Nile Cruising

Saturday, July 31, 2010
How about a stylish cruise up the Nile? 

Nour El Nil offers great Nile tours with their dahabiehs, old style vessels that used to carry royal families, where you get the chance to meet Egypt in a non-typical way. Egypt has always been one of my most desired destinations but now I'm definitely going to make it happen!

Check Nour El Nil website for more information on the cruises. Images via Nour El Nil. Found in the style files.

A small house in the Luberon, Provence

As small rural houses keep drawing my attention, I want to share with you this one I have found in Cote Maison. This tiny house, situated in Provence, France serves as a retreat to their owners, Michele and Bruno Viard. Imagine a beautiful place hidden in wondrous natural surroundings with no telephone or TV, so rare nowadays, where you can relax and charge your batteries away from civilisation. *sigh*

Exotic calmness in these photos shot by Heidi Lerkenfeldt. I wish I could find more information about the place, though. Any ideas?

In the middle of summer simple, laid-back rural houses seem really appealing so when I came across this one in Formentera island I couldn't help myself but share it with you. Enjoy!

I like the way architect/street artist b. makes Athens a bit more interesting.

And some of his non street works

Be sure to check his work in Behance Network and his website. I am a big fan, I admit!

Perivolas Boutique Hotel in Oia, Greece

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Boutique hotel Perivolas is situated in Oia on the northern part of Santorini, Greece. The island by itself is one of the most stunning, breath-taking places one can visit and this hotel totally captures the spirit of the place. Have a look at these photos and imagine how the cool Aegean breeze would feel on your skin while resting by the infinite pool.

The interiors carry on the plasticity and the curved volumes of the exterior.

I can easily picture myself lolling on this cute outdoor bed Christina Strutt of Cabbages&Roses has created for herself. Found in Design*Sponge.
