I'm always drawn to pieces that are white or neutral. After all, that IS the Belgian style of decorating. I love mirrors, lamps, industrial furniture and architectural artifacts and seek them out when I'm on antique hunting excursions in Belgium. I love Antwerp for inspiration but bargains are few and far between in the big cities. The small fairs and rommel markets are where the fabulous finds are to be found. Just make sure you bring your flashlight and begin around 3:00 am.

Castle in Holland (wedding venue)

While antique hunting in Holland, we happened upon this castle that was the site of a wedding. The "red room" was the location for the nuptials and the photo at the bottom shows the courtyard where the reception was being held.

White x White mercury glass lamp

This is one of my (favorite!) White x White lamps we'll be introducing at the Atlanta market in January. Mercury glass + classic black linen shade + industrial detail = chic!

Fall decorating.......

Fall has finally arrived and with the cool temps of course comes fall decorating! To add a little color to the entry way of our home I added a basket with sunflowers tucked inside. The basket is part of the White x White line available at Gallery Classic.

The lanterns filled with gourds and mini pumpkins add a pop of color to the entry way and beckon you to come inside...friends are always welcome!
