Glamping Interior in India

For those of us that must do everything in luxury and style has taken the ability to book the most stylishly-in-tune-with-nature getaways you can imagine. Want a tent in India with pluming and leather furnishings? Done. With locations in North American, South/ Central America, United Kingdom, Africa, Europe, Oceania, Asia and the Middle East you’ll find an exotic destination with a resort like glamp site that will suit your fancy [ ..and oh how fancy it will be!].

Below is the interior of the tents at the resort Aman-i-Khás, located north of Jaipur on the outskirts of Ranthambore National Park in India. As sanctuary for India’s exotic wildlife, Ranthambore is one of the best place to see wild tigers in their natural habitat. The tents and resort is just as impressive as the wildlife surrounding it. I love the leather, wood and white theme that keep the safari decor spirit alive while remaining minimal and luxurious.

White Washed Stable House

Transformed from an old horse stable into a charming country residence in Alcácer do Sal, in the Alentejo region of Portugal.  Architectural firm Atelier Data are the masterminds behind transforming this rural building to a contemporary  private residence.

A Grown Up Tree House

German design studio, Baumraum architectures, has been designing tree houses for adults [and kids] since 2003.  They are real houses built between the branches, thus capturing the best landscape. Each house begins pre-fabricated and sized for a smaller living space explains Andreas Wenning, designer and heart of Baumraum, everything else is customizable; materials for the interior surfaces,  furniture etc. The installation is done without damaging the trees. There are no nails or screws that could damage the logs but rather systems such as fabric belts or steel cables that do not impact the branches and allow trees to grow undisturbed. All homes are custom made so the cost depends on the requirements. Tree houses built range from 10,000 to € 120,000, yes euros. Construction time ranges from 3-7 months with the only obstacle being obtaining permits, which are subject to local laws.

The featured tree house below is located in Puglia, Avetrana. The owner lives and works in Milan and wanted to expand their house for rental use: it features 8 square meters of indoor area with views of the surroundings. The interior is a minimal/ modern aesthetic. The wood interior surfaces bode well with the outdoor greenery and the modern furniture with modular pieces work very well in the small space.

Tel Aviv Penthouse with A View

This large penthouse on Antokolski Street in the north of Tel Aviv takes up the entire floor [ 600 square meters ] of the building and boasts a 360 city view.  The studio design company Israel Pitsou Kedem Architects used framed sliding glass walls to surround the entire house “to eliminate the boundaries between inner space and outer space”.

The corridors flow from room to room running along the outer perimeter of the apartment, while the rooms located on the inside never interrupt the views. The centerpiece of the apartment is the large open-plan living area, spacious and bright which may be overshadowed by the infinity pool raised and covered in dark stone that reflect the skyline of Tel Aviv.

Decor wise contemporary Italian and European furniture was used including Vitra, Flos lamps, a Boffi kitchen and a large library from B & B Italy. The pops of color though out the decor add a subtle yet pointed contrast from the grey concrete throughout the penthouse.

Man-Haven, Manready

There is so much awesomeness going on at Manready Mercantile it’s hard to decide where to begin. The decor feels like a rustic hunting lodge reminiscent of a more rugged, outdoorsy Ralph Lauren. The merchandise is a one-stop-shop for quality goods from tobacco pipes, wall hangings, apparel and local coffee, making it a great destination when on the market for a man-gift. The unique thing I love about Manready is that everything is for sale. Their buyer is constantly out shopping for new antique pieces i.e. consoles, sofa’s & rugs etc. So you may find yourself walking out of the shop with anything from beard treatment oil to a leather tufted sofa!

London Loft Minimalism

Located in what used to be an industrial district south of London in Bermondsey, this open concept apartment is an example of historic and new construction merging together. The studio loft, originally from the Victorian period, characterized by it’s typical elongated shape and covered in red bricks, was turned into a  minimal, bright loft with a single bedroom overlooking a green inner courtyard. The project began in 2010, when the owner, a freelance photographer, needed a flexible living space to suit his businesses needs: a functional office apartment with the ability to turn into a photography studio. The architects from the design studio Form chose to create a large open living plan, kitchen with island, rectangular table, a seating area and a long shelf-desk for working. Next to that the bathroom, closet and laundry room, while the master bedroom is separated from the living area through a sliding wall. While the industrial character is evident throughout, the apartment has a cozy atmosphere due to the parquet floor of pine, recovered from an abandoned chapel,  and the whitewashing of all surfaces and fixtures, thus enhancing the interiors’ bright feel.
