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. The gîte is the creation of architectural photographers Anne and Jean-Luc Laloux and is a sister property to La Classe which we featured here.

Appartement Saint Paul 

I have fallen in love with this 18th century apartment in the heart of Le Marais, Paris. Designed by interior architect Margaux Beja, it is a stunning blend of old-world and modern. With a Scandinavian feel, this space is cozy and bright. A beautiful walnut wall hides spaces like the laundry and bathroom, and a glass wall separates the bedroom from main living space allowing light to flow through. It is pretty much perfection.

Scorpios Mykonos

I spent Friday daydreaming of a hotel in Paris. Today I've run away to Greece, to the island of Mykonos, to a beach club and restaurant that takes my breath away. Simplicity and beauty and luxury. A truly stunning location and a truly stunning complex. Scorpios Mykonos.

A Tuscan kitchen

It has been a while since I featured the brilliant kitchens of UK-based design firm Artichoke. They sent over photos of a recently completed Tuscan-inspired kitchen that is so beautifully designed and SO spacious. I am in love. A variety of furniture styles were deployed in this bespoke kitchen to give the impression that the room had evolved over time. The central islands were designed in plaster, with hand planed and finished arched chestnut doors at the ends, typical of the local vernacular. The dresser uses bespoke espagnolette ironmongery with rounded inside moulds on the lay-on door frame to introduce a French element, while the furniture flanking the Wolf range oven is more Georgian in feel.

A cottage in a forest

I spotted this year-round cottage on Décormag yesterday and had to share because this is my dream summer getaway....except it needs to be lake-fronted. And maybe in a warmer climate, like Mexico. ;) This stunner is located in the Eastern Townships of Québec and was designed by Atelier Barda. I am dying over the black stained wood exterior, and the simplicity of the interior is all you need in a second residence. And a must in a dwelling with surroundings this beautiful - those large windows framing scenes of the forest as art. (Photos: Yves Lefebvre)
