Is it time to leave this country yet? With only the odd fleeting taste of Summer every three days around here, it must be? Well, I have found a slice of bliss right here online. Making friends on Twitter a couple of weeks ago I met the lovely blogger of My Paradissi, Eleni from Heraklion in Crete. Eleni’s page is awash with images of relaxing homes and island paradises. Simple relaxed living spaces and lovely tips on how to achieve the look. With a mixture of her own beautiful photographs and inspiring images collected from around the web, this is the most tranquil spot online, sharing simple things we can all do to create a little paradise inside and outside at home. Below are just a few ways to bring some island style in to your world. A palette of white and Grecian sea blue all drenched in sunshine. Eating out doors with pretty linens and surroundings of green. Fresh air and favourite food tins collected for plant pots, and simple flowers from the yard popped in bud vases all along a shelf. For even more Greece oriented things try Eleni’s newer blog Grecian Paradise.
