The owner of this house in Italy is a former classical dancer who is interested in interior design! I have a soft spot for houses where soft powder colours are used without creating a 'Little Twin Star' look. I dig the stripes in the hallway, the purple kid's room and the cosy attic bedroom.

The conversion of an old Orangerie in Geneva, Switzerland inspired me today. With a building like this one you can go either way and the owners decided to boldly add a very modern addition. They furnished their home with design classics in bold colours whilst keeping the walls and floors neutral which really makes the colours pop. Isn't the sun-filled dining room great?

This house is located here in France but the style is truly 'mondiale' and eclectic. Napoleon epoque hallway, Nepalese pavillon in the parc, art deco dining room, Henry II buffet in the kitchen and a hyper-modern pared down bathroom. Of course, it is the poorch I love most, as I am officially porch-obsessed.

When I recently asked you, read readers, which countries I should feature more a reader said: Scandinavia. Today I present a Swedish summer house to my liking. It has just the right mix of yellow and pink accent colours to keep it interesting. I am obessed with porches so this one is a big plus in my books.
Happy 1st of May! I hope you all danced away last night.

We'll start the weekend in Rioja, Spain, touring a laid-back home. I like the original features of this home such as the tiles and the window shutters. Oh, and the frequent use of mirrors is so pretty and inspiring me to start collecting differently shaped mirrors to brighten the flat.

42 squaremeters of bliss! Looks airy and charming, especially the kitchen. I also like the open bath tub - not always practical in a small space - but really cool and romantic. The beams are very Parisian.
Only two days to go until the blogs 2nd birthday. Start thinking what you want to see more off next year.
