Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Photographer Hotze Eisma

Dutch photographer Hotze Eisma has been shooting for almost two decades, and has worked up a great portfolio that is really out of the ordinary! You can browse hundreds of beautiful pictures, but you can also download pdf's with many more photos from each home. It's like a free interior design book!

I am going to show you some of my favourites, but this is just the top of the iceberg, so you should really go and have a look for yourself...

    Fabulous resource, thanks Emma! I did find that a few of the pdf's downloaded as blanks - maybe my own settings. Lovely, lovely work.
