La ferme-château Vauxhelleshof, bâtie en 1836

Farm castle built in 1836, the Belgian home of antiquarians Brigitte and Alain Garnier…

An air of worn nobility in the stark stone and lime washed, timeless entry.

A Regency canape covered in original burnished silk…

Carved sculptures of Hunting dogs overhead

Exquisite Venetian glass and crystal are the perfect ephemeral

counterweights to wood, stone, metal of Belgian interiors

Antique English sterling saupoudroirs à sucre

and mother of pearl spoons

The incredible crystal chandelier dancing above the characteristically rough and simple

Belgian style. Greet of Belgian Pearls introduced me to the Garniers last summer.
