Hey Vivian & Jantine,
When and where did you two meet?
We met in 2006 when we both started our study at the Artemis Styling Academy in Amsterdam. We both lived in Alkmaar really close to each other and discovered this during our study.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of ‘April and May’?
Sharing and creating stories in our studio, blog and store.
What defines good taste?
We think this is something you don’t need to think about too much. We don’t think too much about it and just stay close to ourselves and what we like and fits us.
Name 6 things that inspire you?
Nature, cities, books, passionate people, instagram
You have accomplished a lot already, what dreams are you still chasing after?
We do what we like and every year things happen that makes us proud. We work hard to accomplish what we are doing but always think about new projects and how to develop and get the most out of what we create. This year was all about a new identity with a new blog, store and logo. Next year will be more about developing and creating new concepts and collaborations and growing our company.
Moments of Light is all about sharing beautiful and important moments together. Which ‘moment’ from the collection is your favourite and why?
We don’t have a one specific moment that we like the most. Every moment is a great way to express how you feel and I think we all have these moments to connect too.
What do you admire in each other?
Jantine: I admire the way Vivian looks at life and moments, her true passion and knowledge about interior. And her clean desk…:)
Vivian: Besides her desk, Jantine is very organized and a perfectionist. She really dives into subjects and is only satisfied when things are all sort out and work perfectly. And she’s a great mom. Most important of all.
What’s your favourite memory in the history of April and May?
We have many but this year it is our new blog, store and logo.
Last question: What do you want to share with us?
Stay true to yourself, believe in what you do and trust your intuition.
Thank you, ladies.
