This bright, inviting house, filled with sculpture, paintings and books, is home to Henriette, a painter, sculptress and art psychotherapist, her two teenage children and their two (extremely fluffy) cats. Having left her native Holland for London, Colombia and then Brazil twenty years ago, she now calls southern England home. Bringing together her experience of these cultures, and citing her design influences as Parisian (the painted furniture) and Scandinavian (all the white; the bare floors; the organisation), Henriette has created a home that has a truly international, European-inspired feel.
