An Art Nouveau gem unmasked in Covid-hit Brussels
An emblematic Art Nouveau mansion designed by Belgian architect Victor Horta has opened its doors to the public in Brussels, revealing a long hidden jewel of the city's Belle Epoque glory. "It's hard to imagine, but in the 1950s and 1960s in Brussels everything was allowed, and it happened that Art Nouveau buildings were demolished, whether they were by Horta or other architects," said the 43-year-old finance executive, who now organises visits with the help of his wife.
'I was moving away from Venus for the first time in my life, so I wanted it to be really meaningful,' Serena said.
And she said working with her sister is easy because they give each other space. 'You have to know your lane. I’m really good at playing tennis; I’m not as good at interiors. But I was able to learn through just watching Venus.'
The home is an intracoastal property.

Venus then shared: 'I am not a fan of just having spaces to have them. Maybe some people use their formal living rooms, but we don’t.
