Remove yourself from the modern world with an escape to a medieval watchtower overlooking the Carpini valley in Umbria, Italy. Secluded valleys, breathtaking vistas and a 12th century building lovingly restored with a minimalist bent. Mighty stone and wood marry with steel and glass while luxurious but minimalist furnishings reflect an austere past but a hedonist present. Moravola.
“The mind slips sideways a haven away from the modern world, the body unwinds as senses reawaken.”
I’d like to introduce you to a unique bed & breakfast, that happens to be a renovated 18th century sheepfold located in the heart of Provence. The rustic beauty of La Bergerie de Nano is breathtaking. I don’t really understand where the idea for the kitchen came from but I adore the rest of this stunning piece of history.
When I stumbled upon the portfolio of interior designer Marie-Laure Helmkampf I instantly fell in love. Located in the South of France, Marie-Laure has designed some spectacular rustic homes that are so incredibly dreamy. Her neutral colour stories, natural fabrics and modern mixed with classic furnishings and fixtures is perfection. I could live in any of these spaces exactly as they are.
I am in love with this house. The rustic/modern mix is gorgeous. Those beamed ceilings and hardwood floors are phenomenal. Yes, I could easily and happily live here. Forever. (Via Le case di Elixìr)
A tiny 1840 colonial terrace in Darlinghurst, Sydney. All that wonderful old sandstone. I just want to run my fingers across its rough hewn surface. My love of old houses continues and I always squeal when I find an old beauty when I’m real estate stalking. And the interiors? In my fantasy (there is always a story that I concoct about the unknown sellers) the house is cool bachelor pad. Rough hewn and a little retro with golden brown tones and an intriguing history. The house. I’m talking about the house. The bachelor? Hmmm…… Link here while it lasts.
