A rustic and refined log cabin

Tammy Connor's impeccably curated traditional style transformed this charming log cabin with the most beautiful weathered wood into an absolute gem. Tammy's approach of taking such a rough, rustic structure and making it look so refined yet comfortable is quite something. I adore everything about this.

A nautical summer retreat in Sag Harbour

When I think of summer I start dreaming about cottages and cabins and beach houses, and this summer retreat in Sag Harbour, New York is a little gem and a great place to spend warm summer weekends. Designed by Elizabeth Cooper, its nautical vibe with blues, stripes, pops of red and shiplap works so well in this environment. And those bleached wood floors have me swooning.

A sympathetically restored country home in England

Another British gem of a location home I came across via Shoot Factory. This 4 bedroom home has been restored whilst maintaining many of the original features. Check out come of those floorboards! Also loving the unpainted exposed ceiling beams and plaster walls. And that kitchen is a total dream. So much potential outdoors too. So lovely.

A simple beauty

It's a little bit Scandi and a little bit Shaker. A little bit Arts and Crafts, a little bit country and definitely contemporary. You'd think that it might be a little bit confused but this renovation in Flinders, Victoria by Melbourne-based interior designers Austin Design Associates is stylish, welcoming and quite simply beautiful. (The kitchen is a dream!)

Hex Cottage at Wilderness Reserve

I could not resist sharing just one more property available at Wilderness Reserve....because look how cute this cottage is!!! What a perfect setting for a little romantic honeymoon getaway. A dreamy thatched former forester's cottage for two, electricity-free, candlelit and set in woods overlooking its own meadow. In Hex Cottage, built in the Regency 'cottage orné' (or decorated cottage) style, an Esse wood-burning range in the kitchen provides all the hot water and heating, though there are open fires in the sitting room and bedroom. In the kitchen, think original bread ovens, brick floors and butler sinks. Swing open the door to discover your own herb garden, store for the all-important logs and wilderness beyond. In the bedroom, candles and a fairy-tale canopy above the king-size Hypnos bed set the scene.
