We all fell in love with Casa Cook Rhodes. Now it’s time to do the same with its sister property. Taking inspiration from traditional Greek island architecture, Casa Cook Kos has a village-like feel with one and two-storey cubist houses grouped around gardens and patios. The palette is earthy and natural with a play on dark interiors and bright outdoor spaces. From rooms to suites and villas the experience is about low-key luxury. There is one problem though. It’s not really a weekend getaway. It’s more a lifestyle runaway.
It’s almost the weekend baby and I couldn’t think of a more perfect chill out pad than this colourful bohemian getaway designed by Allison Bloom at Dehn Bloom. Fun, fab and family friendly with just enough retro rattan to make my head spin. It’s California coastal cool at its best.
It’s lovely. Light and bright, sophisticated yet relaxed, traditional yet fresh and fabulous. The perfect home … I should say second home. A stylish family getaway in the chic seaside hamlet of Corona Del Mar, California by Kelly Nutt Design.
One more from Sydney-based Decus Interiors because … well I just can’t get enough of their intelligent, curated, simply beautiful homes. Killcare House is a dramatic home away from home on the edge of a national park by the sea. What more could you want?

If you look closely this Tamarama Beach apartment is actually light, bright and very white but it’s the colourful pops of artwork and accessories that amp up that holiday feel. Oh and let’s not forget the view. Nothing says Aussie beach getaway more than an endless ocean view and a scurry across hot asphalt to get to the sand on a summer’s day.
