This stylish summer house is located on the Greek island Mykonos. It balances on a small hilltop with breathtaking views over the Aegean sea and the magical island of Delos.

This villa belongs to Katie and Johnny Friedman who live here with their three children. The couple fell in love with the island years ago and even got married here.

Although the house is only four years old, it is built in a charming traditional style with rounded corners, contrasting with the slightly rougher sand-colored stone tiles on the terrace.

The renovation of the interior is done by South African interior designer Jayne Wunder. She is a good family friend and had previously decorated their home in London.

With three boys under twelve living in the house, practical details were of great importance, but the owners also wanted a modern and timeless look that blends with the distinctive architecture of Mykonos.

Jayne’s signature style is a minimalistic and soothing monochromatic design.

  1. Danielle – This is so funny! This is where I was planning on having our wedding. It is stunning no? I found it about a year and a half ago and have since been dreaming of it. But I was not able to get all the pieces together (budget, dates and so on) so our wedding will be at an other location. I am a little secretive about where… but it will be pretty as well. I still dream of this amazing villa. Actually they have two next to each other. Maybe for a vacation in the future!

    happy weekend! xx – J
