Today I’m daydreaming of… Greece. I came across the exterior of this house and a couple of interior shots a while ago, and posted them here, and I recently discovered lots more photos, and the sister property, also in Mykonos! Doesn’t this look like the most serene place ever? I love all the white, the modern touches, the blue-gray accents, and way the walls all have soft, rounded edges and corners.
The villas also have a great story. Johnny and Katie Friedman, a British couple, purchased the two villas– Villa Orpheus and Villa Eurydice– after marrying at the private chapel at Villa Eurydice (image top right) in 2007 and falling in love with the houses and the island. They now run a company called Mykonos Villa Crew that operates the villas as rental properties, as well as four other properties in Cape Town and London.
Check out the gallery for lots more of both houses.
A few beautiful home shots for you from French photographer Jerome Galland. Above left, a home in St. Syr sur Mer, and above right, the Italian vacation home of Giorgio Armani, both from Marie Claire Maison (why aren’t American decor magazines this good?).
How cool are those two dining spaces? The giant open wall with big drapes flanking and the pergola of palm branches are both ideas I’m making mental notes of for later…
Below, a home in Mykonos. As my sister just said, “Who knew white could say so much?” Whether Greek or Scandinavian, I’m not getting sick of the mostly white look (and I’m still pretty hooked on white+wood, leather, and black for a city house), it just looks so visually refreshing.
