Geoffroy Van Hulle

My Aunt can be hilarious sometimes.

We were talking the other day and she said, “What the heck is going on at Restoration Hardware?”

I told her that they were moving in a design direction that was more Belgian Modern which of course led to more questions, so Auntie here you go!

While I was aware of Axel Vervoordt’s work, it wasn’t until a friend traveled to Belgium and brought back a copy of GEOFFROY VAN HULLE’S Joys of Life that I studied up on Belgium design. Belgian Modern excitement reached a high point a few years ago, so this post is for those of you who are not as design obsessed like my hilarious aunt!

Geoffroy is a very popular interior designer in Belgium known for monotone sophisticated interiors for Belgium’s chic social set. Geoffroy’s rooms are full of comfortable furniture covered in linen or velvet and he uses lots of natural materials like wood, stone and limed woods too.

Geoffroy’s preferred color palette leans toward neutral grays, taupes, browns and off-whites with pops of unexpected colors like red and yellow for impact.
