paint effects

I love the simplicity of this holiday home owned by designer Paola Navone on the Greek Island of Serifos. It looks so idyllic. And I love that amongst some high end design are these little upcycled details, like the upturned painted rubbish bins as legs for a rustic table in the entrance hall.
But my favourite favourite thing has to be this painted rug on the concrete floor. Genius inspired. 
Now I wonder what I could manage on the floor at the beach this weekend?!! Shall I pack a little brush and give it a go? I could always hide it away under a real rug if disaster strikes!

  1. That's so clever, and perfectly balances the room. Neither art nor décor, but better than both!

    (And thanks for your email; I'm looking forward!)

  2. Now that is a good idea....and you can mop it :-)

  3. I could help you paint the rug if you let me... I'll be down your way VERY soon!! What a gorgeous place. Sigh

  4. Beautiful space! Have a glorious weekend, Kellie xx

  5. Brilliant, adds detail in the summer and if in winter, you need the cosiness of an actual rug, just pop it on top.

  6. yes i loved this place too!! there was a really huge rug they painted on an outdoor terrace that just looked amazing - views and all. love the urns as table legs too!

    hope you're having a great weekend darl! jxx
