i, I’m Patricia! Welcome to No Glitter No Glory, my online space for deco, design and style where I mostly write about my adventures in home renovation and design inspiration.

Apart from the DIY upgrades I make to my apartment, the house tours of my friends’ gorgeous homes and interior inspiration, you can occasionally find fashion & lifestyle posts and visual diaries from my travels. And of course the guilty pleasure that’s the cherry on my sundae: I also post geeky facts about my favorite movies and TV shows from time to time.

General rule of thumb: If I don’t think it’s aesthetically pleasing, you probably won’t find it here. In my daily life I’m a freelance photographer, stylist & content creator, and I live together with my boyfriend Dieter and my cat George in a 1930s apartment in Antwerp, Belgium.
