As far as bed and breakfasts go, there’s the usual run-of-the-mill spots – converted estates and farmhouses, to name a few – and then, there’s this. Situated in a quaint town in Belgium, this stunning space was transformed into a style-filled B&B, inspired by the decades between the 50s and the 80s. Dubbed as a crossover between “a Dutch farm house with a touch of English cottage” this vintage meets industrialized space taught us a thing or two about decorating a space. Here’s what we learned:
- There is no right way to color block a wall. Proven by the exclusive palette of white and a select handful of grays.
- There’s a new way to do the gallery wall.Reinvent yours with a clustered display of prints and photographs, set in identical frames.
- It’s okay to get creative with the seating. Case in point? This architecturally structured seating arrangement that is pure artistic perfection.
- a wall-to-wall bookshelf installation isn’t complete without an eye-catching work of art. Break up the linear components of straightedge titles with vibrant wall art.
- minimalism is in. An intricately bold bathroom tile surround makes it completely acceptable to furnish a room with little else.
- Saturate the contemporary space with a varied palette of bright reds. Pairing polished concrete flooring with wooden wall panels, can instill a warming essence to an otherwise exclusively modern aesthetic.
