Tropical paradise

Thursday - the sad forgotten sister of Friday. No one ever yells "Thank God it's Thursday". No one ever counts down the last few hours until after work drinks or the freedom of the weekend. Thursday is a plod-along day, a "let's get it over so we can go to sleep and yell TGIF the next morning" sort of day. So here is my Thursday gift to you, a virtual escape to brighten up the stolid workaday. Tamarind Beach at Paradise Cove, a compound of three houses (for vacation rental) in the tropical paradise of Vanuatu. A sophisticated taste of island life steps from crystal blue waters and coral reefs. This is one virtual getaway I wish I could make in real life.

Earthy neutrals

Tactile fabrics merge with earthy neutrals. Ancient blends with modern. Rough co-exists with luxurious. Where every piece is completely unique. A Chicago row house designed by Michael Del Piero

Garrow Kedigian's Montreal townhouse

I stumbled upon the Montreal townhouse of New York interior designer Garrow Kedigian and had to share because it is all kinds of traditional fabulousness. He is a master at making classic look chic, and his colours selections are outstanding. I particularly love the colours in the dining room - that wall colour (Benjamin Moore's Caribbean Teal) is to die for. Photos by Paul Raeside for House Beautiful

Modern farmhouse

From its traditional facade all the way up those stairs to the colourful attic room this house is the perfect balancing act. Farmhouse yet modern living, the crisp bite of white and the deep moody greys, parent and kid friendly. Casually elegant, not at all stuffy. It's fresh and fun and perfect for a young family. Modern farmhouse in Connecticut by New York based interior designers Chango & Co.

Traditional love

Where you expect a chandelier to be hanging in every single room. Traditional, classical, ornate, fancy schmancy, by British designer Robert Kime. (I need to find a huge sparkly chandelier for my dressing room - I am especially desperate for one now with this post).
