Es Bec D’Aguila is an exquisite Mediterranean estate (or finca) located in Menorca, in the Balearic Islands and is available for weekly rental. It started out in the 19th century when a family of Menorcan merchants built it as their weekend getaway, and its current owners recently renovated it and brought it back to life. The original vaulted ceilings, handmade Cuban tiles, breathtaking landscape and gorgeous decor make this an absolute dream of a destination. (Photos: Karel Balas)
I love the eclectic mix going on in this Moscow apartment of modern, bohemian and ethnic styles. It brings together the best of everything! And the grey and white backdrop means adding any accent colour is a quick and easy change when you need a boost. Wonderfully executed by Minina Design.

Hubert Zandberg, one of my favourite designers for about as long as this blog has existed, was tasked with creating a Mediterranean melting pot for his client’s holiday home. He combined a paired-back blue and white colour scheme with a plethora of neutral textures and earthy elements. The mix of locally sourced finishes, bespoke furniture and vintage finds resulted in a relaxed home for the family to refuel in a spectacular setting – Torre Vedra, Ibiza. It is so serene and welcoming.
Is it a pop-up shop in a home or a home where you can stay and take home the sofa if you happen to love it? Why it’s both! Owner Tina Seidenfaden Busck reimagines The Apartment each year, presenting a carefully curated and continually changing collection of art and design objects from the 20th century as well as pieces by renowned contemporary designers. This year you can even book a stay. It’s my dream of living in a shop come to life. I love the evolution of The Apartment over the years and particularly this summer’s celebration of colour, pattern and different cultures.
Danish fashion designer Malene Birger should have really started her career as an interior designer. Her 1905 Italian stone house on a hillside with views of Lake Como is decorated with the most incredible maximalist, eclectic style that is blowing my mind. Black, white, brown and the most glorious ochre/mustard/spicey yellow I have ever seen, and a divinely random mix of vintage finds from flea markets and auctions around the world.
