A restrained colour palette, carefully curated furnishings, layers of texture and a view of Bondi Beach. What more could you want? This stylish North Bondi house (with interiors by Tamsin Johnson) is part of Contemporary Hotels‘ stable of luxury accommodation which means one thing. You can indulge yourself and book a stay.
It’s that time in Australia where winter skies are the brightest blue and the days warm enough to believe that winter might just be over. Doors thrown open, water views that sparkle, days that lengthen, promises of summer fun made. I can’t think of a better place to farewell winter, embrace spring and dream of a long, long summer than this beautiful Vaucluse, Sydney house with the charming name of Bohemia.

Es Bec D’Aguila is an exquisite Mediterranean estate (or finca) located in Menorca, in the Balearic Islands and is available for weekly rental. It started out in the 19th century when a family of Menorcan merchants built it as their weekend getaway, and its current owners recently renovated it and brought it back to life. The original vaulted ceilings, handmade Cuban tiles, breathtaking landscape and gorgeous decor make this an absolute dream of a destination. (Photos: Karel Balas)
TGIF! Time to escape on a little Italian holiday. For those of you who found the strict minimalism of Wednesday’s Tuscan stone house just a little too spartan (read boring) then today we’re crossing into Umbria to a large farmhouse that has been divided in very private apartments. I can hear your collective sigh from here. That’s better! Love the vintage meets industrial meets stone farmhouse vibe. Just perfect for a relaxed family or friends getaway. You can book a stay at Mazzo via Special Umbria and you can check out the sister apartment here.
Time to escape the everyday. Time for another virtual getaway. We’re headed to Montauk, New York, a village at the east end of the Long Island peninsula but we’re not headed to a home full of Hamptons’ clichés. No our getaway is a cool surf-inspired bungalow where mid century meets boho. Light, bright and perfect for up to 8 guests. I’m filing those exterior wall slats in my inspiration folder.
