Evelyn Moreels knows how to shape every project into a beautiful result and to create a wonderfully warm, homely atmosphere. Just think of the cosy home office we wrote about earlier. This time, she takes us to a model home in Ghent where unwinding is the main activity.
Evelyn Moreels and her team reflect their expertise and experience in every project. The trust of the customer is their main concern and always forms the most important foundation of a project. With the greatest precision and highest quality standards in terms of production selection and in a professional manner, this approach always translates into a customised proposal. Her projects can be recognised by their use of soft colours and textures, natural materials and rich fabrics. According to Evelyn Moreels, the mission is only accomplished when the result is 'picture perfect' and the client feels at home.
Her designs excel in their homely ambience.
For the Model Home project in the Ghent city centre, Evelyn Moreels was inspired by the stately neoclassical façade. Behind it lies a serene oasis of soft tones, subtle textures and high-end finishes such as the selected natural stone from Potier Stone, furniture from Classo and customised work from Veldeman. We find the heart of the three-storey house on the ground floor which offers a beautiful view of the expansive Koning Albert Park. Together with architect Pascal Bilquin, the team of Evelyn Moreels chose to renovate the kitchen, which at first glance looked functional but lacked potential, with respect for the original architecture but also with room for experimenting. The promising dining area shows a well-considered mix of design and art. For example, the organic table was supplemented with both design classics and contemporary custom-made art by, among others, young and new talent Ellen Van Hove. In addition, the kitchen island was finished with bronze accents and a one-piece Bianco Lasa worktop which gives you the feeling of being in a chic Parisian hotel. In harmony with the detailed cabinet wall, the island is the eye-catcher of the room. Other subtle and refined lighting elements complete the picture.
On top of that, the house has a gem of a quiet and discreet city garden, what more could you want in this time of lockdowns? This garden lures you into peace and quiet where the exclusive outdoor furniture of 't Huis van Oordeghem was given a well-deserved place. Evelyn Moreels and her team, with the help of their loyal partners, gave this terraced house with its 19th-century soul a beating heart again. Photography by Cafeine
