Plus the chance to win a prize from the DT for Sears range.
Debbie Travis has had a pretty crazy few years. Renovating a villa in Tuscany? Check. Using said villa to host scores of female retreats? Check. Don’t get us wrong, restoring an ancient Tuscan villa to its full glory is no easy feat—Travis now has the local planning department on speed dial—but we think you’ll agree that the results are astounding. Take a sneak peak inside Travis’ villa below, and enter our competition to win a set of bowl from her DT line for Sears here.Lounging in LuxuryTravis’s combination of comfortable sofas and high-end finishings results in a lounge space fit for a queen (or a dozen of them when one of her eight annual retreats is taking place).Soaking in StyleThe mosaic-style tiled floor in the bathroom (which is massively on trend for 2016) contrasts perfectly with the original exposed woodwork and neutral bathroom fixtures.Cosy KitchenIt can be difficult to create a warm atmosphere with such high ceilings, but the designer guru’s flagstone and dark surfaces invoke a welcoming vibe where anyone would say yes to a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, from what we can gather).Shell ShockThese feature sinks in one of the guest bathrooms offer a nod to the designer’s stylish flare, while still complementing the home’s original features.Absolute Al FrescoThis mammoth table on Travis’s patio is crying out for morning breakfasts in the Tuscan sunshine, or late dinners that linger far into dusk.Nature’s BountyLiving in such a rural environment benefits more than just the aesthetics; fresh fruit and produce are aplenty at Casa Del Travis.Typically TuscanThe preserved environment might have made renovating the home a little more difficult, but you can accept the extra effort required when treated with such unspoiled surroundings. Enter to win a selection of Travis’s Tuscan-inspired outdoor dinnerware here.
