A SMALL BUT LOVELY SUMMER COTTAGE IN DENMARK

summercottage7

This small cottage measures only 39m2 but the cosiness makes up for the lack of space. In this tranquil place the owners can escape from their busy lives and daily worries. Going to the beach, cooking in the outdoor kitchen … life here is simple but good!

A FASHION DESIGNER’S SUMMER HOME IN TUNESIA

cote1

This is the Tunisian summer home of French fashion designer Manon Martin. It is here where Manon escapes to when she needs inspiration, which she finds in the light, warmth, the smell of the spices in the souks and the old crafts of Tunis. I love the combination of modern clean lines and the use of natural materials in her home.

MADE BY HAND: A SPIKY LITTLE VASE

cactus9

Loving this cute little cactus vase! I just purchased the mint green one from Etsy seller Oli’s cupboard. She mainly focusses on handmade original ceramics, mostly thrown on the wheel, but at the same time Oli (who is from the Czech Republic) is also trying to make new playful objects. She experiments with different glazes and new technology and materials. Inspiration comes from her Grandma’s cupboard and her country house loft space.

This lovely cottage in Gothenburg, Sweden, belongs to Elin Lannsjö. Her little home functions as an extension to her city apartment, especially in summer. Elin is a talented, self-taught potter and most of the plates and cups you see in her home are made by herself. Elin doesn’t not have a specific decorating style but relies on a feeling of joy that arises when she sees something that appeals to her. Sustainable living materials such as wood, stone, ceramic, natural colors, handmade things and flowers & plants can be found in this cosy home.
