Rustic Decor: My Belgian Style Living Room

Sharing glimpses of our own home is not my favorite thing to do. It’s soooo not on par with the brilliant work I spotlight regularly. But since there is as much interest in my personal projects as anything else, today, let’s look at Rustic Decor: My Belgian Style Living Room. No “fall refresh” yet. No “look at this new thing or that improved corner.” It’s just a peaceful, spare, relaxed, and un-decorated soulful-and-slightly-monastic space with lots of Belgian linen and rustic decor pieces we have collected over the years.

Welcome, friends.

Rustic Decor: My Belgian Style Living Room. Hello Lovely Studio. We renovated this home top to bottom DIY style. Interior design elements include: Belgian linen upholstered furniture, white oak flooring, European stone fireplace surround with black granite, arched windows, oak sideboard from Belgium, charcoal gray accents, original abstract painting by me, and reclaimed wood industrial coffee table. Paint color on walls, ceiling, and woodwork is BENJAMIN MOORE White.

White Oak Hardwood Flooring

We had white oak hardwood (finished on site by an artisan) installed on the first floor of our home. We left the wood natural – no stain – just a clear, slightly matte finish on top.

Paint color on walls, ceiling, and woodwork is BENJAMIN MOORE White.

Wall & Trim Paint Color

The walls, ceiling, and trim are painted Benjamin Moore “White.” We needed a bright white with minimal undertones, and this is the base white Benjamin Moore colors begin with. When we bought the place, the walls were a dreadful light yellow which made it look dated and drew attention to the white Colonial trim and doors. This white has a gallery feel and a crispness that feels modern. The painted white woodwork now recedes for a more seamless, calm overall look.

Belgian Style Upholstered Furniture

Our living room is large and has 25′ ceilings so the Belgian linen upholstered pieces from our prior home worked perfectly. A Belgian sloped arm sofa, chaise, arm chair, and swiveling Copenhagen chair are from RH (the color of the Belgian linen is “Sand.”)

These pieces with their nubby texture have stood up to years of abuse from our sons and their many friends.

The black granite around the fireplace was an existing feature which I decided to keep. We ripped out a very plain white painted Colonial fireplace surround and added this Old World European inspired one. Rustic Decor: My Belgian Style Living Room. Hello Lovely Studio.

Rustic Decor: Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table with Industrial Style

The industrial style coffee table is also from RH, and it’s huge. It works as an ottoman, a board game table, and where my three guys are concerned, dining table for pizza. I love the bottom shelf which makes a great perch for a laptop or video game console.

A rustic living room is easy to live with since wrinkles in the linen, scratches on the wood floor, and an absence of knick knacks are part of the no-fuss look.

Modern and Minimal Concrete Lamps on Sideboard

Throw Pillows

Some of the pillows are Belgian linen (charcoal grey – vintage RH), a few are distressed canvas (also from RH, retired now), and few more are charcoal grey cotton velvet covers from Ikea (I think you can still find these).

Simple Branches in Lieu of Flowers

Since we are surrounded by mature woods, there is plentiful foliage to bring inside. A simple branch or fern fronds in a clear glass hurricane feels just right to me and is far less busy than something floral. Branches also are a better scale with the large proportions in this room.

Wall Paint Color in Prior Home Above

In our prior home, the walls were painted Benjamin Moore White Sand–a beautiful warm neutral for a tone on tone look with the Belgian linen.

Skipping Window Treatments

We love allowing natural light to flood the room, and since there are no privacy or glare issues, the windows are bare. I love the way Europeans work with natural light in their country homes and share many design sensibilities with them.

Dark Grey Accents

You might think I would be tired of the dark grey by now…nope. Every once in awhile I will change up the pillows, but I always return to this accent color. (The photo above was taken almost 10 years ago in our prior home!).

Original Abstract Paintings

I created the large ethereal painting with gold leaf above the sideboard especially for this space in 2015, and it is over 6 feet tall. I favor the drama of just a few bold and grand decor accents over a bunch of little ones.

Natural Light

There’s just nothing like working with the light, and whether we are designing a home for ourselves or considering an existing one for purchase, the quality of it is at the top of my list.

Sideboard from Belgium

We initially bought this old sideboard from Belgium when we began building our prior home. It was a piece designated for our large French country kitchen, and I imagined storing all of my serving pieces and oversized items which would only be called into service when we entertain. We even planned the electrical and lighting around it in that kitchen. However, once in place with the balance of kitchen fixtures, it would not quiet down. We didn’t live with it there for long, but we did not find the perfect home for it until we moved into our current home.

The very rustic oak piece is 9 feet long and only 14″ deep, with beautifully aged iron hardware. I store some of my vintage treasures, collections, and sentimental items inside the rugged sideboard. If you love Belgian style and want to introduce it to your own space, I highly recommend starting with a Belgian antique or vintage treasure as a starting point.

French Prayer Chairs

I have collected several old prayer chairs with rush seats from France over the years and sprinkle them all over the house. I love the rusticity of them, their age, the texture, the warmth, and the reminder they bring…to pray.

    What a beautiful, peaceful room you’ve created, Michele! The first thing that really drew my eye was the large ethereal painting with gold leaf above the sideboard that you painted. Well done! I’m curious whether you’ve tried hanging it in the horizontal orientation, as I can see it working well that way, too. Either way, it’s a really wonderful addition that completes the room. Thanks for sharing.

      I actually didn’t even try that orientation since the painting actually has meaning – it features five figures represented by vertical gold leaf. Maybe it should be wider or have accompanying vertical panels? Thanks for the food for thought – I appreciate the feedback. 🙂

      I totally understand how so many folks need and enjoy color – it can lift the mood, stimulate the appetite and imagination, and work all sorts of magic. One of the reasons white and neutrals are so lovely for me is that my mind is a very colorful, wild, and sometimes frenzied wonderland. The calmness of my interiors balances and soothes the creative energy which is so often with me. 🙂

    I love it all! I especially like the idea of simple branches in vases. Here in our upper northwest area of the US, I’d have to use faux branches for at least half the year. Kinda hard to find green ones under all our snow! Hahah!

    Lovely lovely lovely all and so restful. To my way of thinking, it is perfection.
