I don’t know about you but I’ve been day dreaming about the sun ALL month. Since this is going to be staying a dream for quite sometime, I got researching my dream holiday home and I stumbled across Villa Kalos in Greece and turned green with envy! Take a look at this….
It’s in the perfect location overlooking the stunning countryside of Lahos in Ithaka. The owners, Gerda Genis and Robbert Koene, have beautifully decorated and restored what was once a ruin and now let it out over the summer! It has four bedrooms, all of which have a en suite and a large swimming pool to cool off. Have a look at their website, I imagine it get’s snapped up pretty quick so get booking!

I bought this whilst on a weekend trip to Devon. I haven’t seen anything quite like it, it’s very low sitting and the back goes back so you could just drift off to sleep by the fire…
It needed a bit of a clean up and I couldn’t wait to get searching for new fabrics for the upholstery! I actually surprised myself because I picked out a rather glitzy fabric from Harlequin.
Usually I tend to go for the more earthy colours, leaning towards the scandinavian style but for some reason I couldn’t quite find what I was looking for until I saw this beautiful fabric from Harlequin and thought you know what, why not try something different eh? So I enlisted a local upholsterer and here is the final product. LOVE IT!
