Greet Lefevre with her husband Jan (l) and brother Stefaan (r)
The week, we chatted with the lovely Greet LeFevre of the Begian Pearls blog. Greet is an accomplished interior designer whose family business LeFevre Interiors has been in the custom cabinet making business in Belgium since the 1890's. The business is now run by Greet, her husband Jan and brother Stefaan. We chatted with Greet about Belgian design and its influences, her views on the current popularity of Belgian style here in the States and her blog Belgian Pearls.
I really want to thank you for the opportunity to have had this interview with you!! I do feel honored! I hope that your listeners will understand everything I tried to explain because my English is not that super!!
Thank you a thousand times girls!

So lovely to hear her voice. It's so great that her family business is thriving. xo Lidy
Good work girls!
It was wonderful to listen to the history of your family business. How amazing that it has been handed over from generation to generation!
I am also in awe of the fact that you have no formal training and that you as a young girl absorbed your amazing skills through experience and watching your father! It's clear the talent runs in your blood - you were born with it! You're amazing!
Thanks to all you girls.
I am glad I didn't miss this. I think Greet is darling, and the work she and her family do is beautiful and quality perfect!
Thank you for your sweet comments.
Have a great week!!
It was such a treat to hear her voice and to learn more about her and her family's business.
Thank you for this wonderful interview.
She is so humble and warm, very typical for Belgian people.
There is a wonderful style in Belgium, influenced by French Baroque and developed into their very own.
I have followed her blog from the beginning...Wonderful!
Thank you so much!
