Bruxelles Antiques: a home/ boutique in France















You must see this gorgeous farmhouse/ live-in boutique in the North of France! One family turned this large sprawling home in Ennevelin into a place to showcase and sell  some of the things they love. Filled with furniture, industrial objects and old pieces, they combined their passion for living in the country with selling antiques.  To me, this is the Belgian look done really well- not a touch of over-the-top or fake about the look.  I really love the stonework inside, especially the limestone mantel...and that kitchen! That brick vaulted ceiling is so unique. (This article with photos is from Cote Ouest some years ago, and the lower 7 photos are from the Bruxelles Antiques website.)
