I really don’t know why, but lately my eyes are drawn to every picture where is shown a touch of violet.
It seems that depending on your mood, you will be attracted to a particular color. I have read somewhere that violet is stimulating the creativity.
Violet represents spirituality, harmony and peace!
Is it because of having a peaceful mood that I am attracted to every touch of violet or is it the color itself that makes me feel peaceful???
Anyway, I would love to share some of my latest favorite images. Maybe they even slip you into a peaceful mood!

I was so surprised, but oh so pleased when my friend Céline, of the French blog Céline Chollet Aquarelles, emailed me that she had a surprise for me and that I had to visit her blog to discover what the surprise was!
Céline had to make some aquarels for a new exhibition in the Musée d'Art Naïf de Noyers-sur-Serein (http://www.noyers-et-tourisme.com) and she decided to make an aquarel of my orangery because the warm color palette and the sober character of the Belgian interiors inspired her, she told on her blog.
Can you imagine how surprised I was landing at her blogpage and discovering this most beautiful aquarel of my orangery?!!
Can you believe Céline realised her aquarel using only a few pictures of my orangery of which I posted some pictures once?!
If you don’t know Céline yet, you really should visit Céline’s beautiful blog and discover her most amazing aquarels at http://wwwboitedaquarelles.blogspot.com/
So I am a lucky person to have a friend as Céline! And I do hope to meet her in person one day!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH CELINE !!! You are a wonderful friend!
Wish you all a wonderful and happy weekend!
Dream Home July 17,2011 Part 2showcases latest trends in architecture, interior design and construction techniques.
A couple of months ago, one of our clients asked for our services to help them with the renovation of their living and dining room area.
A few years ago we designed and installed their study room. They were extremely satisfied with the result and decided to contact us again for the renovation of the next part of their home.
So I already was familiar with the atmosphere of their beautiful mansion and was excited to start designing the new look of these rooms.
After changing thoughts with my client, I started to create a moadboard.
And Jan and me tried to translate all these thoughts and ideas into a plan.
As you can see it is a large sized room with heigh ceilings. Gorgeous!
In front of the fire place is situated the sitting area, on the right-hand side of the fire place is seen the dining area and at the far left of the fire place will be created a library corner.
These images our client picked out as inspirational interiors.
View A Paneling plan and situation before.In the dining area, on the far right side of the chimney, you will notice a 3 paneled wall.On each panel there will hang a contemporary work of art. Although you will not see any doorhandles, these wooden panels will hide an integrated cabinet. And the lower section is provided with 3 sliding drawers.
View C Wall opposite integrated cabinet wall (view A) and before situation. To create symmetry in the dining area, the wall opposite of the wall of view A, will be also paneled in the same way. But there are no integrated cabinets here. Again, on each of the wooden panels, a contemporary work of art.
Sitting area plan.
Because my clients definitely wanted a library cabinet and a writing desk in this area, I decided to create a small library corner at the far left side of the room.
I showed them this image of a library cabinet with integrated writing desk… and they loved it!I also recommended to paint the library cabinets in a grey-blue paint to create the illusion being in a different room, apart from the living area. So the chosen paint has to match well with the stained oak wood of the living area paneling.
The painting of the library will be applied the moment the project is installed. The painter will have to apply some color samples to obtain the most suitable combination.
In the closed cabinet parts all hi-fi and computer appliances will be hided.
I definitely want to share with you this beautiful floral motif fabric I ordered at the British company CABBAGES & ROSES ! Isn’t it amazing that blogging ables us to discover the most wonderful addresses around the world ???!!! As I discovered the beautiful Cabbages & Roses blog a few months ago.
Fabric Paris rose Cabbages & Roses

To be continued…

I am so thankful to my clients who gave me permission to share their project on my blog.
I promise to post ‘after’ pictures within a few weeks.
