since in 2007

One of the first interior design bloggers in the Netherlands

One of the first interior design bloggers in the Netherlands, Desiree founded the blog in 2007 and gives Vosgesparis its personal twist, by not just covering design world news, but also bringing her own styling ideas to the table. Showing us her own home, personal style, styling projects, travel-stories and decorating ideas: with minimal colour and maximum style.

Today articles are posted a few times a week, reaching thousands of readers every month as well as an engaged community of followers on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and around 9 million monthly viewers on Pinterests where images link directly to the blog.

"create your own visual style.. let it be unique for yourself, yet identifiable to others."

about desiree

desiree, founder vosgesparis

Vosgesparis reflects my love for minimalism, ceramic, objects and sculptural design. I strongly believe that you should only surround yourself with the things you really love, and reflect your personality: something you will see in my home and on my blog. Although many think there is a team behind Vosgesparis, I have been running the blog and its social media by myself, ever since the early days.

Fascinated by interior design and creating stills, I attended a school for art direction, and studied display styling and advertising drawing. Apart from working within interior design, I am also a social worker, bringing together families and their young children of all cultures, ages and social backgrounds in Amsterdam.

To keep the blog running you will occasionally see sponsored content and collaborations on the blog. These articles are always written by me personally and selected to be a fit for my readers. Next to vosgesparis I also work as a stylist and co-owner of photography, concept and styling agency w/ Style.
