Pieter Porters started as a florist, but soon expanded his career with the design of interiors. Eventually, he founded House of Porters, a shop showroom and interior design agency, with which he achieved great success both nationally and internationally.
Master-decorator Pieter Porters was born in Leut near Maasmechelen Belgium. He began his career as a young florist when he came to Antwerp in the early 90's for an apprecticeship - and decided to stay. Soon after he opened his own flower shop, he was quickly asked to provide plants for houses and orangeries and even furniture too. Eventually he ended up completely decorating their houses.
"Warm timeless interiors that harmonize perfectly with the architecture of a house."
As a flower arranger, Porters soon became famous. He sold 250.000 copies of his first book 'Geschikt & Gebonden' (Lannoo publishers) worldwide which got him into the top sellers of the genre. He later also published 'Bloemen voor het interieur' and on interior decoration 'Pieter Porters Wonen', 'Senses of Living' and his later book 'Elegance & Decadence'.
"An interior should serve the occupants and adapt itself to their mood."
Pieter Porters, stands for an abundance of elegance with a hint of decadence. For him, it means creating a stylish and sumptuous nest where it's cosy, where you want to touch things, where light scents and warmth adapt themselves to your mood. For him, there are no cold rooms and hard colours but warm timeless interiors that harmonize perfectly with the architecture of a house and will develop through a lifetime along with the occupants.
In his view, an interior should serve the occupants and adapt itself to their mood: sometimes light and open, sometimes warm and secure. In short: 'A way of living'.
