AN ITALIAN HOME DESIGNED BY PAOLA NAVONE

falkner-1

This beautiful home in Umbria, Italy, belongs to hotelier Andrea Falkner Campi. Well known Italian designer Paola Navone was asked to transform the old building dating from the 17th century into a modern 500m2 open space home. The beautiful ten meter high ceilings give a spacious feel. Wooden floors and furniture pieces (such as the large dining table) add a touch of warmth. I love the bathroom tiles on floor and walls which are also designed by Paola for Flaminia and are all handmade in Morocco.

This lovely family home is situated in the country side near Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Owners Dana and Dick demolished the old house that was on the premises and, as they had little time, they picked a prefab home from a catalog and hired a builder to build their home. The result is a beautiful spacious and bright family home.

WEEKEND ESCAPE: THE LITTLE MONASTERY IN BELGIUM

monestry-1

The Little Monastery is a beautiful B&B situated in the green and open countryside of Damme in Belgium. The property has a long history: the land was a gift of Margaretha of Constantinople in 1275. In the late 16th century a small monastery with about ten monks was founded. The main goal of the monks to come here was to build dikes & to protect the land from getting flooded. Recently the Garnier family turned the property into a magnificent place to stay. The B&B consists of carefully restored buildings originating from the 17th, 18th & 19th century. Owner Brigitte Garnier: “We feel lucky to have the chance to live in a magnificent place called ‘Vaucelleshof’, where the light is strong and the Flemish country feeling is present”.
