A conversation with Romy Boomsma

What’s the one thing that you do everyday that brings you joy?

Every morning we start the day by having breakfast as a family. I also enjoy observing the birds in the garden while starting the day. I do this even more since we’ve moved.

Where is your happy place?

At home. For quite some time, we dreamed about living on a farm and now this dream is our reality. But to be honest, it still feels like waking up in a dream, even in these strange times. We live in our own small world where we are surrounded by animals and nature.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received yourself?

Always be yourself, and trust your gut feeling.

What is your favourite Karolin Van Loon jewel you own?

That’s a hard question. But I would choose my black Rocky ring. It’s like a comet and I can’t stop staring at it when wearing it.

Do you have a specific Karolin Van Loon jewel on your wishlist?

Well, what’s not on the wishlist? I love everything. If I have to choose: the Kaia ring in blue/green, the Rocky ring in light blue and burgundy and the Charlize necklace. Like I said: can’t really choose because every piece is so unique and beautiful.

What are your favourite nail polish colours of the collection?

I really love Granite Rose and Ardoise Bleue.

I love …

my family and friends, and being in nature surrounded by animals. Preferably all of those combined.

I wish …

I can soon hug my friends again.

I crave …

sunshine and easy days.

I dream …

it feels like I’m living my dream.
