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!

Biker boots
Posted on: 28 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

We love all those biker boots this winter! Especially for all young girls, you can find them with studs, stones and stars. But for 40+ agers it is probably not what you are looking for. A sturdy and simple pair, and with a higher heel( what a feast) are the ones from Freelance. And on top of it you can get them in our favorite color green.

Carpets are back
Posted on: 28 september 2012 Posted by: Kitty

Carpets are back. They come in all sorts and sizes. Just what we need on a cold and rainy autumn day or in the bleak winter that awaits us… Put that fireplace to work and drape yourself elegantly in front of it! On top of all that, a carpet brings coziness into your house and makes your interior complete.

Valentino’s

These Valentino’s are elegant and all 2012.    

Dsquared sunglasses
Posted on: 28 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

The sunglasses of Dsquared are a tremendous hit in Italy. My bff Janneke, my eldest daughter Pomeline and I decided that we couldn't do without one of those. We were lucky to get one at the market of Valbonne( every friday morning), France. but luckily you can also buy them online.

A gorgeous bouquet
Posted on: 24 september 2012 Posted by: Kitty

One single flower or a gorgeous bouquet can put you in the mood to savour the moment you're in. I enjoy this type of flower power every day, whether it be a nice specimen in my garden or flowers growing wild in nature. This particular bouquet was photographed in our restaurant, Dorset (). Even though ...

Woolrich parkas
Posted on: 19 september 2012 Posted by: Kitty

We are both very sensitive to the cold and - especially now that the chill of autumn is almost upon us - like to be well prepared... Woolrich parkas, besides being trendy, are luxuriously warm and comfortable. What a great thing that they come in so many happy colours!  

Autumn colors
Posted on: 18 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

This week we where invited to the autumn event of Suzanne Loggere in 's-Graveland, where she showed the new collections of inter alia fabrics of Armani, furniture of Interna and wallpaper of Elitis. Suzanne has the largest wholesale company of the most beautiful fabric brands, with the most amazing showroom.

Fashionshow Jos Raak
Posted on: 14 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

Last monday Kitty and I attended the ever so popular fashion show of Jos Raak in Amsterdam.
Although we adore tropical hideaways with associated climate, we get so much more inspired by winter fashion. All those amazing fabrics and the combination of them, boots, (fake)fur coats and especially ...

Sequel fashionshow Jos Raak
Posted on: 14 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

At the end of the show we were honored to stand aside the great master and loving friend, Jos Raak himself. (photo on top). So much respect for what he achieved. Everyone buys at his store. All those amazing fabrics and the combination of them, boots, (fake)fur coats and especially the fact that you are able to hide all your love handles and sagging skin underneath those delicious layers.

New clutch from Burberry!!
Posted on: 06 september 2012 Posted by: Kitty

Love this new clutch from Burberry!!

Natural materials
Posted on: 06 september 2012 Posted by: Kitty

Natural materials give each interior its very own atmosphere. Dark wood goes perfectly with warm hues and animal prints. By adding plaids and pillows you create a pleasantly rural atmosphere with just a touch of nonchalance. This is a place that's fit for living.

A green tiger print desk
Posted on: 06 september 2012 Posted by: Kitty

I really adore this tiger print. It makes for a surprising combo with that elegant little green desk. The nicely unorganized photo collage makes for a characteristic touch. Very important ? fresh flowers. No interior should be without them.

A white interior
Posted on: 06 september 2012 Posted by: Kitty

A white interior is the epitome of feminine elegance. However, there's always a risk of it turning out too cold. I love warmth and cosiness, that's why this combination with natural materials pleases me. The way the light comes in here is magnificent, you just can't keep your eyes off.

This remarkable glass ellipse table is for sale at retail price. This table consists of 2 toughened glass, table top and bottom. The space between the top and bottom is 8 cm and can be used as a showcase. The upright lining is made of cherry-wood, with old -Egyptian wood carvings. The legs are also made out of cherry-wood.

Moroccan badroom
Posted on: 05 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

This bathroom I designed 9 years ago, around two old Moroccan washbasins that I had found somewhere earlier. It had to become a very girly bathroom with a Moroccan look. I wanted the traditional Tadelakt walls, a waterproof piece work which is polished with a sharpened stone to obtain the most beautiful texture in any color you like.

LOUBOUTIN fan?
Posted on: 05 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

To tell you the truth, I am not such a big Louboutin fan. There was a time that I owned a black pair, but did not know how fast to throw them in a secondhand sale after a party where i felt incredible pain underneath my feet after an hour already. And you must admit, it is a difficult story, walking the boulders of amsterdam with shoes like that.

Bookcase
Posted on: 04 september 2012 Posted by: Madelon

In our apartment in amsterdam I obtained a bookcase for many books, as well as a spot to exhibit some of our favorite (art)objects. Furthermore I had the wish that it had to be made out of thick wooden shelfs, for a tough look, the backside open so you could see the color of the wall through. And I dreamt of a real library ladder.
