[Tags|, ]

Saturday 7 March

On Saturday Alyson had planned a little Art Nouveau/Art Deco route around some of the fantastic buildings dotted around Brussels (most are sadly closed to public apart from during their art nouveau biennale in October but I pinched a few google images) still even from outside whoa…must try and see some of those inside one day.

First we went to see Stoclet Palace, an Art Nouveau grand marble-clad home based on a series of cubic shapes., love to go inside has it has Klimt freeze mosaics and some amazing decors.

Next was the Hôtel Solvay is a large Art Nouveau town house designed by Victor Horta , pretty windows, decor and elaborate ironwork. Even the numbers of the address (224) is lovely and curvy.
