What drives me as an interior architect is my love to help people. It makes me truly happy bringing your happiness to the next level, at your place to be, where you feel safe, at ease and proud.

For me interior design is about people. It's about you and your identity. Whether it's brand of personal identity, it's about you and your comfort and ease. In my work as an interior architect I translate your (brand) identity into an high end conceptual interior design.

I do this by seeking depth, in our collaboration, but mostly by being truly interested in your personality and your company, what motivates and drives you: your passion. To get to know the best version of you and your brand, so that I can design the best spatial version of you and your brand. 

As I put all my love into your design, my personal characteristics are my design signature: 

no nonsense | As I believe in action rather than words, I create peace, unity and functionality into space. Often translated into customized furniture, as part of the architecture itself.
elegance | My interior designs form a well-thought-out elegance, in which all parts harmoniously fit into each other.
sparkling | As I am often called "never a dull moment", why shouldn't my interior designs be the same? ;) A spark celebrates life!

Being raised with the frase “modesty is a virtue”, as a kid I was modest, a bit shy, but couldn’t stand it when people were made fun of, and used to stand up and help those in trouble.

Yet the rebel in me made me an adventurous girl too. I would rather go out and explore than playing at home. Once at home I would love to play with forms, creating new exciting patterns and images, unconsciously thinking in possibilities and solutions.

The adventurer in me really got to me when I was 23 years old. Being raised in Brabant in the Netherlands, I packed a few bags and took off to live in Barcelona in Spain. This adventure took 9 years. I always joke around, saying I got a long childhood ;) but it did form me a great deal to who I am today, loving to travel and explore and take all those inspirations back home with me and in my work.


While still having the need in me to help others, making their lives happier ánd creating exiting forms, patterns, possibilities and solutions, (interior) architecture got more and more of my attention. So at the age of 32 I packed a few bags again and returned to the Netherlands, to Amsterdam, to start the education architectural design at the Rietveld academy, from which I graduated at the age of 37 with chair Flip.

A year after - in 2012 - I won both the public price & award Elle Decoration Design Talent Award by Cappellini with Flip. Studio Vanessa van Tiggelhoven was born! The first few years as a product designer: Furniture line BenJaMin under my own label & the collection Kids Forest for the Portuguese label Muratto follow. Eventually I go back to my roots, Brabant, and return to my true passion: interior architecture.


Now you got to know a bit of me, I would love to get to know you!
