Desimpel did not move here by accident: his house still breathes the atmosphere of the fifteenth century, when Damme was a thriving port town. At the same time, however, he did not want to turn this into a trip down memory lane. So he infused his home with a strong dose of orientalism, the clearest example of which is the Moroccan lamps. Pablo Piatti’s wall painting in Brighton Royal Pavilion style also exudes nineteenth-century exoticism. You can really let your imagination travel (to which century or continent doesn't really matter) without shame in this interior.
Although interior architect Brigitte Garnier typically uses a warm, rural design style, this bathroom is an exceptionally sleek sculptural statement.
