Born and bred Jan Juc local Prudence Caroline, has some serious skills with a paint brush. This Australian artist has found herself a cult following through A-list admirers to her work being featured on top television shows and magazines. Prudence describes her style as “scruffy and haphazard”. Her incredible abstract artworks take influence from some of our favourites things, mid century furniture, textiles, street art, nature and wildlife. She has a focus on creating art with inspiration being drawn from the “everyday”, although her work is anything but ordinary. We love the liveliness that her art and prints bring to a space, each piece being as unique and eclectic as the next.

We couldn’t not love an editorial filled with denim. Photographer Rokas Darulis shoots Katryn Kruger for L’Officiel Mexico May 2015. Fashion editor Katy Lassen pair assembles made up of chambray, dark denim, and white for the ‘Loose blues’ editorial. The shoot showcases both masculine and utilitarian denim pieces, mixed with more feminine fluted denim skirts and softer white accents. Simple but striking.

Our ultimate style muse, no one comes quite compares to Jane Birkin. Her style is one of the most coveted and has passed the test of time, still being relevant and referenced today. Known for her front bangs, wicker baskets and impeccable style, Birkin’s style has always been so effortless but well considered. We don’t know if we will ever look quite as good in a white blouse and a pair of blue jeans, but we’ll keep trying…

Interior | Farmhouse

North of The Netherlands, is where you will find this little old farm in Workum. This countryside farmhouse has now been renovated into a beautiful family home. We love the warm rustic elements of the home mixed with hints of modern scandi design. The use of light timbers, concrete and streamline modern furnishings work in contrast with the mint green feature walls and an array of mismatched and vintage furniture, crockery and relics. Finally, no farmhouse would be complete without a fireplace and a wood-burning stove.
