Thanks to my sister's amazing eye - I have become a huge fan of Indigo!

Blue never fails to enliven the spirit and lift the soul.  Popular and peaceful, it is the perfect weekend color, promoting calm and recuperation.

I think I need to get myself some indigo pillows!

Are you an indigo fan?!

Belgian Pearls 3rd Anniversary


Dear friends and readers, today it is my 3rd blog anniversary!

I have such a great time blogging and have met so many wonderful people! Some of you became really good friends. I want to thank everyone of you, from around the world, following my blog!

I sincerely thank you for the fine comments on my blog posts and for the support I receive from oh so many blogcolleagues! I do hope you will understand that I don't have time to comment all of your blogposts (I wished I could!), but I do the best I can to reply to all the emails I receive from you (being one of my readers or blogcolleagues).

THANK YOU  my readers and colleagues for all your support and for being loyal followers of Belgian Pearls!

Today I posted some random chosen images of earlier blogposts and of which I do know you loved them.

Love the rustic yet modern simplicity of the this home!
It's a place where I can kick up my feet and just breath!

... For The Eclectic Soul

I love brave, brilliant minds who love to push the envelope when it comes to style/design! 
This spectacular pad has me thinking this family knows how to live and have fun!

They're brave but at the same time they stay within tasteful boundaries using organic raw materials and neutral colors; this creates that perfect canvas for whimsy!

Best wishes everyone!
