This whitewashed hillside country cottage on the Costa Brava in Spain belongs to Catalan artist and color forecaster Pepa Poch. Rather than focus on style or era, Pepa describes her dwelling in terms of its elements: wood, stone, ceramic, brass. It’s a perspective that comes naturally, considering that the artist designed almost every understated surface, fitting, and fixture. In her studio, whitewashed walls and rustic floors of reclaimed barn wood and concrete allow her paintings to take center stage beneath expansive skylights. The series of blue-green canvases served as inspiration for Poch’s spring/summer 2015 palettes. You can read more about this beautiful home here on Lonny.
Last week we enjoyed a few days of beautiful spring weather. Although it was short (now we are having lots of rain and strong winds) it inspired me to search for dreamy summer homes and create this post. This home, designed by Monaco-based architectural firm Humbert & Poyet, in the South France is small but who needs space with an outdoor area with gorgeous views over the Mediterranean sea…
When you think of a Swedish home you almost automatically assume that it has a lot white, monotone colors and Scandinavian design furniture pieces. But Amelia Widel’s home in Stockholm is different. Her eclectic bohemian apartment has a more Parisian feel to it with a beautiful collection of antiques and art, vintage finds and a color scheme that has pink and a gorgeous shade of blue. Amelia is an interior decorator and she has her own furniture line called Melimeli (I love her sofa’s!). She is also a blogger for ELLE Decoration Sweden.

This one-bedroom apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a great example that you can turn a small space into a cosy home. The (small) kitchen is in the living room and there isn’t very much floor space but an apartment like this is perfect for first time buyers.
Today I start fresh again with this stunning farmhouse in upstate New York (USA). It took 18 months to transform this dark two-story home into an airy loft like space. Owners Kelli Cain and Brian Crabtree did most of the work themselves. Kelli, who is a ceramist, even made the tiles for the kitchen backsplash. As they didn’t want to build something that would be a burden to the universe they used repurposed materials wherever they could. The massive sliding door separating the work and living space, for instance, was reclaimed wood from the old house’s floorboards. Read more about this beautiful home on Martha Stewart.
