I have my eye on these stunning stoneware pieces from Blue Eagle Pottery, created by husband-and-wife team Robert Blue and Susan B. Galloway. These stoneware items are all handmade and glazed with white, teal, salmon, black, and brown glaze. Available from Mociun.
Today is all about Mediterranean outdoor areas. Blue sea, cozy shaded sitting areas, bright pink bougainvillea flowers, al fresco dining … I love these kind of outdoor spaces! We will be off to Italy soon and next month we will be holidaying on the Spanish island of Mallorca. So I will be getting my portion of Mediterranean bliss!
Soon I will be off to Tuscany, Italy, for a few days. We will be staying near the town of Lucca in a lovely small hotel which is well known for it’s exquisite food. I will be sharing some images when I am back but in the mean time I would like to show you another gorgeous hotel which is tucked away in the tiny Tuscan village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro. The stunning Hotel Monteverdi offers seven magnificent rooms and suites, each of them uniquely decorated with the most beautiful furnishings and art work. I especially love the rustic elements of the exposed ceiling beams and stone walls. Designer Ilaria Miani very well succeeded in combining modern furnishing with a traditions style. More information is available on the hotel’s website.
This colorful Santa Barbara beach abode belongs Gina Tolleson, a former model and Miss World 1990, and her three sons. The three bedroom family home, decorated in a nomadic chic style, is perfect for their outdoor life style. The colorful, global furnishings and textiles are sourced on Gina’s travels to India, Morocco, South America, Bali and Africa. The bright pink wall of the outdoor room (3rd image) was inspired by a 40th-birthday trip to Rajasthan. What I love most of this home is the uplifting and fun vibe it has!
This gorgeous bohemian chic home with mid century elements belongs to Elizabeth, a macramé artist (which explains the beautiful wall hangings), musician Tim McTague and their three children. The Florida house was fairly new when they moved in and did not have the advantage of an older home which often have lots of character and architectural details. But over the years the family has turned the interior into something special and unique. Vintage furniture pieces, various textiles, the guitars and the macramé hangings give the space a lot of character and personal charm. You can see and read more about this home on Design*Sponge.
To celebrate Spring I will be showing you the most beautiful outdoor spaces in the coming weeks. Loving the pops of colors of the flowers in these three settings featured in this post. I am happy to see some color again in our garden as well after months of winter (you can see our garden here)!
