My name is Yvonne Cocco Jimenez, the founder of Style Me Cocco. I am originally from the sunny Caribbean, but adopted the Netherlands as my home —I’ve been living here for more than seven years.
Love for home styling and home staging
My job as a marketing manager for the tourism industry took me from Brussels to London, Frankfurt and Stockholm, with each city serving as a great source of inspiration for my decor instinct. While moving so much was stressful, it also meant that I would constantly find joy in starting anew with a blank canvas to furnish a new home. I loved it so much that I realized that’s where my life’s passion lies… and that’s how Style Me Cocco was born.
I have a title in Home Staging from ESMADECO in Madrid, accredited by the International Association of Home Staging Professionals, as well as a certificate as an Interior Design and Color Specialist from the QC Academy in Canada.
I did mention that I’ve worked in the tourism industry, so traveling and photography are some of my biggest hobbies. In order to become more technically proficient, I took a specialized course at Barcelona’s IDEP. So now I’m pleased to offer interior photography as part of my home staging packages —because amazing photos are certainly crucial when selling a property.
