Victor Horta's kitchen

Over the years, I suppose I've spent many hours in the kitchens of wherever we happened to be living at the time. It seems to have resulted in a fascination with kitchens in general but it's not often I'm sent any.

I like the look of this one, even though it's a bit empty.  When I turned the card over it stated that it was from the house of Victor Horta in Brussels (25 rue Americaine à Saint Gilles).  The name sounded familiar but I'm sorry to say, I had to look up who he was.

He was, as I'm sure everyone else knows, a famous architect of Art Nouveau houses in Belgium. Four of these houses, plus his own, are listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO as being prime examples of Art Nouveau.


  1. It seems like a very large kitchen...two tables! Not too bright and cheery, though.

  2. What a lovely kitchen. Big kitchens are wonderful!


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
