A mountain cabin in Northern Italy

My mother is from Northern Italy and it is at the top of my travel wish list to visit (I was there once, too long ago to remember). When the opportunity does arise, I want to stay RIGHT HERE. This mountain cabin by architect Alfredo Vanotti is one of the most incredible homes I have ever seen - inside and out. A mix of concrete and wood surrounded in stone, with a magnificent view of the Italian Alps....I die. (Photos: Marcello Mariana)

And to my fellow Canadians, HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Perfect, perfect, perfect ... except my room is nowhere near as big ... and I don't have double height ceilings or walls of glorious windows but I do have a brick fireplace and a range, wooden floors and a big imagination.

Still Monday and I need more coffee

If you'd rather start (or in my case continue) your Monday with a hit of caffeine in a dark, albeit stylish cave then perhaps Abbots & Kinney by Adelaide-based architects studio-gram will help you ease into the week. If I was drinking a cappuccino in the last cafe then it's definitely short blacks here. The added bonus is that if good coffee and great surrounds aren't enough to cure your Mondayitis I hear the pastry is to die for.
