Like your Umbrian getaway house a little more contemporary, a little less vintage? This stone farmhouse (the owner’s grandparents home) has been sensitively renovated into a modern home without losing any of its charm. Now you are faced with a difficult choice, house 1 or house 2? Perhaps we could do both. San Pellegrino via Special Umbria.
Modern and minimalist under the Tuscan sun, this traditional stone house with a clean lined contemporary interior is the perfect getaway. A stylish holiday home by Stephanie Thatenhorst.
You know what I’m going to say don’t you? If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it helps, oh it certainly helps, if it’s somewhere stylish. The Horse in Manly, Sydney (oh the watches and leather goods!) by Triibe.
My summer will be consumed with landscaping tasks which has me both excited and terrified (given my lack of experience in this area). The inspiration I have been finding online has been incredibly helpful, and one such source is Daniel Shea, an award-winning garden designer from Hertfordshire, England. Mostly modern outdoor spaces but not at all minimalist and I love that his plantings are kept a bit wild. Bring on summer!
Let’s tick off our ultimate apartment check list. Large rooms with exposed timber beams and steel framed windows. Killer art collection. Pierre Jeanneret chairs. Expansive terrazzo floors and for added impact a monolithic terrazzo kitchen island. Have we forgotten anything? Oh yes! A Paris address. Rue Galilée by Bernard Dubois Architects
