I just love the way Axel Vervoordt is storing furniture and decorative items.
Kanaal, a former distillery complex at Wijnegem (near Antwerp) that the Axel Vervoordt company purchased in 2000, is the perfect location to store lots of antique furniture.
It is always so inspiring walking around the warehouses of Kanaal. Visiting Belgium, you really should visit this gorgeous site!
The way Axel Vervoordt is displaying his collection of antiques, turns every single piece into ‘a piece of art’ !
What do you think about Axel’s smart way of storing furniture and decorative items?

I am so sorry for not knowing the names of the magazines where I found these images. The images, published in earlier issues of magazines, I filed long time ago and I only took note of the name of the photographer.

Hi Stardust readers! I am Laura from Top This Top That and I am so excited to be spending some time with you and Olga today. I wanted to show you a few of my favorite room makeovers that I have done and shared with my readers at Top This Top That . I have lived in my home for about 9 years and each room has probably seen a makeover- at least once. Here's a few of my favorites.
I was recently challenged with what to do with the faux stone effect in my guest bath. This is what it use to look like before
They are Nancy Meyers’ daily reads!
Yes indeed, THE Nancy Meyers, the writer/director of films like Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday and Father of the Bride.
Of course we do know Nancy here in Belgium, and love all of her gorgeous films!
A few days ago I received emails from readers telling me that Nancy had named my blog in a short interview in the latest issue of Elle Decor, titled ‘12 things she can’t live without’. Can you imagine how thrilled I was to hear that?! Was this correct?? Where could I see this interview as there are no copies of the issue to find in Belgium?
When finally I discovered the interview on Heather’s blogpost this week (see Habitually Chic blog), I realized this was true! I couldn’t believe my eyes!!!
Next to Habitually Chic and Remodelista, Belgian Pearls was named as one of Nancy’s favorite Home Decor Blogs.
Thank you so much Nancy! I feel so very honored !
I do hope you will still love reading Belgian Pearls in future!
