How To Create Belgian Style Living Rooms
Today, my sweets we're looking at the
that is texture.
Belgian Style interiors, I think we're all agreed, are utterly gorgeous, perfectly divine....but sometimes *cough* a little on the bland side (though obvs not the heavenly feast we have on show today...).
But but BUT there's so much inspiration to be had nevertheless, which is why, when perusing these pulchritudinous (thank you, thesaurus) Belgian Style living rooms, we could be asking ourselves:
How can we get Belgian Style to work for us in our own homes?
And that's where those Belgian Style interiors that really stand out above the rest come in. These living rooms I'm sharing today play around delightfully with that often mistakenly bypassed tool:
What these images lack in pops of colour, they make up for in absolute spades by the addition of a huge range of different tactile materials.
I'm talking about the roughly carved wood, cool-under-the-feet stone flags, the gentle weave of the fabrics, the dull shine of ironwork, soft linens...yes, even twiggy branches....
All these combine to bring a visual delight that, whilst, true, it doesn't just pop out at you like a shot of fluorescent pink might, Belgian Style interiors are all the more precious for their subtlety.
Belgian Style living rooms master the art of the understated, and the key to making sure that this look keeps you on your toes aesthetically is that bombardment of a feast of different textures.
And who in their right mind would say no to a feast?!
