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!

Let the sunshine in!
Posted on: 30 may 2013 Posted by: Madelon

This spring it takes a lot of make do. It is chilly and you do not want to wander around in a winter-look all the time. There is not much option but to combine. Little summer at the bottom and a remnant of winter on top. It requires a lot of creativity, but also in economic terms, that we should in this time.

Tanning on the beach, not in my garden!
Posted on: 27 may 2013 Posted by: Berine

A day like today proofs us that it, indeed, is spring, almost summer. Unfortunately enough, such days as these are rather unique here in The Netherlands and I just wasn’t patient enough to wait for it. So to get a bit of my tan on and to really make use of a long weekend, we, my mum, dad and I, decided to go to the South of France.

Les Jeans, c'est chic
Posted on: 27 may 2013 Posted by: Kitty

Was any fabric re-invented as often as jeans? I don’t think so. This summer lots of variations on beautiful blue denim – the fabric that flatters everybody - made their way to the runway. I suppose there isn’t a living soul without some kind of jeans in his or her closet. In her new ...

To have it in black and white
Posted on: 24 may 2013 Posted by: Madelon

De colour (or actually 'non' colour) black is has never left fashion. What does it say about a person if this person wears black a lot:
If you have a black colour personality you are a very independent thinker and have some unique and uncongenial thoughts, views and opinions. You are seen by others as somewhat a mysterious character that not many people can fathom.

Wall art
Posted on: 24 may 2013 Posted by: Madelon

How do you achieve an interior with a whole different look? By working with guts.
Don't follow the trends on interior to much. So many homes look alike because people choose what is 'in' at that time or go for the same interior designer. Dare to experiment. I love working with special paint technics or wall paintings.

Living in waste
Posted on: 17 may 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Once I had these closets made of waste wood. Friendly for our enviroment and nice to look at. They were mend for a boys room and so it come out handy that they had a sturdy look. The carpenters who made them at that time, where moving their wood factory to a new location and could use up all their rest(waste) wood.

4EVER WITH EVERYONE
Posted on: 17 may 2013 Posted by: Berine

Kae (19) is the creative brain behind this brand. At high school she often got asked by her friends to ‘just quickly make a bracelet’ for hem. So, with lots of love and fun she would work on it and gave them away as little presents. But last year she decided she could actually make money with her creations.

Nomads
Posted on: 14 may 2013 Posted by: Madelon

A lot of affinity I feel for Nomads and Gypsies. These itinerant people intrigue me. I fully understand their constant need and their unrest to move from place to place. My whole life I have experienced this feeling inside me. Wanting to discover new countries and places.  Never scared to move from one home to a next one.

Loo
Posted on: 08 may 2013 Posted by: Madelon

It is mostly an underexposed area when thinking off interior decorating. But we do spend a lot of time there. Some more than others. I think we should all try to make the most out of this mostly tiny space. Cosy it up or have it totally re-designed. After all the loo is partly your business card towards friends, family and sometimes even clients.

Abdication in Natan
Posted on: 08 may 2013 Posted by: Kitty

Dutch designer Jan Taminiau received well-deserved high praise for the stunning dresses he created for queen Máxima at the Royal Inauguration Day on April 30. I think it’s a great thing that the house of Natan was also part of the fashion scene that day. The first creation that Máxima ...

Coral red

You will see me a lot in this color red the coming months. I tend to feel very happy wearing this summery color and moreover it suits almost everyone. It will light up even the palest face.   Jacket: Pinko Tshirt: French Connection Pants: Zara Sneakers: Lemare Scarf: Marie ...

Manoush
Posted on: 06 may 2013 Posted by: Berine

A shop where I already come for years. Already as a small child, as if you’re Alice in Wonderland or walking through Sweetie Land. Upon entering, your eyes will be surprised by the most cheerful fluorescent colours. Everywhere you look you see pink dresses, yellow trousers, crazy tutus, green hats, matching bags and so much more.

Long live Jan Taminiau
Posted on: 01 may 2013 Posted by: Madelon

We are so proud of our Dutch designer! Maxima was again the 'Queen of the ball' in his two creations yesterday at the royal ceremony. When I was a little girl I secretly dreamed of being the next queen. Just for these beautiful dresses i would want to be in her shoes for a little while. But really ...
