Greet is an interior decorator from Belgium who really knows how to live the good Belgian life and who writes the popular blog Belgian Pearls. Together with her husband and brother she runs LeFevre Interiors where they create the most beautiful wood panels. Her home is a great example of how traditional Belgian style can be created today and look as if it’s been around for generations. Back in 2000 I visited Belgium and I was absolutely enamored with the architecture and interiors. Belgian interior is all about patina, comfort and texture, hence the famous Belgian linen. Belgian Interiors are perhaps much influenced by traditional French design but more understated. Usually, deep seated sofas are used and covered in plain fabrics, either linen or velvet, iron or crystal lighting are often used. Belgian Interior is the kind that one would never get tired of because its style is so much in synch with nature ( putty-like paint colors, textured walls, stone floors and wood panel rooms, that it’s quite easy to incorporate various pieces influenced by other styles, such as Gothic-like items that Greet shows us in the last image- to neoclassical or even Chinoiserie. If I ever have a house in the South of France or in Belgium, fingers crossed, this is a style I would definitely go for and I will for sure ask Greet to help me. You should see all the wonderful and inspiring work Greet and her company LeFevre have created. Below are images of her gorgeous home. Enjoy!
