Home Tour | Artist Isabelle de Borchgrave

Today, we're going to take a peek inside the home of Belgium artist Isabelle de Borchgrave. Textiles and pattern are her muse in the studio and also in her home. Many of her art pieces and projects revolve around recreating exquisite, life-size historical costumes and fabrics entirely out of paper. For instance, THESE extraordinary Medici era dresses. Amazing, right? Here is Isabelle in her studio:


Her home is a fascinating and colorful explosion of fabric, artifacts and art. I love her curated sense of style and her bold use of red, a favorite of mine! And check out her trompe l'oeil writing desk papered from top to bottom!  Just incredible.

I love seeing how artists live. Don't you?

I believe that piece is a Fornasetti. Nice! Isabelle is a very inspiring individual.
