Warmest greetings and welcome to Materia Lumina!

My name is Eefje Van Den Broeck - Theeuws and I am the founder of Materia Lumina.  I am a designer, artist, healer, yogini and lover of nature, truth and beauty and I have 20+ experience in the realms of home design, spiritual practice and ceremonial healing.  

Ever since I can remember, I have deeply appreciated beautiful, soulful and healing homes and spaces as well as the energetics woven into those spaces.

 I love places and spaces that offer me a sense of beauty, welcome and comfort when I arrive and where I can feel a heart-warming soulfulness residing.  Even if I have never been in a place before and am visiting for the very first time, I love those that give me the subtle sense of feeling at home.  Places like this exude a certain mix of peace, calm, presence and "just-rightness".

After years of designing homes and spaces for many different people along with many years of experience in energy healing, spiritual practice and ceremonial work, I founded MATERIA LUMINA as a place where home design and healing come together and where I help people create spaces that feel truly nourishing to the soul.  Each person and each family is different so each home will be different too but creating home in a healing way is a journey that is well worth the effort as it sets the tone for your entire life and all that happens in it.  

More than anything, I love helping people create inspiring, soulful and healing spaces they truly love and that help them to live their most beautiful and most authentic lives.    



my journey

Growing up in the quiet village of Heide, just north of Antwerp, Belgium, I come from a region known for its incredible natural beauty as well as one that is also highly regarded for its bespoke architecture and interior design sensibility. Attention to quality, materiality and detail as well a sense of timelessness and understated elegance are all hallmarks of this uniquely Belgian design aesthetic that I grew up with.  All around me were charming renovated farmhouses with endless green fields and nature reserves in the country as well as sumptuous guilded houses, centuries old churches, cobblestone streets and historic 11th-19th century buildings of various architectural styles all around the city.  There was also a thoughtful way in which the charm of the old world was met with the more streamlined aesthetics of the modern world and the two often sat side by side in very creative and beautiful ways.  

After moving to California's west coast as a young person and learning to love it too for its majestic landscapes and distinctly relaxed and natural way of life, I decided to follow my love of spaces and studied Interior Design and Architecture in college.  Alongside my design studies and work, I also deeply engaged with energy healing studies and spiritual practices at the same time.  Following my own unique design and spirituality path and calling over the years, I found myself living in incredible places like zen monasteries and deeply sacred lands along the way.  And as I experienced more spaces dedicated to spirit and healing as well as more of my own healing over time, I began to realize how important healthy, well balanced and inspiring dwelling spaces truly are for the human being to thrive and live a healthy life.


For me, the most evocative spaces are those that are deeply connected to the land and the heart in a palpable way. True home is a place where our heart and soul is tended to and where a heartfelt sense of belonging become the energetic reality that weaves itself through the space. 

"Home is our very own sacred space, our sanctuary and our nest and a beautiful and harmonious home is incredibly important to our health and well-being."
