vacation time

holiday

I am on holiday to Ibiza and Formentera in Spain enjoying the good life! I have some posts lined up for you so you will not notice that I’m gone but I will not respond to email or announce blog posts through the various social media channels. I will be posting some holiday snap shots though via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

a summer home on panarea

PANAREA1.jpg

Autumn has started but I still want to show you this summer house 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. I am loving the simple decor with the blue touches and of course that gorgeous view!

To celebrate the start of the new season, today some autumn colors! Although I’m more into Spring, I do look forward to light up candles and to warm, cosy evening near an open fire.

paola navone’s greek summer home

Paola Navone is one of my favorite designers and this is her summer home in Greece. The stunning house is located on one of the Cyclades Islands and has a gorgeous view over the Aegean sea.

I love this idea the painted ‘carpet’s on the concrete floors (indoors and outdoors!)..

The whole house is stunningly decorated with Paola’s own designs. The iron tables in the living room (top image) are from Paola’s collection that she designed for Gervasoni. The kitchen is simple but really works well in this old house.

Today I’m loving … these fun heart pillows from Wendy Polish. A big red heart is screen printed on organic hemp/cotton, the back of the pillow is made from salvaged denim. Made with love in Los Angeles!
