Home Tour I - An Colorful and Eclectic home on the Adriatic Coast.

Remember the post Splash on White ? Didn't get to read yet? Go here to read it. Today's post is an perfect extension of that. I have seen this home first on ELLE DECOR's March issue and cannot wait to share with you all.

Vibrant Colors on white walls is what makes this home as beautiful as it is and is a perfect portrait of Holi, spring festival also known as the festival of colours and love.
As a Tribute to Holi I bring to you this Katha(Story) of Rang(Colors).

Beautiful vacation home on the Adraitic Coast in Puglia, Italy. Which is a three-hour flight from London but centuries away from the corporate bustle- A perfect getaway for London-based fashion designer Liza Bruce and her husband, artist Nicholas Alvis Vega, who have chosen this to be their vacation home.

Moroccan wood screens surround a veranda; the pillows are covered in ikats from Uzbekistan.

ROOF TERRACE, An Ethiopian bed under an awning made with Kenyan fabrics on the roof terrace; the cushions are by Lysa Bruce herself. Everything has been deliberately kept simple and light, with as little furniture as possible

In a sitting room, both the table and hand-carved wood chair are Ethiopian, the shell chandelier is from Bali, and the straw rug is Moroccan.

In the kitchen and dining area, a Moroccan folding table is topped with a tin tray, the stool is African, an Italian baroque-style lampshade is made with an African fabric, and the straw mat is Moroccan.

In the master bedroom, the bedcover is made from African textiles, and a remnant of a shield from Papua New Guinea was painted by Alvis Vega.
In Guest Bedroon, a woven screen from Burundi serves as a headboard in a guest room; the bedcover is of West African kente cloth, the wall was painted a custom color to match, and the floor mat is Indonesian.

In the living room, a painting by Alvis Vega hangs above a Moroccan straw sofa; the wood screen doors, hexagonal table, and straw rug are Moroccan, and the chair is Ethiopian.

These colors are an absolute eye candy, what do you all say?? ... They sure are for me and the vibes of these colors are definitely making my week brighter in the middle of dull, gloomy and C-O-L-D weather .

Until I see you all again, Wishing you my dear readers a Very Happy & Vibrant Holi and a Vibrant week ahead!
