our ultimate dream holiday home is here

designed by new york-based australian architect amee allsop, i have to admit this super luxurious summer residence from amagansett (east hampton), new york, would be too big for two of us to spend over the holiday. but still, it would be nice to stay in this gorgeous house for couple days: wake up being surrounded by woods and lots of natural sunlight, enjoy the morning shower in one of these chic bathrooms, take your paddle board to the ocean and paddle away the afternoon…

totally ridiculous and absolutely unrealistic? apparently we might all have a chance to experience this for real! the australian owner has this vision to not only have the place for her summer residence, but also as a place to host yoga retreat & cooking workshop. check out the tree house retreat for more information.

before the 2015 event calendar released, here is a virtual house tour for you:

hello september! (i am not saying bye-bye to summer yet)

a creative overhaul transformed the garden shed into a cozy guesthouse in the family’s backyard. the barn-inspired interior looks real without leaving the trying-too-hard feel. the mostly white interior makes a nice contest to the black exterior facade.

here are couple of my favorite moments:

recently i explored shareen joel design’s projects via share design and this beach home makes me feel to rush to the shore right now and enjoy the tail of summer as much as possible. 

the design studio has created a retreat home for a family of four, that felt casual,relaxed, and not too precious. there needs to be lots of storage room and flexible space to entertain family & guests. (put me on the guest list please) the result is a simple modern interior without scarifying the functionality.

ready for a quick tour?

it is the season makes you fancy about summer cottage/lodge in sunday afternoon… wherever close to the lake/shore/ocean kind of place (and wherever away from the city). this summer cottage located on Ekerö (a municipality in stockholm county in east central sweden) is featured on the cover of current issue of skonahem magazine. belongs to the blogger asa myrberg (lots DIY projects in her house), the interior style is easy and relatable, which is why i like about it SO MUCH.

oh summer.

love the concept of a fluid transition between inside and outside… especially when your surrounding is this gorgeous! what a luxurious thing if we could let the door & windows open all summer! the breeze, the sunshine… the joy of summer.

there is definitely a ‘i can move in here’ moment. i couldn’t  find anything i don’t like in this house. from living room to kitchen to bathroom and bedroom… everything seems so impossibly beautiful and convincingly functional.
