Time to escape the everyday. Time for another virtual getaway. We’re headed to Montauk, New York, a village at the east end of the Long Island peninsula but we’re not headed to a home full of Hamptons’ clichés. No our getaway is a cool surf-inspired bungalow where mid century meets boho. Light, bright and perfect for up to 8 guests. I’m filing those exterior wall slats in my inspiration folder. Federal by McKinley Bungalows.
Timeless and elegant but with an edge, a little frisson. Design classics meet curated collections, eclectic with personality. Old, new and of course killer art (pun intended). Gramercy Park apartment by Alberto Villalobos of interior design studio A. Villalobos.
When a designer created spaces that are pieces of art. This is the Bellechasse, Paris apartment of Joseph Dirand. It is elegant, refined, somewhat minimal, perfectly executed.
I have another villa to share with you with some serious Mediterranean vibes. Blues, greys and white are the colour scheme in this home in Capri by Swiss designer Jorge Cañete. This one has an other-worldly, magical aura that I have come to expect from Jorge’s projects (see here and here for more). Breathtaking.

I’m still in London and I’m still lamenting the fact that I can’t afford anything at all but a girl can still live vicariously through real estate listings. I must say that I could move straight into this split level apartment in an old print works factory in East Central London between Old Street and Clerkenwell. Exposed beams, bold blue kitchen and great art. Love it all. Mitchell Street, London EC1 via The Modern House.
