This 19th centruy building near Brussels, Belgium, used to be a mirror factory. It was transformed into a beautiful guest house by owner Philippe ten years ago. With a lot of imagination and energy Philippe managed to turn the old factory into a warm and welcoming place.

In the large dining room, which also serves as the kitchen, a huge collection of earthenware and glassware is being displayed on shelves rising to the ceiling.

In his studio Philippe has built a huge library taking up the entire length of a wall.

The gorgeous bath tub is a remake of a 1900 model.

The guest room called “La Vie d’Artiste” (image above) lives up to its name. A large canvas painting of three large cushions resting on a pillow hangs on the wall and serves as a headboard. More information about this charming guest house can be found on on the website of Chambres en Ville.
