Kuća Kamena

It's Wednesday. The middle of a long working week. Hump day. Need a little daydream to make it through the day, the week? Time to take a virtual holiday to the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. To a simple stone house, to Kuća Kamena in Novigrad (of Croatia's four Novigrads this one is the one that is famous for not being famous). To the home of artist and designer Boris Kajmak and, if you like, yours for a little while. Rustic beauty in a beautiful part of the world.

Dobrodošli u Prugu

All the hard work is done. The doors are open. Guests are arriving. Welcome to Pruga, two acres of peace and quiet and bed and breakfast. After many years in the UK, Andrijana and Vanja returned to Croatia, to the idyllic countryside of Istria, to just outside the tiny village of Lovrinići. Blood, sweat and tears and finally they created a beautiful stone building containing two apartments for guests, a lovely pool for hot summer days and all the tranquility one could want. Oh and the bars and restaurants that abound in this part of Croatia. More on their website and you can follow their progress on their blog.

DAR612

Contemporary architecture from Croatia. Family run firm DAR612 create family homes. From concept to completion the approach is holistic and the resulting homes all about shared space. Today I am featuring two apartment renovations that put the client, families, in the centre of the design. The family home is a stage for the rituals of everyday life, to share the precious times without being "precious" or over conceived. Bright, liveable, fun and friendly. A great canvas for the family's personality. Although I'm concentrating on interiors today (this is an interiors blog remember) don't miss their new build family homes for more inspiration.

A German home (from a Croatian magazine)

Here is a peek at a home once again from Croatian magazine moja 4 zida (Thanks again Sanja!). This one is actually located in the Bavarian hills of Germany and designed by architects Ippolito Fleitz Group. The views are incredible and easily enjoyed through huge windows. (Photos: Bruno Helbling)
