Bentley has style

Bentley, our cocker mutt, is developing his own style. Today he prefers lounging in the linen zebra print chair with the Belgian linen down-filled pillow. Tomorrow - who knows?

We stumbled upon this deserted farmhouse on one of our recent trips to Belgium. There was no evidence that anyone had lived there in the recent past - oh how I wish those walls could talk. My husband, aka "The Chicken", watched me explore the property from our rented truck and I had an absolute blast!

Just arrived: White x White iron & old pine furniture

We just received our container of White x White Belgian inspired furniture today. All pieces are made from iron and old pine with a wonderful patina. Some pieces have plank tops and some have beautiful parquet tops. When I was in Antwerp last summer I saw some of these pieces in antique shops and, although not antique, they work well with antiques and keep them fresh. I love them so much I'll be taking some home with me!

An interesting vignette in an antique shop in Antwerp. Quite an eclectic collection; love the rustic feel.
I don't know what this piece was in an earlier life, but it's fabulous in this one. Great architectural style and the color is yummy!
