The Chequit

Is it just me or is this week d-r-a-g-g-i-n-g along? I just can't take anymore. Time for a virtual getaway and since summer has just begun in the northern hemisphere how about we run away to the Hamptons? To Shelter Island to be precise. I've booked us into the quaint but cool boutique inn The Chequit. Trad with a twist and a soothing pink, yellow and grey palette ... inside that is. The exterior screams summer in simple white and green, its porches filled with wicker furniture and pops of bright colour.

The Gaztelur in France

Gaztelur is a restaurant / flower shop / antique shop / banquet hall and one of the most breathtaking venues I have ever seen. Designed by Marta de la Rica, it is an eclectic blend of vintage pieces from just about every era making each space refreshingly unique. I am in awe of the original architectural details that lend such a stunning backdrop to the furnishings and those incredible chandeliers.

Rae's on Wategos

Hump day getaway anyone? Rae's on Wategos has been a Byron Bay icon for many years. Now with a recent refurbishment designed by Tamsin Johnson it is even more fabulous. Moorish meets Mediterranean, whitewash meets sand and surf, elegant yet relaxed and all just steps from stunning Wategos Beach on the most easterly point of Australia. I couldn't think of a better virtual escape. Can you?

Nantucket dreaming

From its dark panelled public areas and quirky maritime touches to its light and breezy bedrooms with layered bed linens from John Robshaw and Les Indiennes, Greydon House on the island of Nantuket off Cape Cod  is the perfect virtual getaway for this hump day Wednesday. I'm fantasizing about strolling through the boutique shops in the morning followed by a long beach walk, warming up by a crackling fire with a drink and a dog eared book before by a fabulous dinner in the restaurant. With interiors by Roman and Williams I don't think I want to wake up from this lovely daydream.
