Pia Jane Bijkerk, Amsterdam. Text by Kate Veling, photos by Alan Jensen. As an internationally acclaimed stylist, blogger, photographer, and author specializing in interiors, still life, and food, Pia divides her time between Sydney, Paris, and her houseboat, actually a century-old barge that has been converted. Her home is her workshop, and although the space is small, Pia finds endless inspiration there. But she can't adopt too many of the lovely things she comes across in her work. "Living in the houseboat has been the ultimate test in my ability to restrain myself," she says. "I think the rule with any small space like this is one thing in, one thing out."
