Talking about sharing one hell of a tip with you, sweeties, on where to have a drink, breakfast or lunch in Bruges! Nomad. Trust me when I say it’s the newest place to be. And a true gem. Owners Bram and Margaux recently bought and renovated the whole place, after owning a bed & breakfast in South-Africa for almost 6 years. To give their two little children a place to grow up closer to family, they returned back to Belgium. Their concept is simple: No Ordinary Meals and Drinks. Connected with their move abroad to South-Africa (and back to Belgium), it is a well-chosen name, Nomad.

And you can tell they have been inspired by South-Africa. The way the interior is styled, the food on the menu… All products are eco-friendly, daily and fresh, and more importantly: organic. All their vegetables come from De Hogen Akker, the organic farm of Bram’s parents. Are you a fan of superfoods like oats and granola? Or more into a healthy lunch? Interested in having an exclusive gin & tonic? They’ve got you covered. Heck, they even serve organic spelt pasta, which I think is great!

Of course, as an interior lover I’m also always on the watch out for beautifully decorated places. So when my hubby told me about Nomad, I got curious. And when I saw the interior, my little interior loving heart jumped for joy. It is simply fabulous and chic. With white brick walls, modern hanging light bulbs, white tolix chairs and wooden floors, the place feels modern yet warm and cosy. Just perfect. I felt right at ease there. And inspired. I loved the simple touches on every table: a small vase with a little branch of rosemary. That’s an elegant way to add greenery (and wonderful scent).

When Margaux asked us if everything was allright, I told her “yes, I think it’s very pretty here”. And she laughed, because she actually meant the food. Which was also way ok! She thanked me, but I was really impressed with everything. And also the friendly service there. So, if you’re in the area, or when you’re tired of shopping all day in Bruges, you can have a stylish drink, breakfast or lunch at Nomad. Definitely one to try out in Bruges!

SFC Blog - Our Home in Full Bloom - front

Say hello to our home. In full bloom. Like I shared on Instagram a few days ago. For the ones who want to follow me, you can find me @Simplyfabulouschic.  I really love how some flowers can really add more charm to your home. It really gives it more curb appeal, don’t you think? And as you can see, I’m totally into pink flowers. I’m also very fond of my two lavender blue pots at the front door. We bought them a few years ago in the South of France, Provence. Sometimes we plant lavender in them, sometimes just flowers. We even plant (mostly yellow) flowers in them during Fall, which makes it always a happy coming home. I’m so happy my husband has the green thumbs I don’t have, otherwise our home wouldn’t look as pretty as it does now. Continue reading

Copper & Chambray

Wow, can you believe it’s almost July?? And I realised, it really is a long time ago I shared another colour palette. But this one I definitely wanted to show you. The chambray blue is totally trending right now as a colour for summer. And I have been spotting it everywhere lately. Obviously, because I have been obsessing over this chambray blue shirtdress. And yes, I’m allowed to buy one, because I have been so busy decluttering my whole house and the stuff I have been throwing out, feels actually relieving. There’s more room in my head to think clearer… and there’s much more room in my closet as well now! *wink* The cool New York marquee wall lighting is also something I’m crushing on, so cute! And that blue Eames chair (a replica though) is super lovely… Anyway, I thought this blue looked great with the copper-coral orange colours. Well, this colour palette says it all: I’m totally ready for summer. Aren’t you? What are your favourite colours for summer to go to?
