Must Read: All The Luck In The World

I recently had the delight of seeing Jane Schouten at Meet The Blogger recently in Amsterdam and she gave me some gorgeous postcards that I immediately came home to post on my mood board. Jane is such a lovely person, I’ve known her now for several years — in fact we first met three years ago in Amsterdam at a blogger meet up organized by Yvonne and I. Jane is known and loved by so many online for her blog and shop, All The Luck In The World, which I learned about way before I even met her back in 2008.

Photo taken at Villa Augustus, a place where I want to plan a girl’s weekend this Fall. A mini escape is calling loudly lately!

Lovely Jane has been around online for awhile now and continues to inspire me with her fresh, quirky take on homespun interiors with an artistic point-of-view. Here are some recent photographs that she has taken in and outside of her home that I found so inspiring — and I’m willing to bet these photos will lure you over to Jane’s world if you haven’t already visited her on her blog or in her little online shop.

A DIY project where Jane shows you how to do something creative with a simple photo cube. This is something I’ve done in the past, using these cubes to display mini prints and little things from my forest walks, but I never thought to put them on the wall. Brilliant – you can find the project details here.





Isn’t Jane’s eye so lovely? What a nice way to begin a weekend, isn’t it? With a fresh, creative open-to-anything mindset. Love it. This is what decorating should be – personalized, fun, original and a bit of who gives a damn. :)
