I’ve always loved the Cycladic architecture and so just couldn’t help falling in love with this beautiful house on the Greek island of Sifnos.
Built on the edge of a cliff with stunning views of the sea, the owners have achieved a modern effect whilst keeping to tradition with the white-washed exterior, exposed beams and blinding white floors throughout.
Dark wood furniture and tribal- inspired decorative accessories contrast perfectly with the white canvas whilst a huge work of art by Fernandez Pijuan creates a stunning feature wall.
The rattan and bamboo furniture just add to the rustic feel whilst the extra large sofa and dozens of cushions ensure a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.
Kerb appeal – the split door and few planters give guests a taste of what awaits – a magical, serene world of white.
Everything, from the sofa to the shelves and fireplace, is built-in here, not only making the room look much bigger but also lending it a strong air of harmony. Again, a few cushions scattered here and there and the large book collection ensure that the room looks lived in and not clinical.
White reigns throughout this house and nowhere is this more evident than in the kitchen, where it is interrupted only by the few coloured home accessories, the retro ceiling lights and the pistachio coloured fridge.
The bedroom continues in the white theme and is the epitome of serenity, with just a simple built-in bed and and large floor cushion acting as a bed end stool.
