An English Barn by the River Stour

Not everyone would have looked at a run down barn in Suffolk, England and seen their future home but that’s exactly what Zara Chancellor and Charles McIntyre saw when they found the old farmhouse. Situated near the River Stour, the surrounding landscape was already gorgeous and boasted spectacular vegetation and views; it was making the farmhouse a home that was the tricky part. Enlisting the help of Katherine Woollacott and Patrick Gilmartin made the transformation possible and gave Zara and Charles the family barn home they envisioned. Gorgeous work!

Gather & Build – The Bradford

I was recently introduced to Gather & Build (thanks to Pinterest “Home Decor” searches) and I am in love with their blog!! The blog features lots of great before and after pics and design ideas. I had to share their Bradford Avenue project because the final result is simple fabulousness!

Santorini Paradise!!

The Santorini home of hotelier, Costis Psychas, is about as perfect as I can imagine. First, it is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, Greece. Second, it has a history; it used to be the warehouse for  a pumice mining operation that was on the Santorini Island and part of it used to be under water. Third, the inside is so beautifully simple and cozy (also, I’m a sucker for the rounded ceilings and arches). A lot of love went into the restoration and renovation of this space. Fourth, did I mention it was on a Greek island? OH! And the bathtub?!? Oh yes. : )
