Buy scads of Belgian linen fabric for slipcovers, drapes and throw pillows. Simple linen drapes are a staple of the style, usually in off-white, taupe, soft brown or gray. Keep rods simple as well.
Slipcovers are another common characteristic of Belgian style. This designer has also added bergère chairs and some slightly rusty industrial items. The seascape gives the room a coastal feel; Belgian is a great way to go in a beach house.
Check out Benjamin Moore's Linen White paint (seen here). This paint color is a great way to get started on a Belgian makeover.
Incorporate vintage textiles. The window treatments here look like they are made from vintage French flour sacks. These sacks are also great for upholstery and throw pillows.
Don't limit the slipcovers to the living room. Slipcovers extend to these dining chairs, upping the Belgian quotient in this kitchen. The palette, the wood countertop and the window casements also bring in the style.
Take the inspiration outside. This house in the Belgian countryside incorporates the gray, taupe and ecru palette, with lovely details like shutters and clipped shrubs.
If you're excited to go Belgian and are looking to shop this look, two of my favorite stores are Hudson Boston and South of Market.
