A deep cleansing breath of warm, minimal, European inspired, peaceful, zen-lovely beauty from understated interiors awaits. Modern Belgian Design Elements in a Stunning Minimal, Zen, Organic Home is inspiration from a Houston new build on the market a couple of years ago. Doesn’t it appear to be established and old!?! Maximalists will ask BUT WHERE’S THE ART AND STUFF while dreamers may fill in all of the white space with their imaginations.

This exquisite new construction with Old World style home is 3,056 square feet and was built in 2015.
Inspired by a Belgian Modern aesthetic, there is so much interior design inspiration and architectural brilliance to celebrate!
Aren’t the exterior and surrounding gardens charming?
Modern Belgian House Tour: Entry
Inside the front door, the style feels MCM and understated. Notice the very simple staircase details and clean lines.
Rustic design elements and elegant architecture as well as zen-like interiors to encourage timeless tranquility.
Modern Belgian Design Inspiration: Living Room
I love the fireplace with its modernized look yet nod to Old World style. The lighting is minimal and modern, and even the window treatments are barely there.
Notice how the trim is painted white in the family room area and stained in an adjacent room open to it.
Dining Room With Modern Belgian Style
Beautifully finished accents and fixtures, meticulously crafted moldings and window casings, and breathtaking wide plank oiled walnut and basalt stone flooring work harmoniously together.
I’m loving the interior transom window over the doors to the kitchen…there’s separation with French doors, yet it feels open and airy thanks to all the glass and light.
With less ornamentation and embellishment, things like wood grain and a chair’s silhouette are elevated and magnified.

Modern Belgian Style Kitchen
Custom oil rubbed oak cabinets, Venetian plaster walls, and modern lighting contribute to the natural beauty and uncommon warmth of the interiors. Isn’t it a nice touch to have a counter stool area on the working side of the peninsula?
An abundance of intelligently placed windows and oiled Mahogany French doors grace this home and bathe it in precious natural light.
Floating shelves stretch across windows, and the effect is so light and fresh!
The range hood is another kitchen design feature where an absence of ornamentation (no trim or metal strapping or shiplap in sight) contributes a modern aesthetic.
Belgian House Tour: Sunroom
Don’t you love how this sun room is distinguished with the wood ceiling?
Calming, peaceful, and charming garden views connect the lucky owners with lush landscaped outdoor rooms.
