It's been a decade since Judith Muijtjens first launched her design agency, Wonderful Day Design. Over that time, the Eindhoven-based architect and interior designer's projects have included workplace, educational, civic, residential, and more. She is behind several inspiring projects in the Netherlands, which stretch throughout Amsterdam, the Hague, Eindhoven, Maastricht, and multiple other Dutch cities.

Judith Muijtjens is particularly known for her experience in interior design for educational facilities – whether primary, secondary, or higher. Projects in the field have included the Tilburg University in Tilburg, the Zuyd University of Applied Sciences in Heerlen, and the Natuurtalent Child Centre in Helden.

The hard side of interior design suits clients more. It taps into technology, the budget, and planning. The soft side, on the other hand, suits the end users more. When approaching the soft side, we discuss feelings, the atmosphere, and creating a sense of home.
