Napa Valley is a beautiful area and here on 1 Kindesign we have presented several incredible home tours, take a peek:
A seaside home was recently renovated with Moroccan style interiors, located in rural Basque, near Biarritz, an elegant coastal town in southwestern France. The home was purchased by a couple living in Paris who were looking for a relaxed haven to unwind on weekends and holidays. The new homeowners were looking for all the things they were missing by living in a big city, light, space and the horizon. Outside, beautiful gardens composed of hydrangeas, lavender and wild grasses creates a welcoming environment to spend time lounging outdoors. On the interiors, light illuminates the spaces and designer furnishings from the region adds character. A mix of vivid and strong colors infuse the spaces, inspired by Moroccan style and the colors of Basque architecture. All areas of the home boast a special charm, however in the summertime there are two areas which are key, one being the summer kitchen, with a work island that servers as a bar; another is the stunning swimming pool, surrounded by lush flowers and shrubs. Inside, the living room fireplace recreates the best living environment for the coldest of nights. Could you possibly ask for anything more?
In the interior, choosing the upholstery and curtains, the designers selected an intense red rouge, a hue characteristic of the region, which can also be seen in the architecture of the house. Touring through the spaces you will see materials of skirting pine, stone floors, ceramic or mosaic walls paneled with carved wooden slats.

This summer dream house is infused with rustic and modern styling by Greek architects Block722, located on Syros, a Greek island in the Cyclades, in the Aegean Sea. Immersed in the rugged landscape, the properties exterior facade of white and wood matches with the island vernacular. An inviting home that is clean and simple, the homeowners are a couple who entertain guests often during each season. Designed into two blocks, one features the social areas, encompassing the living room, kitchen and guest rooms, and the other hosts the master bedroom of the couple. Each area has its own separate entrance. A holiday home whose design is inspired for relaxation and peace.
The main request by the owners was to maximize the privileged views of the Aegean Sea throughout all spaces of the home. Outside, an infinity pool seems to merge with the sea, with sun loungers on the terrace to enjoy the peaceful views. The architects main objective was to unify all of the spaces under one roof, with continuous views of the ocean without creating a massive volume. This resulted in a rectangle in separate pieces with opening on all sides. Guests have private spaces, yet have continuous access to the pool and all other outdoor spaces. The interiors reflect the magnificent landscape that surrounds, featuring natural materials, stone and wood.
The topography of the landscape defines the garden and outdoor spaces, respecting the varying levels and location of the dwelling. Despite this being a summer retreat, the homeowners still like to enjoy it during the winter months. The living room features a warm and inviting fireplace. Enjoy the tour of this beautiful summer retreat, and be sure to let us know your favorite architectural feature in the comments section below.

In Biarritz, France we find this wonderful fully furnished pool house, surrounded by a lush gardens designed by KMO Architects designer Melian Randolph. What was originally an open building with a seating area, dining area and a small kitchenette to enjoy long summer days on the water, eventually became a pavilion house in the making. The design team gave a fresh and natural style to this re-design, dotted with refined touches. They added an annex to the existing building which houses a lounge area, they also added a loft space with a bedroom and bathroom. The designer has been friends with the homeowners for the past twenty years, which helped facilitate the design process to have familiarity with their style tastes. The end result was just as expected, so much more than just a classic pool pavilion. The inspiration for the design was beach huts on the French Atlantic coast, which created a blue and white design scheme that is very Mediterranean and fresh. Both the interior and exterior lounge areas showcase dynamic and colorful materials and patterns. The materials selected exude personality and express the feeling of freshness, in the tiling, oak flooring, fabrics and natural fibers. The refreshing pool and turquoise hued water is repeated on the sofas, cushions and accessories. The lovely gardens create a comfortable and serene atmosphere to enjoy throughout the year, especially during the warm summer months.
This comfortable pool house offers a fireplace in the living room to keep family members and guests warm in the evenings and cool winter months. The graphical chevron print tiling on the floor adds visual interest and a nice pop of color to the space. What do you think of this pool house, would make good use of it?
