With autumn approaching it is time to stock up some warm scarves and cardigans! The latest addition (but already a favorite!) to my wardrobe is a cardigan from Dutch label Coisa. It is made of 100% merino and knitted delicate so it is super soft and comfortable!. As merino wool keeps you cool in the summer and warm during the colder season the cardigan is a versatile piece to have. Coisa is all about highly individualistic, funky scarves and shawls that are timeless, practical and crafted from the highest quality materials. Each knitted item is made from the finest Italian yarns and produced in limited numbers. Coisa owner Kim: ‘Comfortable scarves and shawls without frills or fanfare and in striking colors. Timeless items that we know will bring you years of enjoyment and durability. Owing to the finest textiles of the knitwear, our products are luxuriously soft on the skin’. Good to know, all items are manufactured in small studios in Portugal, The Netherlands, Turkey and Belgium, where they strictly adhere to responsible production and excellent working conditions. All Coisa items are reasonably prices (119 EUR for the cardigan) but Coisa kindly offers a 10% discount to readers of The Style Files. Enter code stylefiles15 at the check out process and you will receive your discount. Thanks Coisa!

AN INTERIOR DESIGNER’S HOME IN MALIBU, CALIFORNIA http://style-files.com/2015/08/31/an-interior-designers-home-in-malibu-california/ http://style-files.com/2015/08/31/an-interior-designers-home-in-malibu-california/#comments Mon, 31 Aug 2015 08:25:48 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=22022 Continue reading ]]>

This is the gorgeous Malibu home of interior designer Vanessa Alexander of Alexander Design and her husband Steven. After a extensive renovation, which involved taking down walls, adding skylights, adding new windows and doors, changing the floor plan dramatically, and bringing in more than a dozen 100-year-old olive trees, the home now resembles a Tuscan farmhouse. The goal for the renovation was to create more flow and openness, to make the home more inviting. Also, a connection to the outdoors and an indoor/outdoor lifestyle was essential so they can make the most of the amazing views. You can read the entire article (which included more information about furniture pieces) here on Domaine. My favorite elements of this house are the beautiful outdoor areas and the rustic wooden floor.

This bohemian chic home on the Spanish island of Formentera has been beautifully designed by Luis Galliussi. I love the cozy kitchen with a rustic wood table and accessories and colorful textiles. The pool terrace with sitting and eating areas is just perfect for summer! All walls and floors has been kept white but rugs, pillows, furniture pieces and home accessories give plenty of color to the various spaces.

The interior of this beautiful holiday home in Cadiz, Spain, is designed by Marta de la Rica. The home was built by architect Valentin de Madariaga.You can see Moroccan influences in his design. The base of the exterior as well as most of the interior is white, while accent colors (cushions, vases etc) give a Mediterranean vibe.

This beautiful home on the island of Ibiza, Spain, is about 400 years old. The estate, which is surrounded by almond trees, cactus and olive trees, is owned by a couple from New York who fell in love with the place the first time they saw it. They updated the home with a new kitchen and did some repairing but kept the rustic and simplistic nature of the architecture. The decor is a mix of urban sophistication and ethnic elements. For the owners experiencing the silence and the various seasons is the greatest luxury.
