House tour: open plan loft filled with plants and sunshine

28 Aug

Every now and then, I come across a house that makes me feel content, even just from looking at photographs of it. This open plan loft in Belgium is one of those rare finds… relaxed, personal, fresh and bathed in natural light. I just can’t imagine ever feeling miserable if I came home to an apartment like this one.

Bart Haverkamp and Pieter Croes are the lucky pair who get to live in this airy oasis – they’re garden architects and the lush greenery and skylights in their loft create a real greenhouse vibe. I’m not known for my love of houseplants, but even I’ll admit this open plan space would lose much of its magic without them.

As much as I’m trying to fight it, I’m clinging onto ways to keep nature inside as summer draws to an end. This little oasis is the perfect inspiration – there’s more to see at the always-inspiring Coffeeklatch.

    Very nice loft space. I’m always impressed with people who incorporate green plants and environmental awareness into their living space. :)

    Hi there,
    I really enjoyed this one, the pictures are great! And you have a very good point about the houseplants. They blend very well with the decorations and do not stand out that much, but if you took them away the place would lose a great deal of its lively character. I would love to see the pictures of the garden as well, must be something special if they are both garden architects.

    I love that black stove. Old school stoves in the interior, they are my weakness. I´m wondering if this one is functional..But I saw the logs under the library so I guess it is. Unless they are only for decoration..
