In honor of this week’s theme–Belgian Masters–Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore interviews Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen, her “absolute favorite designer,” for Remodelista.
The site is awash in moody colors and quiet spaces, including Robert de Niro’s Tribeca penthouse by Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt, a bold-faced name in the antiques and interiors world. If you, like us, love the look of cozy minimalism, Julie uncovers 10 design ideas from the Belgian greats, Alexa completes a $15 DIY lamp project, and Megan shows us how to bring the soft elegance of Belgian linen to every room in your home.
