WEEKEND ESCAPE: A VACATION HOME ON CORSICA

missoni-1

Carol, communications director at Zadig et Voltaire, and Fred, a photographer, spent many holidays with their children on Corsica before deciding to build their own holiday home on this French island. They carefully selected a plot and four summers later their dream home was a fact: a stunning contemporary 3-level home (all levels have sea view) which surprisingly blends well with the surrounding landscape. The owners love mixing styles and influences. As a result the decor has a Californian atmosphere but with an air of South America.

A FAMILY LOFT IN A FORMER HAT FACTORY IN BRUSSELS

milk-rfr8

Fatti and Pierre have transformed an old industrial building that used to be a hat factory to a beautiful loft in the centre of Brussels, Belgium. The decor is a mix of their two styles: Pierre is an amateur architect and Fatti is responsible for the feminine touch. The result is a beautiful airy home with vintage furniture as well as modern pieces. I personally love the combination of the wood and white.

A SCANDINAVIAN STYLE RETREAT IN AUSTRALIA

flop-house-est-2

This beautiful guest house in Kyneton, Australia, was once a harpsichord studio. The Flop House as it is called offers rustic chic accommodation, featuring work by local artists & designers and exquisite textiles from around the world. Owner Genevieve Wearne purchased the house in 2008 and gave the old building a Finnish summer house inspired makeover. The pitched roof and exposed wooden beams are what drew Genevieve to the house initially, in spite of the home having effectively been left to perish. The result is a beautiful small retreat, one that I will definitely put on my list of places to stay when I’m in Australia! The photographer of these beautiful images is Tara Pearce and the article was feature in Est Magazine.
