After several years working as a tv editor, mainly focused on interior design and lifestyle programs, Marie Masureel decided to start courses in interior design, to put her knowledge and her year-long passion for interiors into practice.
Since 2008 Marie is decorating homes with a relentless enthusiasm. Additonally, she also works as a stylist for several interior design magazines.
Marie welcomes her clients into her private home in Heist-op-den-Berg (Belgium) that serves as the perfect backdrop for design inspiration.
Weathered wood, lime paint, beautiful linen, unique antiques and pure accessories are characterizing her interiors.
All pictures in today’s blogpost are of the private home of Marie Masureel.
Marie’s living room with its lime painted walls, linen draperies and upholstered seats, a weathered oak built in cabinet and a timeworn coffee table top.
In other words a typical Belgian style living room.

A comfortable and inviting family room. Notice all windows dressed in Belgian linen.
As me, Marie grew up in the Belgian flax growing region, which will probably declare our preference for using linen in the homes we decorate.
Marie tells us that as a child she was always fascinated by the purple flowering flax plants. ‘Later I realized that the real beauty does not lie only in the flower but as much in the final product, the textile made from flax, the beautiful powdery linen.’ (text website Marie Masureel)

The kitchen, with its clean-lined cabinets and grayed oak farm table, determines the Belgian penchant for simplification.
These grouped candles, eye cather on the kitchen isle, bring in a pop of color into the kitchen’s neutral palette of whites, grays and browns.
Marie loves to highlight her interiors with only a few, but well chosen and pure accessories as the pottery table lamps on the kitchen counter, the chandelier above the kitchen table or the bright colored candles on the kitchen isle.
