Owned by Bert Verschueren and Vincent Defontainers, Boulevard Leopold is located in a 19th century house in Antwerp, between the Albert Park and the City Park; the owners say their aim in the interiors was to create a sense of "forgotten glory." With three regular rooms for rent and two larger apartments available on longer terms, the B & B, built in 1890, features a mix of antique and contemporary design. For rates and more information, visit Boulevard Leopold . Photography by Ben Lambers and Tatjana Quax of Studio Aandacht for Design Tripper .
