Outside cold – Inside warmth

“King Winter” is ruling over Belgium at this moment! This weekend he treated us again with lots of snow! I know, I know,.. a lot of traffic misery… but on the other hand, gorgeous picturesque scenery!

We were fortunate to be at home this weekend and enjoyed winter time mostly from inside the house.

We tried to hang some Christmas decoration around the house, but we didn’t atteint that far.

Yesterday afternoon we went Christmas “snow” shopping. In Belgium, this time of the year, shops are open on Sundays.

I want to share with you some pictures I took this weekend from inside our home.

Here on below you can see the Christmas wreaths we hung at the balcony fence and at the entrance gate.

The wreaths are covered with snow! You can hardly see them.

Last week I decorated inside the house.

Here you can see the Christmas decoration in our orangerie.

To warm you up (especially to my readers who live in countries where it is very cold and where it is snowing), I treat you with some pictures of interiors with a warm color palette.
