Good morning! How is your week going so far? I am hanging in there, though I must admit January in New England is not my favorite time of year! To escape the bleak view outside, why don’t we turn to the inspiring work of Belgian photographer Bieke Claessens, whose portfolio is filled with views of the kind of interiors that make me want to pack up and move to Europe immediately…
Ah yes, I can picture myself curled in that lavender chair by my window reading art books and listening to records before venturing down to my favorite neighborhood cafe for a small cup of strong coffee.
I love the artsy feel of blown-up family photographs, don’t you? I would love to one day do this with a photo of Bixby :) And oh my, what about those chairs? Drool, drool, drool! The wishbone chair is one of my all-time favorites, and you already know how I feel about the Eames eiffel chair.
I would love a dining room like this, one that easily transforms into a creative workspace/study during the day with plenty of room to spread out…and of course to have light washing the space from giant floor-to-ceiling windows wouldn’t hurt!
This bedroom feels a bit stark for my taste (love the Suzani bedspread though), I think it is the bare bulb-style light fixture that is not doing it for me. They seem to be all over the place now, and I’m not sure how I feel about them. As just a single bulb like this I am not too keen, but turn it into something like this I am all for it!
Oh, to wake up in the morning to a sunny little nook like this would be a dream! Our kitchen does not have room for a table, and it’s on the dark side with only small windows at the back of the house. It would be so lovely to take my morning coffee and book to a table like this, preferably with a view to a garden. Just feasting my eyes on these gorgeous rooms has helped lift my winter doldrums – I am feeling better already! Ready to start planning my family year abroad, hee hee! And what about you? Do these spaces appeal to you?
