Perfect Petunias

Dear Reader, Do you also sometimes feel guilty for spending too much time and, perhaps, too much money as well on decorating your home? We’ve felt that way plenty of times. But now we’ve decided that this is our hobby. A hobby takes time and costs money! It’s the same with all other hobbies – and this is even one that others can enjoy, too. When you have this passion, you can sit for hours, browsing the internet and reading books and magazines. Drive for days or weeks – if only we could – visiting markets and stores. Not necessarily because there’s anything we need – there rarely is, but just because it’s fun. Other times, we’re on the hunt for a specific item or that perfect piece of furniture that just seems to be “missing.” When you’ve spent a lot of time and have FINALLY found it, the joy is almost indescribable! Or if we suddenly come across something that we didn’t even know existed but that’s just right! We just love the process and truly enjoy surrounding ourselves with beautiful things that create a nice atmosphere. A new arrangement can bring joy for a long time every time you walk by it. Naturally, we move things around quite a bit around here. That’s a given with all the pictures that we take. But still, it just makes us HAPPY! – whether it’s here at the office or in each of our private homes. A small bouquet or just a single stem in the bathroom or the office – probably something that many people wouldn’t even notice. Other times, it’s just an indescribable urge to move things around that comes over us. The joy is just as great. There’s nothing like change – that’s a fact. We hope this magazine will give you lots of inspiration for this, whether it’s in your home or in your garden. Happy reading!

Little House


The Little House

You arrive at Marijke Kingma’s little house by way of a hidden path. Imagine yourself in a whole other world - almost as if in a fairytale. A secret idyll of intricate nooks creates a sanctuary of green. The house is located in the strikingly beautiful area around the town of Bergen in Holland. The ocean is just 3 miles away and the woods are practically in the backyard. Ten years ago, Marijke’s dream came true. Together with her dog and her cat, she moved into the small house by the ocean with the extraordinary garden. She has always been fascinated with the ocean. As a child, she would spend vacations by the ocean and loved the rich nature of the coast. The extensive 

beaches that are forever changing, the ocean sounds and amazing smells inspire her, giving her inner peace and making her happy. Marijke is a real outdoor-woman. She designed the garden herself, and each plant has been carefully selected and planted by her. Over the past ten years, her garden has transformed into a romantic oasis filled with apple and plum trees, berry shrubs, flowers and herbs, which are frequently used in the cooking. Gardening and cooking are her favorite pastimes. She happily makes apple
