These holiday homes are located in Israel, and were designed by Ron Shenkin Studio. They look so cozy, I'd like to spend some time staying here. For more photos check out Contemporist.
The Bungalows are part of a complex which combines various attractions; walkways, gardens, vegetable gardens, swimming pool, gazebos and a path that leads to the beach.
All bungalows face the sea. The porch is located facing the sea, hovering over the landscape covered by a pergola and wooden beams on the sides for a feeling of intimacy.
I'm in love with this amazing house, located in Mexico City. It's so open and airy, yet the rooms definitely suggest comfort. The house is surrounded by a perimeter wall, so the courtyards are the solution to letting light in and having some green space. It was created by architect Andrés Stebelski.

We got a new wall rack for our knives! Now we can store them right beside our cutting board for even more convenience. I'm loving having them tucked flat on the wall, and it looks pretty neat too.
I apologize for the lack of postings these days. Things have been super busy around here, and unfortunately it leaves little time for doing as many projects as we would like on the house. Plus, our little one is now running around which makes getting things down more of a challenge. However, we will soon have our new house numbers up, and Jeff is working away on the other half of the shelves to go beside the fireplace. Hopefully I will get to post about those soon. We are also in the planning stages for our balcony out front. Lots more to write about coming up!
This city hall in Belgium was designed by Frederic Haesevoets Architecture. The roof creates a patchwork of greenwalls. It makes quite the impression, and sets the tone for this Belgium city. See more photos at Contemporist.
March is one of these in between months, not quite winter but not yet spring. The weather can deal out anything from snow to super warm sunny days. Trying to dress for this month is nearly impossible; it's all about the layers. Even though this month can be a bit blah, I've tried to come up with some inspiring images for March. On the plus side Easter is in March this year!
This neat house is located in Johannesburg, South Africa. It was designed by Nico van der Meulen Architects and the interiors were done by M Square Lifestyle Design. It would be amazing to be connected to the outdoors from every room, yet still be able to enjoy the benefits of being inside. Literally, the best of both worlds. Check out more at Contemporist.
From the architect:
The client’s brief called for a family orientated home suitable for indoor/outdoor entertainment that maximizes the views to the north. The result is a sculptural piece of architecture that is an extreme transformation from the previously modest single story.
With every room in the house opening outdoors, linking the home with the landscaped garden, indoor/outdoor living is guaranteed. Werner van der Meulen used morphed steels forms that wrap around and frame the structure by the use of parasitic architecture.
