Domus Civita

"I thought that I would let you know that we have just added a simply stunning new property in Italy to our collection - it opened in August 2012 ...

Here a short description: The 14th century home is located in Civita di Bagnoregio, a medieval town only accessible by a pedestrian bridge. The house itself sits on top of Etruscan caves and tombs and a beautiful Roman water cistern, all of which are accessible from inside the house and open onto a beautiful hanging garden 4 stories down and through the cliff. There is a heated pool inside one of the largest caves and a unique wine cellar for guests inside the roman water cistern. The whole setting is simply amazing - please view the images attached below."

Welcome Beyond

Stop it Chris. Stop messing with my head and my wandering heart. Another stunning getaway to add to my list. My "longing"list ... longing to escape, longing to runaway and live forever in a 14th century home in an Italian village only accessible by foot bridge. Longing to step back in time and longing to enjoy the luxury. Domus Civita via Welcome Beyond

Medieval minimalism

Remove yourself from the modern world with an escape to a medieval watchtower overlooking the Carpini valley in Umbria, Italy. Secluded valleys, breathtaking vistas and a 12th century building lovingly restored with a minimalist bent. Mighty stone and wood marry with steel and glass while luxurious but minimalist furnishings reflect an austere past but a hedonist present. Moravola.

"The mind slips sideways a haven away from the modern world, the body unwinds as senses reawaken."

Beam me up

I am in love with this house. The rustic/modern mix is gorgeous. Those beamed cielings and hardwood floors are phenomenal. Yes, I could easily and happily live here. Forever. (Via Le case di Elixìr)

Attic apartment

I adore this apartment. Designed by b-arch (Jo blogged this firm recently here and here), this was formerly the attic and kitchen spaces of an eighteenth-century building renovated to make an open-space loft. I love the stairs (although not to code by Canadian standards), the flat file cabinet, the globe collection, the huge sign in the kitchen, the LIGHT BLUE SMEG!!!, colourful tomato cans, Jielde light fixture (I have 2 of those!), huge vintage map as a headboard. And then there's all the white...and those floors....

Rustic in Italy

A huge thanks to Deb who sent us a link to an Italian magazine "Le case di Elixìr". They feature gorgeous homes in several styles they call shabby chic, meltin' pot, classic and contemporary. I am most definitively drawn to the rustic, "shabby chic" homes in Italy that speak of history. I found one that made my heart melt. This is how I always imagined living in Italy (it's been a dream of mine forever, as my mom is Italian), in a rustic villa with stone/brick walls and floors and wooden beams, with bits of modern furnishings thrown in for shock factor. This villa is going to haunt me (delightfully) for a long time.
