at home in brussels.


this is the amazing home of interior designer Muriel Bardinet in the district of Ixelles in brussels, the Belgian capital, featured in milk magazine this month.. stunning, no? a former orphanage(!) and once a Japanese restaurant this space has been magically transformed from its former roots. inspired by Moroccan design, for its simplicity and charm, but also infused with Scandinavian style and attention to every detail, the home is a stunning resurrection of what it once was with some really interesting and contrasting combinations. those pretty paper lanterns and the starry ceiling! i really seem to be into dreamy and dramatic ceilings this week.

  1. Although, this is not exactly my kind of style, I absolutely LOVE the features in this house, such as the angel wings, the ball lamps and the monkey :) x Femke

    This post is lovely beyond words. My favorite photo is the second from bottom. Unlike an over the top stylized room, this one looks as if it were built piece by piece, over years.
