We've long admired the work of Belgian interior architects Daphné Daskal and Stéphanie Laperre (see  Architect Visit: Daskal & Laperre in Brussels ). M Residence, a standout project by the firm, has an elegant, pared-down living room that we'd like to re-create at home. Here's where to find the right chalky white paint, Belgian linen curtains, velvet throw pillows, and more. Above: The room, with grand entry and basket-weave-patterned floor, is a white canvas layered with rich neutral tones and textures. Photographs of M Residence in Brussels  by Van Verlinde for Daskal & Laperre. The Basics Above: Benjamin Moore's Super White (left) and Decorator's White (right) are two favorites of architects. For more, see 10 Easy Pieces: Architect's White Paint Picks .
