The closer we approach to spring the worse the weather gets over here (hey, Murfy, get out of the way please). It's funny that I'm posting this amazing villa today, for the gloomy skies have nothing to do with the clear blue one we're used to have as a background to such places. Anyway, Villa Kalos is located in Ithaca, a small island in the Ionian sea (for the ancient greek history: Ithaca was the homeland of Odysseus) and its contemporary interpretation of the greek island architecture stole my heart the moment I saw it on Est Magazine the other day. What was once an abandoned stone house is now a hip shelter to the souls of the beauty seekers, the dreamers, the lovers of the nature and peace, thanks to its artistic owners Gerda Genis and Robbert Koene, photographers coming from South Africa. Oh, there is everything that's expected to be found there; exposed concrete, built in cabinetry, unrefined woods and stone. And, the most serene surroundings to be found. Bliss ^^

Why is that everything looks way more appealing in a smaller size? I mean, how come a soap bar makes me weak at the knees only by getting tinier than usual? I guess it has something to do with our primitive motherhood instincts but, please correct me if I’m wrong, isn’t the above mix a parade of cuteness?

And voila! The longest image I've posted on the blog so far ^^. I knew you guys enjoyed my recent post on how to mix and match the chairs round your dining table in a stylish way so I put up a list of some basic options to help you started. The possibilities are endless (and I really had a hard time narrowing them down for this post) but I'm sure these will get you to the point. Happy mixing!

Oh, this week has been a mess! And I mean blogwise. So, skipping once again my normal posting schedule (this time for a not so happy reason- I'm down with the flu and my head is not working properly) I'd like to share with you this amazing interior I came across while spending some (horizontal) time on the ipad browsing the fever away. Isn't it stunning? It is a parisian apartment designed by Jess Vedel and visualised by Talcik | Demonicova. See even more amazing shots of this place, as well as more of their impressive works, here.
Wish you a great weekend, dears, and see you fresh and rejuvenated (hopefully) on Monday! xoxo
P.s. Last day to enter the Roomations giveaway for a chance to win your own personalised interior design style board for your home worth $250! Don't miss!
