The unpretentious, yet casually elegant, lime-washed homes of the French/Belgian border towns are recalled in Élan, a collection of furnishings that captures design elements of two beautiful countries. The simplicity of Belgian interiors and the detail of French designs meet in a look that is simple, seamless and sophisticated. The palette of cool, contemporary neutral tones is restful and feminine, almost ethereal. Pieces are intentionally antiqued to give depth and texture. And what may edge on rustic to some is actually luxurious restraint. Élan downplays contrast and extraneous detail in favor of interiors that create a quiet atmosphere full of light, no matter the weather.
