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.

A 300 year old restored coachman's cottage in Germany

There are several styles of interiors that I am drawn to, and this 300 year old restored coachman's cottage in Germany owned by designer Jeanette Walther embodies my favourite. Rustic, timeworn, weathered, textured, rough. Shades of brown and black and grey and earth, barnboard, elements from nature, chalky walls, peeling paint. Picture perfect.

A rustic and refined log cabin

Tammy Connor's impeccably curated traditional style transformed this charming log cabin with the most beautiful weathered wood into an absolute gem. Tammy's approach of taking such a rough, rustic structure and making it look so refined yet comfortable is quite something. I adore everything about this.

La Granja Ibiza

Is it too early in the week to indulge in a virtual getaway? No I didn't think so. OK drink in all these photos, close your eyes and daydream at your desk. La Granja Ibiza was once a private residence but now a small hotel with only 5 rooms and a separate guesthouse. Dark and moody, imperfect and beautiful, an oasis from the hot sun and even hotter night life of this party island. There's even a biodynamic farm. Perfection.
