Can you believe it!? I am excited to let you know that Belgian Pearls is featured in the latest issue of 2 US Magazines!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Kelly Roberson, who is a writer, editor and project manager based in Des Mones, Iowa, with experience on national and regional publications. She has worked for a variety of magazines, newspapers and books, including ‘Better Homes & Gardens’, ‘Kitchen Makeovers’, ‘Kitchen and Bath Ideas’, ‘Country Gardens’, ‘Country Home’, ‘At Home with Century 21’, ‘Lighting’, ‘the des Moines Register’ and ‘Green Clean’. More to discover on Kelly’s website www.kellyroberson.com.
As freelance writer, working on a story for the Magazine Renovation Style, about limed wood, she came across my blog and emailed me to ask if I could do an email interview on that subject. Of course!!! I was thrilled to do that!!
A few weeks later, my blog is mentionned in a wonderful article Kelly wrote in the winter 2010 issue of the Magazine RENOVATION STYLE. The article is titled “RUSTIC WOOD”.
Even the picture used in the article is from the portfolio of my company LEFEVRE INTERIORS.
So here it is!
Cover of the Magazine Renovation Style, issue Winter 2010.
The article, titled Rustic Wood.

A few weeks later, an assistant of the Magazine AT HOME with Century 21 emailed me and said that she was interested in the interview Kelly did. Kelly had told her that it could fit in a story for At Home with Century 21!
And yes the same lovely Kelly arranged that my blog Belgian Pearls and me where featured also in this magazine!!
It is a very interesting article about Belgian style!! It is titled “ BELGIAN BLISS”.
Here it is.

A thousand thanks to you Kelly!!!

I am huge fun of your blog, you have such an elegance, and unique style that is very captivating… CONGRATULATIONS in your suceess.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO GIVES US MORE BELGIM INSPIRATIONS…
Oh Greet, wat ben ik blij !
Jij in een usa magazine,
de kroon op al die mooie realisatie's !
Geniet ervan !
What a wonderful honor!
I love to follow your blog, and you are such a sweet blogger.
happy for you! wonderful work, Greet!
Wow, Honey congratulations to you!! How exciting and of course you and your beautiful blog both deserve it! The title Belgian Bliss is soo appropriate!
Oh my gosh Greet that is so fabulous!!! I am so happy for you and for Belgian Pearl!!! I will have to go out and get copies of these and the next time we visit our family in Belgium I will have to get your autograph!!! 🙂
It is always exciting to be recognized for your talent. Well deserved Greet and more to come for sure!
Congratulations greet! You are the official Queen of Belgian design. Look forward to reading the 2 articles……..2! XO
Very exciting! Congratulations, Greet. I am not surprised at all to learn you are being featured in U.S. magazines. It is about time they discovered you and your blog!
I saw the Renovation Style article this afternoon! I'll go hunt down the other articles also.
Congratulations on the many, well-deserved honours for you this past week! I bet your family won't let your head swell too much! They have a way of doing that. 🙂
Congratulations Greet! You have become the spokesperson for Belgian style. I'm sure there's a lot more press to come!
A huge Congratulations is due you, my dear Greet! I don't think we get either one of those magazines in Canada, but I am going to go looking on Monday.
Your interview on SRT was perfectly understandable, I enjoyed hearing it so much. Your English is beautiful, my friend, not to worry.
And if you ever make it to Canada, you must come to our city and visit me! You are officially invited. I feel so honored that my apron is in your beautiful kitchen, I would feel even happier about it if I could have found a fabric that complimented it. But there is an abysmal lack of great fabrics in our area, that is all I can say.
I will look at the PDF file when I have the time, I am off to bed now.
Love and hugs, Cindy
Congratualations isn't it all fun….. you may be working in the good ole' USA yet!
Congratulations! This is great. Americans need to see what you do along with your wonderful style. My photographer daughter in Ft. Worth, TX, is redecorating her older, new home and I gave her information about your blog. I wish she would do her living room Belgian style. I'll tell her about the magazine articles! P. S. I am from Texas but live in Holland. xo Jenny

Oh Greet! How exciting and well-deserved! A huge congratulations. I can't wait to read every word. I'll have to come back later and I certainly will. You won't believe it, but I'm decorating my home for Christmas today. I have a big open house scheduled soon and I just have to get this all done when I can. I'll just add in all the "Fresh" things after Thanksgiving. I just had to take a break and this was a real treat!
