A beautiful boho Mexican home

Have you ever been to Mexico? I once went backpacking there and still think about some of the beautiful places I visited today (Tulum was my all time favourite). Have you ever been? The home of Brittany Ambridge high up in the hills of Sayalita and overlooking the Pacific recently featured in Domino Magazine. The images took me straight back to my wonderful days in central America. I love the all white (of course!) but also the wistful bohemian touches. Brittany created most of the furniture herself and added natural materials in keeping with the surrounding nature. The boho look is making a big come back this autumn and winter, and I'm taking my inspiration from this two bedroom home!

Could you live here?!

For the full article and more images of this home check out the piece at Domino.

I think this is the first Mexican home I have shown on this blog. However I have shown a few homes from South America on here. Do you remember this beautiful beach house in Uruguay and this fabulous beach villa in Brazil?! Lest you could forget?!

The last few days I have also been enjoying a little piece of paradise myself and currently making my way around Fyn (the middle Danish island) on route to Aeroe island. It's slightly different from Mexico but beautiful in its own way. Any tips for Aeroe welcome!

Have a wonderful weekend, see you in a couple of days!

PS Thank you for your patience while I've been on holiday July. It's back to normal next week with a post every single day.

A beautiful German boat house on the baltic

As you may know, I'm a big fan of the ocean. In fact any pool of salty water will do. In the summer I always strive to be on, near (or preferably in) the sea and I love exploring the Swedish islands on both the east or west coast by sail boat. Recently my husband and I have been talking a lot about exploring the German North coast too. And then this home popped into my mail box from the owners. Located in Rugen on the shores of the German Baltic coast, Strandwood House is nestled among boat houses looking out over the harbour. But then there's the inside too - white, grey and minimal allowing the tranquil views over the water do the talking. Forget sailing, I think we'll get the ferry over and rent this space next summer!

Could you spend a summer holiday here?!

Or perhaps you're lucky enough to live on the Northern German coast yourself? In which case I'd love some tips for next summer! 

For more summer inspiration pour yourself a coffee this lovely sunny morning and scroll through these Scandinavian and international summer cottages. You'll feel like your there! 

Back to my own summer holiday - we're just leaving the beautiful Danish island of Samsoe - what a place?! The island is full of honesty shops where you can leave money for home grown fruit and vegetables, flowers and even bicycle hire. Do you have honesty shops where you live?! We're now heading South to discover other Danish islands.

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. See you in a couple of days! 

A happy Swedish home with bright colours and bold prints

Although not everyone is up for adding bright colour and bold prints to our homes there's no denying that it can add a really playful element to a home. Take this Malmö apartment as an example. The owners have used a white base (floors, walls and ceilings) and added fabulous Svenskt Tenn wallpaper, Ferm Living rugs and brightly coloured furniture and throws to create a lovely, happy family home.

Is this your kind of style, or more a space you prefer to admire from a far?

I'm getting bolder and bolder and slowly introducing more colour to my home (although friends may beg  to differ!). Do you have a lot of colours and bold prints in your home or prefer to stick to a monochrome mix?

My family and I are currently touring islands off the coast of Denmark for the second half of our summer holiday and just arrived at Samso. I'm looking forward to heading off on our bicycles to explore now......(tips welcome!)

Have a lovely day, I hope the sun is shining where you are too!
