Interiors: Vintage White

This home is full of vintage treasures and comfortable, shabby beauty...all the things we need in a super cozy home. The Pottery Barn chairs in the living room are perfect for relaxing in front of the fire. I love the mix of wood with the dining room table, chairs, bench as well as the beautiful bowl in the center....and of course the entry is a beauty! So well styled...

Enjoy!

Summer House in White

This wonderful summer house has got so many fantastic details....First of all I love the veranda. It makes me think of my trips to Maine in the summer. Then there are the fun built in couches that also double as beds for guests, the built in desk, the sleek storage cupboards, the concrete counters in the kitchen and the wonderful bright yellow accents in the guest room. Not to mention the wonderful wooden beds...which I would have to paint white I am afraid...

Enjoy!

Dreamy Decor in the South of France

How could I not love this house? First of all it is situated in the town of Uzège in Saint-Quentin-la-Pottery. This just happens to be in the South of France and I love the south and I hope to spend most of my later years in any small village there. Secondly, this town is known for its many potters (thus the name) and I, if you are not aware, am a potter! ( I need to visit this village on my next trip!)

Of course there are other reasons to love this house mostly to do with the fantastic decor. The renovation of the home began with the new owners, a young couple with one small child at the time, hiring local workers to do the finishing. Unhappy with the quality of work they decided to dive in and do it themselves, becoming experts in plastering, decor and design. I think they did a great job and really like the use of stone throughout the home. I also find the lettering above the counter in the kitchen very sweet and gives it character and coziness. What do you like best in this home?

 

Enjoy!

Inspiration In White: Moroccan Style

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

I was so inspired when I saw the photos below of this wonderful Moroccan Style home all in whites. Usually this style tends to be very colourful so to see these rooms all done in white, black and silver is such a treat. This is the getaway home of designer Valerie Barkowski who also has a home in Brussels.

I have also included the video of her home from the website Interieurs.fr. The video is in French but don't let that stop you from watching it as there are many features in the video that are not shown in the photos! What Valerie explains is how she had different artists help create the furniture and how she created the fabric for the pillows by doing x-rays of flowers! The home is from the 17th century so much of it has been lovingly renovated. The bed cover with the long shirt integrated into the vintage sheets is just stunning.  So beautiful!

This house is available to rent. Contact here www.darkawa.net 

 

Enjoy!

Rustic Retreat

This gorgeous space is not a home but a luxury bootcamp called The Ranch! Thanks to Est Magazine, we get a sneak peek inside these wonderful, calm and peaceful rooms....which I think you would need after being out all day doing four or five hours of group hikes, daily yoga sessions and core and ab work. 

A bit if luxury with a rustic feeling, I think this is a place I could actually enjoy a week of detox!

Enjoy!
