Blogger Interior & Styling
We renovate our farmhouse. Here I post a photo about it on Instagram. All pictures are of our own home.
We do the renovation everything ourselves, many DIY projects such as the kitchen, table, doors etc.
I also have a website www.jellinadetmar.nl which I BLOG.Also entirely about our renovation and how an old monumental farm is being rebuilt into a fully renovated modern farm.
Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or theservices you offer?
We renovate our house all by ourselves. The styling and decoration and renovation do my husband and me together and you can find on my Instagram and Website.
Everything is to inspire other people. My blog is like a diary for me.
What are your passion and ambition in life? How did you start as a Interior Architect /Home Decorator?
I have been doing this with my husband for a long time.
For this farm, we have another old house completely rebuilt and now we
have taken on a new challenge.
How do you prioritize work, social life, friends and family?
Instagram and my blog is a hobby, in my daily life I am a physiotherapist.
We have two children Melin is 2 years old and Déjan is 5 years old, my the family is the most important one in my life.
So I do all this in my spare time because I really like everything that has to do with interior design, really a passion.
Give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully
Convince someone that they see things your way at work.I started my Instagram account in August 2016. I like it that people recognize my account by my own style.
I love plants the urban jungle look, industrial, steel and tough elements in our house. Warm dark shades occur but also use light white shades.
Old materials we reuse again, and we make many things in our house itself. We also love the flea market or recycled items, second-hand items.
Please tell us about your proud professional performance as a Interior architect/home decorator?
Our house has been on Dutch television. We have been in the newspapers and in-home magazines in the Netherlands and abroad I am very proud of this!
And my Instagram I have 138.000 followers who all see my house and renovation, I feel so blessed that they follow me. It is really a great honor that they want to watch, and that every time and the day they give a like and reaction, very special.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful if an interior architect/house architect?
Do especially what you like yourself. Choose your own style that makes you feel comfortable with.You can get inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest but you can give it your own twist. Turn your home into a home.
