Belgian Inspired

Belgian Pearls

Restoration Hardware



Velvet & Linen

All the rage now: Belgian design. I have just discovered this relaxed style. Very industrial, light, aged wood, overscaled lighting, and beautiful linen on oversized furniture. Hardwood floors in their natural state. No staining, just raw. I love it. It lends to such a relaxed and comforting feel. That is definitely my style. I just want to sink into one of these seats and cozy up. It speaks calm to me. Like the hectic day will all go away once I walk into a room filled with items from this design venue.

This design style has been around for a couple of years now, but is starting to be taken seriously here in the US by being incorporated into the lines of companies like Restoration Hardware. Joni from Cote de Texas did a great post about their new line and how she thinks it will do. Brooke from Velvet & Linen has been using this style for awhile now. She has a gorgeous shop. You also have to check out BoBo's Intriguing Objects. They have amazing designs. And don't miss Greet's blog, Belgian Pearls. She is an interior decorator in Belgium! So, enjoy and let me know what you think.

I just looked at that coffee table at Restoration Hardware last Sunday! Love it! but it's really large and even more expensive...
