On our radar since 2009, the minimalist oasis Galerie Sofie Lachaert in Tielrode, Belgium, offers an ever-changing display of vintage and modern pieces curated by jewelry and product designer Sofie Lachaert. With two guest rooms that Lachaert runs as a bed and breakfast, you might be tempted to claim permanent residency. Photography by Danica O. Kus .
