With the last few sunny days of summer coming to an end - what can be nicer than to dream of your next summer vacation...  

Nowhere better than this house on Formentera - concrete floors, stone walls, and some fine rustic furniture pieces - just the bare necessary items, to ensure perfect relaxation.

Oh and did I mention the pool, dry hot sunshine, ice cold G + T....

This architectural gem is on the island of Formentera and is situated on a 19,060 m2 plot of rustic nature.  'Can Manuel D'en Corda' was designed by a very talented Spanish architect, and a personal favorite of mine - Maria Castello.  

Every littlelest detail have been so well thought out - I love how she has kept the style rustic and in uniformity with the surrounding landscape, yet have seamlessly mixed in some very modernist trends.

A big fan of concrete - I see some beautiful worktops, the wet-room with beautiful floor and wall finishes - and the subtle grey floors throughout.  Cool grey, with crisp white and wood, along with the stone walls..... Uncluttered and beautifully executed design - I love every room and every space and it sits perfectly in its natural environment.

I am in awe, and I am in admiration of this architects work - simplicity always seems to reign in beautiful design.

You can read more about the design of the project on Architizer, where I also got these images from.

Time waits for no-one and that's a fact.  The past couple of weeks have been tremendously busy - which is great, but not so great trying to run full steam with so little sleep!  And also not so great, because I've really been neglecting updating my blog ...

I think I am in need of a little sunny break, to a quiet retreat - would love to stay in this summer house in Patmos, Greece and just catch my breath... take in the scenery, go for early morning walks, and swims in the sea, sitting on the veranda sipping an ice cold drink and watching the world go by... If only life can be so carefree and easy every day!

But today I'm happy to share a couple of newly found inspirational blogs - where I have also found these images from:
The first is Studio34E - a blogger from Greece with some beautiful posts and inspiring interiors - I will follow!  
The second is BHMA Deco - also from Greece with lots of different subjects and links and again some very inspirational interiors, another follow!

Most certainly worth a look!
