A LOVELY SWEDISH COUNTRY COTTAGE & GARDEN

scandicottage3

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. You can see the entire article with more photos and information here on Lovely Life.

THE TRAVEL FILES: SAN GIORGO HOTEL ON MYKONOS

ricard myk 2

I have featured the San Giorgio hotel before but this hotel on Mykonos, Greece, is too gorgeous not to be featured again.. True, authentic, simple – the hotel’s interior is a collection of eclectic treasures and organic materials. Every piece of furniture is handpicked, has its spirit of simplicity and the power of craftsmanship. Just how I like it!

SWEET SUMMER COLORS: SHADES OF SEAGREEN

Sea green, aqua, turquoise … for me these are the ultimate summer colors. If I ever have a beach home, I will use these colors to decorate it (together with white). I keep dreaming about this house, but in the mean time some shades of sea green for some summer inspiration.

I love these colorful cushions made of vintage fabrics! Not only are they great for indoor use but they also are perfect to give color to a garden and/or outdoor areas. These (image above) are from Barrington Blue, who also does some beautiful upholstered furniture pieces such as the bench below. And here you can find another source for kilim cushions.
