As soon as you enter Rio’s apartment, the main thing you see is a clever mix of colours, materials and styles. "I just mix together everything I like without depending on any particular style," says Rio. Her interior style is a formula that incorporates multiple colours, a combination of wood and wickerwork, accessories and animals, and not to mention a lot of plants! "I love plants, and I have at least 25 house plants in terracotta pots." The definite eye-catchers in her interior are the designer objects. “Mosi's chair from SlideArt is a favourite, but his toys are also beautifully designed. He has multiple Wobbels, for example. These pieces seamlessly match the interior."

Rio looks a lot like her mother when it comes to a love for interior styling. “When I was a child, she often took me to the furniture malls or design stores like Hulshoff. I totally loved it! I used to drift away on designer chairs and created dreamy designs for my own furniture on a sketch pad,” says Rio. Once she got her own place in The Hague, she was able to live out her dreams. There’s a good reason why Mosi's room is her favourite spot. “This room has received the most attention, and it’s spot on. It all came together from scratch. That's what makes it so great”. The dining and living room are also favourites. The high ceiling creates a calming atmosphere, even when there’s an explosion of toys on the floor. And as a finishing touch, there are gym rings hanging between the rooms. “This makes it fun at home every day. It's designed with both of us in mind.”

Bring the sunshine into your home

The IXXI 'Sunflowers' by famous painter Vincent Van Gogh lights up the house. The large wall behind the dining table is filled with these yellow favourites. “The IXXI is gigantic and brings so much sunshine into the room, even in the winter.” In addition to the beautiful artwork, Rio also has an enlargement of Mosi on holiday in Tenerife on the wall. Rio adds; "Mosi is shining from the inside out, the surroundings are beautiful and the wall colour makes it seem as if he’s standing just outside the window." All you need to do is add some hanging plants and it looks like you're on holiday again! “Obviously, I chose this photo full of palm leaves for a good reason. It blends in great with our jungle house”.
