B&B in France

These two eighteenth century neighbouring houses in Honfleur, France, were bought by a lawyer called Josette. She had them restored and are now linked by a patio. One of them serves as a Bed & Breakfast while the owner lives in the second one.

Hainaut river blue stone was used for the patio.

Love the monogrammed lamp shades.

Former School in Spain

Hope you had a lovely weekend, my friends.

Interior designer Mikel Larrinaga renovated this 1936 small school located in the natural park called Parque Natural de las Hoces del Alto Ebro y Río Rudrón, in Spain. He fell in love not only with the old school but with the place itself where you can find flora and fauna both from the Atlantic and the Mediterranean.

White and Vintage in Kent

Lazing on a Sunday afternoon? Nice. Now you can lazily have a look at these photographs of a seaside flat in Kent. It belongs to Anastasia Hutton-Summers, founder of The Kent Vintage Tea Party which hires vintage crockery and accessories for weddings and parties. If you'd like to read the whole article which is quite interesting just click here.

Restored 17th century Farmhouse in Spain

This 17th century farmhouse is located in Catalonia, Spain. A clever and careful arrangement of furniture and the use of natural earth tones make these huge rooms warm and welcoming.

A nice idea for a fireplace: two built in nooks at the sides for logs and a full length solid beam above it all.

Enjoy your Saturday, my friends!

White and Vintage in Melbourne

Located in a suburb of Melbourne, this former mattress factory was completely abandoned. Even with leaks in the ceilings and cracks and oil stains on the concrete floors, interior designer Lynda Gardener took up the challenge. We could call hers a recycling style. Each room shows her passion for everything vintage, lots of chandeliers (12 in all) and flea market finds.


A former cutting table from a garment factory, was recycled into the dining room table.


A courtyard was added right in the centre of the house so there is plenty of natural light in every room




When I first saw this room I thought there was a doorway at the side of the bed.


A photograph printed on a strip of wallpaper, designed by English artist Degorah Barness, hangs next to a real vintage dress.
