Hidden in the historic heart of Gent, at only a stone’s throw from the vibrant Patershol district and the famous Gravensteen Castle, is located the B&B Graaf. Or rather, the ‘creative, unique and authentic design B&B Graaf’: all three rooms, owned by Gwynn Coumans (33) and Kenzo Krijgsman (28), are drenched in Belgian design.

More than 30 Belgian designers are represented in beds, wall paint, shelves and even the breakfast tableware. Among them are Atelier Belge, Studio Ellefant, Lustr.Design, Joël Schuurmans, Nortstudio, Armand & Francine, Hannemans and many other Belgian (upcoming) standouts.

Graaf consists of three inspiring rooms, each with a distinct character, story, name ánd colour. Margriet, the pink one, Olga, the green lady of the house and Emile, the blue man of the house are one of kind, drenched in design you sleep, eat and dream in. They each have a private bathroom with a rain shower and a toilet. They are equally kind, lovely and inviting and more than ready to welcome you any time soon. Extra cool feature? Everything you see can be bought on the spot or online at

For a night of dreaming in design, you pay between 95 euro (Margriet room) and 115 euro (Olga or Emile room), breakfast not included. Wanna try? Check out
