THE TRAVEL FILES: SAN GIORGO HOTEL ON MYKONOS

I have featured the San Giorgio hotel before but this hotel on Mykonos, Greece, is too gorgeous not to be featured again.. True, authentic, simple – the hotel’s interior is a collection of eclectic treasures and organic materials. Every piece of furniture is handpicked, has its spirit of simplicity and the power of craftsmanship. Just how I like it!

A CHARMING SUMMER COTTAGE IN DENMARK

summer home tia 1

It is for ten years now that Nicole, Claus and their three children have enjoyed their summers in this idyllic cottage in Tibirke, Denmark. They call both the cottage as well as their Copenhagen apartment, where they have their professional lives, home. The peaceful family summer house has not also been this charming. With persistence and hard work the couple made the run down cottage into ‘a real home’. Now the home is light and summery with old wooden furniture pieces, such as the beautiful old dining table in the kitchen/dining room.

SWEET SUMMER COLORS: SHADES OF SEAGREEN

Sea green, aqua, turquoise … for me these are the ultimate summer colors. If I ever have a beach home, I will use these colors to decorate it (together with white). I keep dreaming about this house, but in the mean time some shades of sea green for some summer inspiration.

STUNNING BEACH HOUSE CASA AZUL IN EL SALVADOR

casaazul1

I am loving this stunning summer home with touches of sunny yellow! Traditional features such as wooden beams and roof made of of palm leaves have been combined with modern, straight lines and a minimalistic decor. The beach house was designed for a young family of four at Playa Azul, close to El Salvador’s border with Guatemala. As fulltime city dwellers, the family wanted their home away from home to maintain the sensations of the beach; so architectural firm Cincopatasalgato designed their home lots of natural textures and colors, interior gardens, and transitional interior/exterior spaces.
