We’re up to our eyeballs in snow here in Ottawa, and the -30ish temps are getting really old and wearing me out. I’m constantly dreaming of warmer climates and sunshine so it seems fitting I share this beautiful beachy home in Cap Ferret, France with you. It belongs to decorator Sylvie Langaud (Paule-M) and her husband and is where I long to be right about now.
An asteroid may have crashed into the Yucatán Peninsula at Chicxulub many, many years ago but this beachside residence in the same town by Mexican designer Sofía Aspe packs just as much punch. (I know. I know. Lousy pun.) Chic and sophisticated yet relaxed with a touch of rustic. Right now I’m daydreaming of sipping cool drinks in the seaside cabana.
Not your typical beach apartment but then again Cobalto Studio are not your typical interior designers. The Barcelona-based firm is equally as talented when it comes to art direction, set design, event concept design and prop styling. The apartment has a zen-like, rough luxe feel while paying homage to the traditional Spanish vernacular. Definitely not your mass produced holiday let look.Perfect for your stylish seaside getaways.

There is a verve, a spark to the work of Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva Architetti, that minimalism loaded with colour and personality but remaining true to the history of the building and the site that is so very, very Italian. Perched high above the sparkling blue waters of Capri is a hotel with not just amazing views but inspiring interiors, a perfect example of this style of Italian modern minimalism.

Is it the weekend yet? If your week is going the way my week is heading then we both might need to escape to a coastal hideaway. As much as we feature high end luxury on the blog secretly I love something a little more simple, a little more laid back. This renovation of a holiday home in France’s Cap Ferret by Atelier Delphine Carrère is my idea of the perfect, simple yet chic getaway.
