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. Federal by McKinley Bungalows.
Timeless and elegant but with an edge, a little frisson. Design classics meet curated collections, eclectic with personality. Old, new and of course killer art (pun intended). Gramercy Park apartment by Alberto Villalobos of interior design studio A. Villalobos.
I’m still in London and I’m still lamenting the fact that I can’t afford anything at all but a girl can still live vicariously through real estate listings. I must say that I could move straight into this split level apartment in an old print works factory in East Central London between Old Street and Clerkenwell. Exposed beams, bold blue kitchen and great art. Love it all. Mitchell Street, London EC1 via The Modern House.
An elegantly understateded home for a fashion designer and her family sees a contemporary redesign that respects the historic building in Sydney’s eastern suburbs while pushing finishes and forms. Think grand and wordly layered with textures and tones. Interior design and styling by Alwill and architecture by Luigi Rosselli Architects.

“Chinampa” is the name given to the floating gardens used for cultivation by the Aztecs. It’s also the name of a one-bedroom 58ft widebeam canal boat on London’s Regent Canal. That’s right I’m real estate stalking a London canal boat and why not? It’s a wonderful mix of vintage and bespoke, romantic and stylish. I might not dream of running away to the high seas but I could very easily settle into this small and beautifully formed home afloat. Link here while it lasts.
