Belgian Style

I really admire how the talented interior designer Kay Douglass puts rooms together. And I particularly enjoy her interpretation of Belgian style. (A mix between the simple, quiet Swedish look and the more daring, elegant French style). It’s just a lovely combination. These images from House Beautiful have been posted to the left and the right for quite some time – but they never tire me! 

I love the old looking mirrors with the thick candles – almost a sacred area – bringing warmth and coziness to the dining room.

The red/rust color has always been a favorite accent color in my homes. It blends so well with neutrals.

What a lovely bedroom. Soothing, fresh, crisp, warm, simple and unexpected. Me like! (But personally I would have added some really contemporary bed lights – just to mix it up a little bit).

Lovely Bedroom

I am obsessing with bedrooms right now – gearing up to (at some point) remake a couple in my own home. This image is from Domino Magazine . I love the colors – especially the gray headboards. So fresh, so relaxing. And how fun with the fabric in the ceiling!  The table “Shine” from Shop Shine Home is also smashing. I could so move our guests in to this room!

Inspiration & Conversation Piece

I found this image in the trendy magazine Living Etc. What a great idea, to paint the drawers of an old  – not so loved – chest and give it new life and new style! I will, from now on, look at old chest of drawers with new eyes.  One day I will tackle this project myself!

3 Handsome Side Tables

I found these side tables in the latest catalogues from Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn. I think they are quite handsome and would totally work for me!

From the left: Drum Accent Table, $349 from Pottery Barn, Ginger Side Table, $299 from Crate & Barrel, Haven Nesting Tables, $699 (set of 2) from Pottery Barn.
