Inspiring Interiors: A Serene Greek Retreat


Ever since our trip to Greece last May, I have been just dying to get back.  I fell deeply in love with the beauty of that country in particularly the islands (but how could you not).  Luckily there are so many different places to explore like Crete, Corfu, Rhodes and Hydra, which makes for a perfect excuse to go back.  When I stumbled across this breathtaking interior in Hydra it moved going back to the top of my list, even though as you saw from my last post it probably will not happen this year.  These interiors are serene and peaceful - which is the one aspect of their design aesthetic that I couldn't get enough of while visiting. I found looking at the bright white walls therapeutic and calming but enlivening at the same time.   On a final note, I would give almost anything to wake up to that breathtaking view in the last image everyday!

  18. There is something so calming and quiet about the Greek islands... I went to Mykonos and I was stunned at the beaty of the white washed walls on blue ocean! I, too, wish I could go back!!! One day, girl!
