The inspiring home and studio of Maaike Koster

I'm so excited to share the beautiful home and studio of Dutch graphic designer & interior designer Maaike Koster in Haarlem, The Netherlands today. Maaike has an inexhaustable passion for transforming ideas into inspiring concepts, beautiful designs and sophisticated spaces. And fortunately for us she frequently shares her family home, where she references much of her artwork (sold through 'My Deer Art shop') -on instagram (if you don't follow her, you definitely should!). Maaike's home is teeming with vintage pieces, the odd design classic, fabulous art and an abundance of greenery with an overall look which truly reflects her signature style - 'uncomplicated simplicity with a feminine touch'. Enjoy!

What a charming home, don't you think?

Did you recognise it? I once featured Maaike's home here in 2013 - although I must say, it's gone through a pretty big transformation since then!

Get the look: All art from My Deer Art Shop. Sitting room - Eames lounge chair & ottoman, beni ourain rug, macrame plant holders and wall hanging. This antique apothocary chest is wonderful! Eames DCW chair. Children's room - source lovely vintage childrens desk and chair sets here. Studio - black work lamp, eames house bird.

And if you feel like getting a little creative after seeing Maaike's home, why not give one (or all) of these DIY projects a whirl:

Abstract modern art.

An easy leather strap shelf.

A wooden X shaped magazine holder.

The Icelandic Birch Cocktail- (this counts as DIY, right?). 

Have a lovely day! 


  1. Thanks for instagram tip :-) and I agree - the living is simple with a feminine touch (and lots of plants), btw. I bought eucalyptus gunni yesterday and I´m curious how it´ll grow :-)

  2. Thanks for the wonderful post.
    The combo of plants to the interior made an outstanding work.

  3. Beautiful home and I love all the plants. However, I just don't get the vulgar word art. Why would you want to risk offending young children or older people who visit your home?

  4. Love the ocean themed art work and the flock of birds taking flight- will certainly be adding fun to my home with these great images. Stunning home tour also, thanks for sharing.
