HEMPEL GARDENS

I am intrigued by Anouska Hempel’s landscapes. Her gardens are green and very structured. They seem like a modern take on what old British gardens used to be like.

Hempel has an interesting story…she was a James Bond vixen turned British socialite and has an internationally recognized firm specializing in interior designer and landscape architecture. Not too shabby……

Above is what the garden looks like by day. Below is what the garden can look like during an event with the use of a tent and lanterns. I would have loved to be the one to host a dinner like this one.

SPANISH BARN

I discovered this barn on the internet yesterday and it took my breath away. It was an abandoned barn in Extremadura, Spain that someone bought and turned into a vacation home. With the help of Abaton, a Spanish architectural firm, they were able to turn a dilapidated barn into the perfect rustic getaway. The addition of the over-sized wooden shutters add a modern touch yet blend will the the aged stone. I like the minimal use of furniture in the home as to not deflect attention from the generous view. The mid-century furniture is a nice touch of simplistic style.

This is where I wish I was today. Waking up to a nice view, going for a hike, tanning by the pool…..how relaxing does that sound?!?
