A designer guesthouse in a small Belgium village is on the hot list for me this week! Not your usual style of a B&B, but completely enticing and inviting nevertheless! The owner of this beautiful Dutch farm is an architect, interior designer and filmmaker with a love for iconic designer pieces.
Beautifully furnished and tastefully styled with classic designer pieces by Verner Panton, Arne Jacobsen, Charles and Ray Eames and accompanied with items acquired from the owner's travels around the world, expressing a slight ethnic feel to this neutral space.
The open space, abundance of natural light and use of concrete makes this home a special to me. You'd almost expect the home to feel a little cold and unwelcoming given the cool palette and extensive use of concrete on floors and walls. Yet, balance is restored with layers of texture, including timber, fur and leather to make this home feel cozy and warm.
For a similar look in your home, try these tips:
1 // Pare back your colour palette to neutral tones only, including black, tan leather, timber and white.
2 // For this eclectic look, invest in classic, designer pieces to mix with your collections, heirlooms and travel purchases for a personalised space.
3 // Use pops of bright colours in a couple of rooms to break up the consistent theme for an unexpected flavour.
4 // Layer with as many different materials as possible, to ensure your space feels warm, cosy and inviting.
