Bring home with you…

Summer is in full swing and I find myself dreaming quite a bit of a vacation, or even a weekend getaway. There is something about renting a beach house, a quaint country cottage, or just staying at a friend’s guesthouse that makes the trip extra special, kind of like a home away from home. And that's when little (or big!) inspirations can be found. When I look at the photographs below, each one of them conjures up a feeling of far away places for me – from simple objects like an Italian glass bottle to a box of beautifully packaged soaps. These vignettes of ideas and colors can be worked into our home, into our everyday life. It's all the thoughtful details that make your stay memorable, so why not recreate them in your own home? It’s always nice to see or have something that reminds you of your time away… 

… easy living, Italian glass bottle as bedside carafe. 

… showcase paintings in a different light. 

… unexpected details become the centerpieces.

… simple objects, pure indulgence. 

… translate local colors, from one room to another.

So take a few mental notes on your next trip and bring those inspirations home. And have fun with them!
