WEEKEND ESCAPE: A BEACH COTTAGE IN EAST SUSSEX, UK

wyn5

This lovely beach cottage in Winchelsea, East Sussex (England) is for rent. There are three bedroom which makes the cottage suitable for up to 10 guests. A great place to spend a family holiday (Winchelsea beach is nearby)! The shabby chic beach style decor with a slight industrial touch works really well I think. You can find more information about this house on the website of Big Cottage Company.

THE FASHION FILES: CAFTANS FROM TWO NEW YORK

twony7

Last year I started my resolution to be a more “conscious consumer’. This means buying less (mass produced) stuff and spend more on higher quality goods. My wardrobe is a lot smaller now but I know have more beautiful fashion pieces that last longer. If you are interested you can read more about conscious consumerism here and here. One of the things I would like to have this season is a beautiful caftan (I have a thing for caftans and tunics!). I love the ones from TWO New York. It is a bit of a splurge but this will be another investment piece that will last for years. TWO is a small collection of chic and effortless tunics, caftans and dresses made locally in New York using handwoven textiles and saris from India. The collection embodies European and Indian influences evolving from the traditional sari. All items are gorgeous but my favorite caftan is the silver grey caftan in the second image. It is sold out everywhere but Barneys still have some available (I am still contemplating whether I shall buy this one – it will blow a hole in my budget though but it is so beautiful..).

A PHOTOGRAPHER’S HOME IN STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN

pap4
This beautiful 100 year old home in Stockholm, Sweden, belongs to photographers Kalle Gustafsson and Sara Bille. Their apartment is filled with vintage finds (such as the kilim rug) and Scandinavian design furniture such as the Eames chairs (image above) and Arne Jacobson’s Ant Chair and T Chair (images below). Kalle has a preference for dark wood, 40s and 50s furniture pieces and industrial lamps. While Sara is more fond of a light and airy decor. The result is a wonderful and unique blend of both tastes.

THE TRAVEL FILES: ISLETA EL ESPINO, NICARAGUA

espino1

Isleta El Espino is an island on the Lago de Nicaragua, a freshwater lake in Central America. On the island there are three holiday cabanas, a restaurant, a pool, yoga platforms, a bar and lots of places to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Birds, monkeys, breezes are the soundtrack of your visit. Because this very untouched (eco)resort is the only premises on the island, shortly after arriving you can’t help slipping into a total holiday mode. This sounds al wonderful to me. When can I go??! For more information and reservations you can visit the resort’s website or their page on Airbnb.
