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!
Why stop at one post when you can have two? More loveliness by Marie-Laure Helmkampf.
Is your week dragging on like mine? Even though the hump day has passed does it still feel like you are wading waist deep in molasses? If the answer is yes then it’s time for a virtual getaway to the Greek island of Rhodes, to the latest hip and happening, bohemian lifestyle, fun in the sun, über stylish holiday resort. Welcome to Casa Cook. After you’ve checked in and thrown your bags in your room I’ll meet you by the pool.
Magda of Euro Style Interior Design based in Chicago sent along some photos of a bathroom design she recently completed and it is stunning! Such incredible, warm textures. The scoop: My clients wanted to create a bathroom where they can relax after long work hours. Where they can spend time together and enjoy soaking tub time. This design includes rustic and modern elements mixed together, what brings interest to this bathroom. Focal wall of the bathroom is the definitely free standing tub with beautiful wood tiles behind. Bathroom vanity is custom made and designed in collaboration with the client to accomodate their needs.
If my last post had you averting your eyes in horror perhaps something more monochromatic, more soothing is in order. If you prefer your colour limited to discrete pops and not as a rollicking riot then this home on the Rue St Sauveur, Paris may be more to your liking. Sensual sophistication tempered by rustic chic and artisan industrial by Patricia Miyamoto Architecture.
