Arcachon Bay is in the western part of France, a place that is under the radar (compared to places like Provence) and I think that makes it an even more idyllic place for a vacation house.
The midcentury-meets-industrial style, all the gorgeous wood and compact size make for a great little cabin, don’t you think?
The past two weeks around FTRB have turned out to be a little more – shall we say – exciting than I’d like and I am so ready for a quiet, relaxing weekend. I hope you have a restful and relaxing one too. See you Monday!

A couple of weeks ago I talked about how much I appreciate traditional dwellings being adapted for new uses. Here’s another great example. This beautiful vacation home in Portugal is really a compound made up of four traditional fishing huts.
What’s so wonderful about it is all of the natural materials and refurbished pieces are a perfect fit for the environment and the spirit of these structures.
It also reminded me of this awesome cover of Elle Decor from January this year:
This was also a Portuguese fishing hut. I’m intrigued.

Is it obvious I have vacations and vacation homes on the brain this week? I recently saw these photos of the San Giorgio Hotel in Mykonos and it had to go straight into my vacation house inspiration file.
Remember one of my favorite vacation house styles was the Greek Islands? The interior design of the San Giorgio is the perfect FTRB global modern take on that style.
Plenty of white (of course) with ethnic textiles and accessories from around the world and a mix of modern and rustic furniture all work really well with the architecture.
It’s also very similar to my #1 favorite vacation house style. It’s one that could translate to almost any oceanside location – which is the plan!
Have a great weekend, everyone – maybe hanging out in a spot as idyllic as that last shot? See you Monday!
