This holiday home is located on the idyllic Balearic island of Formentera, Spain. The owners renovated this old farmhouse with respect to the island’s traditional architecture. The feeling of tranquility was achieved by using just a few furniture pieces, most of them found during their travels around the world. In general, the interior style can be defined as modern rustic with influences from the Provence and Greece but also from Argentina.

I love the colorful tiles used in countries such a Morocco and Turkey. They come in a variety is colors, shapes and patterns and I will be displaying a few in a series of posts starting today.
The blue and green shades are my favorites but the small zelliges are available in many colors (see last image).
Emerie & Cie, with shops in Belgium, France and the UK, has a large collection of Moroccan tiles.

I have posted about Katrin Aren’s home before but I found some new images of her beautiful house in Italy which fit perfectly in my summer series. Katrin has made most of the furniture herself. These gorgeous pieces are also for sale. Each piece is unique and handmade, using materials reclaimed; from derelict country houses, from cellars, and from carpentry studios.

Today I’m loving … this Playmobil coat rack. It doesn’t seem very complicated to make it yourself. All you need is wood, glue and some Playmobil puppets. A fun idea for a boy’s room!

In my opinion a bedroom should be serene and peaceful without too much clutter and bold colors. Here are some examples of bedroom that I personally like. Furniture and accessories made from natural materials such as wood, cotton, wool and linen are great to achieve a similar look.
