Carmel Valley dreaming

Pinch me! I'm dreaming. Dreaming of staying in this beautiful suite at the Carmel Valley Ranch designed by Nicole Hollis. A modern interpretation of ranch style, plush and textured. Curled up by the fire or soaking in the tub? Hmmmm. Tough decision. I can't believe I made it all the way to Wednesday before planning my virtual escape.

Home & Delicious

I love to start the working week with a virtual holiday have you noticed? Now if I could only find a way to actually make it to Reykjavík, Iceland to stay at Home & Delicious, in one of their three beautifully refurbished apartments in a quiet residential area in the heart of the city, then I'd be beyond happy. Only problem is I can't make up my mind which apartment to stay in. I'll have to try all three. Via Welcome Beyond.

Bassiviere

Is it only Tuesday? Not Friday? Still most of the working week in front of me? Urgh! Time for a virtual escape to the French countryside. To Bassiviere in the Lot-et-Garonne region, a tra­di­tional farm­house and 17th cen­tury out­build­ings reimagined as con­tem­po­rary barn chic holiday apartments. Want to runaway with me?

The Imaginarium 

I remember the first time I entered stylist Sibella Court's bijou shop of wonders The Society inc. in Paddington, Sydney. I was overwhelmed by her wonderful wares. I wanted to hide under a table and only crawl out again at closing time and pretend the Paddington terrace house was all mine to explore. Now my fantasies can come true. Sibella has opened a new warehouse in St Peters and the terrace house is available to rent on airbnb.  "An imaginarium ... a quiet oasis offering the curious traveller a treasure trove of curiosities, artisan objects & furniture, a vast reference library ..." See. Dreams do come true.

Hiding out in Hotel Hotel

I'm running away from Christmas. Who else is in? And I'm not escaping to a hip, happening must do destination ... or am I? For a long time many of our nations' capitals have got a bad wrap. Dull, boring hubs of government and not much else. Just ask Kim. She lives in Ottawa. Things are changing, at least in Australia's national capital Canberra. How much more hip and happening can the new Hotel Hotel get? So cool it's positively frosty ... that's if it wasn't so hot. Anyone else want to run to Canberra? At least until Christmas is over?
