Q: Hi Mariët, we absolutely fell in love with your outdoors space! Would you mind telling us how you started the makeover of this space- did you have a clear vision or did it evolve along the process?
A: I started to paint all the wood inside in white. After 3 times it finally was white and the styling could begin…
Q: Did you make big changes or was it mostly about styling the space?
A: The painting was a huge makeover by itself. The styling came after that. I'm in love with bamboo and I thought it would be nice to get bamboo furniture which I could style with different textiles. An eye catcher I think!
Q: What’s your favourite thing about this space?
A: I love to change the decoration on the wooden walls. It's easy to do. I can play around with colours because of the neutral base. It's the perfect spot for a warm summer evening. With some wine and candles it is really cozy!
Q: Do you go about designing an outdoors space the same way you design an indoors space or is it different for you?
A: I think the outside must be an extension of the inside.. So it matches. The white base, the shades of pink.. You can see it inside but also outside.
Q: What tips would you give someone who wants to upgrade their outdoors space?
A: Try to think low budget. You can often give something a completely new life with some paint, instead of buying new.
