Belgium Notebook: Eclectic Home in Brussels

 Melanio Gomez and Chris Kangas's beautiful and welcoming home is featured in Elle Decor's March issue. What a great spot and a great story. Love it when good people end up in nice places. I definitely need to find out the color in the guest room above, gorgeous.  Congrats, Melanio!

The article starts here:
" Most of us dream about pulling up stakes and moving to another country, but Melañio Gomez and Chris Kangas woke up and actually did it: They traded Manhattan for Brussels. The story began eight years ago when, while vacationing in Tuscany, the couple discovered a shared desire to one day live in Europe. Soon after their return to New York, they began to toss around the idea in earnest. Six months later, Kangas was felicitously offered a position with MasterCard International in the Belgian capital, and Gomez left his job as the wunderkind home editor at Martha Stewart Living."
