Habitania photoshoot

My dearest readers, in my blogpost of last weekend I told you that I was preparing a photoshoot for an interior design magazine.

The photoshoot for the prestigious Spanish magazine HABITANIA took place this week!

Cover Cover of one of the previous issues of Habitania

 

A few months ago I was contacted by Gaby Conde, stylist and contributor to the magazine Habitania.

I was thrilled to hear that she would love to do a photoshoot of my home!

As they had to come to Belgium, she even asked me if maybe there was another home, that I would love to see in the magazine!

As I am almost finished with the interior decoration of my sister’s home, I called my sister to ask her permission to take pictures of her home. And she agreed!!

On Tuesday Gaby and her team of photographers Montse Garriga and Eric Pamies arrived at our home to take pictures and the day after we all headed to Bruges for the photoshoot of my sister’s home.

A couple of busy days as you might imagine!!!

I thought to share with you today a sneek peek of these photoshoot days and took a few pictures myself. The pictures are of course not of equal quality as those taken by the photographers for the magazine Habitania.

I am so looking forward to the upcoming article that probably will be published within a couple of months. I will let you know!

I would love to thank the Habitania team for these wonderful days! It was such a pleasure to work with these lovely people!

And of course a huge thank you to my sister for allowing us to do the photoshoot.

A wonderful weekend to you all!

I will try to relax this weekend and to go riding Mango, because I so missed her this week!

  1. Wow Greet, both you and your sister have such fantastic homes, so beautiful. I love the huge area rug in your dining room, I am looking for something similar for my bedroom, can you share when you found it? Also, I spy Quiet Living and Country Chic books stacked on your kitchen table, I have the two books stacked on an oak wine tasting table in my living room! Too many similarities it's uncanny. The lantern in your sisters powder room is so pretty, so many beautiful things to comment on, well done on being published. Is the magazine available here in Belgium do you know? I'd love to have a copy when it is published. Finally, what a beautiful photograph of you and your sister, you are so alike. Have a wonderful weekend Greet.

    Hugs Angela x

  3. Oh, my god! I find no words to describe all this beauty! Your sister house looks great and especially the staircase and the orangery. I love the two paintings along the staircase. The pictures in your house are also very nice and they was taken in an original way. This is a pleasure for the eyes and you make my day my dear!!!!

    Have a beautiful weekend!

  9. Greet-

  10. Let me know when it is published! Just divine. How beautiful both you + your sister are. Thank you xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

  11. Two beautiful, elegant, understated homes. I am always so impressed that you can do a home with materials, objects and details that are "Old", yet they have a very modern esthetic - if that makes any sense at all... I hope I can find a copy of the magazine here in the US when it is published!

    Cheers,
    John

  14. What fun for you and your sister who are the perfect subjects for a gorgeous photo shoot! Both of your homes are so beautiful and welcoming...am hoping to find this magazine over here when your issue comes out so I can see all of the details although your shots do plenty of justice to these gorgeous settings.
    Now rest up and enjoy your weekend.
