A Lefèvre Interiors dressing & new discoveries

I hope you all have enjoyed your weekend as we did here in Belgium. The weather gods spoiled us with some gorgeous late summer days! Up to 27°C! It was one of the warmest weekends of this year! We really aren’t used to these summer temperatures at the start of October! It abled us to face a busy new week!

Today I want to share a few pictures of a client’s dressing and some gorgeous new discoveries.

 

Dressing Lefèvre Interiors

The dressing room I designed for one of our clients in France, was installed by our company Lefèvre Interiors months ago but I hadn’t had yet the opportunity to take some pictures of it untill last week.

The room acts as a dressing and as a guestroom. The seat can be converted into a bed.

NEW DISCOVERIES

 

Hermès textiles

Hermès is expanding into the home textile world not only with silks, but also with “upholstery-ready signature patterns in cotton, cashmere, wool, and linen”.

Hermès teamed up with the Italian firm Dedar to produce these gorgeous textiles.

Expressive horse race scenes in bright colors, elephants in royal regalia, or tone-on-tone abstracted “H”s, and a seemingly hand-drawn herringbone print.

John Stefanidis fabrics

This Autumn John Stefanidis Fabrics launches a seriously chic new stripe ”Promenade”.

It is an elegant, 4 colour stripe with colours that will coordinate with and complement other designs in the John Stefanidis fabric range.

By the way, I want you to know that John Stefanidis, one of my favorite British designers, has a beautiful blog ‘The Developed Eye’, where John writes about his life, his travels, the influences behind his designs for the many houses on which he has worked and his fabric and furniture ranges.

I remember, years ago, I bought his first book, titled ‘Rooms, Design & Decoration’. To me it is still one of the most inspiring books about interior design!

Meanwhile John has written several books (to discover on his website).

    Ohh I wish I had such a lovely dressing room. With lots of storage space! And I particularly love that French chair.

    Glad you had warm weather, Greet, and hope you have a great week!

    How I crave the luxury of a dressing room. This one would suit me perfectly. I also rather like the English three-tier cake-stand. It is such a contrast to the lightness of the rest of the room.

    Greet – the dressing room is FABULOUS – everything I love – classic, tailored, exquisite details etc. And so funny – I just returned from the London Design Festival and saw many of these things. I went to the beautiful Dedar showroom and saw some of the new Hermes line – it's gorgeous!! I saw the beautiful Ochre booth at Decorex – stunning. I didn't take photos since they have a showroom in NYC. They are based in Clerkenwell where I had drinks my last night with an old British boyfriend (and then had dinner w/him and his wife, lest you think any illicit occured)!! I love John Stefanidis – that new stripe is a future classic. But I did get to meet Nicky Haslam – a long time favorite Brit as well!! It was a FABULOUS trip!! I'll be writing about it all week (started last week).

    Good morning Greet,

    Love the details in the dressing room. I'm usually not a fan of louvred doors. You convinced me otherwise by turning them into panels in the wall! The door lockset is classic, recalling another era.

    I wish the Hermes horse/jockey wall paper had been available when we specified the paper for the powder room in Manchester! It is so Hunt Club!

    Cheers,
    John

    Happy Monday, Greet!
    The dressing room is fabulous. It has your elegant signature all over it. Love the textiles and sleek hardware. I'm off to visit John Stefanidis' blog.
    Thank you for sharing such loveliness, and on a Monday.

    Oh, thank you for topping off a very long Monday absolutely perfectly, Greet. I found it ALL amazing! Your client must be thrilled–what an elegant dressing room. Simple yet luxurious–très Lefèvre! 🙂

    Sadly, I don't think that I could ever afford even a handkerchief size of the Hermes fabrics–but it is fun to dream…

    Bisous,
    Heather

    Oh Greet what a dream, I should imagine your clients are beyond delighted! What a clever use of space too in combining it with a guest bedroom. So stylish, so practical and so elegant! I shall take a look at the Hermes fabrics – love the equestrian element and those handles are just superb! Congratulations on a brilliant post Greet. Hugs from a very warm English farmhouse (heatwave here too) – Glenda xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    I like the idea of a dressing room and as a guest room in one. Very practical idea.
