White and wood and sea

I couldn't think of a more beautiful place to live. The solidity of the white home facing a relentless grey sea. Timbers aged the colour of the waves and sky. Simple furnishings and fittings belie the everyday luxury. Just enough of everything to make life sweet and always that view taking your breath away. Martin Gómez Arquitectos ... again. South American design is blowing me away at the moment. Simply stunning. La Aduana, La Barra, Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Oh what an idyllic place...

I know I can spend hours sitting there and stare at the sea.

I love the simplicity and easy feel of the interiors.

...beautiful, breathtaking! A wee quibble though: Stunning marble kitchen worktop/splashbacks, funky shelf overhead, cool pottery, ugly square white tiles? Get em off, ruining the look! Plain, chalk white, walls matching the ceiling please! Otherwise this is as close to perfection as one could ever get!

This is what I want "home" to feel like!

Wouahhhh. Sublime.
Merci pour ce rĂªve de maison.

Jo, I also found the white outside and inside of this home to be the perfect backdrop for the most precious and breathtaking element.....the sea.

I had saved the first photo of the chairs overlooking the sea and that lighting.....takes the breath away...and the bathroom and kitchen as my dream spaces. The use of white and the open shelves in both rooms with touches of color are luxurious to me.
