Bringing in Lizzo fabrics in a new Lefèvre Interiors project

Dear readers, first of all I want to thank all of you who have voted on my blog for the nomination of the Knack Weekend Blog Awards. I will let you know if my blog is nominated as one of the best Belgian blogs.

THANK YOU MY FRIENDS !

Over to my project now.

As I am preparing the design and luxury decoration of the living room of a Belgian apartment, I would love to introduce you to one of my favorite brands with an exquisite fabric collection, the Spanish company LIZZO.

I have always loved their collection since I was introduced to Lizzo by Patrick Ponseele Raamdecoratie, the company I appeal on to take care for the window treatment of the Lefèvre Interiors projects.

I will show you more of the fabulous Lizzo Fabric Collection at the end of this post.

First I want to tell you some more about this Lefèvre Interiors project I am working on. As the apartment has very high ceilings and having the allure of a Paris’ apartment, I decided to panel the walls of this living room.

 

Here are some of my inspirational images.

The room has a wonderful 19th century corniche moulding, So we need to keep away from it.

This is a detail of my first sketch. I am still working on it!  I do need to think carefully about the right proportions of the paneling! This is of a big importance, designing a paneled room.

When my sketches of the entire room are finished, they have to be drawned into a technical plan in our atelier in order to show them to our client.

55 A few Lefèvre Interiors oak finishes. We don’t have standard finishes, we always try to make a personal finish for every new project.

 

Whatever the choice of our client will be, to finish the oak paneling, I do have to make suggestions about the matching fabrics for the window treatment and upholstery.

 

As you can see on the ‘before’ pictures here above, the room has big windows. I would suggest to hang French bouillonnées, in the way you can see on these 2 pictures here.54French bouillonnée.

And for the window treatment I would love to use fabrics of the LIZZO collection.

What do you think about the combinations I made?  Patterned velvet fabrics for the bouillonnées and plain velvet for a bergère upholstery? Or a patterned velvet cushion in a plain upholstered sofa,…Combinatie 11. Lizzo Selena Collection  2. Lizzo Velvet Libray Natural Collection  3. Lizzo Velvet Library Intense Collection  4. Lizzo Selena Collection

 

I do prefer to use Belgian linen for the sofas and to upholster the bergères with another fabric of the Lizzo collection.

So I do hope to share with you soon the progress of this project and to post pictures of the making of the paneling in our atelier.
