DREAMING OF: A PLACE IN THE SUN

It is cold today in this part of the world. To keep (mentally) warm I dream about sunny places such as this Spanish outdoor area.

wi2

After years of living in the city (Paris, New York and Stockholm) Peter Simonsson and his wife Henriette dreamed of a house with a garden where they could live, work and go to the beach with their daughters Faye. They found an old farmhouse in Österlen in Southern Sweden. After an extensive renovation (only the beams and doors were left from the original buildings) their family home ready. The minimalistic interior has has a modern and light feel to it. Antique furniture pieces are combined with more modern objects. The owners mainly opted for pure and natural materials which give a certain softness to the white, minimalistic spaces.

TOUR AROUND MY HOME: THE GARDEN

ourgarden-1

Last time I showed you our bathroom and I promised that the next ‘tour’ would show the living room but as we are having beautiful sunny weather in this part of the world I think it is more suitable to show our garden first. Above you see the back of our home where we have a wooden terrace overlooking water and meadow land with grazing cows. The house is about 100 years old and it used to be a small farm. We don’t have any animals except for three lovely chicken who give us fresh eggs every morning. In the garden, which measures about 900m2, we have planted flowers in purple, pink and white. We also have some fruit trees such as an apple, pear, cherry and a prune tree. Very recently we built a playhouse (last image) for our son which of course he is very happy with! I hope you are enjoying the tour around our home so far. All images are taken by Paulina Arcklin.

AN ARTIST’S HOME ON THE COSTA BRAVA IN SPAIN

spa3

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.

Before Louis Galliussi got his hands on this Ibiza property, it used to be an old farmhouse which was in ruins. Can Kaki, as the finca is called, was extensively renovated and is now as beautiful home. The interior is tastefully decorated with natural materials but also unexpected objects such as the fishing net in the living room. Also the outdoor areas are stunning, Louis even created a beach with fine sand from neighboring island Formentera.
