A wood paneled farmhouse.

The owners of a renovated farmhouse asked me to make a design for the woodpaneling at the sitting area and the dining room.

The woodpaneling is made by my company Lefèvre Interiors.

A few things to know

First of all I want to thank my Belgian friend Brigitte from Brigitte Garnier’s Lifestyle blog for the Kreativ blogger award I received from her. She asked me to tell 7 things about myself. In earlier posts I already wrote about myself so I like to refer to these posts here and here.

Thank you so much Brigitte!

A few days ago my friend Brooke from Velvet and Linen, did an amazing post! She told about a client’s room design she did together with her husband Steve!  Well, I was so impressed  that I wanted to mention this here and to advise you to go to see her post! I know that a lot of you have seen it already but maybe you should go see it for a second time! I LOOVVEE Brooke’s design of this room!!!

6a00e554d7b827883301310f25975c970c-500wi I assume that everything started with this beautiful Swedish cabinet Brooke found. So she begged her clients to buy it!

Isn’t it a gorgeous piece of furniture?



So Brooke’s husband Steve started to make a drawing of the room! Do you notice the Swedish Cabinet on the right of the chimney ?!


And here the cabinet is finally brought into the room!


6a00e554d7b82788330120a8beb0c1970b-500wi  I might think that Brooke’s clients are proud now with this room and that they really are happy to have followed Brooke’s advice to buy the cabinet!

If you want to see more about this room or if you want to see it for a second time, go to visit Brooke’s post here.

Congratulations Brooke and Steve! I hope to work together with you on a room’s design once!
