Always searching for the right inspiring pictures to present at my client, my experience is that there are some pictures in my files which always catch my attention!  So that’s why I want to show you some of them and maybe one of these will be an eye-catcher to you.

Neutral colours.
 
 The red colour of the seatfabric in an almost white surrounding. So peaceful.

That seat!!!
Wonderful combination ! The colour of the sofa, the antique vases and the cabinet are all of a kind.

The peaceful modern painting above an antique table.

Again these beautiful chairs.

I feel as being in the dining room of a castle!

A big kitchentable with a combination of different chairs. Why not?

I love all of it!

Love the chairs!

So inviting to take a seat!

Meditating room


The colour and the pattern of the walnut paneling and cabinetry add warmth to this room.

                                     
I feel Autumn in here!

The seat, the footstool and that wine table
 My eyes are always first focused on that dining room and in slow motion they come back to the foreground of the image.

This could be my future office!!!

The big fire place, the beautiful chandelier, the grey tones,…

Natural materials used here as brick for walls and floor and the linen fabric for the sofa.

                   
This was the inspiring picture for my own library at home.

Bringing in a vivid colour.

The warmth of the oak paneling and matching colours for the curtains , the seat and the floor.

 Dark colours for the furniture and the beige linen for the sofa.
 
Beautiful wooden table on the brick floor and the shape of the steel windows!I wonder which images you will pick out?

The perfect beauty of imperfection.. Axel Vervoordt

Posted by on Sep 29, 2014 in Article | 0 comments

Muted tones, weathered surfaces, richly patinated antiques, and a mix of ancient and modern artworks that share abstract, universal qualities.. these are the signs of the art of Axel Vervoordt. Minimalist spaces where precedence is given to exquisite compositions of sculptural furnishings and art.. whatever Vervoordt does, it tends to be on an impressive scale.

Over the years, art has become a prominent part of Mr. Vervoordt interest. As his team, he often plays a curatorial role for clients, even continuing to make acquisitions for his foundation. Acquisitions that can range from an early-Cycladic head, more than 4,000 years old to a 15th-century Thai Buddha hand to postwar works by artists from the “Zero group” in Europe and the “Gutai Movement” in Japan, always looking for what is universal in art what is timeless,  like the work of Kazuo Shiraga, Lucio Fontana, Günther Uecker, Jef Verheyen, James Turrell or Anish Kapoor, among his few favorites.

His clients are fashinated by the Belgian antiquarian’s cerebral good taste. An early proponent of mixing antiques with contemporary art, Mr. Vervoordt creates refined interiors, linen-covered furniture, an earthy palette, old masters mixed with archeological artifacts, that reach for the sublime. It’s more than just aesthetics… every gorgeous shade of metal and earth with subtle mossy greens and sky blues thrown in for measure… the darkness has depth and texture revealing the complexity behind simple… the lightness is ethereal… everywhere we can breathe a composed peace.. a perfect balance. Only the images can do justice of the incredible work of the interior architect.. bon voyage…

 A pure “Wabi-Sabi” inspirational interior design..

Wabistands for rustic simplicity, freshness or quietness, and can also be applied to both natural and human-made objects, or understated elegance… Sabiis beauty or serenity that comes with age, when the life of the object and its impermanence are evidenced in its patina and wear, or in any visible repairs. Wabi may be interpreted as the imperfect quality of any object… Sabi could be interpreted as the aspect of imperfect reliability, or limited mortality of any object.

Wabi-sabi learns us to find the most simple objects interesting, fascinating and beautiful…

Sky-High

The inspiring talent of Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt is on display inside this 6,800-square-foot penthouse atop the Greenwich Hotel—owned by Robert De Niro, Ira Drukier, and other partners—in Tribeca, New York City. Vervoordt’s signature palette of earthy tones, refined taste, and flair for assembling a mélange of antiques and art make the recently opened suite one of the most desirable properties in town. Problem is: you’ll never want to check out.

Beautiful finds at Alexandra Siebelink

Following my blog for a while, you will have noticed that I posted earlier about Alexandra Siebelink , who is a Holland based interior designer. Alexandra’s work is featured in a lot of European magazines and publications, as in one of my favorite and must-have books, titled Quiet Living, Unique Country Interiors by Piet Swimberghe-photography Jan Verlinde. This book counts numerous interiors with a rural touch.

I have always admired Alexandra’s design work. Alexandra loves to work with natural materials as natural stone, oak wood and lime paint, which all age beautifully. And she always knows how to choose and where to place the appropriate furniture, decorative items and objets d’art.

Here you can see some pictures of her work.

She is keen on space and light and loves to use a subdued color palette.
