From our home to your home : Happy New Year !!!
Hello my dear readers, I have to admit that I am not that often behind my computer these days, I try to slow down a bit and to enjoy these holidays with my family. But I really had to share this news with you!
This month the most beautiful horse in the world is been chosen in Paris at The World Championship for Arabian Horses. The winner is the Belgian stallion QR Marc, which is owned by the Belgian Paul Gheysens, of the stud Knocke Arabians.
An exceptional performance, because such beauty contests are usually dominated by horses from the Gulf region.
QR Marc has won international prizes before: last year he won an international beauty contest in Dubai. The horse now has about 700 descendants, including many who also won prizes.

Being a Belgian and a true horse lover I was very proud to hear that a Belgian horse is chosen as the most beautiful horse in the world !
Congratulations to QR Marc and Mr Paul Gheysens of Knocke Arabians!
I do hope you all enjoy these last days of the year!

A few weeks ago I discovered the website of ANTA, a Scottish company involved in interior design and architecture. Suppliers of collections of carpets and rugs, throws, blankets and woven fabrics, stoneware, lighting, furniture,…
Everything from ANTA is made in Scotland. The woolen yarn used for the carpets and tweeds is sourced in the Western Isles and is woven in the Borders. The oak furniture is made in the Highlands and some of the wood is homegrown.
ANTA Stoneware was first developed when Annie Stewart began experimenting with painting tartan on ceramics 28 years ago. Since then ANTA has become synonymous with the best in contemporary Scottish design. The ceramics are made with love in our Highland factory and individually decorated by hand.
ANTA now 25 years in the same hands, is a partnership between designers Annie and Lachlan Stewart and the craftsmen and women with whom they work. (Text website ANTA)
All ANTA products can be ordered on line !
The images of the gorgeous ANTA products here, are only a few of the wide range that ANTA has to offer. Please visit the ANTA website to discover all of their products.

First of all I want to thank you for all the sweet and nice comments and emails I received about the Lefèvre Interiors new website! I was thrilled ! Thank you my dear readers! I appreciate you have taken the time to write me!
Today I want to share with you some pictures of the Christmas decoration at our home.
This year I wanted to keep it modest and simple. By the way, did you notice that, in general, Christmas decoration is much more modest than we knew it the previous years? Does financial and economical crises influence the way of decorating our home for Christmas?
Greenery and red berries hanging next to the cupper pans and a bunch of mistletoe at the windows. Inspiration to decorate the kitchen I found at Mona’s blog Providence Ltd Interior Design here. Thank you Mona! Love your Christmas home decoration a lot!
The hurricane on the mantel of our living room, I brought home when we visited Walda Pairon (see my post of Walda here).
Even at the outside of the house I have chosen for a very sober decoration.
I do hope you enjoyed our Christmas decoration!
All pictures by me.
