It is September and autumn is about to start. Days can still be warm enough to enjoy some outdoor time on a verandah, with or without a cozy cardigan. Indoors the fire place can be lit again, to be enjoyed with a nice glass of red port. To get in Fall mood, today some autumn inspired images.
This stunning and romantic country home in Tasmania, Australia has some lovely features. The kitchen benchtop for example is made from Tasmanian oak and the cabinets are painted with old paint that owner Edwina found in the shed. Antique French doors (last image) form the main entrance to the house. And beach combing finds serve as accessories (third image).
Autumn is around the corner but before summer is definitely over I have some more beautiful summer houses to show you. Today’s home, located on the Spanish island Formentera, belongs to Marni designer Consuelo Castiglione. The bohemian chic decor is an ode to the 60′s and 70′s. The house is spread along a huge terrace partially covered with a leafy roof resting on white columns. The furniture is of electrical origin: round 60′s seats, silver metal stools designed for Marni shops, a sofa and a canopy bed brought from Java. The textiles used are exclusive Marni designs. Such a beautiful place to unwind!
This cozy family home is situated in a small street in New York City. The town house opens onto a lovely garden and offers a beautiful rooftop terrace overlooking the city. Inside there is a very European atmosphere. The owner has painted all the rooms in muted colors such as pink brown and blue-gray before furnishing the various rooms with beautiful, unusual furniture pieces and art.
I am big fan of Oeuf NY. This French/American husband and wife team creates beautiful eco friendly children’s furniture, toys, clothing and accessories. Here are some beautiful images featuring Oeuf products.
This beautifully decorated West Coast style beach cottage has the enviable position directly above the white sandy beaches of the South African coast. It is perfectly situated on the pristine shores of Langebaan Lagoon. It is just 2 hours from Cape Town but is a world away. Antique furniture and vintage fabrics, as well as collectables create a lovely ambiance. The two bedroom cottage can be rented, you can find more information about bookings and prices here.
I has featured this lovely Swedish home in a renovated school house in Hjortnäs before. You can see that post here, the house was then decorated in a winter and Christmas setting. Today’s images, which are from Rue Magazine June 2012, are more suitable for summer.
