It’s almost the weekend and I’m dreaming and scheming of a getaway. The recently refurbished Daunt’s Albatross in Montauk on the east end of the Long Island peninsula looks like just the spot for a group of us. Now in my daydream, it’s summer and we explore the beaches and hike the trails or if it’s cold like now then we snuggle by the fire and indulge in the restaurants. Either way, the stylish yet relaxed new look for this family-run hotel is by Brooklyn-based interior designers Home Studios.

Carefully curated and utterly covetable. When the actual retail space is in a house and everything is for sale it’s not easy to leave. This Sag Harbour pop-up by The 1818 Collective was all about connecting with the community in a deeper way than a traditional bricks and mortar store.

What can I say? Swoon comes to mind. Yasmine Saleh Ghoniem is my favourite interior designer and her Sydney-based firm YSG can do no wrong. When am I moving in?

A sympathetic reworking of this San Francisco house sees many of its original elements such as the ceilings retained while the floorplan was reconfigured and a sympathetic material palette introduced. The owner’s collection of vintage Italian furniture is the star of the show as are the stunning views and sense of privacy. Hosono House by Ryan Leidner Architecture.
I had to share another project by the talented duo of Salvesen Graham because it is so wonderfully English, lots of colours – both bold and more subtle and plenty of patterns. Layering as these designers do so well and create such a welcoming home that I just eat right up. (Photos: Simon Brown)
