Dear readers, those among you who have read my previous blogpost, do know that since a few weeks I am working on the redo of a client’s home. As all paint work is finished, last week I started redecorating. If you missed my earlier blogposts about this home redo, please click here and here.
Yesterday, I spent the entire day working on the decoration and tried to combine new decorative items with accessories present in this home. As the home owners collected beautiful furniture over the past years, there was no need to replace furnishings, only a few seats need to be reupholstered.
You doesn’t always need to look for expensive items to create a certain atmosphere. Sometimes bringing in a pop of colour, adding a simple touch, will do to give the room just that little bit more.
I absolutely love the colour of the red berries in combination with the colour shade of the wall painting in the breakfast room.
On the existing console table in the breakfast room an alabaster grape together with a pair of terracotta Khmer objects used as tea light candle holders, found at the shop of Brigitte Garnier. The lamp is refreshed with a new green tinted shade, reflecting the colours of the painting.
In my previous post I already mentioned that my friend Brigitte Garnier of Garnier Antiques assisted me with the decoration. We carefully sorted out some beautiful decorative items Brigitte brought from her antiques shop. I also asked her for advice concerning the new curtains to hang in the kitchen. We will definitely choose for a gorgeous Italian linen fabric.
Brigitte is presenting ceramic plates to hang on one of the kitchen walls.
Combination of green and blue in the orangery’s cabinet. Chinese vases, a pair of 18th century Makkum ceramic plates and a set of blue and white 18th century Tournai ceramic dinner plates.
The orangery ready to bring in the Christmas tree.
To be continued…
