Captains Rest

Far, far away on the magical island of Tasmania is a secluded fishing hamlet. Not so much a hamlet, more a collection of historic shacks on the water's edge. It's beautiful beyond belief. That's why it's a world heritage area. It's just where I crave to be right now. I want to ignore that it's Monday. I want to escape to a simple shack, curl up before the fire with a book and wonder what sort of fish you're going to catch for dinner. Yes there's room for one more. You can fish can't you? The name of this magical getaway? Captains Rest.

Island House 

Pardon me please. I know it's only Tuesday. I know I shouldn't feel the need for a virtual getaway this early in the week. I should at least make it to hump day but I can't. I wish I could escape for real to this beautiful house right on the beach. Simple luxury, an amazing location on the isolated Indonesian island of Gili Meno just a fast boat from Bali, no cares or worries except for sand between the toes. Crusoe House via The Island Houses.

The Talbott Hotel

I spotted this architecture and design project by Kara Mann in her portfolio and thought it was fabulous. It is the Talbott Hotel in Chicago that got the makeover of a lifetime thanks to Kara's edgy glam style. I found some photos on their Facebook page. It wasn't pretty then but it sure is now!!!

Beautiful Riad

A chill wind is whistling around my house, tugging on windows and licking under doors. I'm cold and miserable and need a little lift. Time for a virtual getaway. Ah Morocco can you get anymore perfect? Sunshine sliding down smooth plaster walls, dappled shadows on plunge pools, mid century classics mixed with medina finds. A beautiful escape to the Beautiful Riad Marrakesh.

Locanda La Gelsomina - a hotel in Malta

A huge thanks to Steven, who reached out to us recently about his beautiful boutique concept hotel in Malta called Locanda La Gelsomina. What I would do to get a plane trip to Malta to be able to visit in person! The restored structure was built in the early 1500's and contains 4 suites decorated with antiques from places like Mongolia and Birma. It also houses a teahouse and a shop carrying exotic trinkets, home accessories and furnishings. Sounds and looks like heaven!
