This beautiful house is ideally located in the heart of the souk in Taroudant, Morocco. It belongs to landscape architects Arnaud and Eric Maurières Ossart who divide their time between Mexico and Taroudant. When they discovered the building it was completely neglected but they transformed it into a beautiful home. All decorative objects are made by local craftsmen. Arnaud and Eric also own Dar Al Hossoun which is the first and only eco-garden lodge and restaurant in Morocco, on the outskirts of Taroudant. It is a fully licenced luxury boutique hotel. This modern estate was entirely built by local artisans using natural materials and ancestral techniques such as rammed earth. It is surrounded by hundreds of acres of olive groves and agricultural fields.

I’m loving this beautiful country kitchen in a Swedish garden cottage. It looks so warm and cozy. To get this country style you can use copper pans, a (vintage) butcher table and rustic wooden chopping boards. Similar chopping/bread boards are available from Le Souk. These are handmade by artisans in the north of The Netherlands. Perfect for serving and presenting beautiful food!

A SUMMER HOME WITH VIEWS ON LAKE GARDA, ITALY

This stunning private holiday home in Italy has gorgeous views on Lake Garda. The house, designed by German architect Titus Bernhard, is built on a steep slope about 300 metres above the west shore of the lake. The old ‘rustico’ was rebuilt with traditional dry-stone walls in order to keep the original character and for the building to fit into the surrounding landscape. A spectacular infinity pool was added to the site. The result is a sophisticated home with a rustic atmosphere.
