Like Ampersand house (I write about it here and here), this home in Antwerp doubles as a gallery space. The first thing that one notices is the wall colour: an intense, muted grey/green. The second thing is the cobblestone floor and exposed brick. Originally built as a workshop in the 19th century, it translates beautifully into the 21st, with contemporary materials – resin floors and polished concrete elements – adding to the simple fixturing that allow the gallery’s pieces to be shown to best effect.
Much of the furniture is by Muller Van Severen, who describe their pieces as ‘sitting somewhere between art and design’. I love their simple, industrial but elegant aesthetic.

Thanks so much owl for the inspiration! I wondered about by the colors too, I came up with a close one, I don’t think I quite got the second blue, any ideas? You can see them @
thank you for the link-back, so glad you felt inspired 🙂
i think stone blue is an interesting comparison. what do you think of the similarly hued F+B oval room blue?
That’s the one room I couldn’t figure out, it has more blue. I like it. It’s got me going now to figure out the color, I think it may be an old Farrow and Ball color. I’ll check my archives tomorrow. And you’re very welcome. Beautiful site you have !
