This beautiful 19th century home in the hills of Marseille (France) belongs to Emma Francis, owner of stylish fashion brand Sessùn. The decor is an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, curiosa and textiles sourced from all over the world. This is a well travelled family! One of the best features of the house is the breathtaking view of the Mediterranean sea.
I love Victorian style terrace houses. This stunning home, designed by Beatrix Rowe Interior Design, is located in Melbourne, Australia. The decor is modern but the original features and oak wood flooring & doors give a classic touch.
When renovating a home a lot of thought goes into making a floor plan, choosing kitchen and bathroom appliances, selecting a colour scheme and buying furniture pieces. But most homeowners spend surprisingly little time on selecting door and windows furniture (in Dutch: deur- en raamkrukken). Although these serve a functional purpose, door and window furniture are also design elements and can actually add a stylish touch to your home and complement the rest of the interior. So choosing the right lever handle is more important than you would think!
When we renovated our home a few years ago and were faced with choosing door and window fixtures, we found out that there are a lot of options when it comes to design, materials and finish. It seems like a daunting task to make the right choice but by following some guidelines you will be able to find the best option for you and your home.
This beautiful historic country house located in Puglia, Italy, is idyllically surrounded by 30,000m2 of private grounds with olive groves and vineyards. Masseria Scorcialupi is a 18th century villa which is divided in three separated apartments named after the herbs of the courtyard. The decor has the traditional style of Puglia’s manor farms. The private terraces offer a terrific view of the country. The house in the quiet countryside of Salento has lots of charm and is full with atmosphere of rural life. Life flows slowly here and it is therefore the perfect place for relaxing and privacy. Masseria Scorcialupi can be rented, more information is available on their website.
You might know Yvonne Eijkenduijn from her well-known blog Yvestown where she shares cooking, baking, gardening, crafting, decorating, and DIY tips. This multi-talented lady recently launched her first book “Yvestown in the Kitchen”. Yvonne believes love of food is not only a love of cooking, but also a love of the kitchen in which the food is prepared. She therefore asked some of her friends to share their favorite recipes and to give (the readers) a tour through their kitchens and dining areas. This makes the book both a cookbook as well as an interior lifestyle book. A combination I love! The delicious (easy to make ) recipes, the colorful photography and the beautiful interiors make this book as source of inspiration. One of my favorite chapters in the book is the one about Annemie & Jan. Their outdoor kitchen, which is featured in this post, is very inviting! Yvestown in the Kitchen is available from Amazon. There is also a Dutch version (Yvestown in de Keuken) which you can get here and here.
