Belgian style is minimal, and streamlined, yet through it's natural textures and muted colours, has a relaxed and calm feel.
It's focus is all about bringing the raw and textural, indoors. Furniture is minimal in quantity, thoughtfully selected and oversized with layers of earthy tones.
Architectural elements include exposed beams, recycled timbers, iron and stone. These are softened by natural linens in layers of oatmeal, flax, charcoal, aubergine and soft white.
