As I always try to post as much as possible about Belgian architecture and interior design, today I would love to introduce you to the Belgian based architecture and interior design company ROOD3, founded by architect Frederique Glorieux and his partner Sophie.
When I discovered this project on the brand new website of ROOD3, I knew I had to share it with you !
When the owners bought the house it consisted of several small and separate spaces. New prospects were opened as the architect transformed the house in spacious, airy and bright rooms by uniting areas and breaking down some walls.
The rooms were immersed in white, to create a sense of space. All walls and ceilings were painted in white. And even almost all rooms have white floors, helping to give the illusion of larger spaces.
The architect succeeded in creating a simple, clean-lined and inviting interior with a little bit of glamour without sacrificing comfort.
The variety of found objects, in both ground and upper floor rooms, adds an eclectic atmosphere to the home, creating a charming as well as an inspiring place to live.

Variety of found objects and vintage furniture : chairs, lamps, tables, sculptures , works of art.
White walls are the perfect and clean backdrop for art.
Choosing for a white, monochromatic palette allows to mix in lots of texture.

In the kitchen the architect combined a bright white with a warm timber.
