Welcome to JOELIX.com where I'm celebrating interesting places, spaces and faces.
My name is Judith de Graaff and I'm a 37-year old graphic designer. I grew up in the Netherlands and have been living in France for the past 15 years. After attending the Academy of Art & Design in 's-Hertogenbosch (NL), I've been working in fashion, advertising and communication and currently work as a freelance graphic designer and blogger.
With my husband and cats, I live at Studio Sapique, an iconic industrial building from the 1960s, designed by French architect Claude André, which we entirely renovated. Studio Sapique was featured on Design*Sponge and in IKEA Family live magazine and vtwonen. Additional photos can be found here.
Besides my own space, I love exploring new places and share travel & interior design highlights on my blog. In previous years I've taken my readers along to Helsinki, Sweden, Berlin, Spain, Norway, Denmark and Antwerp. I had the honour to be part of the Helsinki Secret Residence (2016), Sunny Design Days (Spanish Design Tour) (2016) and DDN Blogsafari Salone del Mobile Milan (2017).
In 2013 my friend Igor from Happy Interior Blog and I founded Urban Jungle Bloggers, which grew to be a global community of plant lovers. It's all about bringing more greens into our homes and blogs. Every season we share a different plant-related topic that we (and over 2000 bloggers) interpretate in our own personal way. In October 2015 Urban Jungle Bloggers won the Meet The Blogger Innovation Award.
In September 2016 we launched our first Urban Jungle book, in English and in German, published by Callwey. It is currently in its 6th edition and will come out in French and Dutch in September 2017.
