Weekly Wrap-Up: Flemish Flair

Our happy place is at the intersection of beautiful design and practical functionality—so we were very, very happy when our sister sites indulged in Flemish design this week. Here are some highlights from their deep dive.

Valentin Loellmann Studio Riverside House Maastricht
Above: Designer Valentin Loellmann transformed a decrepit former stable house (complete with missing roof) into a wonderfully quirky, hand-built home. We particularly admired this corner ledge, a spot to hold glasses, above the sink in his kitchen.

  • The copper countertop with an integrated dish drainer in Remodelista’s Kitchen of the Week also gave us pause. It’s stunning—and smart, given the space constraints. See Kitchen of the Week: deVol’s Urban Rustic Kitchen Gets a Glamorous Update.
  • Meredith alerted us to a new line of elevated everyday products (think brass utensil holders, knife blocks, and waste bins). See Elegant Household Objects from Belgian Designer Marc Merckx.
  • Julie shared her current Object of Desire: deceptively simple oak vessels from Belgium design star Michaël Verheyden.
  • Over on Gardenista, Michelle shared hers: a weatherproof teak stepladder for storing and displaying plants. See Object of Desire: Folding Plant Shelves.
  • If you enjoy a good task list, check out 10 Things to Do in the Garden in June, Michelle’s must-dos to prepare for late-summer, flower-wilting heat.
