Dar Bibin: A Blue & White Guest House in Djerba, Tunisia

Isabelle et Gérard Planchon gave up their respective legal and architecture practices in Belgium and opened an incredible guest house on the island of Djerba in Tunisia — the largest island of of North Africa. Using ONLY white and blue colored decor, the home is furnished with designs by Verner Panton, Philippe Starck, Ferruccio Laviani, Jasper Morrison, Frank Gehry, and Richard Hutten. The result is a minimalist, though charming, combination of modern design and Djerbian architecture. Click through to take a mini-tour of the blue and white house...

The house is located in the village of Erriadh, which is 15 minutes from the international airport of Djerba-Zarzis. The village is known as a place where Jews lived since the VIth Century B.C., after the destruction of the Salomon Temple in Jerusalem.
