WHAT SERVICES DO I OFFER?
I am not an interior designer or architect.
I am a home styler / decorator.
That means I come in when the others have left the building:)
I can do any or all of the following things for you:
Help you get a better sense of what style is just right for you (colours, textures, mood).
Propose practical ways to achieve that style (from scratch or building on your current interior).
Offer an outsider's eye to spot typical home styling ‘mistakes’ and propose easy home styling hacks to fix them.
Find the perfect couch, table, rug, desk, lamp, … for your home and budget.
Come along with you to furniture stores to help you choose timeless pieces that you will never regret.
Go to stores myself + do research online for you.
Find the right contractors for home renovation projects and coordinate everything from price offers to execution with them.
De-clutter and re-organize a closet, a room, or your entire home.
Home styling is a process,
not an instant makeover.
I work with initial mood boards, but I believe in the magic of the journey: ideas taking shape along the way, one thing leading to the next.
Let me help you discover how to create a home that feels just right for you!
My home styling services are useful for people who do not have the time or inspiration to style or restyle their home, and who can afford to bring in someone for fully personalised, tailor-made guidance.
Hi, I am Truus Yperman, Brussels-based Stylist and Personal Shopper. I provide a wide range of styling and shopping services to my expat network, including home styling.
You see, style is as much about how you 'dress up' your home as it is about your wardrobe choices.
My father being an architect and my mother a decorator, home styling has always felt like a natural part of my habitat, ingrained in the everyday. That sense of mastery of colours, shapes, textures and proportions, I can pass it on to you.
I love what I do for a living, and people say it shows!

Your home styling journey starts with a FREE intake session at your home to determine together how I can help you. After that, my services are paid by the hour.

One-on-one home styling with the client: 90€/h

All prices are VAT incl.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY
F.C., CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER, July 2021
As a single man, when I moved into my new home recently, I was overwhelmed with the number of things to take care off. I’ve never been great at making choices, and I just don’t have time to run to a million stores, search online, purchase things, and coordinate all the little things involved in furnishing and decorating a house. Truus instantly understood what needed to be done, broke it down for me in manageable steps, and took care of everything one step at a time. She always made sure to involve me and keep me in the loop, but only for the fun things, like deciding the colour of the couch. All the other stuff, like deciding on square or rectangle pillows, finding a garbage bin that would fit inside my kitchen drawer, or figuring out how many plant pots to buy, she just did all by herself. If it had been just me by myself, I’d still be sitting on the floor:)
