I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Yesterday we visited the beautiful home of one of my favorite Belgian designers Walda Pairon.
I already posted about Walda here.
Two times a year, in winter and in summer time, Walda organizes open house weekends.
At this moment Walda’s private home is decorated for the Christmas season! We so enjoyed walking around and admired Walda’s gorgeous creations! She is a real artist!! Like no other she knows how to combine colors and creates the most cozy rooms with her carefully chosen and exquisite pieces of antiques.
Walda’s style is authentic and radiates a perfect harmony. Her work is widely known. She works with passion and love. Her special good taste is her secret. Color is favorite in her decor. Walda is inspired by Italy, especially by Tuscany.
Every time I visit Walda, I am inspired to redecorate my home!
Let’s go inside to make a home tour.
Entering this part of Walda’s property, you already feel the warmth and cosy atmosphere. The house is filled with candlesticks, candleholders and hurricane globes.
One of Walda’s favorite decorative items are spheres. You can see them throughout her house.
Georgeous settings all over the house.Beautiful antique pieces and decorative accessories to discover!
Walda has a preference for bringing in all shades of purple, orange and green as you will notice in the following pictures.
Walda is born with the skill of making vignettes. Her ability to group accessories, stack books, and arrange flowers is amazing.
And here is the first Christmas tree we discovered!
And the festive tablescape with a purple silk taffeta tablecloth !
And again some of Walda’s vignette creations.
Entering the conservatory or greenhouse we noticed the second Christmas tree. Decorated in white and silver.
Notice the wood storage cabinet ! And that beautiul wooden chair !
I was totally smitten by this chair with fur seat cushion.
Touches of green, orange, purple…
A group of terracotta jars on a table with a greyed and weathered tabletop.
Decorative table setting at the greenhouse.
Kitchen of the greenhouse where Walda’s husband Roger Souvereyns – who is a renown Belgian cook – prepares the most delicious meals for his guests.
Christmas decoration even in the kitchen.
We enter the main building of the property and arrive at the dining room.
Notice the antique Venetian doge chair with authentic leather upholstery.
Kitchen of the house.
The cake looked delicious!
And we discovered a third Christmas tree in the living room.
Every light bulb in the tree Walda wrapped in silk paper to create this special glow !!! Gorgeous ! Can you imagine how much time this took?
If you live nearby or in case you visit Belgium the coming days, you still have the chance to admire Walda’s work next weekend (November 30 – December 1 & 2).
You shouldn’t miss it !
