I’m Nina van de Goor, I’m 27 years old and I live in the Netherlands in an ever-changing and expanding house filled with my favorite vintage finds, nice design pieces and handmade stuff, which sometimes drives my boyfriend, who happens to also live there, slightly crazy. Color, shapes, beauty and creativity in all their appearances are the things that make me happy and that never stop inspiring me. I’m in a constant struggle to balance my creative work and this “other side of me,” which is graduating from university in social sciences. This year I really need to finish my thesis, which is kind of difficult when you have so many creative ideas and a pretty successful small business that you love working on as well.
I used to say that I started creating things as some sort of counterbalance to the rational, theoretical stuff at university, but more and more I start to realize that this love of color, pattern and shape and the desire to create the things I have in mind have always been a part of me.
