Aqua Di Mykonos

Posted on Sun, 17 Jul 2016 by KiM

Who wants to join me in Mykonos? Dream vacation anyone?! The folks of mykonosestates.com real estate agency sent along photos of Aqua di Mykonos, a luxury villa near Agrari Beach that contains 4 independent structures – a main house, a pool house, a guest house and a kids/staff house. Not to mention the incredible pool and Jacuzzi with views to die for. What I would do to stay here….and Jo could join and we’d finally hang out in person together (about time I’d say, it’s been 10 years). The dream continues… 

Summer feels

Posted on Sun, 3 Jul 2016 by KiM

This beautifully renovated home located in Ciutadella de Minorca, Spain makes for an ideal spot to spend the hot summers. Bright whites, tile and stained concrete floor, rustic architecture and casual furnishings have me wanting to pack my bags. This no-nonsense, leave-your-flip-flops-on decor is so inviting. *sigh* Via Micasa.  

A mountain cabin in Northern Italy

Posted on Fri, 1 Jul 2016 by KiM

My mother is from Northern Italy and it is at the top of my travel wish list to visit (I was there once, too long ago to remember). When the opportunity does arise, I want to stay RIGHT HERE. This mountain cabin by architect Alfredo Vanotti is one of the most incredible homes I have ever seen – inside and out. A mix of concrete and wood surrounded in stone, with a magnificent view of the Italian Alps….I die. (Photos: Marcello Mariana)

And to my fellow Canadians, HAPPY CANADA DAY!
