Plan a Christmas escape in...

Although it's the last day of November, here the weather is still warm enough and the sun shines! Nonetheless, my mind is daydreaming of cosy country guest houses with unobstructed views of snowy landscapes and an enormous fireplace which warms up the space... 
A place like this, is Teresa Country Lodge, in Eptalofos village near mount Parnassos. It's about a traditionally built stone guest house with wooden additions, which features tastfully  decorated rooms with fireplace and views of the mountain and the garden.
Oh... I really would like to spend a couple of days there, during Christmas period, in order to "fill my batteries" and relax...

Whimsical kids' headboards

There are so many ways to decorate a kid's room in order to look unique! You can use fabulous wallpapers, amazing colour combinations, original in shape shelves, unique cushions & fluffy toys, wonderful crispy linens... But what about the bed? Will you add a common bed in your kid's room?
Personally, I adore those kids' beds with big whimsical headboards which are either painted in the kid's favourite theme/hero or those which look like a little country home...

Contemporary dining room

A unique contemporary dining room so clever designed... What I liked most in it is its central wall with the floor to ceiling shelf unit, the white doodles in the dark grey wall and the group of Tom Dixon copper lights.

Influenced by Japan

This house cought my eye by the first sight because of its peaceful simplicity.... I loved its open spaces with the white walls, the light wooden floors and the enormous openings which allow the sun rays invade inside and fill the space with warm, pure light! The furnishing and decoration are influenced by the Japanese architecture  and interior design aesthetic, resulting in a serene interior.

Plan an escape in... Critamo Cottage

Critamo Cottage is a 200 years old Cretan house, located near the historic town of Chania.... It is built at the beginning of the Ottoman conquest in 1724 and since then passed from father to sun. Now, after its restoration, it has been transformed into a wonderful guest house which can accomodate up to five persons.
It' s about a unique traditional cretan building with exposed stone walls, arches, wooden coloured windows and a spacious yard with trees and flowers...
Its name "Critamo" is borrowed from the homonymous herb, well known in Crete, rich in vitamin C and mineral content, used in herbal medicine...

Happy shelves for the kid's room

Today, we'll deal with the decoration of the kid's room walls... It is an issue which concerns all parents, when they are in the process of decorating their little princess's (or prince) room! 
The majority is looking for happy colors to paint the walls or whimsical wallparers to cover them... And then what? Personnaly, I find very interesting the use of little shelves or boxes painted in happy colors and filled with the kids' fluffy toys, books, frames with their photos, art or whimsical string lights. There is a big variety of designs and combinations to use, according to the space and the kids' needs...
