Velvet Morning

Think of accommodation options for your next stay in London and a canal barge in Maida Vale is not something that immediately springs to mind ... until now. The Velvet Morning (great name) is a gorgeous 57 ft canal boat, with all the comforts of a cosy cottage. Wood burner, claw foot bath, white linens in your cosy cabin and the golden glow of wooden accents. Another fabulous holiday property available via The Plum Guide.

Modern luxury afloat

Contemporary interiors in a relaxing palette of greys and blonde wood with natural textures and all that wonderful light. Modern living over two levels with water views forever. The perfect modern home? No it's the perfect modern house boat on Victoria's Lake Eildon by Melbourne-based interior design firm Pipcorn & Kilpatrick.

My first yacht

On the blog that is. I'm still waiting for the boat in real life. If I did have a yacht I'd have one just like this refurbed 1961 cruiser by Peter Wilds Design. Warm polished wood, gleaming metal, sophisticated black and white. Pass me my boat shoes and my captain's cap. It's love at first sight.

Glimpse at a houseboat

Jansje sent us a peek at another one of her photography projects - this time a houseboat in Amsterdam. (Check out previous posts of her photos here). The owner, who is in one of the photos, has done the rebuilding of this houseboat himself, and happens to be an interior designer (see his basic website). I think living in a houseboat would be a blast! When I first saw houseboats up in Yellowknife (that was back in my university days) I was mesmerized. Coincidentally I saw an episode of House Hunters yesterday where someone was looking for a houseboat in Seattle and was reminded what a cool lifestyle that would be....especially if you can take your house out for a spin down the river!
