A beautiful white cottage by the sea

I hope you've enjoyed my Asian inspired week, I would've loved to have done so much more, there's only one thing for it, I NEED to go back on a personal visit rather than a business trip and take my own images!! Watch this space!! And now it's time for the weekend and here in Sweden everyone's gearing up for the annual trip to either their own or a friend/family's summer cottage. So here's a little inspiration - a beautiful 18th century summer cottage by the sea in Cornwall, England. It had me at the all white....!

According to Dust Jacket Attic the floorboards are made of reclaimed scaffolding wood which has been white washed and waxed. Beautiful?!

Tonight it's England vs Sweden in Euro 2012. Always tense in our household and I'm actually starting to get very nervous  (I'm english and my man's swedish!). So I'd like to end by saying good luck Sweden, and COME ON England!!!!! May the best men win!

Have a lovely weekend! x

  4. I would go for England on this game - but understand your dilemma.:-) My country team is not on Euro2012 so we are just sitting and enjoying the games - not sure it is good or bad though, not to go for my country team!!

  5. This. Is. PERFECT. Where do you always find such gorgeous interiors?? This house is just stunning, from top to bottom. All those whitewashed floors? Perfection! Those glass panes in the bedroom door? I'm drooling. I literally love everything about this house. The bottles in the bathtub, the light fixtures in the kitchen. How does one get a house like this??
