I am Linda, a Dutchie currently based in Dubai, a mom of two very Dutch boys: Sam (3) and Jack (4) and the founder of Live Loud Girl.
I ended up here after leaving my hometown with my family to live in New York City. A place that inspired me so much that I just had to follow my passion and start my own business.
The concept Live Loud Girl started with just a notebook and a name... My first blog post was here in Dubai at the beginning of 2014 when I started to share my interior inspiration. And that somehow evolved into interior styling where I can make my ideas become reality.
With styling, I love to start with a good base, literally a white canvas if possible. White makes me calm. I will add monochrome but don't shy away from bold colors. I love simplicity but embrace statement pieces. Scandinavia meets Manhattan with a touch of my Dutch roots you could call it. Combining old with new, vintage with IKEA making interior styling accessible and affordable, creating an atmosphere with attitude.
Having a natural aspiration for beautifully designed homes, in my projects I always tend to shake things up by adding some bold - Loud - elements to create a more livable and easy going style.
I love to convert spaces into homes with a definite dose of funky vibes and originality where children have room to play and adults would love to join them.
Please let me give you a guided tour through Sam's room and some of my interior decorating essentials to hopefully inspire you.
I like: painted walls, wall paper and wall stickers.
I love: grids, triangles, stripes and dots, especially in black and white
I need: storage! Decluttering is essential so I have a dozen storage possibilities for the kids rooms (and for myself).
I am not afraid of: change. Small changes can make a big difference.
