How lovely are these ceramic ring dishes from Baba Souk. The dishes designed by Emily Reinhardt are perfect for storing your rings but I think they would also look wonderful grouped together on a wall.
Another summer essential is a beautiful towel to bring to beach or park. I have the Majorelle towel from The Beach People. The beautiful pattern is inspired by the blue hues and exotic location of Yves Saint Laurent’s Moroccan Botanical gardens. Australian label The Beach People, founded in the summer of 2013, are makers of luxe sea essentials, designed to bring bliss to your sea adventures.
This cozy Danish home is an old fisherman’s cottage dating from 1830. The interior is a mix of design (Eames, Hay), vintage furniture, ethnic fabrics and modern art pieces. The white walls and light wooden floors give an airy feel.
These colorful gladiator sandals are perfect for summer! I purchased the ones in the top image (made of leather, pompoms, turquoise and corals beads, tassels) and I can’t wait for them to arrive. All Elina Linardaki’s shoes are handmade in Greece. You can visit her Etsy shop here.
Have you ever heard of a trullo? This is a traditional dry stone hut with a conical roof. The style of construction is specific to the Itria Valley, in the Murge area of the Italian region of Apulia. Trulli (plural) were generally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural laborers. Nowadays the surviving trulli are popular and are often bought and restored for general use. However, anyone wishing to restore a trullo needs to conform with many regulations as trulli are protected under the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) world heritage law. The trulli in the images here are beautifully restored by Azzurra Garzone Architects. Only traditional materials such as stone and lime have been used. Also the interior is in line with traditions.The walls are whitewashed in lime, and the flooring is made from chianche stone from the area. The furniture comes from a careful selection of local craftsmen. The bathrooms are coated with a mixture of cement and natural pigments, derived from the surrounding earth. There are several trulli in Apulia that can be rented for a holiday. Go to Pure Puglia for instance or do a Google search.
