our little guest flat in Kas

It’s not that I am a pretentious person, really…but I haven’t seen this small flat since 2 years and now that I am looking at it’s photos, I find it really nice! Worthy enough to put in an interior design blog, am I wrong?

The Tv doesn’t match the rest of the flat but those pictures were made to rent the flat 😉

We’ve taken those pictures 5 years ago when my mother finished the renovations in it…she did the painting of the floors, the tree painting on the small bedroom’s and the flowers on the bigger bedroom’s walls, the mosaics on the top of the coffee table, the kitchen’s wall and the terrace’s sofa with the top of the table.


Summer rental duplex flat in Kas/Turkey


I am renting our summer flat for holidays in Kas/Turkey. You can have more information about Kas here or here, and see some nice pictures here or even more here. It’s a 120 m2 duplex with 1 living room, 1 fully equipped kitchen, 2 rooms on the upper floor (1 with double bed 1 with twin beds), 3 balconys (2 for each bedroom, 1 for the living room), 2 bathrooms (1 on the upper floor, 1 next to the living area). The view is stunning from the balcony, the flat is 5 min by walk to the center, only 60 m to the beach (kucukcakil area a.k.a small pebble beach). You have a parking area, wireless internet, air-condition in each room.

So if ever you would like to visit south of Turkey, the idyllic mediterranean costs, please mail me to for further information, prices and availability.

some snap shots  from the balcony:

old house in Turkey

These are some snapshots from my elder aunt’s 120 year old house in the Black Sea region of Turkey (north). The house wasn’t inhabited since years, so it’s not in a perfect shape. and my aunt’s family has a kind of traditional way of living…but i like the vintage details, the turquoise walls (don’t even need to mention this probably) and the hand crocheted bed cover.

They gave me yellow-black -white printed pillows when I told them that I loved it! The fabric is from an old dress that my grandma once owned!

All about my mother – Part III

And finally here are the other two guest houses’ pictures. That issue of the HomeArt magazine was very generous about my mother’s (aka Bihter Turkfiliz) project.(i am sorry for the lousy scans by the way)

I love this last guest house!The rock with birds on it and the tree makes this place a Tim Burtonesque decor (says the editor of the magazine).

In fact, the most fun part of these houses were the bathrooms for me. We don’t see them much in detail here, but each of them are designed to make it possible to watch the view from inside, and the best part is that nobody sees you from the outside!



all about my mum part II

I must say having grown up in this mediterranean village called Kas, this is the dream house for me. I hope that one day, i’ll have a similar place designed by my mum and i’ll stare peacefully the beautiful sunsets from my garden, while my child (or children?) is playing next to me.

The first picture on the left is the small bridge between the main house and the guest house. The doors are all crafted by a very talented local wood worker. Some of the furniture in the house is from the owner’s (mostly the antique ones). My mother picked the rest from different stores such as Mudo Concept etc…All the natural looking wood furnitures (stools, bench etc. are crafted by the same woodworker)

And here she is, i miss her soooooo freakingly much!

decologue proudly presents her first post: all about my mother

I am happy to finally launch my blog. This is still the beta version though. Here is my first sharing with you. And i am so proud of it:

It’s my adorable mum who built this wonderful villa last year. The house is in the Mediterranean cost of Turkey, in a small village called Kas. The pictures are all taken from the turkish HomeArt Magazine. (editor: Nahide Toros and photographer: Ersen Corekci, all my greetings to them) I was there most of the during the construction, and i can tell you that she really puts her heart on everything she does. For this project for instance, she did all the ceramics by her self (fish on the swimming pool, the turning dervish sculpture in the garden, mosaics on the dining area outside, the ceramic tree on the bathroom’s wall…) as well as the stencils and drawings on the pillows. There are so many details, i probably don’t remember everything!

I love the way she kept the big rock in the middle of the house, it is so beautifully integrated in the decor. The same rock continues in the small batroom (in the last small picture), you can see the reflection on the mirror.
