LIVING OUTDOORS

 TRAVEL




Can you imagine living most of the time outside and rooms we're used to have inside are outside? Probably if you're living in a place like Goa in India. The fashion designer Laurence DoligĂ© knows it and has created this dreamy home in the sand. Every summer Home and Delicious have "visited" a home in Goa and now we are there. This visit was found via Lonny Magazine. Visit Lonny for lifestyle update and great interior features.

ALL INCLUSIVE

TRAVEL




As we are in Italy I thought it might be relevant to post this great eco-friendly B and B, located 15 km from the city of Parma. Il Richiamo del Bosco is in perfect harmony with the environment as it's in the first protected park in Emilia-Romagna and everything was restructured according to the criteria of bio building and energy saving. All is inclusive in this lovely B and B; the country, the environment, the beautiful rooms, eco-friendliness, healthy breakfast... To read more about it visit the website HERE.

PULLED PORK WITH PICKLED VEG IN A SWEET POTATO

FOOD





This is such a good dish! You should try it. Pulled pork served in a baked sweet potato with pickled vegetable and sour cream. Pulled pork and pickled veg takes some time to cook BUT not for you to make. The pork should be in the oven for some hours, but it takes you minutes to prepare. The same goes for the veg. The originality of this dish is from a nice restaurant in London we like to visit when we're there, Muriel's kitchen. Once we had it there and when back home we searched on the web to put together some recipe for it. The recipe following is the one we use when making it for our family. Enjoy!

FOR LOVERS OF BOOKS AND DETAILS

HOME VISIT




Books are essential in every home, beautiful, entertaining and educational. After reading they can have multifunctional purpose as this home in California shows. Books are everywhere and used as decoration, to add hight, add layers – they can be found in various sort of places, but very few of them in bookshelves. So are magazines. This is a home where details are embraced in a flowing space and personal objects and vintage finds make the difference.

WHERE TO PUT PLANTS?

DECOR




Accurate ideas of where to put plants in your home. They can be anywhere really, but the photos show some great places and how to master it with various types of plants. It's easy to find your  plant-category; soft or succulent, big or small, hanging from the ceiling or standing on the floor. Also if you like many of the in a cluster or one on it's own. It all depends.

TOSCANA CHARMS

HOME VISIT




Though in Toscana, Italy, we can grab a thing from here and there all over this home visit to use for ourself, isn't it? (Though in Toscana...understatement – who wouldn't steal the Toscana's scenery!) This holiday home of Marieke and Mark van Kruisjbergen is near the town of Montalcino. It looks fresh and simple in the white shell but warm and tender through strong textural features. For me it's the use of the rough greyish-brown wood boards and concrete floors that made me stop and look at first. I have special interest in both materials and really like the owner's way of using it and how they let it stand out without anything else competing for interest...except the landscape!

DARK BEDROOMS

INTERIOR


Dark bedrooms – could be the saviour you need during the bright nights period as we have here in Iceland. When you feel not like sleeping because it's almost like a bright day. And you have trouble sleeping because of the light in your room and... I could keep on going, as I know resting in a dark bedroom is the most wonderful thing ever! I will never turn back from this peaceful serenity dark bedrooms are. Sleeping in the dark and then embrace the daylight when you wake up. And during the darkest weeks when you light up your room with soothing lamps and the room is the cosiest ever. Be open minded about the dark-side of the...bedroom.

ONE OF A KIND: HOME OF AMANDA HARLECH

HOME VISIT




I found the last puzzle! Recently I posted a photo of the small, old school desk beside the fireplace (photo no 3) and mentioned it was one of my favourite interior photos. Then I found a photo of the other part of this amazing living room and noticed it was the same room. And then, the photo with the big rice-paper lamp, which is also one of my favourite, was in this same house and then...and then... It is all the home of Amanda Harlech in Shropshire England. As a big lover of the English countryside, I'm also a big lover of this house. The photos are far away from being new, but it so really doesn't matter. The style is impeccable, personal, and super chic all the way. By the way; Amanda is a creative consultant and a writer and well known for being muse to Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano.
