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.
Pardon me. I’m having a little daydream. The vaccines have brought Corona under control and we can travel again. I’ve packed my bag and hopped a plane to France. I’m in Cap Ferret and this sweet little beach shack is mine. Sigh. What a lovely, lovely daydream. Renovation of a holiday house by L’Atelier Delphine Carrère.
It’s that time of year when the husband and I start planning our winter getaway trip to Mexico. Because I’m not an ignorant idiot, that won’t be happening for the second year in a row. I suppose I’ll have make up for it with as many beautiful homes and outdoor spaces that have SUMMER written all over them. Like this gorgeous house in Orient Village, North Fork, NY designed by Elizabeth Cooper.
Pinch me. I must be dreaming. Do people really live with views like this? In houses like this? Sun and sand and surf and easy, stylish living. Perfect. Stinson Beach Home by Lauren Nelson Design.
As the summer holidays approach every self respecting Australian is daydreaming of the beach. If we’re lucky we pack our bags with sarongs and swimming suits, maybe a t-shirt or two, jump in the car and join the hoards heading to find sun, surf and sand. Think long, casual days with houses overflowing with family and friends. If you’re really, really lucky it’s a stylish getaway just like this one in the Noosa region of Queensland by CLO Studios.
