Hello, my name is Claudia Arends, and I am the founder and author of DesignClaud. DesignClaud is a blog about travels, interiors, style and lifestyle.


– Southern Australia 2014 –

As a Dutch girl I love to travel. My first big trip was in 2010 when I went to Australia and New Zealand for 7 months. The second big trip I’ve made was a journey around the world together with my husband. We’ve spend almost 2 years in foreign countries together. This is when DesignClaud was born. A place to share my travel experiences, the beauty of the world and my passion for interiors and design.

I am an design lover, interior architect, writer and stylist with a degree in interior architecture and styling. My passion for interiors started when I was young. I drew perspective drawings, I changed my room every week, I collected accessories to decorate my room with and I got my dad to paint my room in a different color every other month. When I got older my passion for interiors was still there so I decided to get my degree in Interior & Styling at Sint Lucas Boxtel, a Dutch school. After that I went to the Art Academy in Maastricht to study Architectural Designs which was also focused on Interior Architecture.

Travelling and Interior styling brings me joy and happiness. I hope it brings you pleasure reading my blog.

* UPDATE March 2015 *

On the 26th of February my daughter Jaya was born. As you can understand a big change in our live. She will be part of my inspiration for this blog. Soon more about our little family life.
