Soothing earth tones create calm vibe in European apartment for rent

New, 1 comment

Located in Antwerp, Belgium

We may or may not be tired of the all-grey look for interiors, but when it’s done as artfully and subtly as this, it’s easy to put all criticism aside and embrace the drab. Designed by Belgian architect Vincent Van Dyusen, the Apartment at Graanmarkt 13, a mixed-use townhouse in Antwerp that also houses a restaurant, shop, and gallery, boasts a neutral color scheme that highlights its natural materials—rough-hewn, wide plank wooden floors, brick walls, beamed ceilings—without bringing them down.

In fact, the flat feels flung-open, and the concrete surfaces serve to create an airy space where relaxation is the order of the day. And though the interiors are minimally decorated, there’s just the right touch of warmth, courtesy of plush bedding, overstuffed sofas and chairs, and dramatic floor-to-ceiling curtains. Did we mention that it’s available to book for both short- and long-term stays? A closer look, and video, below.
