About me

After a career in special education, I wanted to take a different direction. Beautiful interiors, architecture, fashion, art, delicious breakfasts, travelling… It has inspired me all my life and led me to furnish my own guest rooms and to receive people in my fine hometown Mechelen. Welcome!

Do you have a question about Mechelen, Huis Alfons or the cosy streets around it? I am always ready for a pleasant chat.

House Alfons was named after its architect, Alfons Roose. We found little information about the man or the house. We do know that our house dates from the 1930s and that Alfons Roose designed several buildings in the city of Mechelen, including the toy museum and several private homes.
