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.

Now that summer is over and I am in a fall depression, I think it is the perfect time to start thinking about warmer climates. Like that of Ibiza. This home of interior designer Virginia Nieto is bringing home the Mediterranean vibe with bright white walls, concrete floors, straw mats and light fixtures and a to-die-for outdoor space. Wow do I ever love this house!!!
A holiday home in Cap Ferret, France with serious cabin-like undertones. Wood, and some more wood reign supreme with a masculine feel here. A very neutral colour scheme and lots of leather and copper seal the deal. (P.S. I am in love with the vintage gym mat platform lounge creation in the photo above). Design: Festen Architecture.

Black and white, a surprise of old gold timber linings, enough retro classics to be cool not ostentatious, enveloping textures and the promise of a good surf break. Not your usual Hamptons holiday getaway and I for one am glad! Montauk Beach House by Space Exploration.
