villapetra1

This villa on the Greek island of Antiparos is a former stone ruin that has been converted into a stylish two bedroom summer home. It is surrounded by two acres of land which gives a lot of privacy. The summer home has completely refurbished by well known Greek architect Fania Sinaniotis. The modern touches, such as the metal kitchen table, contrast beautifully with the raw wood and whitewashed beams. I love the old wooden shutters that are now being used as partition doors between the kitchen and living room. The house can be rented as a holiday home, for more information you can contact Antiparos Escape Villas.

I received an email from Elena, introducing me to Agnandi. This small complex of summer suites and villas on Mykonos (Greece) has been created by her parents almost 25 years ago. Elena and her husband (both are architects) are the co-owners of Agnandi and they have renovated the property during the last 2 years. About Agnandi: Freshly renovated by the owners-architects, only 500 meters uphill over the new port and within an easy 5 minute car-ride from Hora, nestles Agnandi, an ideal summer get-away for a quiet and relaxing holiday. Surrounded by two and a half acres of lush garden filled with geraniums and bougainvilleas, are 18 independent residences, varying in size, that offer all the comforts of a perfectly set country home, coupled with the personalized services of a hotel. I have been to several Greek islands (I love Greece!) but have never been to Mykonos. After seeing these beautiful images of Agnandi, this place is now high on my list of places to visit! Please visit Agnandi’s website for more information and bookings.

Time seems to slow down to a dream-like pace as one takes in the breath taking blue of the Aegean sea and sky, the charming white of the town of Mykonos (Hora), ancient Delos and the splendid surrounding Cycladic islands whilst lazily counting all boats entangled in a perpetual choreography in and out of the island’s ports.

Simplicity, high ceilings and bare concrete floors were the architectural key words when Karen and Peter built their dream house in North Zealand, Denmark. The design was inspired by an old barn that the couple once saw. The newly built house measures 250m2, proving enough space for four children. But a large house like this can lack warmth and coziness. Interior stylist Sidsel Zachariassen helped to build a common thread in the decor of the house. The end result is a beautiful mix between new and old, cold and warm, and soft tones with black contrasts.

malinda_reich_ceramics_2

I love the beautiful ceramic pieces created by Malinda Reich. Malinda is a ceramic artist who lives and works in San Francisco. Her one-of-a-kind wheel thrown and carved pieces are functional as well as decorative, both rustic and delicate. Many of her bowls and vases feature hand-carvings inspired by her Scandinavian roots and her love of good food and cooking. As all pieces are handmade and high fired, there will always be a slight variation in color and shape. Malinda’s little works of art are available from her website but also from online shop Quitokeeto. I have been trying to get my hand on a piece but her work is sold very quickly!

A 19TH CENTURY BARN IN HUDSON VALLEY, NEW YORK http://style-files.com/2016/05/13/a-19th-century-barn-in-hudson-valley-new-york/ http://style-files.com/2016/05/13/a-19th-century-barn-in-hudson-valley-new-york/#comments Fri, 13 May 2016 09:32:02 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=24248 Continue reading ]]>

Architecture and interiors firm BarlisWedlick did an amazing job in renovating and redesigning this 19th century barn in Hudson Valley, New York. The main house is constructed from structural insulated panels from Vermont Timber Frames and clad in charred cedar. The open living-and-bedroom area of this rural retreat (image below) can be divided by a wall that rises from within the master-suite platform. Interior designer Elaine Santos blended her client’s collection of vintage furniture with no-fuss pieces like a Shaker-style bench by Ilse Crawford for De La Espada. The keyword that was used for the interior design is “neo-Shaker”. Everything in the house needed to be functional but also inviting. In this way, the tactile experience of objects was just as important as their aesthetics. The result is simply stunning!

This idyllic house in Falsterbo, Sweden, is surrounded by more than a hundred various types of roses (can you imagine the sweet smell in summer!). The beautiful wooden house was built in 1901 and has been painted in gray and white. Owners David and Madeleine: “The house was quite significantly distorted when we bought it, but we saw the potential and qualities that were hiding under layers of fiber cement, plaster walls and vinyl flooring. They have successfully tried to keep the summer feeling of the house (it was originally a summer home) by keeping atmosphere light and airy.
