We'd like to introduce you to Kate Jansen...
Wow is definitely the word that comes to mind when we scroll Kate Jansen's instagram feed so it's no surprise she named her business @wowhaus.au. Her imaginative home is quite literally the dictionary definition of 'colour pop', exploding with curious collections and playfully blending old and new, seamlessly mixing beach vibes with a distinctly British flavour. Kate's sunny family home is in the Mornington Peninsular, not far from Melbourne if you're not a local! But the family moved from England five years ago, so there's signs of their travels wherever you look.
As an Artist, Kate brings colour to life with a contagious sense of joy, her current Palm Springs inspired collection is available at Greenhouse Interiors if you're curious!
Kate has a bit of a thing for lockers so we challenged her to create three different looks with one locker and of course, she did not disappoint.

Tell us a little about you…
How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Eclectic, fun, vintage, creative and colourful! (That's four!)
What’s your inspiration?
What’s your idea of a perfect weekend?
Jake tends to collect stuff, a lot of stuff! He loves his precious stones, crazy glasses and dress up gear. He also has a special collection of cars so his room is really a very sentimental place. We adore his spotty bedding from More Than Ever.
Jazmin's room, the teen! The locker is great for her to keep her laptop and iPad in the locker there plus her favourite makeup and favourite perfume.
This is our sitting room/tv nook. This is the room where anything goes - books, framed prints, comfy bean bags, favourite little things collected from boot sales and charity shops.
