For the love of Belgian kitchens

 

I hope you all have enjoyed the Easter weekend! Here in Belgium it is still very cold for the time of the year. On Easter day it was even colder than it was on Christmas day! So we enjoyed the warmth of the fire place, browsing magazines and books.

I do know that you all love pictures of kitchens, especially Belgian designed kitchens. Let’s take a look at some new and some seen-before kitchen images.

 

This first picture definitely is one of my favorite Belgian kitchens. I love the combination of the white painted cabinetry, the ‘Witjes’ wall tiles, the Belgian ‘rouge belge’ marble of the counter tops and the Belgian blue stone floor. Notice also the steel door towards the living room.

This is a kitchen made in the workshop of our company and decorated by me. Again, a Belgian ‘rouge belge’ kitchen island counter top. For the floor is chosen for carrara marble. Above the Aga stove, you will notice the moroccan zelliges.The oak kitchen island stools are designed and made by Lefèvre Interiors.

This is a kitchen designed by Walda Pairon, one of my favorite Belgian designers. The kitchen walls are entirely covered with the ‘Witjes’ tiles.

Oak cabinetry and terracotta floor tiles, always a succesful combination.

This is a light stained oak kitchen we designed for a client’s chalet in Switzerland. Counter tops and floor in Belgian blue stone.

In this kitchen I especially love the design of the kitchen hood and the painted beamed ceiling.

This is a more contemporary kitchen which I really love. The white colour scheme of the cabinetry, the walls and floor tiles are the perfect backdrop for adding this oak ceiling beam and doors.

This kitchen is designed by the upcoming and talented Belgian architect Frederique Glorieux. In this kitchen Frederique has chosen for light stained oak cabinetry, kitchen island and table. Notice the modern lighting fixtures Frederique used here!

All in white kitchen. Did you notice the painted windows and shutters? And again a remarkable kitchen hood.

  1. The Walda Pairon kitchen and the Oak kitchen your company produced are my favourites. It's nice to see something different that shows some thought and obviously great quality.

  3. Hi greet

    Thanks do much for commenting on the progress of Patina farm. You were such an inspiration to us. I really look forward to hearing your thoughts. We are trying to bring a little Belgium to Ojai. We hope one day you can visit and stay in the guest house.

    Best Steve.

  5. Bonjour Greet,
    J'aime beaucoup le marbre rouge belge, les carreaux "Witjes", les éléments en chêne, le sol en dalles noires aussi.
    Je préfère les cuisines à l'ancienne que les trop modernes que je trouve vides et froides !
    Bonne journée,
    Céline.

  6. I loved this post Greet! All so beautiful....particularly your own Lefevre Oak kitchen and the Walda Pairon design. Calm colouring and gorgeous contrast of textures - I would be happy with any one of these stunning kitchens.

    Have a lovely day.
