Jan Luijk

Dreamy. Dark and moody and dreamy. These stunning images are by photographer Jan Luijk. The first few photos are featured in the December ELLE Decoration UK and are of artist and interior designer Monique Meij-Beekman‘s home. Home sweet home! Atmospheric and beautifully curated. I must say though I can’t get enough of each and every one of the spaces Jan has captured. Beautiful photographs like these bring these spaces to life for me. Imagine someone trying to explain a grey on grey, monotone of a room and you may not be inspired. One look at these images and your mind is racing. Love!







I like the first photos, those who was published in Elle. Very exciting and in the same time very mellow.

By the way – Your new site is really great! 🙂

I’m with Becky – that must be tough to photograph. But I luuuuuuuuuv the dark spaces. So moody. I’ve got to put those in my inspiration folder.

These are gorgeous! I love the richness, especially in the first six.

Guau!The latest photos are from the hotel Castell d’Emporda, is a place I know very well and that I love, I was the first time in my honeymoon and then I went back about 4 times more, has a dream rooms.
The bedroom of my house is inspired in their bedrooms.
You see that in my blog.

And you can see more pictures of the remaining bedrooms of this hotel to my blog.

I love this – it combines two of my favourite things – design and Jonathon Rhys Davies. Can`t you imagine his majesty reclining on these sofas…..sublime……

Monique’s rooms are AMAZING! I will be moving to Venice, CA from Brooklyn soon. I’m so inspired now to go a bit moody with the interior for my little cottage. The contrast from the perpetual sunshine and flowers outside to a grey and sexy interior will make a really strong impact. Thanks!

Does anyone know what type of paint/technique is used on the walls to achieve that flat/soft effect? A black/tan mudding compound?
