Just the other day, I received a lovely comment from a fellow blogger…the best part, I am a fan of hers! Greet Lefevre writes a beautifully inspiring blog called Belgian Pearls…I discovered her well over a year ago and have been following her ever since…I never thought she would discover me! What an incredible gift! So today’s post is extra special because I know she is on the other side of the Atlantic reading this…

Let me begin by saying I LOVE Belgian design and what is represents…in two words, effortless sophistication…it’s easy and relaxed yet at the same time celebrates a deep respect for the past…soft, sumptuous linen fabrics, natural woods with an aged patina, honed stone surfaces, carefully chosen antiques, earthy neutral palettes…every design element is beautiful in and of itself…fuse them together, and you have the makings of a masterful timeless environment…and don’t think the design world hasn’t noticed the versatility and allure of Belgian design…the best of the best have embraced this aesthetic…from Washington DC designer Darryl Carter to the re-imagined line of Belgian inspired furniture by Restoration Hardware, we are seeing Belgian influences everywhere we look…I couldn’t be more excited to share with you these mouth watering interiors designed by Lefevre Interiors, a fourth generation family owned business of cabinetmakers run by Greet and her husband…straight from Belgium, these interiors express the essence of Belgian design…please take time to enjoy the details…thank you Greet for inspiring me with your thoughtful eye…
