Inspired Architects :: Vincent Van Duysen

Duysen is one of those designers whose spaces make me hold my breath for a moment- and it of course reminds me of my favorite hotel in the architect's home turf.  (Hotel Julien)  The Belgian architect is the go-to for Julianne Moore's own homes.  

These spaces represent my ultimate minimalism fantasies.  Those waxed & bleached wide plank oak floors, the steel frame room dividers, the absence of synthetic materials...  Walking into these spaces your blood pressure drops.  You instantly relax.  Your happiness quotient skyrockets.  You get to focus on the people around you, or the book you're reading, or the music on the playlist.
