Playful Family

This house is in a bucolic residential neighbourhood in the historical town of Soignies, 50km south of Brussels. It is perfect for the young family who bought it: good spaces, a beautiful and generous conservatory and a good sized and well-kept garden. They proceeded to lovingly bring it to its full potential. With their passion for colour they wanted to put their strong mark on it.

The brief:

  • make the house as child-safe as possible
  • change wall colours throughout the house
  • update the kitchen without changing the furniture
  • change flooring across the ground floor
  • change gold wooden ceilings

My role:

  • produce a design for most of the spaces in the house
  • source paint
  • sourced tiled flooring
  • source furniture and lighting

The outcome:

  • A vibrant happy home
  • A child-friendly environment, complete with safety measures on the staircase , magnetic paint in the little boy’s room and blackboard paint in the living area
  • A completely transformed kitchen largely due to the use of colour
  • Light and airy ceilings due, again, to the use of colour
  • Bold combinations of blues and yellows that came together harmoniously
  • Calmer colour schemes in the resting areas upstairs.

A few words from my client

For our new house that needed decoration, Bianca was able to assist us since the beginning with the colors, furniture and other elements of decor in order for us to feel good at home. We had specific needs and tastes and she connected with our style preference and constraints. She was quickly able to suggest things that were very much on our taste, without us having to spend time and effort to find them. She was able to keep us focused and also satisfied with our choices. We went together to visit stores, we exchanged ideas (online & offline) and she even got us a good rebate thanks to her negotiation skills. We felt she took our project personally, in the best possible way. Our house will look good and feel good and this is in a good part thanks to her ideas, patience and skills. Many thanks and we strongly recommend her as a talented home decorator.
