When the location is this amazing and the view is to die for, when the house is simple in its bones and that’s a good thing, when all you want is a place to gather and make wonderful family holiday memories then this might just be the house for you. The house is on the Costa Brava in Spain and the sympathetic restoration and renovation by Nook Architects allows the house to remain true to its traditional, mediterranean origins while providing a stylish, contemporary living space.

Not so much a beach shack, more a beach complex this Sullivan Island, South Carolina house by Heather A Wilson Architect excels as outdoor spaces. From screened verandahs to fireplaces to poolside lounging it has everything for large family gatherings by the sea. Bunks and slip-covered furniture, shingles and white washed timbers. It’s a picture postcard American coastal getaway.
Far, far away on the magical island of Tasmania is a secluded fishing hamlet. Not so much a hamlet, more a collection of historic shacks on the water’s edge. It’s beautiful beyond belief. That’s why it’s a world heritage area. It’s just where I crave to be right now. I want to ignore that it’s Monday. I want to escape to a simple shack, curl up before the fire with a book and wonder what sort of fish you’re going to catch for dinner. Yes there’s room for one more. You can fish can’t you? The name of this magical getaway? Captains Rest.
As we hit the midweek grind it’s time for a virtual getaway. A stylish beach shack with room for family and friends, golden sand and sunshine, even a chance to wind or kite surf… at Camber Sands Beach in East Sussex, England. Industrial style kitchen, cool scandi style accommodation, secluded courtyard with pizza oven all nestled in the sand dunes 1 minute to the beach. Yes please! You’ll find more information at loma Beach House.
Soon. I know it won’t be too far away. I just have to make it through another month then spring will slide into summer. Days in the sun, the taste of salt in the air, sand squeaking underfoot, waves slapping the beach in my sleep. Until hot sunny days are actually here I’ll keep my summer dream alive with these photos of a bijoux holiday bolthole in Provincetown by interior designer Glenn Ban.
