This time, we’re spotlighting Doortje, a 25-year-old interior stylist from Amsterdam. Her daily Instagram posts (@thuisbijdoor) feature practical interior tips and inspiration you can use in your own interior. Every day, from her apartment in Amsterdam’s de Pijp neighbourhood, where Doortje has lived for three and a half years, she posts fantastic interior ideas and comes up with new plans for sharing even more inspiration with the world. Because that’s her goal: to show that anyone can create a wonderful, stylish home without investing a lot of time or money.
In 1875 Anna Eijffinger and her husband Theo opened a wallpaper store across the street from the Royal Palace Noordeinde in The Hague. It was a time with an increasing interest in interior decorating, especially amongst wealthy people. Anna possessed a strong business instinct and worked behind the scenes directing the firm. At the time, it was extremely unusual to find a woman conducting a business. This sign of women’s liberation formed the basis of the eccentric and innovating vision that characterised the brand Eijffinger from the very start.
