seagreen1

Sea green, aqua, turquoise … for me these are the ultimate summer colors. If I ever have a beach home, I will use these colors to decorate it (together with white). I keep dreaming about this house, but in the mean time some shades of sea green for some summer inspiration.

STUNNING BEACH HOUSE CASA AZUL IN EL SALVADOR http://style-files.com/2015/07/27/stunning-beach-house-casa-azul-in-el-salvador/ http://style-files.com/2015/07/27/stunning-beach-house-casa-azul-in-el-salvador/#comments Mon, 27 Jul 2015 06:44:02 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=21660 Continue reading ]]>

casaazul1

I am loving this stunning summer home with touches of sunny yellow! Traditional features such as wooden beams and roof made of of palm leaves have been combined with modern, straight lines and a minimalistic decor. The beach house was designed for a young family of four at Playa Azul, close to El Salvador’s border with Guatemala. As fulltime city dwellers, the family wanted their home away from home to maintain the sensations of the beach; so architectural firm Cincopatasalgato designed their home lots of natural textures and colors, interior gardens, and transitional interior/exterior spaces.

white pastel bolig

This is the home of blogger Louise T. Johansen, her husband Jesper and their two daughters. There is a lot of white in this 114m2 villa located in Hedensted, Denmark. But the pastel accessories and furniture pieces give color and a feminine touch to the various rooms. The decor is a mix of designer brand items (such as Hay, Cph, Ferm Living, Eames) and IKEA, combined with vintage finds such as the vintage rugs. The result is a fresh and bright family home! Update: I received some questions about the shelving system in the dining area: these shelves are from IKEA.

I love these colorful cushions made of vintage fabrics! Not only are they great for indoor use but they also are perfect to give color to a garden and/or outdoor areas. These (image above) are from Barrington Blue, who also does some beautiful upholstered furniture pieces such as the bench below. And here you can find another source for kilim cushions.

This beautiful country cottage is situated in the middle of a forrest in Sweden. The home, which was in built in 1929, is decorated in a modern country style mixed with vintage pieces. Steel and concrete give a slight industrial touch. The beautiful black cabinet in the kitchen (image no. 6) was made from old windows that were found when the owners moved into the old house. A very lovely bright family home!

This stunning boat house is situated near a lake in Norway. Owners Gunn and Finn use this cosy retreat as their summer home. Reading a book, jumping in the water, enjoying a bbq dinner with friends … I can see this all happening here.

THE TRAVEL FILES: SOPHIA CALDERY SUITES ON SANTORINI http://style-files.com/2015/07/15/the-travel-files-sophia-caldery-suites-on-santorini/ http://style-files.com/2015/07/15/the-travel-files-sophia-caldery-suites-on-santorini/#comments Wed, 15 Jul 2015 08:15:28 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=21543 Continue reading ]]>

Santorini is high on my list of places to visit. I have been to this beautiful Greek island before but that was in 1990 when I was island hopping during summer school holiday. It will be hard to choose accommodation as the island has some stunning hotels. For example Sophia Caldera Suites which offers beautiful, spacious, luxury living hotel suites. This romantic traditionally modern boutique property has individually styled suites and rooms with the infamous Caldera sunset view. The building was reconstructed and renovated with the appropriate care, during 2015. The original manor houses were built more than 150 years ago by a Turkish business man who was in love with the island. He was one of the most important philhellene and moreover he was over fascinated by the Cycladic architecture and philosophy of the Greek islands. During the first construction he found and kept them safe a lot of antiques as well as genuine Santorinian artifacts and unique items of different sections of the island’s history. The retreat itself is nestled in the heart of the colorful volcanic rocks. All 13 individually designed rooms and suites are stylish and beautiful decorated with an eye for details. I would certainly feel at home here! For more information, bookings and rates you can visit the hotel’s website.
