There are no fights about the interior decisions in this apartment. Sebastiaan is a wise man and trusts his girlfriend's choices. A good call, since Margot has perfect taste and definitely knows what she wants.
We visit Margot and Sebastiaan on a beautiful Sunday in Zurenborg, one of the loveliest areas in Antwerp. The windows are open and warm spring-air, paired with the white noise of a flea market outside, is seeping in.
Margot grew up in this neighbourhood, she says kind of proudly. It’s almost a rarity to meet someone that’s born and raised in the city. - who also stayed
This apartment is a wonderful reflection of many influences in the couples life. The Cees Braakman for Pastoe pieces used to belong to her grandparents, the kitchen table came fro friends of the family; they found the Breuer chairs second hand and the carpet is the result of a shopping spree in the most infamous vintage area in Antwerp: ‘de Kloosterstraat’…
Every piece is well chosen and brought together by Margot, who studied interior design.
