Reader's home - Linn's mom's sunroom and patio

I've got one last reader's home to share this week. It's actually a reader's mom's home. We received this email from Linn: I recently came back after visiting family in Sweden. My mom lives on the Baltic island of Gotland where she lives in a picturesque house, and the sunroom and patio in particular are just lovely. In the sunroom there is plenty of light and she has a huge dining table with room for many, classic Swedish rag rugs on the floor as well as other comfortable furniture and nice details. The sunroom leads directly out to a stone patio where there is a cement wall with real windows that block the wind, lots of candles and lanterns, and a great view. All in all, this space is just so charming and comfortable to spend time in, I'm beyond jealous myself! I'm jealous too! I am especially fond of the huge patio with the walls that make it look like another room of the home. I would spend every moment of decent weather out there. And it's extra gorgeous with the candles and string of lights.

Phillip K Erickson, at it again

You may remember this home I blogged a couple of months ago that was submitted by photographer Phillip K Erickson. He kindly emailed to let us know about one of his latest projects, called The Maryland. As usual Phillip's awesome photography makes this relatively dark and moody home appear dramatic and SO intriguing. (I am in love with the built-in surrounding the stove).

Midcentury dream

My posts today seem to be about the view. Life would be very pleasant poolside in this Albert Frey home in Palm Springs. Fabulous photography by Jason Madara. Now where's my drink? I'll have another one please.

Stalking the endless views

Perched on the rolling hills behind the coastal playground of Byron Bay in Northern New South Wales is a recently built Queenslander style home. Verandahs circle the living space, reaching out to the view. It is all about the view. Casual, colourful, laid back. Living here would be like being on holidays all year round. I'll be taking drinks by the pool. Be a dear and bring one down to me. Link here while it lasts.

Garden of dreams

We received an intriguing submission recently from Veronica that I wanted to share. Here are some pictures about my last interior design project at Casa Decor Madrid, the most important event about interior design in Spain. Garden of dreams (Jardin de los sueños) is the name of my space. An interior garden at Casa Decor Madrid. I wanted to create an space to relax, feel and remember our experiences, a place where our emotions meet together, a place to lay or to fly. The interior is design with natural materials (linen, wood, anea and wool). All furniture, illumination, ceramics and sofa are designed by Veronica Martinez too, all inspired by nature and handmade by artisans. I think it's beautiful and very creative. I love the grouping of frames on the corner, and the strips of wood and fabric acorss the ceilings and walls are really pretty. I would love to hang out in there for hours in silence and read a good book. *sigh*
