A little Belgium in Kansas ...

When you think of Belgium, what comes to mind? Stone clad farmhouses with cedar shake roofs, jardiniere gardens with hedge rows of elm trees and crushed limestone walkways. Interiors of hardwood floors, light colors, linen, antiques, crystal, and seagrass. A little like this, right?

A Belgian dream, isn't it? Except, it's not in Belgium. In fact, it's not in Europe, or trendy California, or Veranda stationed Houston. It's the renovated antique school house of my friend Deserae, her husband and their furry family in the dusty plains of Kansas!  

Des and I really hit it off a few months ago when I emailed her about where she got a few pieces of her "old" furniture, and we've been friends ever since. Watching these rooms come together on her blog, and through email has been so much fun, and exceedingly inspiring. A collected mix of Belgian linen upholstered furniture, and fine antiques, Des has a beautiful design eye. Please enjoy this small collection of pictures of her rooms, and run over to her blog: Peeking Thru The Sunflowers and leave a comment! I know that she'll love having you!

Remember, Please take a second to pop  in over to Deserae's blog and leave her a comment letting her know what you think!
