Today post shows another gorgeous home located on Formentera, Spain. I featured this house last year and it still is one of favorites. I love ever part of this home, especially the very inviting outdoor areas.

Wooden kitchen cabinets and white walls: such a beautiful combination.

That huge fire place, those beams … everything is just gorgeous!

The use of natural materials and the choice of furniture and accessories suits this house perfectly.

casa daniela on formentera, spain

daniela1.jpg

This beautiful house is the home of Daniela Cavestany and Spanish photographer Jordi Canosa. It is no wonder that Daniela is a stylist as her home on the Spanish island Formentera is stunningly decorated. It is this style that I love: rustic but stylish, use of natural materials, a cosy bohemian chic vibe, neutral tones with purple and lavender accents. To me this is the perfect summer home! The house is for rent during the summer months. You can contact Daniela at [email protected] for more information and rates. Please bare in mind that this is a luxurious home and that rental prices for these kind of houses on Formentera are high (between €400 – 1000 per day).

a house on panerea, italy

Today another summer house that I love. The simple yet stylish decor, the beautiful view … it is all gorgeous! The house is located on Panarea, Italy. Panarea is the second smallest of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic island chain north of Sicily.

There are currently about 280 residents living on the island year-round; however the population increases dramatically in summer with the influx of tourists. In recent years, the island has become known internationally for its celebrity visitors.

a summer house on ponza, italy

As spring has arrived and summer is on the way I will be featuring some gorgeous summer houses again. I start with some of my favorite summer homes that I have featured in the past years. Today I take you to this beautiful house on the island of Ponza Italy.

summer house on ponza, italy

Ponza is the largest of the Italian Pontine Islands archipelago, located 33 km south of Cape Circeo in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The island is located about halfway between Naples and Rome. It’s a volcanic island with some nice beaches as well as spectacular cliffs. You can read more about Ponza in this article that was published in The Independent.

I love the white plastered walls of this cave house. Although the ceilings are low, the house is still light and airy.

our home

slaapkamer.jpg

I don’t very often post pictures of my own home. The reason for this that it is hard to find the right time to take photos. The light has to be good (we lack natural light in winter time) and with a 1.5 year old little boy who is very energetic (a nice way of saying that he makes a lot of mess..) the house never seems to be tidy enough to be photographed. But today (finally) a picture of our bedroom. The lavender bedspread is new and it is inspired me to make this photo. The copper star pendant is from Le Souk, as well is the bedspread and the rustic wooden tables next to the bed.

a lovely cottage

Remember this kitchen with a blue stove that I featured in January? I came across some more pictures of this lovely cottage in the UK designed by Dave Coote. I thought you might be interested in seeing them!

natural materials

Today some ‘natural style’ interiors. I have a love for raw, natural materials and these kind of materials can be found in every room of our home. When getting toys for our 1.5 year old son we try to get him things that we don’t mind looking at (mostly from wood). But kids do love colorful plastic things and there are some very ugly plastic toys lying around the house as well. I LOVE that wooden train in the top picture. What kind of toys do you have for your kids?
