I would give anything to be able to spend summers in a place like this. How beautiful!!! Faraway Farm is a remote five bedroom rural farmhouse in Carmarthenshire accessible only by foot. (or a 4×4!) Approached down a mile long rough farm track where a vehicle can be parked up, and then on foot across the pedestrian bridge over the ford towards the house. The house is completely off-grid so power is limited. The interiors are dark and atmospheric and for a new renovation appear to be completely authentic. There are log burners in the house, open fireplaces, a mixture of stone on the ground floor and wood floors on the first and second floors. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Coworking space in Madrid by María Lladó.

“An existing single level studio space was replaced with a small self-contained dwelling comprising a ground floor living space, kitchenette and bathroom with a bedroom on a mezzanine level. The form was generated from the complexities of the available space between large existing trees, privacy and set-back requirements. A material palette was generated from a desire to reference the existing house while timber, steel and brickwork are used in a compositional form to introduce a previously lacking street presence. A plywood lined interior gives a sense of calm and cohesion to the multi-faceted form. “
We often tuck the granny flat out the back but look at the magic you can create when available space and its constraints force you to think outside the box. Love this little annex by Sydney-based Watershed Design.

This is one of the most beautiful homes on one of the most beautiful properties I have ever seen. This 100-acre working farm is tucked against the Luberon mountains in southern France. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Ken Fulk repaired the 17th-century farmhouse and revitalized the grand potager, bringing the property up to date as a peaceful getaway for long family vacations. Each room in the main house, which includes the former bergerie (now a dining room), a wine cave, two kitchens, living rooms, a library and eight bedrooms, has been furnished with a transportive mix of antique and modern pieces.
