|Part of Executive Room at the Grand Hotel Casselbergh|
From previous interior design posts on A Glass Of Ice, it would seem many of you share my appreciation of design schemes that merge earthy, neutral colours with soft textures and flashes of metallics.. with this in mind, I was in heaven. To put it into perspective, I have about fifteen photos saved to my Mac of the lamp shown below and a further ten of the picture frames mounted to the wall!

One thing to note, however, is that the dessert menu wasn't thrilling. Instead, we walked about ten minutes through the city to reach another of my favourite places, the quiant Tea-room De Proeverie, and I'm not alone with my appreciation for this one as it seems to consistently be a hit with tourists! I indulged in a couple of slices of apple cake on this occasion, however I highly recommend their vast menu of cupcakes as well. Oh and all hot drinks come with a china dish containing three chocolate crisps and one chocolate praline truffle. Cute? I think so!

After settling into Bruges and eating a ridiculous amount of food, all that was left to do before heading back to the hotel (see hotel information here) was to wander through the cobbled streets and admire the city we were staying in..
