Belgian inspired design in a Houston Home


Not so long ago I came across the beautiful website of the talented interior designer Katrin Cargill. She works out of London and collaborates closely with Carol Glasser Interiors in Houston.

Carol and Katrin have worked together for many years.

I especially loved the pictures of a Houston Town House interior, designed by Carol Glasser. The design is definitely Belgian inspired.


In this first picture of the dining room I immediately recognized the slipcovered folding chairs by Axel Vervoordt.

And notice the oak table top and (propably) Belgian linen draperies.
