Kersten
Posted on: 26 october 2012 Posted by: Kitty

In Maastricht I fell head over heels in love with the Oriental antique sculptures and earthenware objects in Philippe Kersten's gallery. Having spotted Philippe before at Tefaf, I was again awestruck by the decorative allure of the objects on display in his gallery.   Philippe Kersten Cortenstraat ...

Dining out at Dorset in Borne
Posted on: 26 october 2012 Posted by: Madelon

After a divine dinner with our family at my partners and her husbands restaurant in the east of holland, Dorset, we of course had to be captured for a fashion moment. That called for a lot of responses on our Facebook page, where a lot of people asked us about what we were wearing that evening. So ...

South of France/ Cannes
Posted on: 19 october 2012 Posted by: Kitty

Tara Jarmon, a lasting hit if you're into sexy, comfortable and stylish is French fashion label Tara Jarmon. As French as French gets, this is truly something for the Jackie K's and Audrey Hepburns among us. The brand prefers to show its collections in an ambiance of pastels en powder hues. This ...

South of France/ Cannes
Posted on: 19 october 2012 Posted by: Kitty

When it comes to shopping for clothes in Cannes, one of our firm and all-time favorites is the store run by the French brand Maje. The people behind Maje create delightful fashion; elegantly cut, classic, yet with a very contemporary touch of flair. Superb materials and colors. Basic with a feminine twist.

South of France/ Valbonne
Posted on: 19 october 2012 Posted by: Madelon

La Maison de Charrier, the original interior decoration store as only found in the Provence! Perfectly matches the romantic atmosphere of Valbonne. Lots of linen in ton sur ton aubergine, beige, and taupe. Antique furniture, brocante and authentic French crockery and china. But also awesome art objects and splendid chandeliers.

Long live Zara!! So we woke up and found ourselves wearing the same pants! We both love clothes, but no human being could do without a piece of Zara combined with an other label.  Fortunately you will find 2 Zara's in Cannes on the rue d'Antibes.   Kitty

South of France/ Cannes

This shop has very distinct clothing, many Scandinavian brands, but also other delightful labels. The owner and his wife are both Scandinavian and very friendly and good sales persons. You hardly ever leave the shop empty handed. Their brands include: Hotel Particulier, Pierre Balmain, Rika, Noir, Golden Goose and a lot more.

South of France/ Cannes

These boots are made for walking. A walhalla among the movie stars who visit Cannes during the film festival. Once in a while they close the shop for a celebrity like Eva longoria, who then has a very personal and private shopping spree.  The shop owner, who at the time had to flee from Persia ...

Cosy cupboard
Posted on: 12 october 2012 Posted by: Madelon

With little effort and very low recourses, you are able to create a cosy and handy cupboard. Like this one made of stacked wooden crates. Most certainly cleans up loads of mess still lying around the house!

Sculptures from Mongolia
Posted on: 05 october 2012 Posted by: Kitty

Natural materials are just what it takes to envelop your home in a warm and authentic atmosphere. These two little old sculptures from Mongolia never grow tiresome, especially when put in different spots from time to time. A wide variety of similar interior objects can be found at DK Home.

Animal excesses
Posted on: 05 october 2012 Posted by: Madelon

If I decorate my own house, you will always find pieces around of all our faraway travels. And I just love animal excesses, furniture wise. You will see that in our huge zebra couch from Baxter and our cooker hood/ also lamp, which is covered with zebra stripes. If I would have space for this funcky ...
