  1. Dear Sir,
    thank you very much for joining Something White! Happy to meet you and to discover your world!
    You definitely should come to Belgium and visit Brussels (amongst others): the Art Deco-house of Victor Horta and much more. You´ll love it! My husband also does like this period of art very much. We live near the French border; next time we´ll go to visit the famous La Piscine in Roubaix ( Do you know that museum?
    Best regards, Marjolijn (Belgium)

  2. I've heard of the museum but haven't been there myself. Looks interesting and a great example of adaptive reuse of a building.
