I involve myself personally with every project so as to exploit and optimise all the advantages of your interior.


The basis of every project is the idea, which springs from the lifestyle and preferences of the client and takes into account the site and its history.

My present vision of internal architecture and design applies successfully to the bespoke improvement of private premises throughout Belgium and abroad, as well as to the design of shops, offices and restaurants.

Each project is unique and is undertaken in close collaboration with the client. My interior designs represent a fair balance between architecture and décor. I guarantee that your project will be stylish, personalised and comprehensive down to the finest details.

I involve myself personally with every project so as to exploit and optimise all the advantages of your interior. From the first sketch to final handover of the project, I remain available and in constant contact with the client.

An eye for detail

My main emphasis is on light and fluid circulation to define clear, precise and ergonomic spaces.

Allowing the entry of natural light is fundamental; the arrangement of artificial lighting is integrated logically into the architecture and your life style. Creating views of the interior and towards the exterior creates links between spaces and brings them alive. Opening/closing systems may be installed to allow views or spaces to be modified according to your wishes.

I also attach great importance to the study of colours and materials. Just like light, they add sensations and feelings to spaces. Combinations may sometimes be unexpected, but create surprise and personalise your interior.

Timeless and comfortable, my interior designs always show a high degree of refinement.

My commitments are to:

  • Design an aesthetic, functional project in line with your budget
  • Propose qualified contractors
  • Customise site monitoring according to the particular features of your project
  • Keep the schedule and budget under control
  • Defend your interests

We start with a home visit, which leads to an assessment of the desired results and a determination of the resources to be deployed to achieve them.

My task comprises three stages:

1/ The Preliminary Project

  • Design of a layout plan for the spaces and circulation areas
  • Production of 3D views of the internal spaces
  • Proposals for materials, lighting and décor components, etc.
  • Calculating the estimated project cost

2/ The Project

  • Production of an Execution Dossier comprised of project plans, specifications and descriptions of works, with survey and execution details
  • Invitations to tender and choices of contractor
  • Organisation of a work schedule

3/ Site monitoring

  • Supervision of works
  • Verification of documents (progress reports, statements, invoices)
  • Presence at final acceptance

A team of professionals

No limits acknowledged…

I can design a complete project, both in terms of the internal architecture itself and the décor. All my skills, and those of the highly experienced team around me, are deployed to fulfil your order.
From structural work down to the choice of objects, everything is designed and taken in hand.

To each project, Christophe Ternest brings a special, smooth ambiance with a dynamic chromatic palette and original combinations of surfaces, such as the glossiest lacquer and mat woodwork in bleached oak. Although in his design philosophy there is no universal recipe, the basic ingredients do not change: functionality, an equilibrium between alcoves and large spaces, all combined with a search for ergonomics and comfort, an elevated aesthetic standard and a zest for inventiveness.

Christophe Ternest - Confort

Our philosophy is to “architecturise” light and design, for each interior, a complete lighting system that defines and structures the space. Modern developments in lighting allows the unrestricted use of LED strips, treated as bright points whose broad chromatic spectrum can underline architectural or wall surface details, or fluidise circulation areas. More conventional lighting gives character to each design project: low-tension spots create beams of light, while the pure lines of halogen light fittings are at home in a traditional setting, and lighting accessories from contemporary creators contribute an “arty” touch.

Christophe Ternest - Lumière

The factor that typifies the Christophe Ternest philosophy is the freedom with which he assembles materials and colours. Pre-conceived ideas give way to surprising discoveries and unexpected marriages. The juxtaposition of felt tiles and a lino floor, or parachute fabric and plastic chairs, are perfect illustrations of his intimate combinations of classicism and audacity. The colour coordinations, and the fresh elegance of textures, contribute a jigsaw-like feeling to the whole project. Each piece is attached to another, creating a unique cocoon ambiance where lightness is ubiquitous.

Christophe Ternest -  Elegeance

Christophe Ternest looks at a house through a dressmaker’s spectacles: he drapes windows, covers armchairs and sofas and makes up beds using coloured fabrics and wall and floor coverings (carpets, stretched fabrics and curtains). He prioritises sober lines, strong, contrasting colours and a pure graphical style. He moves, without contradiction, through eclectic universes, bringing not only discipline and distinction but also softness. Each project combines strong elements with architectural and historical references which bring a sophisticated touch to the space.

Christophe Ternest - Distinction

Whether it be in a private house or a public place (shop, office or showroom), Christophe Ternest focuses on the precision of the layout, a use of space which is made-to-measure and as controlled as possible, the comfort of the occupants, ergonomics and the fluidity of circulation. This classical palette is combined with bleached wood and parquet, highly innovative paints and materials produced using new technologies. Christophe Ternest goes way beyond obvious functionality, calling upon a range of emotional and sensory experiences.
