It's a wrap

It's brutal yet at times soft. It's rough and luxe. It's concrete and steel, rubber and leather, rope, wool and velvet. It's industrial with a big city vibe yet zen like and eastern. It's in the Upper East Side of Manhattan or should I say was. It's from the mid 90s, designed by Pierce Allen. A slight tweak, new photos and we would never know. Good design stands the test of time.

Hotel San José

It's mid week and I'm still craving a getaway. Today I'm dreaming of Hotel San José in Austin, Texas. Concrete floors and minimalist interiors. Funky, cool and comfortable. And oh the lush green surrounds. What more could you want?

Fasano Punta del Este

Run away! Run away! Dream of a way to get away. It's Monday and you're chained to your work desk. Take a little time to fantasise about Hotel Fasano Punta del Este in Uruguay. A breathtaking setting for a stylish complex designed by Isay Weinfeld. Whether leaning on the sill of the indoor pool or watching the sun go down with cocktails on the deck I'm sure you can escape through your computer screen for just a little while. No one will notice. I promise.

Stalking a family beach house

I'm stalking cool today. From its childlike "house" shape to its oak and concrete combo, this home at Barwon Heads, Victoria is colourful, fun and all about modern family living . Love the kitchen, the living dining room, the alfresco decks and who would not want their own skate ramp. Told you it was cool! Link here while it lasts.

House 'o concrete

This home, located in Tel Aviv, Israel and designed by Axelrod Architects is all about concrete. It's EVERYWHERE. A little too cold perhaps? I think so, but with some walls clad in wood and some wood flooring (I'd even welcome a bit of carpet) this is one sweet home. It may be cold and minimal but it's got ALOT of windows to keep things bright and warm. I love the long narrow window above the kitchen countertop, and the different levels of the home keep things interesting (love the floor #'s on the walls in case you weren't sure where you were).
