The Barn

Dating from the 1820s this historic stone barn in Tasmania has been lovingly restored by its architect owners. The award winning conversion keeps as much of the existing building fabric as possible. "The original sandstone walls are exposed both internally and externally. The timber shingled roof and existing beams contrast with the new kitchen and bathroom insertion. The Barn is light and open, yet simultaneously cosy." Located in Hobart's CBD it's the perfect base for exploring the historic Australian city. It's definitely on my bucket list.

A new visit to 40 Winks

It has been some time since I have featured 40 Winks, dubbed the world's first 'micro boutique hotel' when it opened in 2009. This 2 guest room space in East London is packed with charm and whimsy and I had to share more photos because it is absolutely stunning. (It is designed by David Carter)

The Steam Hotel

What was once an 18 story steam power plant in Västerås, Sweden is now an absolutely stunning hotel complete with 227 rooms, an 800m2 spa, rooftop restaurant (and another on the main floor), outdoor terrace with pool and gorgeous views of Lake Mälaren. I just got back from a vacation south but holy smokes I am ready to re-pack my bags and head here! Thank you Thomas for the link to these photos of the Steam Hotel via Femina

A colourful Sydney holiday apartment

If you look closely this Tamarama Beach apartment is actually light, bright and very white but it's the colourful pops of artwork and accessories that amp up that holiday feel. Oh and let's not forget the view. Nothing says Aussie beach getaway more than an endless ocean view and a scurry across hot asphalt to get to the sand on a summer's day. If you want to make today's daydream a reality you can find out more at Contemporary Hotels.

Swimming in the jungle

Did anyone get a memo saying we had to come back from Bali? (Tuesday's post here.) I know I didn't so I'm sitting pool side at Jungle Fish, the no beach ... beach club in Ubud. Hurry up and join me. I'm already on my second drink.
