Carmel Valley dreaming

Pinch me! I'm dreaming. Dreaming of staying in this beautiful suite at the Carmel Valley Ranch designed by Nicole Hollis. A modern interpretation of ranch style, plush and textured. Curled up by the fire or soaking in the tub? Hmmmm. Tough decision. I can't believe I made it all the way to Wednesday before planning my virtual escape.

The Kettle Black

I'd say let's meet for brunch tomorrow morning but I think the wait for a table may cruel the hipster experience. Looks so cool though and the reviews have been good. The Kettle Black in South Melbourne. It's apple minty green, marble, wood and hints of gold goodness elevates it above the usual grunge coffee/cafe experience. Delicious design by Studio You Me.

Cantilevered in the woods

You know your friends would be bugging you constantly to spend boring winter weekends at your cabin if this was yours. And in the summer? Absolutely! Another perfectly executed home by _naturehumaine. Having bought a beautiful plot of wooded land in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, the client dreamt of building a country house that would be in perfect symbiosis with its natural environment. The house is characterized by two stacked volumes; a wooden clad volume anchored into the mountain supports a cantilevering ground floor volume above. This gable roofed volume raised into the air gives the sensation that the house is floating amongst the trees. Vast views of Mount Orford and the valley below are framed by a long horizontal strip window. The kitchen and master bathroom are carved out of a black volume at the center of the house dividing living spaces from the master bedroom.

Snow

I'm dreaming of a weekend in the snow. I'm sure winterphobe Kim will scoff at my hankering for the white stuff but snow is so much better when you're looking at it from the picture window of a renovated barn perched in a picturesque village high in the Swiss Alps. Rustic meets modern minimalism by Savioz Fabrizzi Architectes.
