A STUNNING RENOVATED FARMHOUSE ON IBIZA

vt_31_bk_07-2014_ibiza_voormalige_boerderij_01

This stunning modern rustic home is located on Ibiza, an island belonging to the Balearic Islands of Spain. The (very lucky!) owners have been visiting the beautiful island for years spending their holidays here. When they got the change to buy a run down old farmhouse they jumped at the opportunity without hesitation. Their aim was to create a home with had an authentic and pure vibe and in my opinion they very well succeeded in accomplishing their goal. Such a beautiful place, on a beautiful island!

AN ECLECTIC MODERN HOME IN DENMARK

ec1

Karen May’s beautiful home is filled with vintage furniture, flea market finds and objects found outside on the sidewalk. In fact almost anything you see is recycled. Karen May, who shares her home with her husband Ash and their four children, can not believe the beautiful and useful things people throw away. The result is a unique and eclectic home. I love the boucherouite rugs that are used a wall hangings. If you are after a boucherouite rug, I have two beautiful vintage rugs for sale from my personal collection. I once bought three rugs as I could not choose but I am using only one. Contact me if you are interested and I can send you photos and more details.

A BEACH COTTAGE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

beach-cottage-1

These images of a beautiful beach home scream summer to me. This lovely cottage on the beaches of Sydney belongs to stylist/photographer Sarah, who lives here together with her husband and their three kids. Their story is inspiring. They moved from London to Australia in 2005 and are now living the ‘Australian dream’. Having been to Australian a few times myself I know the lifestyle and I sometimes dream about a life in this beautiful country too. Perhaps one day… For now I just enjoy these images of Sarah’s beautiful cottage.

I love summer and I love white, and these two go so very well together. A casual white shirt paired with denim, or a simple white dress, is the perfect summer outfit. And with a splash of white in your interior you are not only adding light to your home but it also give a crisp and clean look. Today’s post is my ‘ode’ to white and to summer. Enjoy!
