The Little Monastery

Hooray for Fridays! The weekend is just about to begin and my mind is turning to getaways. How about a Belgian B&B? Bricks and render and a monotone palette of greys and creams and linen and lush lawns with clipped buxus? We can take tea and relax in the summer house or explore the countryside and be back home in time for work on Monday. OK I'm daydreaming but what a lovely dream. The Little Monastery in Damme, Belgium.

Rolies + Dubois architecten

Rolies + Dubois architecten are based in Antwerp, Belgium and they make magic happen with their minimalist, modern designs. I am especially smitten with the loft in the first of this selection of photos. I would just add about 100 plants and my cat herd and call it home. And the pool house in the last few photos is simple, dark and all you really need.

Take it as "red"

You can definitely take it as read that I love this modern kitchen by Belgian architects B-Bis. The use of primary colours and plywood to delineate the modern insertions within this historic shell is fun and fresh. Not sure that I could do my makeup in the yellow bathroom though. Perhaps it's a bachelor pad?

La Micheline

It's Wednesday. Hump day. Time for a virtual getaway to the Ardennes region of Belgium, to La Micheline, an old railway station now a holiday home set amongst meadows. If the impressive renovation and rebuild using bluestone, rough hewn wood and concrete isn't enough to get your design juices running there's even an old railway line with trolleys. The gîte is the creation of architectural photographers Anne and Jean-Luc Laloux and is a sister property to La Classe which we featured here.

Getaway

Getaway, faraway. Need a virtual escape from the daily grind? Join me for a fantasy long weekend here in Belgium. We'll rent this converted carriage house. There will be lazing about and chatting, communal meals and lots of wine, quiet moments and riotous laughter. Aaahhhh! We can dream can't we. The Heerlijkheid Van Marrem Residence via Kid & Coe.
