Not convinced yet you need a designer?

When working with a designer for the very first time, you probably have lots of questions and maybe some concerns. And I don’t blame you at all, it’s not something everyone considers.

A house that becomes your home ..

And when you don’t have the time or knowledge on how to style your house into a beautiful and unique home (and you always wished your home would be your happy and chill place that suits your personality and lifestyle), hiring someone to help doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.

Unique finds, furniture & some more

What we do best? Finding those treasures, you can’t find anywhere else. Vintage pieces, art work, curiosities and unique furniture pieces (soon available)

Let's create your cosy, unique and color-full home together ..

First and only you will have to create a brief; sharing some of your ideas, your budget, a room sketch and photos of the space. Before the design process starts, we will have a chat on the phone (Zoom or just a call). During this call we will discuss your design hick-ups, questions and what more. We will work closely together with you to realize a room concept that totally suits your personality and lifestyle, today. All translated into a final room design. And only once you are totally satisfied, you will receive all the details that you will need to have to transform your space. As I strive to have you 100% happy with the result, I will make sure that every penny you spend on the package will be worth it!


Ideal for a grand room update, from wall to lamp. Making your house your one-of-a-kind home.

“The advice that Captain and Nel gave us, is right on point and complete. She advices you on using the right colors and tips on how to create serenity and cohesion in your home. Also she gave great storage solutions and of course a shopping list, taken into account our taste, the budget and the furniture we wanted (and had to) keep. We are fans!”

“The perfect combination of a well made and useful, but at the same time quick and not too expensive, advice. The design is made very visual with the 3D drawings, so you don’t have to imagine the design. And because of that, I immediately started recreating it myself for real. Very happy with the advice!!”

“Nicolien from Captain and Nel has given very nice interior advice, that really suits our taste. With use of the shopping list, her advice was very easy to implement in practice. And because of that, we have been spared hours of searching in furniture stores. Finally, I also appreciated that Nicolien suggested well-priced products in her shopping list.”

“We hired Nicolien / Captain and Nel because we had bought a 1930s house and wanted advice about the interior. Nicolien has helped us fantastically with the colors for the wall and woodwork. She also came up with all kinds of creative ideas that we had never thought of ourselves, such as certain designs for custom furniture. She has also always made a selection of furniture, tailored to our taste, of which we each time chose one. This has helped us in the selection process (and thus also saved a lot of time!). Thanks to her input, we were able to handle the renovation and furnishing well and it has become very beautiful. We are therefore very grateful to her and recommend her to everyone!”
