A clothes rail used to be an inexpensive way to store you clothes but now it is not only a storage tool but it has become a an eye-catcher as well. You can find a simple rail at IKEA (the rack in the fourth images is from IKEA) or you can buy a beautiful designed rail. The latter ones are often used as styling objects storing only your most beautiful pieces of clothing. If you are handy, you can also create your own rack. There are various diy tutorials to be found online (for example here and here). Don’t worry if you are not much into diy projects, there a plenty of racks on the market. For example the minimalistic designed rails from Anna Leena.
In a serie of six posts I will be taking you on a tour around my home. All photos are shot by the lovely & talented Paulina Arcklin. Today we kick off with the bathroom. On one side there is a large walk in shower and on the other side we have two wash basins (from Duravit). The bath is in the middle of these two areas. We have chosen white walls (no tiles) and large brown floor tiles to create a calm and serene atmosphere. The large pendant is from David Thrubridge, the hamam towels/foutas, copper hamam bowls and the wooden stool are all from Le Souk. Next week I will be showing our living room!
Villa Scrubby Bay is a working farm and luxury holiday escape (suitable for up to 14 people) nestled between the rolling hills of Annandale, New Zealand. In this amazing and isolated location, it would be easy to imagine yourself one of the early pioneers but for the modern comforts to be found in the luxurious cedar-clad beach house. The man behind this unique destination is Mark Palmer, who was born and raised on a New Zealand sheep farm, and has always dreamed of sharing a property like Annandale, which captures what is real and unique about New Zealand. His vision has resulted in a striking harmony between land and architecture, where rugged beauty and ultimate luxury rub shoulders, evoking a strong sense of belonging, providing guests with an authentic setting in which they tailor their own experience and make their own enduring memories.
As I am redecorating my home office I spend a lot of time searching the web for inspiring work spaces. That’s how I stumbled on Aran’s studio in Seattle, USA. Aran, who is a food photographer, will not only work from here but she also will be hosting food styling and photography workshops in this inspiring space. If you would like to see more of Aran’s work, you can visit her blog Canelle et Vanille and her shop.
Danish interior design company OYOY has just launched their new Autmn/Winter collection. New is MINI OYOY, a collection beautiful items for children and playful souls. Inspiration for the new OYOY collection was found within the Hopi people and their fabulous patterns which gives the new designs a beautiful ethnic touch. OYOY’s vision is to design functional products in high quality materials with beautiful colours and shapes. They are inspired by the classic, Scandinavian style, adding undertones of simple, Japanese design and a passion for combining colour and materials. The result is a unique blend of simplicity and colourful design.
Before Louis Galliussi got his hands on this Ibiza property, it used to be an old farmhouse which was in ruins. Can Kaki, as the finca is called, was extensively renovated and is now as beautiful home. The interior is tastefully decorated with natural materials but also unexpected objects such as the fishing net in the living room. Also the outdoor areas are stunning, Louis even created a beach with fine sand from neighboring island Formentera.
