I would never pick that wallpaper, and I do not like zebra rugs, but all of these elements together are so pretty.

Brick wall and an unashamedly girly bed? Love it.

More inspiration from Greece: A private house in Tinos

Here is a gorgeous home in Cyclades, Greece, on the Island of Tinos.  The architects set out to make the home symbolic of what the island represents - day to day beauty and simplicity.

The home is 250sqm of living space with an open plan layout.  There are no cabinets, closets, or drawers in the interior, only built in nooks and niches.  I imagine this keeps the inhabitant from bringing clutter into the home and keeps the look simple and serene.

Inspiring white interiors

Used to be the pages of Decorology was always bursting with images of white interiors. While I still and probably will always love white interiors, my love of color has blossomed over time.  Nonetheless, I thought it would still be nice to pay homage to my first love, white interiors. Enjoy!

This would be such a nice bedroom for guests or a vacation home.

So pretty but with a pup and perpetually muddy backyard this white floor would always be covered in paw prints!

If I thought our current home was our forever home I would probably paint the cabinets white - because white kitchens are by far my favorite!

A stunning private paradise in Mykonos

No doubt I am hiking the rough and beautiful terrain of Crete right now, so I thought I'd leave you with a beautiful abode in nearby Mykonos.  We aren't staying anywhere this nice, but we have the landscapes for eye candy.  Enjoy!
