Vincent Van Duysen Architects

I love his minimalistic, quiet style. Minimalistic, but lived-in and warm: lots of creamy whites, warm greys and deep blues. see his profile here. his website: http://www.vincentvanduysen.com/ A few pics of his own home below: On the left, Vincent Van Duysen standing before a work of art by photographer Dirk Braekman. On the right, his living-room, filled with light. His apartment is situated in Antwerpen, Belgium. enjoy! -Beautymist.

Nice MCM Wallpaper

I fell in love with this pattern, called "Muskat Wallpaper", created by MissPrint London. It has a nice Mid-Century Modern (MCM) feel. I wouldn't put it on a whole wall, but rather frame two pieces of it, like Meredith did over her bed: enjoy!-Beautymist.
