my scandinavian home: A dreamy home in Puglia

A dreamy home in Puglia

Wednesday, 30 September 2015

A few years ago we were invited to a wedding in Puglia, in the heel of Italy. I was totally mesmerised by the area and I can still taste the olives and deliciously sun ripened tomatoes and aubergines today. Puglia is also known for its 'trullis' - pretty dry stone huts with a conical shaped roof. Seeing this beautiful holiday home from the region, captured by Frederic Vasseur, immediately transported me back to our wonderful holiday. I love the cool outdoor space, relaxed open storage, beautiful patterned tiles and floaty textiles. How much would you like to be in this villa right now?!








Frederic Vasseur shared with kind permission. Found via The Style Files with thanks.

The white linen in the outdoor space not only keeps the covered area shaded but also creates a dreamy feel.

I also love the idea of having curtains around a bed - it really does create a sanctuary. I've been toying with this in my own bedroom - do you think it would work?

More beautiful Italian spaces include this converted mill, a designer's studio, rustic inspiration from the portfolio of wonderful portfolio of Claudio Tajoli and I'd love to visit this restauarant in Lazio with an olive tree at the centre!

Viva I'italia!

By the way, it's so GREAT to see so many comments lately - I love reading them and have always felt they are an extremely important part of My Scandinavian Home - thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts, observations, and tips.

Have a lovely day!

  1. Hi!!
    Wonderful home, I love Italy :)

    I see you're a big fan of tiles, you always mention them in your home tours, so I thought I'd share some info about the typical tilework from my country, Portugal!

    Influences of the Arab occupation many centuries ago ;) bit different now, but also stunning!

    Regards!

    2. You're welcome!
      I believe that there are some authorized shops selling our tiles, such as this one: http://www.azulejosdeportugal.com/home.html
      Unfortunately many people want "the real ancient deal" as souvenirs so some monuments have been vandalized, with many tiles ripped apart :( shameful...

  3. Wow! I too am a sucker for gorgeous tiles and would like to implement them in my home (soon) ..Thank you Joana! I am in love with that bathroom! I must confess I love bathrooms! I love huge soaking tubs and walk-in showers...tile floors. Okay you get it! This bath is just awesome! The whole house just oozes cool and in a hotter climate that is important, I love the drapery too. Just a beautiful place.
