At this special time, most of us probably cannot travel far away to see and explore different cultures. But thanks to internet, we are able to virtually experience some of the most amazing exotic destinations to cope with life that is full of uncertainties. Today, we are going to share with you a beautiful Lebanon getaway that is our love at the first sight.
Located in in the mountains near Kfour, a village about 45 minutes north of Beirut, the Beit Trad guesthouse , a traditional Lebanese mountain home that Sarah Trad restored and converted into a guesthouse with the help of architect Fadlo Dagher and interior designer Maria Ousseimi welcomes guests with its Lebanese tradition of hospitality. The guest house also doubles as Sarah’s own personal retreat.
In the picture above, we love how sumptuous Rubelli velvet fabric and modern Saarinen table and chairs juxtaposes with old world vintage pieces such as an antique rug, a chandelier and wall prints. The mix of present and past always injects interest and personality to any space. What really draw us to this living room is its cheerful and fashion-forward red, plump and purple color palette which stands out from a white wall backdrop. What cannot be better to sit in a beautiful room with fresh flowers, a lot of books, artwork and vintage pieces and of course sunshine.
In the above picture, we are really impressed by a Classic Blue tablecloth with vintage local prints serves as a canvas to showcase the delicate dinnerware and beautiful local roses. Different tasteful textiles on the dining chairs in similar color families add visual interest yet still stay cohesive. When things aren’t right in the world, wouldn’t be nice to just sit at a beautiful cozy table to take time to enjoy a meal or have a cup of tea?
Who wouldn’t love to sit here to enjoy a breathtaking Mediterranean sunset view? A striped upholstered cushy lounge chair invites us to take a seat on it with a cocktail. The mood here is casual and relaxing.
