Hotel Julien

Posted on Fri, 21 Oct 2016 by midcenturyjo

Time for our Friday escape. Yes if you’re chained to your desk at work and need a virtual getaway then why not join me at Hotel Julien in the heart of the historic Belgian city of Antwerp. Two 16th century properties lovingly restored, their historic features effortlessly combined with contemporary furnishings. I’ll meet you on the terrace with those lovely rooftop views. Well at least in my daydreams.

Runaway to Morocco

Posted on Fri, 14 Oct 2016 by midcenturyjo

Come take my hand. We’ll close our eyes and click our heels and be magically transported to 5 Columns, a beautifully restored 18th Century house in the heart of the Essaouira Medina, Morocco. If only it was that easy to escape the slow dragging drudgery of Fridays at work.

Potts Point Apartment

Posted on Tue, 27 Sep 2016 by midcenturyjo

I love Potts Point. I think it’s my favourite Sydney suburb. Full of history, close to the action and with that frisson of seediness meets money. The perfect base for exploring the harbour city. Now if I could just organise a few days away instead of daydreaming in front of my computer screen I might just have to stay in this fabulous apartment available through Contemporary Hotels. A stylish marriage of old and new.

Villa Anouk

Posted on Tue, 20 Sep 2016 by midcenturyjo

It’s only Tuesday and I’m dreaming and scheming of an escape from my desk. Just outside the coastal town of Essaouira in Morocco, Villa Anouk is a magical getaway from the chaos of everyday life. Join me?

Weekend getaway

Posted on Fri, 9 Sep 2016 by midcenturyjo

In my dreams you’ll find me here, kicking off my weekday worries at the door like a pair of shoes. My hardest decision at this Palm Beach house on Sydney’s Northern Beaches would be whether to stay in or venture down to the village or perhaps to one of the two beaches just minutes from the door. In my dreams life is really tough. You don’t have to use your imagination though. The Pavilion House is available for holiday let through Contemporary Hotels.
