RENOVATED GOTLAND SUMMER HOME ON EMILYALDER

Before we get to the renovated Gotland summer home, a bit about my admiration for Sweden.

As a teenager I was able to spend a summer traveling the Southern part of Sweden with one of my best friends. Diana is the niece of my first au pair and lived with us for my freshman year of high school. Once the school year was over we travelled to her hometown of Falkenberg, Sweden, continuing on to Goteberg, Bast├ąd, and Halmstad. Diana and I traveled around the South West of the country visiting family and friends. Long walks through the woods, mornings jumping in the water, exploring city life. We shopped, ate delicious food, dyed my hair brown (a story for another time), and spent nights talking into the early morning. It was a trip that opened my eyes to the vastness of the world.

BEACHFRONT IN SOUTH AFRICA

Are you ready? Today’s home feature is crazy beautiful. Even better than the 2001 feature film and my teen self LOVED that one. On a serious note, this home is a work of art.

Located on the West Coast of South Africa, the design boasts an open floor plan with clean minimalism while embracing the natural elements of the Cape. Combining my two favorite materials, stark whites with warm woods. The open space connecting the dining area, kitchen, and living space allows for family time and easy entertaining.
