A family loft in Brooklyn

It is a loft marathon here at DTI this week! WOHOO! I happened to have found another one over the weekend while on a google search marathon. I came across it via the website of editor/stylist/designer Rebecca Robertson, who designed this Dumbo loft (along with her husband Marco Pasanella) for a family of 4. It is such a fantastic space with exposed brick painted white, an eclectic mix of furnishings and art, and the cutest display of café au lait bowls. My obsession with lofts will never wane if I keep finding such great spaces! Photos via Remodelista by Matthew Williams.

Have we got everything?

Got a good book? Packed your hat? We might do some walking. Definitely the markets. We should be able to pick up some great fresh produce on the drive there so just pack some basics. I plan to cook up a storm in that kitchen. And some really good bath salts. Soaking for an obsecene amount of time is plan B. OK. I think we're ready. Love a weekend away in the country and nothing is more perfect than an historic house and a lush garden setting. Aghadoe Estate, Springmount, Victoria.

A refuge in Spain

I am not done with the virtual vacations, because I hate winter with every ounce of my being. So now I am taking you to Los Corales de Buelna, a municipality in CantabriaSpain. This is the holiday retreat for artist Nikolas Piper and it is the best of everything. Rustic architecture with stone and exposed beams, mostly mid-century decor, and a matching dog. It all works so well together I could spend the entire winter here. EASILY. Via Elle Decor España, photos by Manolo Yllera.

Casa Solaris

Michael Grimm sent along some of his photos that came at the perfect time because I am NOT READY for the 30 cm of snow we are supposed to get and he was complaining about Brooklyn weather. So how about a little virtual trip to Vieques, off Puerto Rico... Designed by architect John Hix, hotel Hix Island House now has a guest house called Casa Solaris, which is entirely run on solar power. The house is designed to take advantage of trade winds, and the concrete is an unexpected contrast to the lush island landscape. The addition of yellow keeps it from being too sterile.
