It may take a lot of discipline to live the minimalist life (and in this case a lot of money) but, oh, how beautiful is the simple line, the intersection of positive and negative, boxes balanced on manicured lawns, glass walls throwing privacy to the wind. Austere luxury by AABE (Atelier d'Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners).
Welcome to the eclectic world of Bea Mombaers. This doyenne of style and dealer of delicious furniture opens her home to travellers as a bed and breakfast. I'm packing my bags and heading to Knokke-le Zoute, Belgium. I won't be moving on for quite some time. Moving in perhaps?
Like a series of stage sets or a a ramble of rooms filled with one man's dreams and treasure Rooigem House in Sint-Kruis, Belgium is the creation of antiques dealer and designer Jean-Phillipe Demeyer. The medieval manor with moat has been lovingly restored and now is home and business. The riot of colour and pattern and OTT pieces make it a sensory delight. Imagine visiting in real life. Where to look. What to touch.
