as i’ve been in a netherlands kind of mood this week, let’s keep it that way, shall we? after two posts about the places i visited last weekend on my business trip to the netherlands, here is a lady who owns a business there, but comes from this sunny country on the left corner of europe! that lady is sonia van der zwaan barrigas, which probably some of you know already by her amazing taste in interior decoration and of course, her online shop – gosto design!
“gosto design & lifestyle is an inspirational (web)shop located in the netherlands specialized in design and unique products with a north european twist. the word gosto comes from the portugese, a nod to my origin meaning style or taste, but also can be interpreted as a verb inflection for i love.
our offer reflects a carefully selection of products where not only high-end design is represented but also design of upcoming talents. products with a story, known who’s behind it, that contributes to a sustainable development and are produced in a fair manner for environment and people.”
sonia represents several well-known designers, illustrators and brands and you can find her online shop filled with beautiful home accessories that represent either the scandinavian style and the latest interior design trends. to be honest with you, it’s very hard for me to pick some favourites, because i simply can’t choose. there are way too many goodies on this online place! lamps, pillows, posters, boxes, candle holders… and you are free to go for a minimalist black and white, white and wood, black and wood or go crazy with beautiful colours!
sonia’s home has been featured in several places, as her incredible taste in decorating has been collecting fans all over the world. her home with a scandinavian style looks above all things really comfortable, elegant, but relaxed and warm. and who doesn’t want to feel that way at home? the thing is that this is hard to get, you need to have that particular eye for things! take a sneak-peek into her home here and delight yourself!
regarding the brands she represents, it’s funny and interesting that you can find either snug as well as donna wilson’s work, and both have been guests here on the blog! so if you are in the mood for some new things for your home (let’s forget about christmas gifts, as i think that it might be a bit too late for online orders right now) this is the place for you! i hope you enjoy this suggestion!
