A newly built home on the Oregon coast

Posted on Mon, 3 Oct 2022 by KiM

I am smitten with this Oregon coast newly built home designed by Anne McDonald. All of the wood and natural materials used throughout, and the earthy colour palette make this home so warm. Happy to see it’s not your typical beachy blue and white theme (bleh).

A 1901 villa for sale in Spain

Posted on Sun, 2 Oct 2022 by KiM

In the small town of O Porirño, Pontevedra, we find this unique property dating back to early 1901, finished in great detail by the Galician architect Jenaro de la Fuente Dominguez. One inside Villa Florida, the mansion offers historical artistry. There are 2 levels of space, high ceilings measuring almost 5 metres high and historic mosaic tile flooring, stonework and carpentry. We have the living area on the main floor, with a grand dining room leading to the back garden, the sitting lounge, the living room, a large kitchen, a study/library, and the grand stairway to the first floor. On the first floor, we find the sleeping area. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 shared bathrooms, a dressing and ironing room and a large exterior terrace. On the rear side of the building, there is an extensive green area in which there was an English and a French garden in the golden days of this Villa Florida, of which there are still signs. It offers large trees, plants, and lovely exterior spaces that can be enjoyed today. Aside from needing a major overhaul of the kitchen and bathrooms, this 460m² home is incredibly beautiful. For sale via Lucas Fox for €1,850,000

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself to work on a weekend then it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Hawthorn Studio by Wallis Design.
