La Micheline

It's Wednesday. Hump day. Time for a virtual getaway to the Ardennes region of Belgium, to La Micheline, an old railway station now a holiday home set amongst meadows. If the impressive renovation and rebuild using bluestone, rough hewn wood and concrete isn't enough to get your design juices running there's even an old railway line with trolleys.

Casa Helsinki

I'm still in virtual holiday mode. Still got my virtual bags packed, my virtual passport in hand and I'm ready for my next daydream stopover.

Hotel Henriette Rive Gauche

It's almost like a drinking game. Colour blocking, dirty pastels, plywood, bedside pendant lights and coloured flex, retro furniture, cane mirrors and rooms with great French bones. Moroccan rugs, kilim chairs, sheepskins, leather gym pads as bedhead and indigo. Linen sheets, palm wallpaper, painted floors, tumbling block tiles and cane saucer chairs. Have we got all the trends covered? Who cares! I love it all! I want it all! Anyone else for a Parisian getaway to Hotel Henriette Rive Gauche?
