Laid back, stylish and at one with its natural surrounds. An easy-going family home at Andernos-les-Bains in southwestern France perfect for entertaining friends (when we can do that again). Formerly a fisherman’s hut it’s now the perfect spot for indoor/outdoor living. Green Villa by Paris-based Maison Particulière.
This Palm Beach holiday (the new term is “occasional”) home is no beach shack. Six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three kitchens were just the start of what was redesigned in this sprawling 80s home. Sydney interior designer Tamsin Johnson has drawn on materials such as stone, timber and rattan with an eclectic mix of vintage and bespoke pieces in blues and neutral hues.
It’s a bright and colourful take on the beach shack without the cliches. Comfortable, uncluttered, and beautiful. Think small footprint with everything for the two of you to live large. After all, it’s the Love Shack by New York and Sarasota based Ellen Hanson Designs.
White on white with natural elements, Mediterranean accents, the blue of the sky and sea, treasures from travels. It all comes together in the coastal holiday home of interior designer Carlos Serra of Mercader de Indias. Light, bright and cool.
