sneak peek: yves of i love deer

by Grace Bonney

i wanted to take a little time out today to post a special mid-week sneak peek from yves of i love deer in belgium. yves recently moved from the city out to the country side to find more open space and natural light that would fit his budget.

yves found an old gatekeeper’s home from the beginning of the previous century and embarked upon a series of remodels and upgrades over the past few years, removing some of the interior walls to create a more open, airy feel. during the rebuild yves kept green building practices in mind, focusing on sustainable wood and using solar panels to provide power for the home.

there are over 130 square feet of windows in the “new” home as well as a great mix of old and new scandinavian furniture. the majority of yves’ furniture came from flea markets, secondhand shops, family hand-me-downs and ikea. i think the finished look is a really lovely modern take on a country house- and would the perfect place to get away from it all after a hectic day (or year) in the city. great work, yves! click here to see more yves work online and click here to view these images full sized on flickr.
