hi there!

I’m Anne, a floral stylist and creative director, based in the Netherlands. I’m specialized in flower installations for photoshoots&events and natural/personal designs for weddings. I got a degree in styling and design (Artemis Amsterdam) but taught myself how to do flowers after a few years of hard work. My eye for detail and nature loving heart I got from my parents for free. I grew up in a home filled with plants, art, animals, books and music and grew up to create a similar home for myself, my husband and our cat Nalu. We renovated our 1968 fixer upper ourselves and are very happy to live near the forests and sand-dunes in Soest.

studio

I own Inspire Styling, a design & floral studio. The studio itself is based on the ground level of our home, surrounded by a big garden where I can cut my own flowers. Together with a team of freelancers I style & flower weddings and events. When it’s just me I work on flower styling for brand shoots and magazines, as well as floral installations. I also host seasonal workshops.

realness over perfection

With my work I make people see the beauty that is in the world around them. I especially love creating floral arrangements and flower clouds. I create ‘gardens’ and miniature forests on places they don’t naturally grow and make them look as natural as possible. My style is just that: natural. And a bit whimsical. And always a reflection of real life. I embrace imperfections in stead of covering them up. Because these days, we want real stories in stead of perfect ones.

want to work with me?

Whether you need a big window display for a store opening, flower styling for a photoshoot, a design for an intimate gathering or wip up a floating floral installation, I’m your woman! I also give creative training and mentorships on request.  Click “contact” in the menu above to get in touch and maybe we will meet up for coffee soon!
