Pleasure in Arranging

We have quite a few interesting books at work that we sometimes use for inspiration and one that I think is very beautiful is Joys of Life: How Geoffroy Van Hulle takes Pleasure in Arranging by Jo De Poorter. Geoffroy Van Hulle is a Belgian interior designer and kind of a hottie, see below. I love the description for the book, "The interior designer talks about the nature of his gift - the joy he creates in the houses and lives of his clients. He offers suggestions for enjoyable music and practical tips on interior design." I look forward to following Van Hulle's career. Who knows, he may be the next Axel Vervoordt.

The "Van" is lower case..... meaning from.... "von" meaning of

I'm so glad everyone likes his work!

Oh, and to Anonymous, the Van is capitalized on Van Hulle's website, http://www.geoffroyvanhulle.be/about.html. So I think the "rule" isn't always followed by everyone. But thanks for trying.
