Inspirational Office

Lot's of homework to get through in the next few days, so I'd post a pretty office space to get me motivated. Now if I had a workspace like this I might actually be excited to do my assignments! I love the bright floral rug and the cool art deco archway. Enjoy! xox Tiffany Leigh

Sliding doors


The use of sliding doors could be a good solution for a possible lack of space in your home and barn sliding doors add a rustic touch to your home.

Pattern mixing

Mixing patterns can be tricky

For a room to not look obnoxious, or like a rainbow barfed all over it,

 there needs to be the perfect balance....

Of what you ask???

Of goodness wrapped in pretty, I say..

but of course...

ikat plus geometric wallpaper plus vintage textiles = goodness

flowers and paisleys and polkas...Oh My

Suzanis and stripes..

Kilims and such..

Zig zags and blooms

and a zebra for good measure

Meares can mix a pattern better than the best...

coral, ikat, gold abstract....chevron...Perfection


Have a lovely Monday lovers...I will be meeting with the TAX MAN today.
apparently I have to pay them

Hope they take sea shells?

I Love This Room

The weekend is coming to a close, so to cheer us all up I thought I'd post one of my favourite rooms. You may have already seen it, (it was the June 2011 cover of Canada's Style at Home magazine), but I still can't get enough! It's the living room of the magazine's contributing design editor Christine Hanlon. I love the space for its sunny, bright and refreshing vibe. Also, the colour pallet is amazing (I want a yellow and grey wedding scheme - one day).

Doesn't that bamboo table just steal the whole show? It's jaw droppingly gorgeous and accentuates the brass on the lighting fixtures. Also, the geometric pattern on the couches is just like my blog's background! How apropro.

Here are a few similar items to achieve this look in your own space:

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and enjoyed this fresh room as much as I do!

A library project

A few months ago Natalie of Natalie Haegeman Interiors contacted us asking for help with the realization of a library project for one of her Belgian clients.

As my company Lefèvre Interiors is specialized in made-to-measure and custom-made cabinetry and paneling, we were very pleased with the opportunity to help Natalie with the project she had in mind.

Natalie started sketching the library and shared thoughts with her client.

14 Plan of the library room.


8 Current situation of the library room.


Many meetings later, my husband Jan took all the required measurements and worked out the technical plan of the library room.

13Lefèvre Interiors technical plan.


Natalie’s client absolutely preferred to use French oak for the cabinetry.

9 French oak in the Lefèvre Interiors warehouse, sorted out for this library project.

36Our warehouse


At this moment, about 3 months later, the execution of the library in the Lefevre Interiors workshop is almost finished.

Before leaving to our client’s home, we always build up the room in our workshop, which gives our craftsmen the opportunity to work out, in a comfortable way, all the details, as placing profiles, corniches,…to make sure the installation at the client’s home will progress as required.


The library built up at our workshop.


As you can see it is a very large room. More or less all cabinets are built up and we now have to place shelving and profiles.




Even the beautiful double doors to the other rooms (I haven’t pictures of them yet) are made in our company and have to be installed next week.

1 Lots of drawers to install.


3 Extending shelf.


4  Small desk drawers.

The library will move to Natalie’s client’s home within a few days!


Jan and me love working together with interior designers and architects. Sharing thoughts about design and construction is an opportunity to learn a lot from each other.


As Natalie is an interior designer, she will decorate this library room with her own collection of fabrics and furniture.

So both, Natalie and me, can’t wait to see this library project finished !

To be continued…




Don’t hesitate to contact Natalie at or to contact me at , if you would love to help us with the design of your library or interior project. We would be pleased to help you.


Here are some library images for your inspiration.
