ABOUT

Connecting with readers from all over the world, Vosgesparis is best known for its monochrome and minimalistic, yet stylish view on design. An awarded* interior design and lifestyle blog, where soft minimalism meets industrial and black. 

Desiree, founded the blog in 2007 as one of the first 'interior bloggers' in the Netherlands and gives Vosgesparis a personal twist by not just covering news from the design world, but by also bringing her own styling ideas to the table, showing us her own home, personal style, projects, travel-stories and ideas on decorating with minimal colour and maximum style

w/ Style
About two years ago I teamed up with a friend and became co-owner of w/ Style next to the blog. w/ Style is a unique collaboration between two creative minds, vosgesparis and BeeldSTEIL. We focus on visual concepts, photography and styling concerning interior design, brand experience, look books, editorials and cross media campaigns. We love to travel and for our Travel w/ Style series we cover a curated selection of hotels, places and travel products we love.
Both of us actively maintain our individual brands and blogs but we aim to collaborate as much as possible, expanding the online coverage and impact, with three websites, two blogs and multiple social media channels. Every one has an unique story to tell and we would love to collaborate with you on yours!

my work at international fairs
As a media journalist I work with different fairs all over Europe, both on my own or with a team of design bloggers. On behalf of IMM 2017 I designed my own trend stand, my favourite project of all time, showcasing a curation of different brands bringing the 'vosgesparis' style alive. I have been working with them over the last years and will be back at imm in January 2020, and also working on Domotex 2020 and Beurs Eigen Huis. Find a list of my work at the trade fairs here.

One of the most asked questions is what the name of my blog means....  'vosgesparis' was the nickname I used on Picasa (the precursor of Pinterest) and a discussion forum about interiors I was active on before the existence of social media like Facebook and Instagram or Pinterest and before discovering the world of blogging. I thought many times of changing it into a name that makes more sense or people could pronounce but never did as it is part of the story of vosgesparis  ;)  

Thanks so much for all the support and still reading blogs, Desiree
