Imet Paulien back in my early fashion blogging days and she was still very very young. We attended the same events, and I saw her become the ultimate ambassador for laid back chic you regularly bump into on Pinterest today. Trough the years, our paths kept crossing on- and offline, and I got to know her as the cool no-nonsense girl she is, beautiful both inside and out. I’ve been telling everyone she’s the rising star to watch for years, and I’m pleased to say I haven’t been proven wrong just yet!
Cool girls seem to travel in packs, and so Paulien moved into her Antwerp flat last year with one of her besties Robin, one of the driving forces behind Stalker Antwerp. She organizes and styles events ranging from the well known party concept “Leave Us At Dawn” to “Dagen zonder Vlees”. I’d spotted on Instagram that these ladies’ signature style had translated to their new home. Could I maybe stop by for some pictures? “Sure, but we have to make sure it’s ready first!”.
I arrived at their flat on a grey winter wednesday while they were still making sure everything was picture perfect. I soon learn that the success of their cosy home lies in the contrast between their styles. Robin’s style is vintage, while Paulien loves Scandinavian interiors. Robin is a bit OCD, Paulien is Miss Nonchalance. A perfect mix and match formula.
