ever thought of escaping it all and moving to a small greek island? yep, me too. and that’s exactly what Australian artist, designer and photographer Claire Lloyd and her British partner, artist Matthew Usmar Lauder have done, leaving london for the easy life along the agean sea. featured in house and garden this is their lovely, whitewashed home in lesvos, a small island village. claire has even written my greek island home, an ode to living the good life in greece and traditional greek recipes from her neighbors.

  1. After having seen these pictures I am about to pack my suitcases right away!!! But I have to admit, that after a whileunder the greek sun I would miss the buzz of the city….

  2. oh be still my heart …. i would love to be enjoying that lovely HOME and all its sunshine both inside and out !
    YOU have made yourself a beautiful home … enjoy !

  3. It’s always nice to see “new life” in an old house. This home being in Lesvos (and not one of the Cycladic islands), means that it wasn’t originally all white-washed. And hence, I’m honestly glad that they decided to keep some turquoise accents in order to preserve some of its original character.
