Jane Schouten Interiors

Maybe I've been living under a rock but I've only just discovered the joy that is Jane Schouten- a graphic designer, artist and shop owner who has the home of my dreams.

This is the kind of house I am working towards:


I already pin up my necklaces like in the above pic and have begun working on a wall full of different framed art and photography.

I definitely definitely don't have such lovely furniture :( Unfortunately for us the joy of being newly wed and having a small home means we only have one couch and one bean bag in our lounge! Haha.

And my kitchen isn't even close to being this lovely but i do have my own collection of pretty jars and tins and containers, and a perfectly mismatched set of cups and saucers and teapots, so that's a start!

  26. i love ths kitsch house, everything is so cute! but so girly, it's a bit difficult when you shar with your boy!!

  27. it's so light and bright and airy and colourful. i think you can do whatever you want with a room as long as the natural light is good to begin with. this house has fantastic lighting. the use of colour is really great too.
    i want a house like this although maybe not so many white walls. i think walls look great in mint green, pumpkin, duck egg blue, etc, etc...
