Slice of Old World Heaven

In another life, I think I was a princess of a small European country from the 17th century.  I get a profound sense of longing to be in surroundings such as this. 

Maybe Pieter Porters was my brother in that life.
Pieter has created House of Porters....a guesthouse/selling house in Antwerp, Belgium.

The guesthouse encompasses three luxurious suites, named for the style therein: English, French and New York.

Fancy the items in your suite?  Any and all of it is for sale; hence the selling house.
Oh, Pieter, you have stolen this girl's heart.

The English Suite:

The French Suite:

New York Suite:

I am drawn to the English Suite.  Which one would you book?!




  1. Isn't it wonderful when things are well done?

    What a place! Thanks for the tip.

  2. Hi Jane -- you're welcome.
    (Been really thinking of you!!)

  3. Love them all but the NY suite just captivates me. Thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays!

  4. Goodness - love the NY suite. And although I'm not much of an English style person, I think a nice cup of tea and some cookies would be lovely in the first photo setting. Especially if it rained outside! Happy weekend my friend! xoxo

  5. These rooms are absolutely beautiful! I was browsing interior design blogs when I came across yours. Your take on the elegant style of these homes was very interesting. I was even more intrigued by your discussion of the English decor and how wonderful it is around this time of year. Window treatments also help dress up a home in the English style that you love; after all it is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

  6. How fun! Sleeping in a shop...a very chic shop!

  7. Gorgeous! I love a nice theme room.

    Also, be sure to friend me on Facebook!!

  8. I die for the New York suite (except the big zebra head) but I love this one x


I love to hear your thoughts!
