Hello! I'm Marian 

 And I create spaces 

that are beautiful, functional, and inspired.

About Me
Experience
What I Am

I'm a professional freelance interior designer and stylist originally from Manila, now based in the Netherlands.

 

I've been living below sea level now for five years with my husband Ray and our furbabies - a cat named Finn and our Romanian rescue dog Mia.

For nearly a decade, I have worked on a variety of interior residential projects, ranging from styling and designing starter homes to realizing turnkey renovation projects.

 

I have also conceptualized and designed several commercial spaces such as restaurants, bars and cafes. 

A visual storyteller with a knack for the eclectic.

A meticulous spatial planner and problem-solver with the client's needs (and budget) always in mind.

An avid flea market fiend on a constant lookout for the unique.

Abstract Background

Marian was a consummate professional with a great eye for detail. Not only was the design flawless, but she made sure that our bathroom renovation went smoothly from start to finish. Couldn't recommend her more!

Wilma, Zaandam, NL

We appreciated how she went above and beyond to find the perfect pieces to fit our new home. She helped us navigate (and simplify) the tedious process of selection that we wouldn't have been able to do in a short amount of time. We can't wait to work with her again in the near future.

Bram, Amsterdam, NL

My wife and I engaged Marian from Design Two & Five to help us design and furnish the interior of our rental apartment.

 

She did a wonderful job with capturing the aesthetic we wanted to go for, and came up with an excellent selection of furniture and other pieces to decorate our place. Having an interior designer like Marian went a long way in giving our new home that special touch, and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
