Perhaps a Gustavian inspired home isn't you idea of the perfect place to relax. How about a stay at Les Sources de Caudalie, a hotel in France surrounded by vineyards and châteaux, offering cooking classes, wine tasting courses, and a vinotherapy spa - treatments that combine naturally warm spring water with vine and grape extracts. Oh my...sign me up!!
Everyone needs a special place to relax and unwind - be it a windowseat or a little reading corner somewhere... Well, the following home screams (in a very soft, peaceful voice LOL) serenity from every square inch. It's a whitewashed Gustavian home that is devoid of almost all colour (might drive me mad after a bit of time tho') and would be an incredible place to escape to.
Take a minimalist vibe and then layer it with unexpected traditional elements. Christina Yorkston of CYDesign explores the juxtaposition of clean and sophisticated with the bold and the luxurious. A small portfolio online but these are beautifully curated rooms. White that is elegant and crisp.
Thanks to a tip from one of our readers, it seems one of our favourite photographers Graham Atkins-Hughes has a home available to hire for photo shoots. It's stunning, with a very Abigail Ahern vibe with grey walls, intricate moldings and funky furnishings. And his photos of the spaces are fantastic as always.
