This beautiful vacation rental in Montauk is owned and designed by Studio Robert McKinley (who also designed The Surf Lodge in Montauk). Together with his wife Kate Nauta, Robert McKinley designed the idyllic beach home. The 1900-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home can accommodate six people and has an additional 1-bedroom apartment attached that can accommodate three additional people, which can be rented separately or together. The interior and exterior design is inspired by Montauk’s wild salt-weathered coastline, as well as the casual elegance of Europe’s seaside towns where centuries old cultures exude rich color and pattern. All spaces are thoughtfully curated with bedding, linens, furniture, housewares, appliances and accessories from the studio’s most beloved brands. The best part…everything is for sale… including the house!

How cute are these tiny houses by Dutch designer Jurianne Matter?! HEIM is a village of 12 highly diverse houses: traditional, urban, rural, cosy and old but also contemporary and modern. They are genuinely prefab: pre-punched, pre-creased and with windows that have already been broken out. Even the interior walls have been provided with wallpaper in a trendy black & white print. The only thing that you, as a contractor, need to do is to glue the walls and roofs together where indicated. Finishing the houses is great fun, and once they are completed you can start shifting them around. Will your houses form a convivial village square on your table, or a ramrod-straight street on your window sill or against your wall? Will you string them into a festive garland, or give one away as a house-warming gift? With two of these sets (24 houses in total) you can also create the most amazing Advent calendar ever! Number them with the house numbers provided and put a small gift or message in each house, to be opened on each day of Advent.
Cashmere is the perfect material to wear during the colder winter months. It is warm but doesn’t make you look bulky. And I love how comfortable it feels on my skin. Some more advantages of cashmere: it is a natural fabric, it makes you feel warm without sweating (cashmere wool comes with air pockets that are able to provide outstanding insulation) and cashmere doesn’t shrink and wrinkle. The pieces featured here are all made of cashmere and available from Everlane. That means that they are affordable! And good to know: Everlane only works with ethical factories and they offer transparent prices.
This fabulous country house in Ojai, California, has been designed by Reath Design. This design studio was founded in 2009 by Frances Merrill and focuses on private residences, hotels, restaurants, and spaces for relaxation and leisure. The designers are interested in design’s impact on the private lives of individuals and families and believe that good design can improve people’s everyday life. Reath Design: “Central to our design approach is our love of color, pattern and textiles and this manifested in our desire to create spaces that are both warm and elegant. We believe that good design ages well and avoid short-lived trends in favor of timeless décor and wherever possible use personal artifacts to encapsulate a memory of emotion for our clients. We design spaces that feel lived in and that will further evolve and improve with time.”
These magical sea creatures are created by Vasili Lights, an Amsterdam-based design studio co-founded by Vasili Popov and Lidiya Koloyarskaya. Since 2015 these two architects have channeled their creativity into interior design objects. Inspired by the Nordic seaside and the oceans’ many bioluminescent creatures, they create paper craft lampshades in the shape of aquatic animals. Each lamp is a reflection of their architectural background and is designed with an eye for detail. Inspired by the roaring seas and its many bioluminescent creatures, the lampshades come in five variations: the turtle, the dolphin, the fish, the octopus, and the jellyfish. The lamps come in different colors and you can even pick between two different types. The “Lampshade” is made with large cut-outs that show the bulb inside, and the “Lantern” has small perforations that create a soft glow. Assembly is easy, you can even put it together with your children! And the best part: the sturdy paper, small-scale production, and flat-pack design make the lampshades a sustainable choice, so actual marine animals are a little safer from plastic waste. Vasili now offers free world wide shipping (limited offer) so go over to their website and take a look!
