Winter has arrived here! We have been enjoying the beautiful winter weather for the last couple of days. Drinking hot chocolate, staying warm near a bonfire in our garden, playing in the snow: it all has been a lot fun! Here some images from our home & garden in winter time.
Moroccan riads are always a great source of inspiration. Ryad Sharai is one of the biggest riads in Marrakech. It is hidden behind a weather-beaten door in a narrow street in the Bab Tharzout quarter. A riad is a house with a patio and this gorgeous riad has quite a large patio. It has seven bedrooms, all situated around the patio and the pool. Behind the labyrinth of rooms there is a staircase leading to the terraces. From there you have a magnificent view of the city and the Atlas mountains. The cosy cushions make this place very inviting!
This beautiful Mas (a country house or farm in the South of France, usually made of stone) is located in Uzès, right in the heart of the Provence. The house is beautifully renovated and decorated with materials such as wood, stone and metal. I think this is a perfect combination of modern elements and traditional features.

Autumn has started but I still want to show you this summer house located on Panarea, Italy. Panarea is the second smallest of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic island chain north of Sicily. There are currently about 280 residents living on the island year-round; however the population increases dramatically in summer with the influx of tourists. I am loving the simple decor with the blue touches and of course that gorgeous view!
It is a dark and rainy day here in The Netherlands and soon it will be fall. Hopefully there will still be plenty of days to enjoy the garden and outdoors. Today some fall inspired outdoor spaces with lots of grey and black.
This beach house with gorgeous ocean view is located in Paternoster, a small fishing village two hour away from Cape Town, South Africa. Owner and architect Paul Versfeld created this holiday home to escape the busy life in Johannesburg with his family in weekends and during holidays. The architecture is inspired by local fishermen’s huts. The decor is simple with natural materials, such as wood, rattan and pine, creating an authentic look and a warm atmosphere. With its direct access to the beach, this home the perfect place to relax and unwind!
