Interior Designer Anthony Boelaert & Decovry for MeetDistrict

Tuesday, 16 May 2017 14:53:45 Europe/Berlin

When entering Ghent, there is no way not to notice the imposing Ghelamco Arena, the home of the Ghentian soccer club KAA Gent. Besides a soccer temple, the Ghelamco Arena also accommodates MeetDistrict, an upscale business hub for entrepreneurs of today. This business village – with an enviable view on the soccor field – offers fit-out workspaces, inspiring meeting rooms and a sociable atmosphere. The latter, we at Decovry can tell from our own experience as we have our offices at this fine working space as well.

Upscale Co-Working Space with Street Style

With more than 10.000 m² to play with, interior designer Anthony Boelaert was ready to take up the challenge. “MeetDistrict is pioneering in Belgium as an upscale co-working space, so the look and feel had to be perfect”, Anthony says. “We wanted to create an environment where all kinds of businesses could prosper in an atmosphere that is professional but relaxed at the same time. The interior had to be beautiful and timeless without being too cold or clean. Therefore, we added a dash of street style. The result is a beautiful mix between timeless design, made to measure, vintage and street.”

Partnering up with Decovry

For the decoration of the 1st and 5th floor, MeetDistrict and Anthony were assisted by Decovry. “With their vast product offering of more than 50.000 products, Decovry was the perfect partner to help me with the furnishing”, Anthony continues. “For instance, I was looking for a Scandinavian styled two-seater you can’t find elsewhere. Shortly after my demand, the Decovry team came up with 3 suggestions. For the all-round feel of the market place on the 5th floor, Decovry made a mood board with mood pictures and photos. This guidance was very helpful to make furnishing decisions fast and efficiently in order to create an exceptional and affordable interior design.”

Stunning Open Air Hotel

Friday, 7 April 2017 09:04:24 Europe/Berlin

How to enjoy nature to the fullest? By experiencing it day and night. Discover this outdoor hotel room in Switzerland. There are no walls, hotel lobby nor other hotel guests; only you and nature.

In the mountains of the Swiss Graubünden at a height of 1970 m above sea level, you’ll find this one-of-a-kind hotel that takes the concept of hotel experience to a whole new level. When you book this room at 250 Swiss francs (€ 233) per night, you’ll luxuriate a stunning view of the Swiss mountains without walls nor roof blocking your panorama. You won’t even find a bathroom on the premises (however, a public restroom is within a 10 minutes’ distance). Luckily enough the room comes with a butler-delivered salami sandwich and coffee in the morning. In case of poor weather conditions, it’s no surprise that the reservation can be cancelled last-minute.

The open-air hotel room is a new concept from Frank and Patrik Riklin, the twins behind Null Stern Hotels. With their “zero stars” hotel concept, they like to parody the mainstream hotel industry. Their previous hotel was located at a former nuclear bunker, in Teufen (North-East Switzerland).

For reservation (request list) mail to info@nullsternhotel.ch.

When fashion industry waste gets a new life

Friday, 24 February 2017 12:54:47 Europe/Berlin

Did you know that the materials in Rug Solid carpets had another life before ending on your floor? The Danish company Rug Solid makes rugs from upcycled materials to reduce waste coming from the fashion industry. The makers take it upon themselves to give waste a new life by transforming it into something beautiful and useful.

 

Local charm

For the production, the label has sought away from industrialized production, finding refuge in a wonderful and charming village 100 km outside New Delhi, India. Over time, Rug Solid has become part of the local village culture, where basically every adult involves himself in the production of the rugs. This way, the local charm and culture is now part of Rug Solid.

A promise made

“We want to make it easy for our customers to choose products that are environmentally friendly”, states Rug Solid. “With our global recycled standard certificate, we guarantee that we keep our promise when we say our products are sustainable.”

Stunning Leather Collection

“When the fashion industry makes shoes, bags, belts and so on, they end up with millions of leather leftovers. We transform those leftovers into rugs. All leather strips have different nuances. They are carefully selected and weaved by hand.” The result of this time-consuming handwork is a unique rug with a stunning play of nuances.

Trends 2017 Spotted by Decovry

Tuesday, 14 February 2017 18:20:12 Europe/Berlin

We love to give you an insight of what we think will be huge in 2017. These are the seven interior trends you can’t miss this year!

 

1. Terrazzo Stone

Never heard of the terrazzo stone? Time to fill this gap in your “interior trending” vocabulary. You can call this natural material the new marble. Material with this patio like pattern can be found indoor as well as outdoor. Think: table tops and lampshades, but also fruit bowls, cushions and candle holders.

2. Velvet

From fashion to interior, velvet is more than trending right now. Give your décor a warm and soft eye-catcher with a sofa or one-seater in velvet. Or take the safe way and add some velvet cushions to make your interior very 2017.

3. Animals Everywhere

Dogs, cats, sheep and reindeers. Animals are everywhere! Besides (fake) animal skins to elegantly drape on your lounge chair or to place in front of your fireplace, cute but interior design worthy animal toys are now trending. Those toys are nowadays so beautiful, you can easily display them at home. See for yourself …

4. Mirror, mirror on the wall

Mirrors are everywhere this year. We see them in various forms and colours; many times, in atypical combinations or together with other materials - wood, metal …- which elevates the item into something more special.

5. Smoked Glass

This type of glass is smoking hot! Not only do we see this dark and sophisticated material in home accessories such as wine glasses, vases and bowl, but it’s also incorporated in interior design.

6. Rotan

Rotan is going strong again. After years of neglection, this natural and decorative material is present in all kinds of interior pieces such as mirrors, chairs and lamps.

7. Fashionable Shoppers

More and more people care about the environment but still like to be fashionable. Therefore, lots of designers came up with fashionable shoppers; reusable bags with a beautiful design in often recycled materials with always one important feature: the bags must be practical!

A Warm Yet Contemporary Urban Retreat

Friday, 6 January 2017 11:47:29 Europe/Berlin

In London’s residential borough Westbourne Gardens, there is a hidden gem to be discovered. This first-floor apartment was internally refurbished by Nimtim architects, resulting in a colourful yet peaceful urban retreat.

 

“The flat itself is small but with generous ceiling heights and a strong sense of its grand past”, state Nimtim architects. “The proposal seeks to retain this sense of space and grandeur by retaining the existing ceiling heights and allowing a reading of the entire space as one. Three new and distinct elements are added to the existing space - a small and compact kitchen, a stone-clad, marble-lined bathroom and bedroom wardrobes in cherry-wood veneer.”

A Sophisticated Look

For the interior design, the architects opted for a wonderful mix of materials and colour. The warmth of the deep cherry-wood veneer blends perfectly with the luxurious marble and a hint of gold finishing wardrobes and doors. The combination gives the flat a refreshing and sophisticated look. A pied-a-terre in London to dream of…
