A vacation in Mykonos would be a dream come true. Spending it in a house like this would be EPIC! By one of my absolute favourite designers, Hubert Zandberg. A re-vamp of a project we first did years ago for one of our longstanding clients and friend, urban jewellery designer Diane Kordas. The villa is now the perfect setting for home entertaining with its touches of glamour from the 60s and 70s creating a luxurious feel, but still in keeping with the client’s desire for a clean, contemporary, casualness – a retreat of barefoot luxury.
(My last feature of Hubert’s work is here if you want to keep the eye candy flowin’!)
We all know the mansions that pass as holiday shacks in the Hamptons. For most of us they are dream houses, the stuff of fantasies. Today I’m not quite dreaming of a mansion, more of a simpler building (yes I know it’s probably in the estate of such a mansion but let me hold on to this dream just a little longer), a boho barn. Love the cerused oak walls, the block print fabrics, the kantha quilts used to upholster the sofa and how things change around the room from shot to shot. A wonderful daydream by Virginia Tupker.
It’s what I say time and time again (join me if you want) … if you have to drag your sorry self into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. Amanu West Hollywood (bespoke leather sandles while you wait) by ETC.etera.

Bohemian style is trendy all over the world, including Brazil as seen in this bright, casual home designed by Estúdio Penha. Lots of white, comfy furnishings, painted brick and sweet little courtyards have me swooning.
