Fash­ion designer John Rocha knows how to design. How­ever his pared-down, sim­ple vaca­tion bun­ga­low in St. Jean–Cap-Ferrat, France stands in stark con­trast to his edgy and dark-cloaked run­way models.

This bun­ga­low is where he comes to relax and clear his mind. It’s no sur­prise then that the archi­tec­ture is com­posed of uncom­pli­cated geom­e­try, white walls, Ital­ian lime­stone and a trop­i­cal (back­yard) oasis with a slate infin­ity pool.

Absolutely gor­geous; it’s one of my all-time favourites.

Autumn is well under­way here at the south­ern most tip of Africa, but we’re hav­ing unusu­ally kind weather at the moment.  I’m look­ing for­ward to the last few days pool­side (or the patio!) and a nice, relax­ing weekend.

The port­fo­lio of the pho­tog­ra­pher Jordi Canosa is just a source of great inspi­ra­tion. It is full of beau­ti­ful homes and houses from all over the world. This sum­mer house is located in the small island For­mentera. I just love how every­thing in this house was kept sim­ple and clean with­out unnec­es­sary fur­ni­ture and acces­sories — per­fect to get away from the rat race!

The moment I saw these pic­tures of Dar Kawa in Mar­rakech, Morocco, I just knew it was one of those places that had to be on my week­end on my  list. Redesigned by Valerie Barkowski with the help of archi­tect Quentin Wilbaux, Dar Kawa’s style is all about sim­plic­ity and authenticity.

Think bliss­ful, relaxation…
