Domus Civita

Posted on Mon, 17 Sep 2012 by midcenturyjo

“I thought that I would let you know that we have just added a simply stunning new property in Italy to our collection – it opened in August 2012…

Here a short description: The 14th century home is located in Civita di Bagnoregio, a medieval town only accessible by a pedestrian bridge. The house itself sits on top of Etruscan caves and tombs and a beautiful Roman water cistern, all of which are accessible from inside the house and open onto a beautiful hanging garden 4 stories down and through the cliff. There is a heated pool inside one of the largest caves and a unique wine cellar for guests inside the roman water cistern. The whole setting is simply amazing – please view the images attached below.”

Welcome Beyond

Stop it Chris. Stop messing with my head and my wandering heart. Another stunning getaway to add to my list. My “longing”list… longing to escape, longing to runaway and live forever in a 14th century home in an Italian village only accessible by foot bridge. Longing to step back in time and longing to enjoy the luxury. Domus Civita via Welcome Beyond

Medieval minimalism

Posted on Wed, 12 Sep 2012 by midcenturyjo

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.”

  

  

  

  

   

La Bergerie de Nano

Posted on Thu, 6 Sep 2012 by KiM

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. 

Marie-Laure Helmkampf

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)
