These gorgeous cabanas were recently featured in the German AD magazine. The summer cottages are built in a rustic style and decorated in that same natural chic style. Responsible for the interior designer is Vera Iachia, who used mainly furniture and accessories made from natural materials. Unfortunately I don’t have any additional information besides that the cottages are located in the town of Comporta.
When American design couple Robert and Cortney Novogratz fell in love with Brazil, they decided to buy a property in Transcoso. The beautiful wooden house is very different from their concrete home in Manhattan. Here their seven (!) children can walk barefoot, swim in warm water and run free. Although they work hard, having fun is essential for this inspiring family.
A small beach house is perfect for spending summer days. This Australian beach cottage has been decorated in a nautical style. Striped umbrellas, a paddle for hanging towels, hurricane lanterns .. these are just a few things that you can use to achieve a similar look. I love the chartreuse colored accessories – very summery!
The beautiful summer weather here in The Netherlands enables us to have lots of lunches and diners in our garden. Which inspired me to do this most about 10 inviting al fresco dining areas. I hope you are enjoying summer (or winter, depending where you live) as much as I do!

Years ago when we were in Palm Springs (which was part of our Californian road trip) we stayed in a small hotel run by a friendly gay couple with a gambling problem. In the garden there were lots of plastic pink flamingos and other bright colored Paraphernalia. Now there a lots of stylish places in Palm Springs such as Korakia Pensione, a stunning resort and spa nestled next to the mountains in the Palm Springs desert. The hotel, which was recently named one of the “Sexiest Hotels in America by Forbes Traveler, is crafted after a Mediterranean-style pensione. It blends the silhouette of Tangier with a whisper of the Mediterranean.
