Cat Hill Barn

Nestled in the rolling hills of Yorkshire is this award winning renovation of a grade ll listed, 16th century barn. Liverpool based Snook Architects have be restrained in their approach. The open plan space is contemporary but the character of the historic barn is not compromised. Carefully avoiding the twee and the clichéd it is a minimalist exultation of the bones of a once working rural structure.

Loft love

OMG I love this loft (apparently that of designer Paola Navone)! The row of windows, the original wood flooring, the modular kitchen separated my a row of tall cabinets, the white painted stone, the massive sofa and table to fit my entire family!!!! (Via Jean-Marc Palisse)

Guest house

Never mind the main house, I'm sure it is lovely. I'm moving into the guest house. Perched in the hills above Sonoma, California with views of vineyards and oak trees is this beautifully crafted stone cottage by Nicole Hollis. I would be the house guest from hell though. Why would I ever want to leave?

Zash

It's a Monday. I want to escape the working week. Time to runaway to a luxury getaway faraway, at least in my dreams. Zash is, the the hotel's own words "a country boutique hotel where historical fragments meet a contemporary taste, in an 'elegantly quiet' project, to let nature's physicality emerge, to respect our past vestige and to satisfy our traveller's needs. A place which is refined in its rooms, rural in its context and vital for the soul."

Old meets new in a startling juxtaposition that makes each element stronger. Clean, minimalist lines enhance the crumbling stone shell of the original building. Perched on the hillside amidst citrus trees Zash is in eastern Sicily in the province of Catania. A building of contrasts just like Sicily is a land of contrasts, hulking Mt Etna and crystal blue seas, barren lava and rich agricultural land, where the warmth of stone meets sleek manmade finishes, rugged and luxe.

Dobrodošli u Prugu

All the hard work is done. The doors are open. Guests are arriving. Welcome to Pruga, two acres of peace and quiet and bed and breakfast. After many years in the UK, Andrijana and Vanja returned to Croatia, to the idyllic countryside of Istria, to just outside the tiny village of Lovrinići. Blood, sweat and tears and finally they created a beautiful stone building containing two apartments for guests, a lovely pool for hot summer days and all the tranquility one could want. Oh and the bars and restaurants that abound in this part of Croatia. More on their website and you can follow their progress on their blog.
