Design Inspiration: The Beachy Greek Chic of Santorini

On my bucket list: Santorini, the beautiful Greek island with the hillside villages full of stucco homes with brilliant blue-domed roofs. There, I imagine, every room is always full of light, and every breeze smells like the sea. Browsing through hotel websites, I was struck not just by the beauty of the island, but also by the lovely, spare, effortless elegance of the Greek interiors. Someday I will go to Santorini. In the meantime, I'm thinking about picking up a few things to make my house a little more like an Aegean retreat.
