Vacation Dreaming – Mykonos Home by Block722architects+

Hi Everyone!

Not being able to travel over the past year has been challenging for me.  The best way that I have found to counter my desire to get on a plane and immerse myself in a new culture has been to lose myself in dreamy projects around the world.  Today’s feature project is located in a country that is very high on my bucket list – Greece!  746767DD-FB5E-47A1-9706-B4F192456476Mykonos Home by Block722architect+ is a luxury home designed in Cycladic style of architecture.  With its use of earthy materials and textures, whitewashed walls and open spaces this home is an unmistakably dreamy refuge.  While currently it is only a render, once built it will blend perfectly in with the other building on the beautiful island of Mykonos.  9F93AD09-E9C9-4C5B-A151-0F0622CCDB0EAD3530D2-9026-406E-BBBB-77794E8D3043The natural light from the tall windows that stretch nearly the entire height of the wall give the impression of a larger space than the home really is (300m2).  Bringing in a Scandinavian design influence into the interiors, the main materials used within the home are stone and timber.  The use of these materials is also an intelligent design decision as they are naturally cooling which is particularly useful during the hot summer months.  54322476-3DA1-46EE-9084-D59FA977EBFFC0843F29-5691-42A5-9F1C-ED16DDAF6259One of my favourite spaces within the home is the kitchen, with its finely latticed timber cabinetry in a washed timber paired with lime washed walls and brass details its both chic yet warm and calming.891B1214-EDAF-4C40-A4C6-82A03D2C91E4Stone platforms are featured prominently throughout the home both inside in the living areas and within the outdoor area where they are used as day beds.  The outdoor shaded area overlooks the teal tiled pool  The outdoor space also features an outdoor shower along with areas to relax and entertain.  The decor is kept simple yet welcoming and very zen.   50A853D8-5B3B-4B96-9725-8471FBC41E83BF159559-2214-4B88-8802-AB159C657E87It is very easy to lose yourself in daydreams about this gorgeous space.  What do you think of this home?  Let me know in the comments below!

I hope that you have a beautiful day!  XXS
