Beautiful Brussels Apartment
My Instagram friend Julien Devergnies @_percaline_ recently posted that his apartment in Brussels, Belgium that he shares with his partner Nicolas Woit was published in The World of Interiors in July 2018. I’m not sure what I was doing then but I completely missed it. I love following Julien because we have a similar aesthetic and he has a cute Airedale Terrier named Jo. I grew up with two Airedales but ours seemed a lot less well behaved than Jo.
The apartment occupies three floors of a geometric Art Nouveau house facing a park punctuated by a large round French window in the second floor guest room. It’s filled with beautiful antiques and fabrics that Julien chose since he also runs Percaline, an interior design studio founded by Marie-Christine Dawance.
The lavender living room has since been either painted or wallpapered in a neutral pattern and sits on the first floor along with the dining room.
The sofa is upholstered in fabric from an old collection by Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten who also has an Airedale.
The dining room has “Gothik-style wallpaper”, an Arts and Crafts table, and a Belgian Neo-Gothic bookcase.
The kitchen sits in the basement level which has doors that lead out to a small garden.
Julien collects blue and white earthenware which he says limits him.
I love the floral wallpaper on the stairs.
The bathroom is also located on the basement level in the old boiler room.
The master bedroom overlooks the garden and features a bed that was inspired by the one owned by Hubert de Givenchy at Chateau de Jonchet.
The guest room faces the park and has the round window French doors and features an homage to Madeleine Castaing’s Maison de Lèves with her Rayure Fleurie fabric on the walls and bed and Carrelage Castaing carpet.
