Hi there! I’m Jolien. I’m founder of the kinderkamerstylist.nl. My site is my work and my passion :-)
At my site you'll find inspiration for decorating nurseries and children's rooms and a selection of the most lovely shops.
We live in Groningen, the most northern city of the Netherlands. I live with my 2 daughters Jula (8) and Olivia (6) and my husband Roeland and hamster Lola. We've been living for one year in our new home near the park Noorderplantsoen, where every summer the festival Noorderzon is hosted.
I must pick one item? Let’s think…. okay our vintage blue doors. We bought them at an antique shop. They had found the doors in France in a factory. We build two big closets from plywood around these unique doors. One closet in our bedroom and the other closet in our daughter's room.
Always use colours with a (little bit) of grey in them.
When you like to use a lot of colours (like we do) don’t be afraid of non matching combinations.
And be aware of shopping to many trendy products. Ask yourself if it’s really a good match in your own house.
Yes! At the end of this week we'll be skiing in the Alps.
We are going on a winter holiday with some friends and our girls.
Hopefully a week full of sun, joy, happiness and lovely moments.
That I could play our piano!
Live the life you love and be as positive as you can be.
You’re strong and you’re unique. Believe in yourself and your dreams!
And then,.... everything is going to be alright.
I don’t have one. I love to listen to music, but which music depends on my mood.
We often listen to FIP, a radio-station from Paris.
I get inspired by many people, not anyone in particular.
Powder pink, old pink, grey-pink, pale pink….
My least favourable colour…. Purple..
Meet friends in the city, a walk in the forest, watching Netflix with my husband
I wish I could snap my fingers and make the kids fall asleep :)
Dogs. But not owning one. Well, not yet. If i can resist my daughter's wish. She really, really wants to have a cat or a dog….
I love the mentality of the Groningers. They are pure, calm & friendly. I love our city, which sometimes feels more like a big village.
To skate, walk or bike into the city. Going to the movie, museum, or just skating around.
Ooooh, I have collected about 100 favourite shops at my site. Please take a look at this selection of shops which all have unique kids products.
