Details in white, stone, lightly washed wood, blue, turquoise, and pastel pink and olive will make a huge difference if added to your living room, bedroom or bathroom.
Kilims, rugs, pillows, and small decorative items are just some of the Cycladic-inspired basics you'll need to transform any space into an island retreat. White bedspreads and linens, linens, and details like small bouquets of wild flowers or a straw hat casually thrown on your bed are perfect for getting into the less is more spirit of Cyclades.
Vintage touches are also a must-have - antique furniture with a modern twist or tall vases used as ultra-chic coffee tables are the perfect way to bring the Aegean breeze into your living room.

The best time to visit Italy are the months of May, June, and September. Compared to the peak summer months of July and August, these months offer more comfortable temperatures and there are fewer crowds ( except around Easter ). The country experiences four classic seasons per year, although there is a marked difference between the wetter, cooler North and the drier, warmer South. The rainiest months pretty much everywhere are usually October and November.
Fall ( September – November ) : temperatures cool down gradually, although September is usually still very pleasant. Expect crisp fall leaves and some sunnier days, but plan for wet weather too. Fall carries many of the same benefits as spring, but with slightly less predictable weather.
Winter : temperatures in the South remain mild in winter, while Northern Italy is normally wet and cold. Winter in the Italian Alps is fantastic though for skiing and snowboarding, but the ski resorts do get crowded so book early.
Travelers wishing to visit Italy can use a bus, train, plane, or boat to get there. Most tourists arrive by plane though, often landing in Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport, the country’s busiest airport. This is the preferred point of entry in Italy when you want to visit Rome, or saut the entire country. Click here for a continuously updated list of airlines that offer direct flights to Rome.
