Earthy vibes in Ibiza

I have warm, paradise-style locations on my mind as my winter holiday to Puerto Vallarta is booked and I am already sick of this dark, gloomy and cold weather. This island getaway in Ibiza has me dreaming about all the things I miss in winter and makes me want to cry it is so beautiful. Natural and earthy, rustic and raw, textured and tranquil. Designed and styled by Berlin-based Annabell Kutucu. (Photos: Steve Herud)

Ibiza idyll

Monday already? Where did the weekend go? If I had my way I'd be on permanent vacation in this colourful and quirky home in Ibiza by interior decorator Luis Galliussi. Just looking at these pictures puts a smile on my face. So much fun. Can you imagine what it would be like to actually be there? That will be my happy thought as I face the coming week.

Birdie Farm

I came across the Instagram account of Lucy Rose of the blog Birdie Farm recently and was instantly taken with how absolutely homey, cozy and gorgeous her home is. She creates the most beautiful vignettes with a distinctive rustic tone, which works perfectly in her rustic Colorado home. Now if she were a bit more south I'd be banging down her door begging to move in! Go give her a follow if you aren't already, and prepare yourself to fall in love.

Runaway to Morocco

Come take my hand. We'll close our eyes and click our heels and be magically transported to 5 Columns, a beautifully restored 18th Century house in the heart of the Essaouira Medina, Morocco. If only it was that easy to escape the slow dragging drudgery of Fridays at work.

A magical 160 year old home in Cape Town

As soon as I spotted this 1854 Cape Dutch home (located in Montagu, Cape Town) featured in Visi, I knew there was something magical about it. And when I read the story, I realized I was right. As the homeowners tell it: "For a year before we started renovating, I spent every weekend sleeping on a mattress on the floor of the empty entrance hall. It was important to do this, because only then did I hear the house. I could hear her breathe. I could hear the creaking of the wood, the sounds the pipes make, how the wind whispers through the rooms and where she ached. And in doing so I realised that ours would have to be a historical renovation; it wasn’t so much what we wanted the house to be but rather what it should be." You can read the rest of the story here. (Photos: Micky Hoyle)
