The Dreamcatcher

After discovering the website of The Dreamcatcher, I am ready to pack my bags, skip work this week and hop on a plane to San Juan, Puerto Rico. This vegetarian B&B is all kinds of bohemian vintage awesomeness and would be such a delightful and cozy getaway from life's monotonous realities...like WEEK FOUR of my foyer being painted/wallpapered. *SHOOT ME* (Photos: Ayasha + Christina)

The elephant in the room

Or should that be the skeleton on the ceiling? It may be the deal breaker if you want to come on my virtual getaway to this loft style apartment in Tribeca, New York which ticks all the boxes. Exposed brick walls, light streaming in the the tall windows, a mini jungle, curios on industrial style shelves, great kitchen ... and the skeleton above the dining table. I've been staring at it for ages trying to work out what the model is actually of. Ichthyosaur? Prehistoric razor toothed dolphin? A cousin of the Loch Ness Monster? It would certainly make for an interesting dinner party conversation. Franklin Place is available through onefinestay

Rivertown Lodge

Welcome to Wednesday. Welcome to hump day. Welcome to my mid week daydream. We're packing our bags and heading to Hudson, New York, to the Rivertown Lodge, a boutique hotel housed, in of all things, an old movie theatre. It's vintage modern meets über cool and it was designed by Brooklyn-based WORKSTEAD. We can sit by the fire in the lobby and chat over coffee or have a drink at the bar but that little nook with the over supply of pillows is mine. A couple for my head, a couple for my feet, one to grab to my belly to balance the book and several to throw at you if you try to steal any.

Because you can never have too many church conversions

It's no secret that Kim and I are very partial to a church conversion and this Methodist Chapel conversion is so sweet and very clever. One of my biggest complaints of this sort of re-design is that the beautiful, tall windows are often unceremoniously chopped in half by the second floor. In this case the upper rooms are tucked in under the roof. The Chapel on the Hill, in Forest-in-Teesdale, England by Evolution Design is available as a holiday home for up to 7 guests. I can feel a virtual road trip on the cards? Meet you in church?

(And in case you hadn't realised it was a winner in the UK Property Awards 2015-2016.)

Morgan's Pub

It's a very slow day in my part of the world with the promise of more of the same over the long weekend. My plans include lazing around the house, perhaps a book, perhaps a little work in the garden, maybe some old school record playing. And as much as I love my own home I wish I was kicking back in Morgan's Pub, now a family home in Peckham, London and part of The Plum Guide.
