Inspiring Interior

Restoring a historic building requires a lot of thoughtful consideration, a well trained eye and a talent for creating a modern space while still respecting the building’s history and bones.  Today’s Inspiring Interior is a historic building located in Ghent, Belgium that was carefully restored in 2013 by Hans Verstuyft Architects.  This stunning 19th building has been transformed into a spacious and modern home with stong historic details.  The contrast of the timber flooring and minimalist esthetic against the high ornately carved ceiling is memorable, unique and breathtaking.  Hans Verstuyft Architects have done an incredible job on this project and I look forward to seeing what other projects they develop in the future. Here are some of my favourite shots from the Ghent project:

Judging from the amount of Inspiring Interiors blog posts that I have done on Swedish designs lately, it would be safe to say that I have a deep love for Swedish interiors. Today’s post is no exception.

Located in Stockholm, this stylish one bedroom flat is a minimalist interior designer’s dream.  The wood furniture highlights the beauty of the herringbone wood floor and the bright white kitchen is chic yet unfussy.  The dining nook is an ideal spot to host friends while the little balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy the weather.  Overall, what this apartment lacks in size more then makes up for it in design.

Normally, when I hear the words “Italian villa” I think of a rustic and charming home, but today’s Inspiring Interior challenges that vision in the best way possible.  Located in the Tuscan country between Florence and Arezzo, this villa is breathtaking in its simplicity. Designed by Rachele Biancalani Studio with Matteo Bonechi technician, this villa defies traditional ideas of what a villa is supposed to look like and delivers a simple and sophisticated home. Exposed beams and large arched windows perfectly compliment the warm natural tones of the home along with the clean white accents.  I love it!  Here are some of my favourite pics of this spectacular home:

Today’s Inspiring Interior is a design dream.  Designed by the architecture and interior design firm Conran + Partners, this London home is a perfect lesson in timeless chic.  The muted colour palette compliments the brightly coloured furniture that has been strategically placed around the home.  I especially love the grey stone table and gorgeous green chairs in the kitchen.

If this was my home I would make a few minor changes with the artwork and some of the lighting but overall I really love the design of this home.  It is elegant and timeless contemporary design at its finest.

Inspiring Interior

When I first saw pictures of today’s Inspiring Interior I was speechless.  It checked off all of the boxes of things that I love in interiors.  Lots of natural light? ✔️ Raw textures? ✔️ Minimalist and sophisticated? ✔️

IMG_6786IMG_6788Located in Antwerp Belgium, this renovated listed home was originally built in the 1800’s.  The designer Nicolas Schuybroek and his team were given the task of turning  this home into a modern oasis and they did a phenomenal job! Raw textures such as wood beams, marble and chevron floors perfectly compliment and balance the mid century furniture throughout the home.  IMG_6787IMG_6785Keeping things simple yet sophisticated, Mr. Schuybroek and his team successfully created a light filled and timeless home from a space that had previously been dark, dreary and dated.  Love it! I will be keeping pictures of this home on my vision board for years to come!IMG_6791IMG_6784
