One of my favourite things to do at the weekend is to browse around 
architectural salvage shops and yards, looking for a gem in the rubble. 
 I went to a lovely place in Bath, UK this week and was totally inspired
 by their lovely white, rustic space.  Here are a few shots for you to see...

Here are some beautiful shots of interior stylist Katarina Grunstömers
summer house.  As featured in Skona Hem this month, Katarina has
been renovating and enlarging this house to perfection since 2002 and
 has filled it will a great collection of personal pieces....a huge difference
 from the tiny little house with a loo in the garden!


Another summer house....

Oooh I just love Saturdays....sleeping til late, long leisurely breakfast and plenty of fresh coffee....mmmm.  I am also dreaming about my eventual summer retreat and wondering where it might be....

Here is some some of my inspiration - a simple, primitive and beautiful cabin on the Danish island of Zealand (no running water or computers...) where the owners can really escape their hectic lives and get back to nature (featured in Elle Decoration UK this month).

.....and a beautiful wooden cottage by the sea, not far from the woods or by the sea?....hmm decisions, decisions.....


Summer retreats

So my boyfriend and I have just returned from a lovely escape to the 
South of France where we set up house in the woods by the lake in 
the very cool campsite Les Ormes.  We had a great time relaxing, 
reading and of course eating yummy french food...

As you can see they have really made this place beautiful, they have
 mixed up the styles perfectly - lots of Grey, which I love!  It was
 such an inspirational place to stay.

Camping in France

I just came across this church in the Czech Republic (designed by Jakub
 Berdych from Qubus Studio) What a great mix of old and new!  I have
 these chairs on my terrace but they look even more beautiful in this setting
 with a cross punched into the back....and I love the Eames chairs that they
 have put at the front for the clergy.
