Take me away. Lift me out of my desk chair and fly me across the world to this white wonder in Aldeburge, Suffolk by Azman Architects. To a Victorian house on the pebbly beach with views over the North Sea. To a white world contained in blue shell. To another house captured through the lens of architectural photographer extraordinaire Jim Stephenson. Perfect. Perfect house, perfect shots, perfect daydream for me. Now back to work!
You loved yesterday’s sunny family beach house so much that I thought it was time for another stunning interior by Nexus Designs. A modern design within an historic Victorian era shell. The best of both worlds. White, bright with a clear clean colour palette. The project is named “Tic Tac Toe”. Look up. You may just see why.
I was fortunate to be able to escape the dreary winter weather for a bit, but for those who aren’t so fortunate, I’ve got a virtual vacation for you. This is CasasNaAreia, a magical holiday rental located in Alentejo, Portugal via Welcome Beyond. CasasNaAreia is a gorgeous retreat taking old masonry buildings and turning them into new, contemporary structures. The property with 4 double bedrooms is about the experience of living almost in an extension of the natural environment, especially when in the kitchen/dining area – which is laid out with a carpet of fine sand. Surrounded by rice paddies and umbrella pine forest, CasasNaAreia looks out onto the Sado estuary famous for its stunning sunsets, salt pans, flamingos and flocks of dolphins.
