MILIEU’s “World of Change”


I am thrilled to announce that the brand new interior design & lifestyle magazine MILIEU has arrived !!!


This new home décor magazine, that finds its way to the newsstands this month, is founded by the renowned Houston based interior designer Pamela Pierce.

In this luxurious quarterly print magazine, Pam wants to show us beautiful international houses and gardens on thick, glossy paper. And it has to be said, that indeed, all pages of the featured houses look fabulous!

What also makes MILIEU different to other interior design magazines, is, that Pamela wanted to search for designers who haven’t been published that much.


An interesting article about Pam and her new magazine MILIEU appeared in the Home & Garden section of The New Your Times, last month.

Most of you do know that I am officially assisting Pam and her team in scouting European locations and designers. See my blogpost about my contribution to MILIEU here.

Can you imagine how proud I am with the featuring of the house of our Belgian designer Walda Pairon in the first issue of this brand new American interior design magazine?!

The photoshoot was taken by my favorite Belgian photographer Claude Smekens, introduced to Pam on her first visit to Belgium in June this year.

I am sure you all will love the featuring of Walda’s beautiful countryhouse near Antwerp.

Pam invited a lot of other designers to tell their story in this first issue of MILIEU as Tom Boland, Aaron Rambo, Ernie Sulpizio and many more.

There are a lot of interesting articles published on the editorial pages of this MILIEU issue. I really enjoyed the article about designer Marie Warren sharing her nine secrets for success!

And finally I want to thank Pam for mentioning me and the photographer Claude Smekens here at this page!  Wonderful to see us, Belgians, between mostly American people, contributing to this magazine.Milieu Fall 2013Scanned page – MILIEU Fall 2013


I am currently searching for more European locations to be featured in future MILIEU issues.  Watch out, we recently found a gorgeous Belgian home to be featured in one of the next issues!

I do hope MILIEU will make its appearance on the Belgian newsstands as soon as possible. I am sure that the Belgian design enthusiasts will love the magazine!

    Hello Greet!

    I have been away and am catching up on my favorite blogs- so much to take note of on yours! Milieu, I have no doubt will be a wonderful resource for beautiful homes and images- I so love great shelter magazines and have always loved Pam Pierce's work- she is incredible. And your own contribution- so exciting!! I have lots of catching up to do- off to read more about S.Tucker's book- you always highlight what is best in design.
