IN THE STYLE OF GREEK BOUTIQUE HOTEL CASA COOK

rhodos1

Casa Cook is a boutique hotel with 90 rooms, each coming with a small private swimming pool. The design is a collaboration between architect Vana Pernariv, interior designer Annabell Kutucu and design agency Lambs & Lions. I think the result is beautiful: there is a lot of white and natural materials such as wood and rattan give a rustic chic vibe. If you like this look, I have put together a collection of products with a similar look & feel.

1. four-poster canopy bedframe in solid oak | 2. kilim cushion cover (handmade in Turkey) | 3. rattan chair | 4. kilim rug from Turkey (now on sale) | 5. twig hooks made of acacia wood | 6. oak base with stone top | 7. ceramic cup (now 4 euro) | 8. large circular mirror | 9. kilim cushion cover (handmade in Turkey) | 10. jute rug | 11. wooden coffee table | 12. rattan basket |

And these European flax bed linens in beautiful shades of beige and browns will also look beautiful here.

black & white outdoor inspiration

Although it is still chilly outside, we are heading towards summer. Time for some outdoor inspiration! These images, shot by Dutch photographer Jeroen van der Spek, were featured in last year’s summer issue of interior magazine VT Wonen. I like the black & white theme which (to my surprise) creates a summery vibe.

Update: the designer of this swing is Alberto Sanchez. You can find more information here. Thank you Grace and ArticulateArt for letting me know!
