DECO got a burst of inspiration from photographer Janneke Luursema, from both her own instagram feed @still_______ and her recommendations of who to follow.
Introducing the sections of each ELLE Decoration issue, are powerful opener images. They are carefully selected artworks, sourced internationally, that suite the theme of each issue. In our latest Green Issue, we introduced you to the botanical photographs of Amsterdam based Janneke Luursema (who nearly made the cover image too!). Constantly inspired by her exquisite instagram feed @still_______, we got to know Janneke a bit better:
