The muted tones of this residence have inspired me greatly recently.
I have been eager to change the decoration to fit our new life since we relocated to France. The soft, natural palette of this residence is what I’m aiming for.
Our current decoration is not outdated, quite the opposite actually.
I was impressed by how some areas in our home still look modern and timeless after 12 years like our master bedroom with its dark grey feature wall or the Ikea kitchen that hasn’t gone yellow despite being exposed to natural light.
However, now that we have received our belongings from London, I feel it’s time to give our home a little makeover and a more beachy look.
This amazing rendering of the Mykonos residence was designed by Block 722, an Architectural practice with offices in Greece and Denmark.Using a neutral palette, earthy materials, and natural soft furnishings, this residence is an invitation to wander around in one of these lovely dresses.
Having used a natural lime-based paint by Kalklitir on one of the walls in our lounge to add textures (and loving the results!), I’m keen to try out different, lighter hues in other rooms to add depth and textures like these whitewashed walls.
By the way, there is a great article in the ELLE DECO UK (April ’18, pages 214-215) on “How to add textures to your home” .
The natural Wishbone chair looks at home there. It is such a beautiful chair, don’t you think!?
