Loving the colors of these beautiful cups by Studio Arhoj! The Sip Cup is a small hand-cast and glazed porcelain cup for the quick espresso, creamy cortado or small evening tea. It can also be used as a pot for tiny plants or as a container for small items or foods. Located by the harbour in Copenhagen, Studio Arhoj is a Danish interior & design studio run by Anders Arhoj. Originally founded in Tokyo in 2006, Studio Arhoj is now based in Denmark. In addition to exploring the visual relationship between Scandinavian simplicity and traditional Japanese culture Studio Arhoj is interested in keeping alive traditions and knowledge about old crafts such as wheel throwing and glaze construction.

This house with beautiful sea view is built on a steep hill on the island of Corsica (France). This ambitious project (the slope was not easy to manage) is a collaboration between architect Aurélie Barbey and designer /architect Marie Thurnauer. The cabins are built from pine wood and then painted black. The goal was to decorated with simple things and combine aesthetics with function to honor the natural beautiful of the island.

THE TRAVEL FILES: A KID FRIENDLY VILLA ON BALI http://style-files.com/2016/02/10/the-travel-files-a-kid-friendly-villa-on-bali/ http://style-files.com/2016/02/10/the-travel-files-a-kid-friendly-villa-on-bali/#comments Wed, 10 Feb 2016 11:13:11 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=23594 Continue reading ]]>

I often receive questions from readers if the beautiful (summer) homes that are featured on this blog can be rented. If they are available for short term rent I will mention this in the blog post with a link to a website for more information. From the high number of questions I can make up that traveling is a popular topic so I will be sharing more travel tips and beautiful homes which can be rented for holidays. Starting today with this beautiful villa that is listed on Airbnb. The colorful holiday villa is located on Bali, in a beautiful area called Umalas. This is where most expats live, and where most Europeans choose to spend their time in Bali. Although the area is very different to Seminyak, the hustle and bustle of Seminyak is only 5 minutes away. The owners of this villa are the designers behind Australian fashion label Mister Zimi. Their colorful style is clearly visible throughout the three-bedroom home, with bright colors, various bold colored textiles and a beautiful mural of a Mexican Otomi in the kids’ room. The villa is perfect for kids, there is a glass pool fence and a good sizes grassed garden, but is can also serve a group of friends or two couples. Komang, the villa manager will come to the villa each day and clean it. Should you require her to get you some supplies from the supermarket she is more than happy to do this. And she is also available as a babysitter, while her husband can be hired as a driver. Reservations can be made through Airbnb.

The building is which this beautiful home is located was built in 1888 in neo-Renaissance style. Luckily many original features such as the ceiling medallions, bay window, stucco work and mirrored doors are still in place. And what about that gorgeous old fire place? Isn’t that a stunning feature! This beautiful 3-room apartment is for sale but you will have to move to Gothenburg, Sweden. Which is not too bad as the Haka neighourhood is a lovely place to live with its picturesque wooden houses, 19th century-atmosphere and cafés. More information about this cosy home can be found on Stadshem’s website.

It isn’t cheap but isn’t this children’s set beautiful? The Peter’s chair (around 500 USD/EUR) and table (around 600 USD/EUR) were designed by Danish furniture designer Hans J. Wegner as a present for the baby son of Wegner’s friend and colleague Børge Mogensen. In the war years quality furniture was hard to find – so he made his own.

An old Jewish school in New York has been converted into a single family townhouse with an art gallery on the ground floor. Labo Design Studio has used as much of the old structure as possible in the design of the new building. The existing three floors were enlarged with the addition of a volume in the rear of the building connected to the main body through three symmetrical openings and a partial floor on the top projecting onto the two story high living area of the third floor. The spatial arrangement is reminiscent of a loft, where the living area is organized in the front and the bedrooms and technical spaces in the back. The vibrant color of the furnishing contrast with the monochromatic palette of the building materials.

This very large home (it measures 16500 sq ft!) is located in Primrose Hill in London, United Kingdom. The house has a private event space, a pool, gym, a music room and cinema. I like the use of natural materials which softens the industrial look. It is available for rent as location through JJ Locations.
