Belgian style living rooms


Elegant Belgian living rooms.
If you like to decorate your living room in the Belgian style, you should combine rustic elements with a modern aesthetic to create a simple, not boring, yet cozy and comfortable room.
Choose for a neutral and soft color palette, no strong colors. Notice that nowadays there is a growing tendency to paint walls in a pure white.
Bring in rustic elements as reclaimed ceiling beams, reclaimed wood floorboards or reclaimed stone flooring.
Pay attention to the fire place and keep it in proportion with the architecture of the room.
Combine antique pieces with modern furniture.
Coffee and side tables can be made of metal or wood, or have a metal base mixed with a wooden or stone top.
Avoid decorative excess to keep the room clean and simple.
Add well-chosen accessories, as wicker baskets, antique or new made pottery and ceramics, in combination with simple artwork.
Use Belgian linen for seat upholstery, slipcovers, pillows and drapes.
Add throw pillows, using them as a color accent in your living room.

Things I would love to share with you today


I would love to invite you to tour the home of New York based interior designer Cheryl Skoog Tague.
Her home is featured in the September/October issue of magazine. It even made the cover if this issue!

Cheryl’s company designs, builds and furnishes high end residential and commercial properties.
Cheryl went all over to Europe to find reclaimed materials and antiques. By using salvaged materials and antiques her house looks very old and authentic.
On one of her trips to Europe, I met Cheryl here in Belgium as she was looking for antique chimney pieces!

Wishing it was real


The Belgian chocolatier brand (founded in 1926) is known in over 80 countries around the world and owns and operates more than 450 boutiques and shops worldwide from New York to Paris, Tokyo to Dubai.
In 2009 Godiva opened the shop ‘Chocoiste’, a new concept store in the popular Harajuku district in Tokyo, Japan. The famous Japanese based interior design firm , founded by Masamichi Katayama, completed this exceptional shop design.
The shop has a primarily classical interior, combining humorous and fun design details such as the “melting chocolate” ceiling, which looks as if it's dripping with chocolate.
Visitiors would wish it was real and could eat chocolate off the walls and ceiling.
