Lefèvre Interiors initial design sketch of the Regency styled library.
Remember I mentionned that I really needed to visit our client to take some ‘after’ pictures!
A couple of days after posting about this project, I received an email from our client , sending me…yes indeed…’after’ pictures!!! So I realized that my client was also a reader of my blog!!!! I was very surprised and enchanted at the same time!
Mahogany library bookcases assembled at our client’s home.

Notice the British Regency period (1811-1820) elements: mahogany armchairs, double desk and especially the daybed. All this, together with the collection of antiques on the chimney and the skin of leopard on the daybed.testifies to a great classicism.
Together with Thomas Hope (read more about Thomas Hope in my previous post HERE), GEORGE SMITH was a renown designer of the English Regency period. As being an Egyptologist in his earlier career, he was of course an enthusiast for the new Egyptian style. He published his “Collection of Designs for Household Furniture and Interior Decoration" in 1808, and four years later he published a further volume, “Collection of Ornamental Design After the Manner of the Antique". George Smith was delighted by Egyptian ornaments and found it a novelty he could not resist using to the full. Later he went on to produce a further major volume which he proudly called “The Cabinet Makers and Upholsterers Guide” .
Mission accomplished,don’t you think?
I am extremely thankful to my client for taking the time to send me these gorgeous pictures!

My dear readers, first off all I want to apologize for not being able to answer all of your emails you sent me the passed days. And to my blogger colleagues, please forgive me for not reading nor commenting on your latest blogposts. I have had a couple of very busy weeks concerning my business. And as you will understand, business comes first. I promise to do the best I can to answer all your emails and to read as much as possible blogposts the coming days.
This weekend I have to prepare a photoshoot of our home for an interior design magazine (I will tell you all about it later). So I was thinking about how I would love to see the rooms in our home decorated with flowers. Fortunately I filed a lot of inspirational images. So next Monday I will be busy decorating our home with flowers.
I wish all of you a wonderful weekend by sharing a few of my favorite flower decoration images!
Of most of the images I do not know the source. Sorry for that.
