Rove Concepts


A wee, white shed by the sea in the Èze region of France. It may be small in size but it's big on style. Piano on the deck anyone? Cabanon by Monaco-based architectural duo Humbert & Poyet.


Scandinavian-style guest house in Poland

If modern minimalism is something you're into, which I am because sometimes I just need something that is easy on the eye, then I think you'll dig this guest house in Chociwle, Poland designed by Loft Kolasiński. With a Scandinavian, mid-century feel this dwelling is a tad masculine, a touch funky and a smidge hip. What a cool collection of furnishings from the 30's, 50's, 60's and 70's from Italy, France, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Poland - including a polish HI-Fi stereo from the 80's. I want those sofas soooo badly. (Photos: Karolina Bąk

Rancho Mirage

I'm seriously envious of this weekend getaway. Would you want to leave? Rancho Mirage by Newport Beach based interior designer Brittany Stiles.

Light, bright and spacious with finishes that are perfect for relaxed family living. Seaside simplicity.

More pets on furniture....essentially I can't keep them off! This I call Dane Jenga. Finnegan and Pearl. (Both rescues. Because Pearl is deaf and blind, Finnegan is her "assistance dog". The most patient dog you would ever meet!)

Sometimes all you see is a lump or feet sticking out! Faux fur throw providing warmth for Mr Biggles.
