ABOUT DESIREE

vosgesparis reflects my love for minimalism, objects and sculptural design, ceramics and beautiful spaces. I strongly believe that you should only surround yourself with the things you really love, and things that 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. With small children at home I eventually started working as a social worker. My work involves bringing together families and their young children of all cultures, ages and social backgrounds in Amsterdam. I still work here part-time, and I enjoy seeing this other side of life, next to working on the blog and collaborating with different brands.

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.


  • I am always open to new ideas and opportunities and look forward to hearing from you! Email me at info@vosgesparis.com

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. 

Just back from a few days in Paris, I had to choose a nickname and google adres to join Picasa and after many names, that were all taken, I made a combination of Paris and Place des Vosges a square in Paris that I really loved. I thought many times of changing it into a name that would make more sense or people could pronounce but never did as it is part of the story of the blog  ;) Thanks so much for all your support, Desiree
