The perfect weekend retreat

For an easy-going, relaxed weekend, Katrin Arens' beautiful
country home would be the perfect tranquil retreat.

Tall, sweepy willows over peaceful water. I can imagine just lying there
listening to the water or the wind through the leaves.


I love this rustic, open kitchen. The open shelves have a casual air and make you feel free to grab a mug and get yourself some tea, or help yourself to whatever goodies are on hand.



The use of reclaimed wood throughout the space works well with the rustic, country setting and make you feel more in harmony with nature surrounding you.


This beautiful space is open and airy and with rough exposed beams and ceiling to top it off. I'm helplessly drawn to all white interiors - there's something so serene and calming about them.



Katrin has two young daughters who are likely the owners of these darling white dresses. They are so perfect in this space - the stylist, Daniela Cavestany, deserves extra credit for this. And up above - a modern, deconstructed chandelier.

I would love to cozy up in this spot on a rainy day with a good book.
I love watching rain stream down a window from indoors.

The most perfect spot for an afternoon nap.


I hope you're enjoying a relaxing Sunday...
