here it is! a first glimpse of the new casa cook hotel in kos. this summer, their second boutique hotel will open, after the huge success of the ever stylish and inspiring casa cook hotel in rhodos. as an interior and resort designer, casa cook has always been a big inspiration to me, and it totally reflects my style. so i'm really looking forward to visiting this newborn beauty!

to me, stairs can be beautiful pieces of sculpture. more than just some functional pieces of architecture in your house. being timeless, pure and simple, the trick is to find a harmony between cold and warm materials, textures and objects.
if you want to give your staircase an instant mediterranean look, keep your color palette white and add some old ethnic items in earth tones to your white minimalistic interior. or place some natural findings such as a big driftwood branch as an eye-catcher on the stairs. don't mind if this piece of wood is full of cracks or if it's weathered. it's the art of finding beauty in imperfection. combine with a big tropical plant if you have enough space, or with a nice kelim carpet, and for the rest: keep it simple and clean.
can you feel the sunshine in your home?
hi there! welcome to my blog, where i will share my works as a furniture and interior designer and stylist, and also what inspires me every day. beautiful interiors, tropical architecture, trends, hotspots, happy vibes, travel snaps, you name it!
i won't spam you with too many posts. my blog will be a 'slow blog'. in this fast moving world, sometimes we need to take some time to stand still and have a look at the beautiful things surrounding us, offline and online. beautiful things that make us happy. that inspire us.
so take a deep breath and happy reading!
THIS IS ME
valerie dhaeze. designer. stylist. creative soul. enjoying life. dreamer. day and night. a massive dose of wanderlust. also a little critical and very curious. addicted to beautiful interiors, and fascinated by trends, photograpy and travel. finding unexpected objects such as a wonderful driftwood branch on a deserted greek beach makes me happy. and i can always use some sunshine.
