"I'm a Dutch graphic designer who lives in an abandoned factory just outside of Paris. With my husband I renovated this industrial space into a comfortable home and workspace. Our home has been featured on Design*Sponge and in IKEA Family Live Magazine. Since 2006 I write a lifestyle blog called JOELIX.com
where I share anything from cool new design shops in Paris, our home renovation, beautiful typography I discover on my travels and lots of plants & green hotspots around the world. Together with Igor Josifovic (Happy Interior Blog
), I founded Urban Jungle Bloggers
, an online community that aims to bring more plants into homes & blogs.
Urban Jungle Bloggers is all about living with plants - in your home, in other interiors, in public spaces. We want to highlight the beauty and benefits of houseplants and other greeneries in urban spaces. It is also about community: a green community that is growing and thriving on the internet and beyond. As a green family of Urban Jungle Bloggers we share our take on living with houseplants and making our lives greener."
