    Having just returned to Antwerp from Tokyo after living there for the past 3 years, I picked up MTC and recognised your beautiful home from your blog which I have followed since you started! Well done.

    I am so happy to be back in Belgium, which we consider our home. We lived here for 8 years before moving to Tokyo and have a beautiful home in Schoten close to Axel Vervoordt's Kasteel (looking forward to visiting there very soon!) We will be moving back there mid September when our tenants move out. Looking forward to putting more Belgian style into it!

    Thanks for always posting wonderful things!

    You should have received the "Lovely Blogger" award! I love that photo of you and Jan together–that you are so elegant and yet so nice…it is just the icing on the cake!

    And congratulations on a really fantastic feature–your home looks lovelier than ever. I just want to curl up on that couch in the living room. But am I the only one that noticed that both you and Brooke have Saladino books featured in your spreads? 🙂 Great minds think alike!

    Bon weekend!

    Congratulations Greet, and so well deserved. I just can't take my eyes off of the lovely image you posted. The brick floors are fabulous. I just love them, soooo much character they add to the space. The fabulous lantern and rug and comfortable linen chair. All so wonderful and then the vista of your beautiful patio just beyond the open door. Every detail is perfection. Would love to join you in this room for a visit. Have a great weekend. I'm at the lake soaking in that last bit of Summer. XO Mona

    Greet, it's been so busy here I'm just now having time to sit down to write to you. Congratulations on your home being published! It feels so welcoming and comfortable. Being the interior architecture junkie that I am, I have to say the detailing of the oak door, jamb and paneling and your wrought iron stair rail (especially the volute) are brilliant!

    Mijn lieve Greet,

    Het is zo heerlijk je weer te zien! Uw keuzes van de foto's zijn zo mooi geregeld. AND it is my favorite style of all time my sweet friend!

    And that marvelous photo at the end, that is your home?

    I have had a wonderful summer staying home and writing. I am enjoying the woods, the whites and grays that we have chosen to embellish our living space and the very color of woods you show here are EXACTLY what I have!!!! It is so rich and warm, and calming. THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS and visit! ENJOY THE CHANGING SEASONS!!! A bientôt, Anita
