Interior design duo, Bart van Bekhoven and Ellen Merkx have converted the barn into a stunning home and workspace. The couple, who work and live there with their two dogs, Gijs and Jane, took on the extensive renovation in 2008, preserving original features yet integrating contemporary elements into the architecture. As a bespoke furniture maker, Bart’s ethos is all about texture and pure, organic materials. Wood is showcased throughout which, together with leather and steel, are the core of his designs. By introducing tactile luxurious finishes to the interior, including creased linens and rich velvets, Ellen pulls the whole look together. The result is a rustic industrial aesthetic with a distinctly elegant feel. Timeless, functional living is Bart’s mantra. And, with a welcoming atmosphere of freshly-baked bread and heartwarming fires, this home is not just about inspiring interiors or beautifully-crafted furniture, but a complete lifestyle experience.
