Isabel López-Quesada encore

I love the portfolio of Spanish designer Isabel López-Quesada. Love. I needed inspiration to start the week. I knew I would find it on her website. Rustic yet elegant. Casual and real but steeped with history and a sense of place. Here a dream house in Biarritz, France.

Where in the world?

Morocco? Not quite. Just across the Mediterranean in Italy. Il Convento di Santa Maria di Constantino, Marittima in Puglia. I love the relaxed vibe of these shots by Australian award winning photographer Greg Elms.The light is soft and lovely, the colours rich (orange walls anyone?), the photographs intimate and revealing. Just a quickie to share Greg's wonderful work.


The best of both worlds

One minute I love modern...and the next minute I love rustic. Every now and then I come across a home that has both, but this home is pretty much the extreme of what is modern and rustic. It is located in Jaffa, Tel Aviv and from what Google translator told me, it is at least a century old and has been restored and modernized. I am taken with the juxtaposition of the stone arches with the polished concrete floors and sleek cabinetry and furnishings. (via Mimdap)

The house at ...

... Hautefage. Take a 19th century farmhouse right in the heart of France. Original beams, old weathered floors, terracotta and thick stone walls. Excited yet? Add design classics and bespoke fittings. Be a little cheeky, a touch unexpected. Throw in amazing food and wine and be prepared to be amazed. Boutique hotels are always something just a little special. Medieval village meets mid century. Lavender, rosemary, dining al fresco, cobblestone streets and rolling fields. It's almost torture not being there. The House at Hautefage.

Old Villa

I've got another London location home beauty for you today, thanks to the folks at Shoot Factory. This one is called Old Villa, and old it certainly is. A little rough around the edges (is that a hole in the bathroom floor?) and a bit more traditional than we typically post but I love it for those qualities. My only beef is that gorgeous porcelain kitchen sink stuck in a corner, mounted on a rickety looking table. ODD. And how annoying if you've got a pile of dishes to do.
