You’ll find me here…In my dreams…

Beautifully perched amongst the rocks that plunge down to the blue Aegean Sea

sits a beautiful simple home made of dry rock and warm cement.

It is stunning in it’s simplicity…

A HUGE earthenware oil jar claims it’s rightful spot…

greek1 Italian designer Paola Navone lives in this wonder of a place…

on one of the islands of Cyclades.

Ahhhhh. In through the nose…out through the mouth.

She furnishes it with many of her simple, modern designs.

Hand painted rugs outside…

and in.

Oh, geez! Where do I start? I love the painted "carpets" on the floors, the large round silver platters on the tables, the netting over the bed, the rocks, the colors, the view.

Sigh.

But I'm a little intimidated by that oil jar!

Stephanie C. said...

simplicity and perfection! the pared down sensibility is what living by the sea is all about.

the only thing i'm not madly in love with is the painted floor designs. and i could put up with those! everything else...heaven on earth.

I love the design painted on the cement. All the white is so relaxing and soothing too. When I was younger I always wante color but these days I really get into the textures of white around me.

I featured this place before in my blog but still every time I get to see this place again I still get the same feelings I had then all over again.

Feeling of serenity, relaxation, and tranquility. truly a feast to eyes and other senses.

I live in the san juan Islands in wa state. In my own little humble beach house. There is just something so heartwarming and comfortable in imperfection. I am living in my dream location in a funky funny house.
