Oke, people will start to believe i am addicted to vervoordt. But i can't help it, his castle is just unbelievable. During the day and also during the night as you can see on the pictures.
The front exterior of 's-Gravewezel.
For the guy's and girl's who don't know Axel Vervoordt, well he's one of the most admired, indeed, even revered interior decorator/designers in the world.
The staff at Vervoordt's 's-Gravewezel, lay the buffet.

The living room.
Another view of the living room (what a nice Fontana above the fireplace)
The Porcelain room. A fantastic room filled with porcelain from a ship that sunk hundred years ago full of porcelain.
The staircase leading to the first floor.
The Office.When Mr. Vervoordt bought the castle there was a pink formica bar in this room, can you believe that.
Looking into the Work room from the Office.
The fireplace in the library.
A reading room on the first floor. Sting slept already in this fantastic little room who has his own bathroom :-)
The Oriental Drawing room. That is nice minimalistic for me
The Billiard room.

A guest bedroom.

So simple but just totally perfect :-)

Guests start to fill the living room for dinner.
Dinner in full effect.

The Porcelain room during dinner. The white room full of that Ming dynasty porcelain, it's to die for.

Do i need to present him? I don't know if everybody know this guy, but frankly they should!
He's a visionairy person, i met him already in real, and he's just fascinating.
Axel is also one of my favourite's designer, Even if he don't like to be called like this.
And i think thats normal, he's much more than a designer.
Here is a link to one of his books, off course it's one that is next to my bed :-)
