Colors can be magic. Chris Mestdagh, one of the most versatile Belgian designers, demonstrates this in the book Colorful Retreats, in which he shows us his favorite color palettes by means of several decorative settings. When decorating, Chris Mestdagh succeeds in creating a balanced mix of styles by means of his well-considered collections of bed-, bath- and table-linen, cushions, plaids and furniture, in which he combines antique and vintage elements. With this book, the designer proves that serenity is not limited to infinite variations of beige. Nothing of the kind. With color palettes chosen by Masterflorist Geert Pattyn.
