Marlies grew up in the countryside in the small village Hauwert, close to the beautiful port towns of Hoorn and Enkhuizen. After her high school she attends a training for interior stylist in Amsterdam. “After having lived there 4 years we moved to Zwaag. When our dream home came for sale I decided, now along with my husband and 2 sons, to return to Hauwert.” After 10 years of being in a permanent job as an editor/living stylist it was the time for a new step in 2016; Marlies started to work freelance as an interior stylist. Right now she has an established customer base but also quite likes to create free work such as DIY- and Interior features.
