Gustavian Style House in the South of England

Yes, Swedish Gustavian style is happening to be the order of the day here! Even if this is not your style, this house definitely has a curious story to narrate, a story that is worth listening to! found via here.
I don't know how it feels to reside daily in a space like this, but the more i examine the pictures the more i feel drawn to all the different shadows of whites reigning here  -- from the warm tones of condensed milk to dazzlingness of beaten egg whites, lots of intricate details are curious to look at, and i like how the atmosphere of royalness is harmonized with nostalgic pleasantness of rural manor...

Interiors with Ethnic Touch

... a new bunch of interiors with an ethnic touch -- North African and some Ottoman chic! Hand-picked specially for our today's inspiration! enJoy! :)
↑ left - I always love richly carved wooden furniture (a cupboard in the background seems to be somehow one of such kind), but this time two big white drops with silvery tips draw all my attention!  + ↑ right - ...GREY ;/...it seems i can bear any colour normally avoided, if the style is Arabic or Desi! to me, it excuses any wrong colour palettes, uncomfortable proportions and whatever we could feel tough about!
Style and details always save it all, don't you agree? :))
These awesome spaces are all created by a Turkish interior designer, SERDAR GÜLGÜN, a renowned expert of classical Ottoman style.

... and, finally, this pretty bedroom:  such cool tone of mint is interesting, the one i could play with + usually, i don't like stucco work when it's plain white, but once it is coloured, it becomes a stylish element in my eyes :) + a compact dresser by the rear wall, small tables, wooden painted wardrobe and a chest complement the room!

Mushrooms & Pear Salad

Time to eat, and eat healthy! I'd like to share with you my recently improvised salad with mushrooms, pear, tomatoes & ...something else!
1. Roast in olive oil, separately, sliced oyster mushrooms or champignons and finely chopped garlic (i always use a garlic press). Add sea salt & black pepper to taste, set aside.
2.  In a bowl, mix together several sorts of green  salads. Add large but thin slices of pear and cherry  tomatoes cut in halves.
3. Season with fresh lime juice to taste and sprinkle with grated cheese (Parmesan or any other hard sorts suit the best).
4. Lay out onto a large plate adding a few thin slices of lime.
5. Once the salad is ready, you should add some more olive oil for better seasoning.
