Rising like a rocky outcrop on the sandy dunes this stylishly designed guesthouse at Yzerfontein, South Africa is an oasis of calm, a dark cave providing protection from the glare of the sunlight and howl of the wind while opening to the stunning sea views. Understated luxury perfect for a beach getaway. Olive Tree Villa by Gavin Maddock.
The home of landscape designer Will Dangar, architecture by Andrew Burges and interiors curated by David Harrison and Karen McCartney of Design daily, it’s a design dream and you can stay there. Bismark House, a four bedroom urban oasis minutes walk from Bondi Beach is the ultimate Sydney experience. Now we just have to wait for the borders to open.
This home is everything that would never come to your mind when you think of a townhouse in New York City. Exposed wood ceilings, extra wide wood floors, painted brick, concrete walls, steel and wood staircase, linen curtains, a stone tub…..this is everything you want in a raw, natural, earthy, wabi-sabi, zen-like retreat. I am in complete awe of the architecture and the incredibly well curated collection of furnishings. Designed by David Cafiero. (Photos: Stephen Kent Johnson)
Minimal, sleek, modern, neutral, simple. la SHED Architecture is one of my favourite architecture firms. They take the beauty of the Canadian landscape, and showcase it with clean, simple designs that blur the lines of interior and exterior regardless of the season. This home on Lac Saint-Pierre in Trois-Rivières, Québec is simply beautiful.
Villa Castelluccio is a restored villa located in the heart of Puglia, Italy, set within 5 acres of olive groves. Designer Andrew Trotter was brought on to assist with renovations and interior design of this beautiful home which is available as a rental vacation property. Sign me up!!! This would be such a relaxing, calming space to spend time in, while enjoying the traditional Puglian architecture.
