‘A Family Affair’  this is how the story about a Lefèvre Interiors project featured in the latest issue of the Belgian interior design & lifestyle magazine TIJDLOOS, is titled. The story tells about how my sister and I worked together to bring the interior design and decoration of her new build home to a good end.

I do know that a lot of you, my readers, will not be able to understand the Dutch written text. I am so sorry for that! But I do know that on the basis of the pictures, you will be able to follow the story.

I told you earlier about the photoshoot at my sisters’s home here, when I posted about our Belgian photographer Claude Smekens, who took all of the pictures for this report.

Today, I love to show you a few pages of the featuring.

2 The text above tells about my sister Inge and me (yes that’s us here) growing up in a family of which father managed an interior design business and of which mother had a wonderful eye for decorating the family home.

 ‘Sense for beauty and harmony sneaks into your blood, and that is something that Inge & Greet Lefèvre prove over and over again.’, is to read here.

Further on you can read that we both have a similar taste in interior design which I confirm by telling the story about a table I discovered in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue in France a few years ago and of which I immediately knew that this was the table I wanted to bring into my sister’s home! I made a picture of the table with my cell phone and sent it to Inge. A few minutes later, the table was bought and only a few days later, the table was placed at her home.

8 All kitchen cabinetry and furniture (even the kitchen island stools) are designed by me and all made at the ateliers of Lefèvre Interiors.

Don’t you love the Swedish chairs around the breakfast table? I found them at Swedish Antiques (Antwerp).The blue linen tablecloth is made to measure by Natalie Haegeman (Brasschaat).
