A bit of color on this rainy day. Have a wonderful weekend, see you on Monday!
This lovely house is located on the Greek island of Sifnos. The dry stone cottage is overlooking terraced hills and is set in the middle of olive trees. After spending his summers in Greece for years, owner Aix decided to renovate this more than a century old home and use it as a family holiday home
This kitchen is simple but oozes rustic charm.
The sofa is made of a masonry bench covered with a sheet of linen and cushions made from tea towels. Furniture and objects are from flea markets and local bazaars. And as is tradition, each year the walls are whitewashed to protect the house from heat while flooding it with light.
The original layout was preserved, with its small rooms arranged around a garden courtyard that allows everyone to move freely and live at their own pace.

Today I’m loving … the colorful designs from Tove Johansson, a Swedish designer based in Paris working in fashion, textiles and illustration.
The bold patterned tea towel (image above) can brighten up any kitchen! The cushion on the same pattern is pretty nice too..
Today I’m loving … these new designs by ixxi. With this special design called Loco by Studio Boot, you can create more than 32.642 geometric designs. This collection of modular tiles (made from synthetic paper) are available in neon yellow, pink, orange, red, green, white and warm gray. More information can be found the ixxi website.
Ochre Barn is a multi purpose development: it houses a retreat, studio space and private residential accommodation for architect Carl Turner and his partner Mary Martin. The gorgeous barn is tucked away in the rural country side of Norfolk, England.
When renovating the barn the original exterior was maintained as if it were a listed historical structure and the interior has been lined with particular attention given to highlight and expose the original bull nose brick details.
Next to Ochre Barn, a new barn (the black one) was built. It only cost about $48,000 to build, which was incredibly cheap,” says Turner. “We got the Timber Frame Company to supply the shell, then we clad it and fitted out the interior and windows ourselves.

Today I’m loving … this silk chiffon scarf from Etsy seller Leah Goren. The large scarf features a poem about California written by Chelsey Pettyjohn. Draping beautifully, the scarf can be worn in many ways – around the neck, on a bag, as a head wrap, and more.
On the Kate Spade website you can find various ways to wear a scarf.
Last year we already saw a lot of indigo popping up (see here and here). IKEA has followed this trend and they have just launched their True Blue line. This limited collection, inspired by India, contains a range of products in shades ranges from indigo to dark blue.
The True Blue collection is now available in selected IKEA stores.
Perhaps you have noticed some unusual activity on this site. The reason for this is that my blog was hacked a few days ago. Luckily it is now free from malware and the entire website is clean. Hurray, now we can go back to business as usual! Today’s post is about natural light. I have selected some images which are different from each other but they all have in common that somehow the light is beautiful.
You might think that this home is located in Morocco but it isn’t. This exotic style house is the Melbourne (Australia) home of Giovanni Mangano and Tory Flanigan.
On the walls Giovanni has used a mix of white paints to create a lime-washed effect. “With a neutral backdrop, you can try different things together and it still works,” he says.
In the dining area, the arch may look like a doorway, but it is actually a cleverly placed mirror.
The elaborate portal from Rajasthan is hundreds of years old, yet it works beautifully with the PP Møbler ‘Flag Halyard’ chair from Cult, the ‘Meditation’ wooden chair from Vixen & Velvet and the Space sofa and rug.
The master bedroom is rich with family history, thanks to the sacred heart of Jesus artwork and heirloom quilt from Giovanni’s grandmother.
Adobe-inspired walls, ornate carving and timber beams from an old Sydney woolshed set the scene for this home.
The Lumeah limestone courtyard floor adds an extra layer of texture outdoors.
