my scandinavian home: The relaxed Antwerp home of a creative duo

The relaxed Antwerp home of a creative duo

Wednesday, 2 December 2015

Antwerp is known as Belgium's design capital and famous for it's thriving creative scene. Friends who've visited tell me it's also a buzzing, beautiful city with some fabulous shopping (I need to go! have you been?).  Or perhaps you're lucky enough to live there like Belgium photographer Kimberley Dhollander (Kimmy) & web / graphic designer Philippe Corthout (Phili). The creative duo live in a house in the heart of the city with magnificent high ceilings and large windows that flood the space with light. The home has been artfully decorated with a mix of retro and mid-century finds against a simple white backdrop for a lovely, relaxed vibe. Let's take a tour...

Photography: Kimmy & Phili for Inside Antwerp. Found via Seventeen Doors with thanks.

What a lovely, relaxed home, don't you think? Love the stained glass window and tiled floor in the kitchen!

Did you notice the picture frames on the garden wall too?

Get the look: this vintage school chair is similar, retro cabinet with hairpin legs, step stool (painted in blue). Atomic threshold sells a great array of mid-century furniture (including dining chairs like the ones seen in this home). outdoor table and chairs.

See Kimberley's work (including pieces available to purchase) here. And for pics and a full interview visit Inside Antwerp

More homes with a love of retro include this Australian beach-house (one of my favourites!). And definitely don't miss part I and part II of this Swedish home - so wonderful!

I'm off to London today to visit my sister who had a baby girl last week - so excited!  I can't wait to meet my niece for the first time...

Have a lovely day!
