Tinka’s work and her home are intertwined. She’s the founder of Solve My Space and calls herself a «chaos counselor, part-organizer, part-designer, part-life coach.» She loves improving people’s lives by finding creative solutions for their living spaces. As the daughter of a journalist, she lived in seven countries in 14 years, and moving so often instilled a number of qualities like adventure and adaptability, but also wanting to have roots.
