Interior of the Week (and Holiday Home Envy) – Villa Kalos

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!

A beautiful Country Farmhouse redesigned by London based design practice Retrouvius. You’ll find many of their design projects on the front covers of home and decoration magazines. They also have a fabulous warehouse full of reclaimed materials and furniture, definitely worth a look!

New Autumn Collection

Well firstly I must apologise for my silence, it’s been extremely hectic what with working on our new collection, working with a community project (more on that in the next post), another very exciting idea which I’m bursting to tell you about but I have to keep under wraps for now and lastly, getting ready for christmas!

As for the new collection, it’s mostly up on the website for you to browse and buy.  It’s a collection of furniture items I’ve found; some new, some old and some made to order, more homewares and accessories. They’ll be a few more items to add later but if I say so myself, I think it’s looking pretty good…..

 

All of the images were taken by Yeshen Venema in The Old Bakehouse Studios of Art , Barnes.

P.S. We’re having problems with our website at the moment. Will hopefully have it sorted by the end of the day.

 

Interior of the Week

This is Hanne and Søren Berzant’s Danish apartment near Copenhagen.  It’s absolutely stunning, and no wonder since Hanne owns the company By Nord. Although it’s minimal in colour it’s full of beautiful modern design.  In this case less is more; it’s simple, not- too- over- styled- look is just right, and although it’s very spacious, for me it’s still looks relaxing, welcoming and friendly.  With added hints of Scandinavian design this is my perfect apartment.

It seems to be all about the lighting but since most people don’t have access to electricity in their gardens, I believe this may be the perfect alternative…

Collect all your jam jars and bunch them together in either a basket or use metal wire  like the pic above and hang them from trees.  You could either use battery operated fairy lights or use tea light candles… it could look spectacular!
