The Streets of Brussels
We spent one and a half days two nights in Brussels. After a tight gallery going schedule in Amsterdam, both Mitch and I were content to amble about Brussels streets. Drinking beer and wine and eating fries and Greek falafel filled pita pockets.
We ended up in all sorts of grand, historic places and churches. We witnessed a muslim wedding and even came across an archeological dig on a central construction site several metres below the side walk. It looked like they were uncovering a stand of ancient tree stumps.
We walked straight off the street into the Saint – Nicolas Church, a gothic church that originated from a chapel founded during the XII century, close to the Grand-Place. Restored several times, only a few remainders of the original church are left. We were wowed by the stained glass windows, scale and grandeur of the place.
Our apartment was a perfect fit for us. I came away inspired with ideas galore and we are eager to try them out when back home. I Loved the interior colour scheme of cream doors, stark white walls and soft grey. The sophisticated colour scheme was livened up using splashes of colour, mustard yellow in the kitchen and in our bedroom a rich reddy orange feature wall.
Also when we get home I am going to have a go at making up some pot plant wall shelves like the ones in the photos below.
We left Brussels early in the morning for the central train station to catch a train to Paris, where we will spend the next four days visiting galleries and exploring the gardens and older parts of the city.
