A pool house and natural pool in England

Posted on Mon, 26 Jul 2021 by KiM

Sweet jeezus this is the pool of my dreams!!! I’ve always loved pools that have a “natural” look to them and this one is spectacular! The gorgeous pool house being a bonus. Water Artisans constructed the combined pond and swimming pool using a BioTop swimming pond system. It is 2.5m in the deeper end, with a concrete base laid down the length of the pool. It has wildlife friendly aquatic planting around the edges and uses a completely chemical free filtration system, which means it is easy to maintain and has low running costs. The pool relies on the sun and temperature to keep it warm. The contoured curved meadows adjacent to the pool are landscaped to encourage biodiversity and also protect the pool from prevailing winds.

A backyard oasis

Posted on Sun, 25 Jul 2021 by KiM

I have backyards on the brain as my husband and I continue to work on ours with seemingly never ending projects. Yesterday I finally painted out our white garage/shed and the difference is incredible (you can check it out here). I love this backyard with lots of hardscaping elements which is what we did alot of in our backyard to keep the maintenance (and watering) down. This is perfect for a family and entertaining.

Intricate tile floors, an adorned olive wood parquet, crystal ball staircase ornaments, a solid piece marble sink, and much more – all of the original details have been kept and carefully restored. What a stunner!

This home is a work of art. The juxtaposition of the ancient farmhouse structure with the modern, minimalist design of the interior is breathtaking. Designed by Barcelona-based design gallery and interior design advisory office Miquel Alzueta Projects.

Terra-cotta, mustard, green and blue

Posted on Tue, 20 Jul 2021 by KiM

Terra-cotta, mustard, green and blue – such a beautiful array of colours. Since painting my dining room terra-cotta it’s one of my favourite wall colours and to walk into a home and immediately be surrounded by it….*sigh*. This entire home I just want to eat it up – especially the yellow kitchen. Not a single white wall in sight. And I’m not at all mad at that. Another to die for home designed by Reath Design.
