Venerable French interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch was called upon by the owners of this Belgian home to transform what was once a converted office building into the stunning home they enjoy today.
Starting with a 1900s home that had been converted and bastardised beyond recognition, Yovanovitch left no surface and no room untouched, and set about creating an interior that catered to the owner’s lifestyle of entertaining and family. The most dramatic room is the red kitchen with huge picture window. It is both dramatic in design as it is for the colour, which is a decidedly big step away from the tonal and soft interiors we are used to seeing from Yovanovitch. This room however is a harbinger for the entire project, as we see colour introduced in some way into every, the direction for which came from the client with the result undoubtedly Yovanovitch in its execution.
Throughout, the signature characteristics and narratives of Pierre Yovanovitch’s work is evident from the hand-worked timber, textural surfaces, sweeping lines, tonal palate and extraordinary custom furniture pieces. A true expression from a true master of design.
