Roomboard: Isabella’s “Blissful Blush”

Featuring the soft pinks and yellows of BBP Artist Isabella’s gorgeous Amsterdam houses,  “Blissful Blush” brings a peaceful and feminine twist to a little girl’s nursery.  The hushed watercolors stand out among the golden lamps, curtains and bedding and with a stylish pop of navy blue, the Child Craft crib brings everything together.

BBP: If you use a name for your studio/shop other than your name, what is it and how did it come about?
IsaBella; my studio started at the same my little daughter Isa was born. IsaBella for me stands for powerful yet sweet. IsaBella sparkles, just like my artwork.

 

BBP: What do you find inspires you most?
The books from my childhood. I had some old fairy tale books, beautifully illustrated by great Dutch artists! These illustrations lead me to other worlds, awesome!

 

BBP: What do like most about collaborating with BoomBoom Prints? What are your thoughts on the idea of customizable artwork?
I do like the fact that BoomBoom Prints brings artist and families together. This is a perfect way of making unique artwork approachable for anyone!

 

BBP: Do you have kids?BoomBoom Prints Featured Artist Blog: Isabella by Margariet I’ve got two kids, Matteo(6) and Isa (1).  Two completely different personalities, but both an eye for detail, guess they’ve got that from me;) What I like the most about being a parent is that every day is full of new discoveries, new statements and new developments!

 

BBP: What was the biggest change you saw in your life when you became a parent?
The biggest change of becoming a parent was the big responsibility. I had to find myself again in this new position. Yes, I am a mom now, but still an independent woman!

 

BBP: What did your room look like while you were growing up?
My room in my childhood was sober.  My parents didn’t have the money to decorate a lot. So maybe that was a perfect breeding ground for me to fantasize!

 

BBP: Who is your favorite artist and why?

Anton Pieck. He’s a Dutch artist who lived and worked in the last century. His work has a fairy tale-like character. Pieck was responsible for designing almost everything for fairy tale park Efteling in The Netherlands, now one of the major theme parks in Europe. I could live in his work!
