A few years ago Suzanne and Rob decided to move away from the city to the Dutch countryside. They bought an old farmhouse in the Northern part of Limburg and transformed a part of the house into an attractive guesthouse called “De Cassehof”. When you step into the Cassehof you immediately feel at home. Suzanne has a good eye for style and color. The living room and kitchen are filled with modern rustic furniture, fresh flowers, dark grey tones and ochre accents. Everything in this guesthouse feels comfy and cozy.

Mediterranean paradise with a spectacular view over the Mont Ventoux and Vaucluse valley. Lovely garden with olive and figtrees, terraces and a swimming pool, set in a quiet neighbourhood near the village of Bedoin. The 2 charming gîtes and guestrooms are tastefully decorated with antique treasures and flea market finds. In the backyard there is a stunning conservatory with steel framed doors and windows. What a delightful and inspiring Provence hideaway. I visited this stunning place for the second time and I enjoyed every minute. The photoshoot was a great experience and the pictures came out fantastic.

A gorgeous outdoor living space in the South of France, located in the backyard of and old 18th century mansion. Beautifully styled in a Mediterranean atmosphere and with a great view over the garden and swimmingpool. The old patiowalls are painted in a warm terracotta color scheme, and the spacious outdoor area is filled with lounge benches and a 10 seat dining table. A great place for al fresco dining and wining with family and friends. No matter the weather, this is truly a perfect all seasons spot. I did the photoshoot on a hot octoberday and I felt a bit stressy about the deadline but everything went well.
COUNTRY HOTEL DENMARK
Published in magazine Wonen Landelijke Stijl 2020
Falsled Kro in Denmark is a beautiful countryside hotel located on the southcoast of the island Funen. The charming half timbered cottage buildings with tatched roofs are dating back to the 17th century when Falsled was an old smugglers inn. The property has been transformed into a luxury 5 star relais hotel with cozy rooms and suites all furnished in a rustic style. Falsted Kro is located close to the seashore and surrounded by manicured gardens with apple trees, boxwoods and roses. The tiny little harbor with sailing and fishingboats is just a few steps away, and the panoramic view over the Baltic sea is amazing. This is Denmark at it’s best. I really enjoyed photographing this lovely location.

In the heart of the Languedoc at the foot of the Cévennes you’ll find the classy and luxury Chambre d’Hôtes “Les Trois Comtes”. A hidden pearl with spacious suites, high ceilings, old doors and windowshutters. This beautiful accommodation is run by the Dutch couple Wybrich and Gerard who started a new adventure in France after their career as theatre directors. The 300 year old manor house was built by a rich silk merchant and renovated a few years ago. The luxury rooms are all furnished in a classy chic style with a touch of Paris grandeur. The entry hall is dominated by an impressive stairway and a beautiful cast iron balustrade. During my stay I was running up and down the stairs with my camera and tripod. I could not stop capturing the rooms and suites and the authentic outdoor veranda. Can’t wait to see the reportage in a magazine.
COUNTRY HOUSE SOUTH SWEDEN
Published in Ariadne at Home summer edition 2020
An old missionchurch in the South of Sweden. Built in 1926 and converted into a lovely familyhouse in 2008. Beautifully situated at the edge of the forest and close to a large lake. When I arrived in the early morning at the skyblue house I was a bit worried about the shootingconditions. Rainy weather and a cloudy sky. I started photographing in the livingroom and kitchen where I captured the awesome church windows and the Gustavian design with lots of whites and Swedish blue. After a few hours the sun came trough and I went outside for the garden pictures. I finished the photoshoot in the early evening and went for a short walk by the lake. I could’nt resist to make some extra pictures of the beautiful scenery.
SWEDISH BEACH HOUSE
Published in Flair magazine 2020
Colourfull fishing villages, thousands of islands and a rugged coastline. The Swedish West Coast is one of my favorite places in Scandinavia. Early June I packed my suitcase and camerabag for a phototrip to the beautiful Bohüslan region. While travelling around the islands of Tjorn and Orust I had the opportunity to do a phoshoot in a stunning beachhouse. A white wooden family house on the rocks with a fabulous view over the sea. I spent two days capturing the interior and outdoor scenes. What a marvellous shooting job!
ROMANTIC COTTAGE IN NORMANDY
Published in Ariadne at Home summer edition 2019
A romantic cottage in the Normandy countryside, nestled in the rolling hills and surrounded by apple trees, fields and woods. Whistling birds, lush green gardens, wild flowers and a woodswing in the old oak tree. I could’nt believe my eyes when I arrived at my shooting location. What a magical place! A half timbered Norman style cottage with old slate roof tiles and blue shutters. A stunning entrance covered with climbing roses and wisteria. Inside the cottage a cosy livingroom furnished and accessorized with French antique and vintage pieces. A huge fireplace and a dreamy bedroom decorated with a romantic crown canopy and soft blue toile de jouy fabric. This home looks as if it was taken out right of a fairy tale.
