    when did you live in brussels? below is a plan of the current metro network with possible future extensions. the most important change in recent years was the reintegration of west station. it's now easier to go to brussels south from where you can take the international trains.

    Early to mid 80s. I visited once in 92, but haven't been back since.

    And yeah, that metro map is way more intricate than when i was there.

    Love the house but why do all of these places have such sloppy bedding? If you know your house is being photographed, why not at least by a $145 bedding set at Kohls as a last resort?

    lol another one of the differences between Europe and the US. I'm always amazed by how elaborate beds are here - fitted sheet, normal sheet, comforter, and then about 10 different pillows in different sizes and patterns. Whereas in Europe it's usually a fitted sheet and then a duvet with a removable cover, no regular sheet at all and a few pillows.
    I d the duvet and a couple of pillows thing - all I have to do to make the bed is throw the duvet over the bed again and fluff up the pillows. I would never have the patience to deal with tucking sheets and arranging cushions and all of that. Plus I sleep with one pillow at night, what do you even do with all the rest of the decorative pillows people have on their beds when they go to sleep at night?

    I agree that for the pictures they could have at least put a bit more effort into making the bed and smoothed out the duvet instead of leaving it all crumpled looking.
