It has been raining a lot in this part of the world. I don’t want summer to be over and I keep posting summer inspired posts until Fall really is here. Today seven perfects spots for enjoying a lazy summer day.
Can you believe that this tranquil garden is right in the middle of of the hustle and bustle of Echo Park, an urban neighborhood of Los Angeles. The lush garden belongs to jeweler designer Kathleen Whitaker who tells Gardenista that the piece of land was a huge selling point for her. “Living in Southern California is all about bringing the outdoors in—whether it’s the lush surroundings or the beautiful LA light.”
This lovely summer cottage in Ekerö, a group of islands not far from Stockholm, belongs to Asa Myrberg. Asa is the person behind decor blog Mycasa, she certainly has a flair for interior design. I love the dining area (top image) with a table built of 1700s floor planks with a welded steel frame. Mix & match chairs are from Eames, Thonet, Artwood and Sia.
Summer is in full swing and I hope all of you are having a wonderful time. In a couple of weeks we will be getting in Fall mode but before that I will be posting more gorgeous holiday homes and summer feeling posts. And I have some exciting news, I promised to show more of my home and I have worked with a photographer to create a home story of my home. This will be featured here on the style files next month but I will give you a sneak preview very soon. I am very happy with how the photos turned out and I can not wait to show them to you!
This white ranch style home looks like it is located in New England. Inside the interior is inspired by houses in Thailand and Bali. But this is actually as Swedish home, close to the city of Enköping.
I love working in our garden and this outdoor production by StyleCookie for Dutch magazine Flair is right up my alley. The ladies from StyleCookie created some love DIY project to do in and around the garden. You can make an outdoor shower for instance by using an plastic bottle, or compose a table from old wooden fruit boxes. Recycle and enjoy!
