Eye-catching interiors

Always searching for the right inspiring pictures to present at my client, my experience is that there are some pictures in my files which always catch my attention!
So that's why I want to show you some of them and maybe one of these will be an eye-catcher to you.

Neutral colours.

The red colour of the seatfabric in an almost white surrounding. So peaceful.

That seat!!!

Wonderful combination ! The colour of the sofa, the antique vases and the cabinet are all of a kind.

The peaceful modern painting above an antique table.

Again these beautiful chairs.

I feel as being in the dining room of a castle!

A big kitchentable with a combination of different chairs. Why not?

I love all of it!

Love the chairs!

So inviting to take a seat!

Meditating room

The colour and the pattern of the walnut paneling and cabinetry add warmth to this room.

I feel Autumn in here!

The seat, the footstool and that wine table!

My eyes are always first focused on that dining room and in slow motion they come back to the foreground of the image.

This could be my future office!!!

The big fire place, the beautiful chandelier, the grey tones,...

Natural materials used here as brick for walls and floor and the linen fabric for the sofa.

This was the inspiring picture for my own library at home.

Bringing in a vivid colour.

The warmth of the oak paneling and matching colours for the curtains , the seat and the floor.

Dark colours for the furniture and the beige linen for the sofa.

Beautiful wooden table on the brick floor and the shape of the steel windows!

I wonder which images you will pick out?

  4. My favorites are images 12 and 13! THOSE HEDGES!!!! Just, wow. And the texture of limepaint works so well on all of the architectural detailing of 13. Beautiful, beautiful..

  5. Very difficult to choose.... Would love to see 200 years from now the patina on walnut walls of #17.

  6. Image 24...and your orangery! So inspiring. Oh, Greet I found the most beautiful set of mirrored French doors (saved from an Italian villa)...and I think they're too big to fit in my front door! Dreaming meets reality. But thank you for such dreamy pictures. Trish

  7. Greet,

    So much inspiration .. . but, my personal favorites are :
    #4 - that perfect red chair!
    #12 - the replication of the curve of the chaise
    and the curve in the hedge!
    #16 - every inch pure Axel!

    Thanks for this beautiful post -

  14. Absolutely gorgeous! My favorite is image #2. I love this spare, elegant style of decorating. It may be time to find a new home for some of my furniture...this gives me ideas.


  15. Greet, these images are mesmerizing. I've had the chance to visit Kasteel Gravenwezel on two occasions and these photos of the original kitchen, oriental salon and study take me back there. I am renovating my antebellum house (c. 1858) in Tennessee now and your site provides much inspiration. Thank you!!!
