Today an old favorite! I blogged about this gorgeous home on Formentera two years ago and it has been a favorite of many readers. I just love the use of natural materials. Look at those large wooden doors! Also the wooden kitchen cabinets, the bathroom and the outdoor area are stunning.
Beautiful natural stone tile floors can be found through the entire home.
And of course the bathroom (images above and below) is stunning as well. I love the driftwood mirror, I have a similar one in my home.

This lovely apartment looks spacious but this two room home in Gothenburg, Sweden, measures only 50m2. I love how limited space is used and the decoration is just beautiful. Is this your dream home? Lucky you: it is for sale!

Some beautiful grey on this rainy day. Spring should be near but seems miles away. I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. Happy Monday! PS: I’m loving the tiles in the first and in the last image.

I have featured this stylish house on the Greek island Mykonos before (you can see it here). But I came across some new images and as the house has got a new look I decided that it is worth showing you again. The holiday home, which balances on a small hilltop with breathtaking views over the Aegean sea and the magical island of Delos, is actually for rent (however only the rich can afford it..).

We have an open plan living room and kitchen area with a wooden floor. It would have been to much (wood on wood) to have a wooden kitchen as well so we opted for a white kitchen. But I do love a kitchen made from wood. The kitchen below is actually made from a single elm tree. It is gorgeous don’t you think? Today’s post is the last one in this week’s series about kitchens. Earlier I featured white kitchens and here you can see black kitchens.

Last Monday I showed you some white kitchens. Today is about black! What do you think of these black kitchens? Do you prefer these or the kitchens in white?

This week will be about kitchens. Kitchens come in various colors. When picking a color scheme for your kitchen you have to choose a color that will outlast trends. You have to love the design and color now but also in the years to come. In my opinion the best option is either to have white, black or wooden cabinets as these are timeless. I will be showing there three options this week, starting today with examples of white kitchen. I am curious to know which color would be your first choice!

Some of my favourite things and ideas that I found this week:
1. a kitchen with wooden cabinets;
2. white pots and pans from 4th market;
3. wooden spoons from Sukha;
4. a wall with paintings and drawings (image by Felix Forest);
5. a white kitchen.
I love a rustic look for a kitchen or dining area. To achieve this look you can use a rustic wooden table (preferably made from recycled wood), wooden breadboards and black table and kitchenware.

The trend for kitchen storage solutions has been to have open kitchen shelves and putting all your cookware, dinnerware and glassware on display. I do prefer this open shelf design in stead of closed cabinets but here are some disadvantages involved. The main one is that you can’t conceal clutter. You have to be organised, placing back every item in the proper position to avoid that the open shelf look messy and unorganized. Also, the shelves should be washed frequently as they become dirty from house dust and cooking grease. What do you prefer: closed cabinets or open shelves?
