Coffeeklatch is run by Magali Elali and Bart Kiggen who have what they call “creative chitchat” with interesting creative entrepreneurs in their homes or daily working environments. Coffeeklatch means ‘slow journalism using a fast medium’. i particularly loved their interview with garden designers Bart & Pieter.

Green is the new black. Just ask Bart Haverkamp and Pieter Croes who turned their love for nature into a beautiful profession. With their green thumbs they are able to create a unique environment, with the garden as their playground. We meet up for coffee in their loft and atelier, which is really a stunning green and quiet oasis in the city. In the afternoon we head off to their holiday home in the countryside. It’s not surprising to state that green is the red thread in their lives, for nature is everywhere.
