A few weeks ago I featured a beautiful house in Brazil. Today an update on this house as I have some more images and information. The main news is that this beautiful summer house, which comfortably sleeps up to 8 people, can be rented. Casa Tiba is one of the rare houses that offers space and privacy. It is located in the best area of Trancoso, just a 5 minutes walk to the nicest beach. This hidden jewel is a bohemian chic house that mixes local material and furniture, commissioned pieces made by artists and craftsman. The open space allows the breeze to enter, and will stay fresh even in very hot season. The private infinity pool overlooking the luxurious nature is available to cool down on a warm day. More information can be found here.
Recently I came across one of the most beautiful summer houses I had ever seen. It was featured in Australian magazine Vogue Living. I think you’d love this house too so I was very happy to find some images of this stunning home on photographer Prue Ruscoe’s website. The house, located near one of Sydney’s beautiful beaches, is built in a modern Greek style. The interior, which I adore, is decorated with muted colors and wooden accessories. There is just nothing that I don’t like in this house. And what about that outdoor area?!
These gorgeous cabanas were recently featured in the German AD magazine. The summer cottages are built in a rustic style and decorated in that same natural chic style. Responsible for the interior designer is Vera Iachia, who used mainly furniture and accessories made from natural materials. Unfortunately I don’t have any additional information besides that the cottages are located in the town of Comporta.
Another summer home today, this time the property is located on Sardinia, Italy. The interior is designed by Marina Wenger from Geneva. Most furniture pieces and accessories come from Asia: doors from Indian and other Indian and Chinese pieces create a warm and rustic look throughout the house.
I regularly receive email from readers asking if the beautiful Ibiza or Formentera homes featured on my blog are for rent. These houses are often private homes and when I know if they can be rented I mention this in the blog post. If you are looking for a holiday villa on Formentera you can visit Villas Formentera, this company offers a selection of the finest and most charming rental villas on Formentera some of which are featured in these images.
Please know that properties on the islands are very expensive and so are renting prices. For more holiday inspiration you can also follow my other blog The Travel Files where I feature beautiful houses (and hotels) that are available for vacation.
This lovely old farmhouse the Dutch village of Spannum belongs to textile designer Claudy Jongstra. It is in this home and studio where Claudy works with local weavers, creating fabric from the wool produced by her own flock of sheep. Claudy then colours the hand woven fabric using dyes created from the plants in her garden. The decor of the home is rustic and slightly traditional but with a modern feel to it. The use of wood creates a warm and cosy atmosphere.
The Housing Fair Finland 2013 is the largest housing and living event in Finland. This fair provides the opportunity to visit and admire different living solutions and residential areas. Finnish magazine Deko is participating to the fair with our their own housing-fair home called Maja. The interior is designed by the residents themselves, with the help of Deko editor-in-chief Ulla Koskinen. Solid concrete floor, calm white surfaces and unique details make the place modern and minimal with an industrial touch.
